She is friendly and outgoing and inventive. She indulges in all of her senses, from smelling every bottle of shampoo on the drugstore shelf to slowly rubbing lotion up and down, and up and down, and up and down her legs! She will take enormous amounts of time washing her
Li has a hard time with her senses, too. She cannot handle bright light. She frets if she hears a repetitive noise and cannot make it stop. She has a hard time chewing and swallowing broccoli. She would rather tuck that green veggie into her cheeks like a chipmunk instead of actually eating it. She ends up with broccoli juice running down her shirt! She can be incredibly un-huggable...and yet very huggable at the same time!
Li is not all that excited about wearing jeans. She spends most of her time in leggings and really cute skirts.
Which is fine with me, because she looks, well, really cute!
Yep, our Li makes life really interesting and really fun.
Understanding her sensory disorder helps us understand her.
It is always good to connect with others that are struggling with the same issues. So we have joined a
SPD blogger network.
Networking is always a good thing, right?
