Today is a big day for us so i wanted to mark it with a post also.
It’s my little boys birthday. he is 2 years old now! Soon i can call him mister :).
It was a very busy day and a happy one too (i finally managed to incite only the people i wanted and avoid to make fake smiles and pleasantries to those who i don’t really like). Yeay me. My husband is slightly pissed about this because i am talking about some family members from his part of the family, and he feels obligated to invite them ( nothing serious, nothing which can’t be solved with a few beers). And because he (my husband) stopped reading my blog a while ago i hope i can talk freely. Honestly i would have hated to smile and serve people who don’t care shit about us only if they need something, or only when it’s a necessity to visit us (like Christmas holiday). That’s that.
About my little boy, he has 2 years so hes not that little any more. he learns things fast and he is more sociable then before, at least with the familiar crowd. He doesn’t really talk yet (that’s our biggest worry). he has things that he says like when we go to bath he says bathbathbath (of course in our language) he says “i” “a” “e” and he points at the letter itself when he sees them. maybe he will learn to read first :). who knows.
He also understands a lot, when i call for him he usually comes but not when i call his name but when i say what we will do like “come to take a walk with mami” or ” come let’s eat” and he knows what i want from him. i don’t know how much i have to be worried because of the autism spectrum diagnosis. i definitely see that he is different and that he needs more time to learn things the usual toddler does by imitating but he learn others faster. my other worry is the eating, he only eats familiar things, and very little in general.
I know techniques to teach him speak but i don’t know how to explain to him that he needs to eat and to try different food and fruit. This is the hardest part for me.
But today is about celebration so i wish happy birthday for my little one and for anybody who celebrated birthday today!!
