Joy-filled Wednesday: see Max use both his hands!
I will finish up Max's birth story tomorrow, my tear ducts need a break after the last two posts. Meanwhile, here's a video of him that shows how well the Botox injections worked on his right hand. It's always been the more messed-up one (to use the technical term), and he typically has to be reminded it even exists. But he sat down at the table and, without prompting, immediately started playing with two hands. Yes, I have a mildly annoying tendency to shout "YAY!" when Max does great stuff. It's a lot better than "DUDE!", I think.
That pink mystery substance is Flarp. I highly recommend it for kids with sensory issues, kids who need to be encouraged to manipulate their fingers and kids who generally like to make a mess. In other words, all kids! Disclaimer: I am not responsible if the stuff ends up in your child's hair. And trust me, it will. Disclaimer: I am also not responsible if it, say, ends up in your work tote bag and at the coffee shop you reach inside for your wallet, feel something slimy and let out a loud scream. Trust me, this could happen, too.
