Will has started to do a bit more talking.
It seems like almost every day he’s not only adding new words to his vocabulary, but he’s also actually using those words to tell us what he wants.
His latest thing is to constantly, and I mean constantly, ask for a bath.
Part of it is that in our new home, we have a jacuzzi,
and quite frankly,
autism + sensory issues + a jacuzzi = pure happiness
The other part is that everyone in our home just lives for seeing Will’s smile and so if he asks for anything, someone usually obliges.
(in other words, Will.is.spoiled.)
And I’ll admit, I am completely guilty of giving in as well, as scene (or heard) in the video 😉
So, when Will asked to go in the tubby, Henry took him upstairs, filled the tub, and gave in.While the tub started out as a nice and relaxing time for Will, where his senses were calmed and his mood made stable, Emma quickly decided that if Will was getting a tub that she was as well…And this is certainly not the first time she has jumped into the tub with Will,BUT, it was absolutely the first time EVER that Will really played with Emma.
PLAYED.WITH.HER!And, something even bigger, but while they were playing, in between his giggles, William called her “Emma.”My son.said.his sister’s name.
And I cried.
