So its much calmer here now. I dont have to be running in to see why Nolan is crying as much as I was. She can walk by him and doesnt seem to have the urge to hit him or push him. YAY. I have been praising this as I see it by telling her I like the way she is keeping her hands to herself. Her teacher said that she has been swatting a little less in school too-although she did pinch one of the aides pretty hard the other day. Who knows where that came from! Apparently she got her good! Her teacher also told me that her hand movements seemed to be more pronounced though. This I do not want! I know it shouldnt (b/c she cannot help it) but sometimes just the sound of it drives me up the wall! (where does that saying come from? what a weird thing to say, I will have to look that up!) So, I was thinking about maybe bracing one of her arms? What do you Rett mommies think? I want to see if it makes her feel better-obviously if it makes her more agitated we wont continue but I think it might make things better for both of us! I need to hear your stories on this! Chime in!
Well Nolan is up from his nap-back to work for me!
