April 16th, 2010
Today, Kinnick's OT and PT brought a box of beans. Kinnick slowly allowed us to stand her up in the beans without socks. Then, slowly she allowed us to sit her in the beans while we covered her feet in the beans and dropped beans on her hands and head. Then slowly she touched the beans and tossed some over the side of the box.
Tonight while I was working in the kitchen, I heard a noise. When I looked in the great room, this is what I found.....
I guess she has accepted the bean box! I love this "starting with the feet" approach! It really works!
Carver is still unable to wear his right CI. So, he's only getting to work on hearing with one ear. However, he has started copying us when we growl at him. I'll growl at him and then he'll growl back. He doesn't do it every time, yet. I'm going to keep my flip handy, so I can tape it. It's so cute! This is really pretty big news in my mind. If he can copy a growl, we're onto something!
