How much things has changed since Tommy began to win his battle against the sensory issues. We are all enjoy his progress and celebrating any of his small or big accomplishment. I truly feel a relief in my heart. We enjoy seeing Francis growing up so fast and showing us how smart and independent he is for being a 11-month old baby.
Our day was very patriotic because we had a lot patriotic activities to get ready for the 4 of July. I created a sensory box on Saturday night based on the 4 of July theme. As a fun way to work on tactile sensory processing. We also song 'God Bless America' several times during the day. We played keeping a white balloon up —Tommy is getting really good on this, followed by his little brother. Tommy got annoyed when Francis interfered trying to get the balloon. The white ballon it is because the colors of the American flag. We read the book 'F is for Flag' that talks about the American flag, and we also did some coloring on the back door. I did a lot of therapy time while doing this activities, but it was so much fun that I didn't think of therapy.
I got inspired for other moms in creating a
visual attractive sensory box.
The color for today was white.
So I chose white marker and balloon
for our fun time.
We went to eat lunch to one of our favorite restaurants. The best of all, they sale gluten free and organic meals. Tommy was so hungry that he didn't wait for us and went to pick a table and sat to wait for his food. Francis was exploring around the restaurant and showing off his new shoes —well, he was getting used to the idea of wearing shoes. While we were eating, he didn't want to be fed, so we let him to eat by himself.
Here is Tommy eating his meal.
A lot of veggies with brown rice and ginger sauce.
Here is Francis trying to eat with a fork.
But it didn't work out as he was expecting.
Here is Francis getting to the idea of
wearing shoes while walking.
When we came back the boys took a nap, while I worked in the garden for about 45 minutes. It was too hot, but I could get some work done in the garden. Today was a beautiful sunny day, but a little hot. Regardless the heat, we enjoyed our Sunday.
