This week's OT update

Baby W seems to have gotten over his case of Mr. Crankypants and is back to normal toddler meltdowns and power struggles so his OT session went really well.  He has decided he is terrified of Miss M's blanket, though, so getting him to lay or sit down to swing is so hard.  Its great input for him, though, and helps work his muscles so we keep trying to get him back to enjoying it.  Neither of us can figure out why he's suddenly so afraid of it.  He wasn't that fond of it at first but then seemed to like it but now he doesn't even want to touch the blanket.

Miss M brought her pop out tunnel today.  We were laughing at how he would NOT go near that tunnel the first time she brought it and today he was helping her undo all the Velcro straps to open it up and he could hardly wait to zoom right through it.

He did a lot of fine motor work today.  He's been using just his pointer finger on one hand to manipulate things so she was getting him to use both hands and more of his fingers to push and turn and slide things on the toys.  We also built a caterpillar with some pop beads that were pretty tight so he needed help at first to get them on and off but by the end he was doing it on his own.  You could just see his arm muscles flexing trying to get those beads off, though!

My Busy Little B was a proud little pig!

My Busy Little B's mainstream class has been busily preparing for a musical event :)  On the day of the performance, they did two concerts, one during school hours and one in the evening.  They had to change B's transport time so he could participate so he got over to his special needs classroom late that day but I'm told he did great with the extra time (in fact, we have a meeting soon to discuss increasing his transition time again so he's in the mainstream classroom longer) and had lots of fun performing. 

After dinner we loaded everyone up and went to see his evening performance.  It was during bedtime so the littlest ones were kinda cranky but they held up fairly well.  Iz and W were so ready for bed by the time we got home, though LOL

All the songs were about the farm and B got to play a pig!  He kept telling me he wanted to wear pink but I couldn't find his pink shirt so he wore red instead.  It wasn't until we were pulling into the parking lot for the parent performance that he told me he had wanted to wear pink because he was going to be a pig!  If I'd known, I would have looked harder for that pink shirt :p  I just thought he was in the mood for pink!
