At least, I think it did. Hard to say since we only met the therapist once, and then almost a month ago.
But we met Mr. D again a couple of days ago. He was duly impressed with Nolan’s ever-present ring stacker.
We’re also supposed to focus on turn-taking games. As I understand it, the more we can actively engage with Nolan, the more he’ll try to communicate in any other setting.
In other news, we’ve had to stop giving him a bath before bedtime. Sometime the last couple of months, kiddo here has developed a horror of bath time. This is particularly distressing for John, since he took over baths when we moved up north.
Typical toddler behavior? Beats me.
He plays just fine after his initial protest, so I don’t think it’s a fear of the water. My best guess is that he knows that bath means bedtime is imminent, so he reacts accordingly. Easy enough to fix: bathtime moves to midafternoon, right after his nap. I’ll let you know how that works out.
Hope your week has gone well. We’re doing our best to stay warm here these days!
Have a good weekend, everybody!
