It's been a while since I've done a Big Brother C update and I'm hoping to get back on track and do them more often. Ideally once a week, but we will see how it goes.
So we are all back in school and have adjusted pretty well to the back to school schedule. This week has been an off week for him, normally on school days he goes to bed between 7:30-7:45 and gets up anywhere from 6 to 6:30. He's been wanting to sleep in lately, (maybe going through a growth spurt?) but unfortunately our schedule during the week doesn't allow for him to sleep in. So I've been finding myself dragging him out of bed at 6:45 to make it out the door on time at 7:30.
Therapy has been different this week. OT was on vacation so he missed his time with her. PT and Speech had re-eval's, so isn't wasn't quite his normal sessions. This kid is
big huge on routine! So anything minor throws him off and this week has definitely thrown him for a loop.
They also started a new learning program at school, which he seems to enjoy so far. He is a big StarFall fan and has really enjoyed playing and learning with it over the years - he uses it at home and at school.
He also got a hair cut this week, which he absolutely hates but hoping and praying it will continue to improve. We are keeping his hair short and cutting it more frequently - like every 2 weeks.
We have our annual Walk for Autism Speaks coming up at the end of September, so I ordered shirts this week and every year I've had them personalized to Big Brother C. I can't wait to see them and I'm excited to meet our family & friends at this years walk!
Big Brother C's current favorites to read/watch is The Polar Express and his favorite meal is Lemon Pepper Chicken! He's also currently working on the sign for train, blanket and mom - we use Signing Time a lot! His favorite words to say are train, no and yeah!
So I think that's it for this week, stay tuned for another Big Brother C update soon!
