|Noah's Valentine's Day Masterpiece
He's also been enjoying as much time as we'll allow him on his communication device. We rather let him navigate what he wants to do. Sometimes he wants to talk - sometimes like any other child, he simply wants to play. He doesn't realize that his play is also designed to assist him in furthering his eye gaze communication skills. It's a win-win for us.
Noah also successfully licked his very first Valentine lollipop until it was completely gone. In the past Noah didn't quite have the oral coordination for lollipops and would attempt to bite them - which made me nervous as that could be a choking hazard. So I took a break for a long while knowing his chompers were strong. But today, almost as if just magically understood the goal, he sucked it without ever attempting to bite, lick after lick using his tongue appropriately like any typical person would. Likely the sweetest thing you could ever imagine. And a huge accomplishment for him. And boy was he ever so happy about it.
