Maybe 1 day I won’t feel the need to tell you every little new thing that Jay does.
Today is not that day. I just get so excited about each bit of progress. It makes me feel proud and hopeful.
Jay took it upon himself to brush his own teeth a couple of nights ago. He actually did a decent job of it too. Of course, I took a picture but it’s still sitting in my camera and is not available right now, but you believe me don’t you?
He also is getting much better with his pencil grip. No longer does he hold it like this,
now he holds it more like this
He’s showing appreciation. Need an example. He has discovered a youtube video that he LOVES. I’ll even link to it later so you can see what I mean. (I need to get the video out of my phone and onto the laptop). When the video is over, he asks me to “press” which means replay and then once he sees that it’s starting over he pushes me away and applauds me. Then I say “you’re welcome“.
Last but most certainly not least, he pooped in the toilet yesterday. I may be exaggerating a little bit but let me have this one. He sat for a very long time and then an ever so small amount of poop made it’s way into the toilet. I hooted and hollered and kissed and hi-fived so he would know that it was a good thing. I don’t know if it will happen again anytime soon but I really am hoping that he will make the connection between pee, poop and the toilet. He’s almost 4 (next week) and wears size 5 diapers and while I’m still OK with changing him now, I don’t much like the idea of changing his diapers for the rest of his life. *Fingers crossed*
