We had a laugh when I walked into Britt's room this evening. Sitting on the bed was Benji trying to figure out how to play the Alto Sax. It was so cute, I obviously had to take a picture.
Looks like we have another musician on our hands. He does love to sing songs and make up his own songs too... Such a cutie.

I am Benji... if you are new here... there is alot about me. I was born with congenital heart defects that caused me to have closed heart surgery when I was just a week old. Either due to the surgery or as a companion to the defects I also have sensory processing disorder, hypotonia, ketotic hypoglycemia and I also have some issues with me feet. I am the youngest of 6.

This morning was a struggle to get going... he wanted today to be a 'sleep' day. Convinced to get dressed and get going we made it to PT though. He didn't really want to listen at therapy. He was showing his independence and stubbornness alot.
Then we got home and he was determined to watch his Noggin and keep the kitty cat from eating his 'chicken fries'. He was reminded several times to not jump on the couch and to not walk on the coffee table. Then we had to remind Benji that while the cars go fast down the hallway it was not the Bristol Speedway. At least Murphy got her exercise in by being chased by the cars. LOL
When we went to pick up J to take him to OT all Benji wanted to do was run and play and be very hyper. Once we got J in the truck... Benji was talking a mile a minute.
And all of a sudden....
Once we got on the interstate..The truck got VERY quiet... very very quiet.
I looked in the rear view mirror and saw J looking out the window and there, behind me was a sleeping Benji. Part of me was overjoyed! Finally a nap! Then I realized that once we got to J's OT that I would have to figure out how to get Benji out and to the appointment without waking him. Thankfully, I had the umbrella stroller with me. (that old thing has been practically worn out... I need a new one)
So... Benji slept in the stroller through most of the OT session and stayed in it till we got back in the truck. And then he had lunch. And was off to the races again.
