Now we are all home and snug as a bug in a rug. Silly boy was not doing a very good job of faking sleep. Or maybe he was.....perhaps he smiles in his sleep. And yes he sleeps with THREE pillows!!!!! He also has to have his projector music player that throws up a picture on the ceiling, a flashlight, several stuffed animals, and several layers of blankets. There is a whole process when tucking Jadon in at night. He started sleeping with a flashlight when we got him a small plug in the wall night light and started turning off the lamp on his dresser at night. At first we were just letting him use a regular battery operated push button version. The problem is that he would fall asleep with it on and then it would stay on all night. Every couple of days it would need new batteries. Daddy decided that we needed to come up with a better option. He needed a flashlight. That is how you keep the monsters away after all. After thinking on it for a couple of days Daddy found a solution......a flash light you have to crank to charge it! The bonus is this is great therapy! It is hard for him to do on his own right now but I have no doubt he will get the hang of it!
And I will leave you with my favorite thing from today. I loved watching Jadon show Ms. Karen (his OT) how he can catch a ball with two hands! He was so proud and happy! He was so joyful. I loved it!
