Ch Ch ch Changes

We’ve noticed the pay few weeks that Nathanael has been a bit more sensitive.  He also has very specific needs and dissolves into  a puddle when they aren’t what he had in his head.  For example, the other day he asked me for a train for the car.  I got him random green train. He was in break-down mode because I didn’t get him Gorden.   At night, we get gakki (milk) ready together.  He holds a sippy cup while I pur milk.  He then sorta,kinda,not really twists the top on.  I didn’t have him help me the other night – melt down . . . And we’ve had a few issues at school (umm, his good buddy has bloddy scratches on his face courtesy of Nathanael).

I do get it.  When you have a way that you want to do things and then it doesn’t work out that way – well, it can get irritating.  We noticed this happening about 8 months ago.  But, for the last 6 months he’s been quite the reasonable kid.  So, we are thinking he’s moving onto the next development phase & this is how he copes.  We noticed a need for more sleep, eating somewhat more, and in general – a more fragile Nathanel.  While I’m sorry he has to go through this to get to the next place, I look forward to all the amazing things he will be able to do, think, process, and understand.
