My little boy has been in the mountain city for the past almost three months. And I have been commuting back and forth every weekend since I brought him back home. Given that we only have the weekends to bond and spend time together, I usually take a lot of photos of him as well as videos of his antics.
After his birthday, the little boy was still getting gifts in paperbags. For some reason, little Z was more interested with the paper bag rather than the content. And here are three videos to prove it:
So funny! 😀
I actually had a fun time watching him get more interested with the paper bags. He even complained when I had to take the bag out of his hands so he can play with his new toys. LOL! So cute! 😀
He has also been learning to pick his food. A couple of months ago, I bought him Gerber Puffs to try if he will like it and if he can already eat it. The puffs were really soft and it melts in your mouth. That makes it easy for my little Z to eat it. He usually sucks his food before swallowing instead of chewing it though he has started chewing his food every now and then.
Anyway, I used to have to guide his hand to pick his food. Sometimes I even put a piece in his hand and guide his hand to his mouth. So it was really amazing to see him being able to get one and eat it on his own. 🙂
Every little accomplishment of my son is actually a big one because it only goes to show that it doesn’t matter that he has Down Syndrome. He can do things that normal kids his age can do in his own sweet time. I am just so proud of him. 🙂
