So my heart is hurting today. I'm usually not one to have an emotional breakdown on a very public place (such as this blog) but I feel like I need to let go of some heartache. Bryant has now started covering his ears in every public place he goes due to his sensitivity to sound and social anxiety with crowds. We took him to nursery today and it broke my heart to see him in a corner by himself covering his ears looking terrified. No one would go by him or try and comfort him. Ugh. I can't seem to find anyone is my neighborhood who I can be close friends with or will at least bring their kids over so Bryant can have more social opportunities. Maybe I just need to try harder. Who knows?
In other news, Bryant was assessed by the school district to see if he would qualify for the state run preschool. Apparently Bryant is super duper smart and scored in the 99th percentile for his cognitive abilities. Sweet huh? The lady assessing him said she had never seen a kid score so high and thought he was going to be absolutely brilliant. He scored very high in his language too, which was awesome because we have worked on it so much! He ended up qualifying for the preschool because he was so anxious with the interviewers. I hope this preschool can help him with his anxiety! The people from the school district thought Bryant had severe anxiety with no Aspergers and a sensory processing disorder. They recommend we wait until he's 5 to test him for sure, but I still think Aspergers fits him more. It's the same therapy either way so I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Anywho, this was a long rant. I just need to find my inner calm and have faith that everything will work out! Happy Sunday:) happy golden globes! Woot woot
Here is a video of Bryant and me hanging out. We're buddies. This will probably be boring for anyone except grandparents. I think he's pretty darn cute myself :)
