Regression and Progress



It’s always a possibility.

I was afraid that with the move… then finding out Ty had to go to a different school. Their routine being messed up. Different bus drivers, AND spring break on top of all of it?

And I was right to be worried…

So far:

The only thing I’ve REALLY noticed about Justin is that he stopped using his button. So I have to ask him if he needs to potty. We’ve had a few accidents and he’s starting to hold it again making himself constipated.

Tyler has become more aggressive. He started hitting again. (He does this because he can’t articulate why he’s upset… he’s not really trying to hurt me… he’s trying to get me to understand. How do I know? I used to do the same thing – or something similar… I could talk, but I couldn’t always convey what I was trying to say and it would eventually get too frustrating and I’d just punch a wall). He’s hurting himself more. He’s started going potty on the floor again… and he’s not eating as much as he was prior to the move.

Jaxson doesn’t really seem to be getting better with the yogurt and soy milk… but we were supposed to do it for a month, so we’re going to keep doing it and pray it works. :/

However… along with some regression that has made life a bit harder. Especially when I feel like I got hit by a truck. Twice. There have been some new things that still show progress!

Justin ate french fries willingly for the first time in a YEAR the other day!! 😀 😀 When we moved a year ago from PA to TX (2,000 miles)… the only thing we could find on the road that he would eat besides cereal, were french fries. So, four days of fries… and apparently it took a year to want them ever again! lol

Tyler is continuing to mimic and script on a daily basis… and although he still has no interest in being potty trained, he is at least taking off his diapers and putting them in the trash (sometimes)… and has now started to try to put his shorts on after he throws them away. Sometimes he remembers he needs a diaper first… sometimes he doesn’t. 😛

Jaxson has mastered crawling and standing up. He’s getting really good at walking with furniture and because he has, he started babbling again. 😀 Mamamamama, Nanananana… no Dadadada yet. Which Daddy is trying to rectify! 🙂

So, although we might go a little batty this Spring Break… and we have a lot more work to do to regain those skills that have regressed, we’re going to be celebrating the progress being made. 🙂
