Well, I haven’t posted in a few days because we had some major Orion behavioral traumas recently.
On Saturday we were supposed to go to Grandma’s for a birthday celebration for her but had to cancel. Orion woke up and refused a diaper change and proceeded to throw a 4 hour fit! He tore numerous diapers to shreds and insisted on being naked. But he still doesn’t know (due to his sensory integration dysfunction) when he needs to go potty so he proceeded to pee on me and the floor on a few occasions…all while screaming. The fits went far into the night and he even woke up through the night screaming. It was horrible. But the next day he was calmer. He still fought the diaper changes but he didn’t scream for hours.
Today we had our Occupational Therapy appointment and he was just fine. He was very engaged in everything.
When we got home I set him up on the floor with a puzzle to play with. I walked out of the room for 30 seconds and came back to find him sitting on the dining room table covered in my makeup. He had opened up my makeup case and colored on his face, hands, knees, and shorts. I had to put him in the tub to get him clean. Here he is with his face painted with lipstick and blush!
