Never Bored,...

Empty store,...no problem for Isaac,...he'll find something to do like experimenting with the physics of centripetal force that pivots the float in a circle,...



Fancy that,...the float pivots in a circle,...every time,...Isaac was fascinated,...


Our little guy is never bored with a great big world to explore,...


What is nice is that Isaac is exhibiting more 'shared interest'  - on his terms, true, but he does want to share his discoveries, like a knot in a tree, pages of an electronic coloring book app, and the central pivot of a utility float,...


Vocabulary is expanding daily,...although Apraxia still makes communication a challenge, but Isaac is so intrepid,...he gets out what he wants to express within the limits of his ability,....


Those great big smiles go a long way in allowing Isaac to share his enthusiasm,...


"LOOK,...round and round it goes,...


When you are four years old,...Physics is FUN!!!!



"Ta dah!" says Isaac,...and yes he can really say, 'Ta dah!" - and appropriately too,...it's hilarious, but then our little guy has so much joy for life,...


Share interest is a very big development and very exciting for all of us as Isaac is showing us his world, and of course it is unique, like that knot in the tree,...Isaac really, really, really wanted to make sure we knew that knob was in that tree, and he really, really, really wants you to notice the coloring pictures on that app, and quite often, you color while HE directs the operation,...blue here, red there, and orange here to make the picture perfect, and if you make a mistake that's OK, Isaac can and WILL fix it! As for that utility float,...Daddy was working for a bit on a Saturday and we were along for the ride, but no boredom for Isaac that centripetal force kept him busy for nearly an hour!!!!


School lunches have also been an issue lately,...Isaac has not been eating his school lunch or breakfast (as he also eats breakfast at school). Not exactly surprising as sensory issues can and do trump hunger,...so this week I've packed breakfast and lunch for Isaac with concerns over transition from cafeteria food to a lunch box,...but his teachers report that Isaac has shown great interest in his lunch box lunches and EATS which is the prime importance. Of course it helps that Mama knows exactly what her little guy will eat, and from my point of view it is helpful to be able to see exactly what Isaac has eaten at school, as before I had no idea exactly how much he ate or didn't eat, but now I can see what is left over, and it is nice to make sure Isaac is eating healthy foods,...he doesn't get too much leeway in that area, especially sugar as giving Isaac sugary treats is like throwing gasoline on a fire,...Mr. NeverBored has enough energy without adding a sugar rush!!!


Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
