Singing in a group

I don't like singing in a group, I cry when i sit with everyone and they all sing. Why? I don't mind singing or loud sounds at home, the only time i've cried is when dad shouts when inter milan score a goal, really gives me a fright. I didn't cry when mom shouted when south africa scored in rugby, maybe i don't like football?! It's a bit of a mystery really. I'm definitely not sensitive to other loud noises... like the blender, vacuum cleaner etc. Any suggestions?

I've also started hitting out at others at nursery. I'm feeling frustrated because i can't communicate. People are drawn to me at nursery and hug me all the time, it's fine for 1 minute, but if it drags on a bit i don't like it and want them to stop. The only way i know how to stop them is by pushing them away. I hit mom sometimes when i don't want to do anything and she makes me do it... like going home from nursery when i'm happily playing with others. I soon hug her to say sorry though, i know what i'm doing is wrong, but i'm frustrated and don't know how to deal with it. Think mom needs to brush up on her makaton so she can teach me more signs.

Happy Birthday Erin

Can't believe you're 4 today. Last time i saw you i was tube fed. it really upset you every time i pulled it out, you were very sensitive with me and loved having me sit on your lap.. well, I'm coming to see you at Christmas and you'll see that i'm eating with a spoon now, no more tube! you may not want me on your lap this time though, i'm quite heavy now.

Hope you had a great party, sorry your present is late.

My chair, table and attention span

My occupational therapist has given me a really nifty table and chair that will grow with me, this is to help with my attention span. It's working, that's for sure. It's much easier building towers out of bricks or trying my puzzles while i'm sitting at it, rather than on my play mat. I don't have occupational therapy.. or any therapy for that matter, but the activites i do at my table will help my speech too. My speech will improve as my attention span improves... so watch this space :-)

Doing so well...

.. at nursery. I'm not needing 1-1 support at all. I'm accessing all the activities just fine, i'm confident and loved by all in the big room. I used to be a bit unstable on my feet... i still am a bit, but i'm getting stronger. I've got a massive interest in books, nursery give us a new book every friday to read the following week then we have to return them. I've already got lots of books at home but always nice to hear a new story, love the pictures the most.

It's official...

.. i've moved into the nursery room. I've left the babies room now cos i'm a big boy! There's a lot more space in my new room, plus i get loads of cuddles from all the older girls. It's brilliant fun, the garden's also bigger and i get to climb things (much to mum's dismay!).

mom says that to me sometimes, when i play with the toilet brush... pour my milk all over the floor, wash my hands in the toilet.. she says 'no, no, no!'. i think it's really funny, i say 'no! no! no!' back to her and carry on doing what i was doing. it's a great game!
