About my doctor's appointment, they took another picture of my head. And then I got to see the doctor. He poked at my head and measured it and asked how I was doing. I said great. Not really, because I was exhausted from talking all night long. Instead, mom spoke up for me. He said everything looked great. My shunt is draining like it is supposed too. The only thing is my brain really hasn't expanded any from last year. That's okay because I am still learning things with the brain that I have.

The next task was a matching game. Mom was a little worried because she didn't think I could do it. I wasn't sure myself. But it was a piece of cake. Ms Terri, showed me a circle, and then she showed me two more objects (a circle and a square), and I was supposed to choose which one matched the circle. After looking them both over, I grabbed for the circle. Mom was shocked. I think the therapists were too. So we did it again. But with different shapes. This time she showed me a star, and then two more - of a star and a triangle. I had to think about this one a little longer. But I grabbed for the right one again. I grabbed the star. Everyone clapped and was so proud of me.
The next thing on the list was giving me this strobe light - which I love. Ms Brandy, turned it on and I moved the light around and played with it for awhile. Then she turned it off. If I wanted it back, I had to press the more button on the switch. I did it instantly - 10 times in a row. But my time was running out and I had to put it away even though I kept pressing the more button. Mom told me NO MORE.

Like I said before, mom has been trying to get a video of me talking. But I refuse to amuse her. Except the other night, I let one slip. Just a little one. As you can see from the video, I do not like the camera and I freeze up. If you be patient and listen carefully, I said dad in the video. Hopefully that will satisfy mom for awhile.

I am really starting to babble a lot more. I am working on perfecting the 'da' down. Every now and then, I get some other sound out like 'ga'. But I seem to not remember how to say them over and over.
Now the story behind the pictures. Mom is always trying to get a good picture of me. And well I give her a run for her money. She usually ends up getting one but I make her work for it. I have to amuse her sometimes. Well if you don't know my dad he doesn't like the camera either. So we decided to protest the other night and not look at the camera. She keeps trying to get a video of me talking so everyone can hear me. But I definitely do not cooperate then.

Smell my feet
Give me something
good to eat!
I dressed up as Batman this year. I was kind of excited about getting all dressed up, but I didn't know there was a mask involved. But I humored mom and kept it on, but I was glad to see it go after awhile. I got to go door to door with my cousins this year. All in all, it was fun!
Of course, today is Halloween, and I am going to be Batman. I already started early trick-or-treating, I had to go by my grandma's work and to my friend Jenny's work and show off and then to therapy. Everyone thought I was adorable. I wasn't too fascinated getting all dressed up. Maybe I will be more in to it tonight when I go over to my other grandma house and my nephews house.

I love listening to music, especially piano music. So when the show Everybody Loves Raymond comes on I get really excited. At the end of every show there is a little song they play. I stop whatever I am doing and I listen and get all excited because I like the music. Watch the video and you will see.

From the video, I am just smiling. But I knew mom had the camera out. So I wasn't acting like I usually do. You should see me when she put the camera away.

I, of course, still have therapy. For the past two weeks, I have been going to Cape to do some of my therapy. My speech therapist and developmental therapist opened up a center. So I have been going there instead of them coming to my house. It is a lot of fun there. They have a lot of cool toys that I don't have at home. Like, a ball pit, a platform swing, and they also have a sensory room. That room is pretty cool. I think I am going to keep going there just so I can swing.
