Faaeq is really obsessed with long sleeved shirt and long pants now. When he is home in the evening, the first thing he'll do is to take off his shorts, and struggling to take off his sleeveless top or short sleeved shirt, and find a fully covered clothes. Last Saturday, after he took his morning bath, he was really mad at me for putting on him shorts and sleeveless.. mengamuk2 sampai lah dia jumpa balik baju tidur dia dlm bakul baju kotor, and pakai semula baju tidur tu! haih. I guess he doenst like the feeling of exposed legs and arms.. the trick to get him to wear them is to let him run around in his diapers dulu lah kot...
Autistic kids seems to be extreme with sensory. And now faaeq makes so much noise humming and babling and mumbling.. he wont stop 'talking'... in his own language that is! and i read somewhere that making 'noise' is some kind of self preservation technique for an autistic child. It means when he hums and makes sounds, the outside noises and distractions can't get in. Logic. He used to cover his ears when he hears certain sounds that he doesnt like. Kdg2 lagu, kdg2 bunyik burung, kdg2 bunyi motor...
ni time ibu nyanyikan lagu Adele kat dia. Ok la... suara ibu tak sedap eh! Grrrr...
Also, i've read a real life experience told by an autistic person (he's an adult now and giving talks on his experience when he was small and having to deal with everyday challeges that ordinary people wont understand).. he said when he was small, he hated haircuts coz it was really painful for him! The sound of the machine, the hair fall, everything about the haircut made him in pain.. he couldnt explain why he felt that way.. maybe it was sensory overload.. i dont know.. but that explains why faaeq will scream his lung out whenever he has his haircut. Maybe. Who knows what he's going thru. That explains why we let his hair grow long and try to minimize the haircut sessions for him. Besides, he looks so cute with long hair, kan? kehkehkeh
At Rembau. He can climb the tress, run here and there, play with sand, smoke.. i let him be. takpelah lepas tu boleh mandi.
So I guess for the time being we just hv to deal with his latest obsession- baju lengan panjang and seluar panjang. Bagus jugak, nyamuk tak gigit.. stylo puna de gak kot.. haha
he put his puzzle pieces in the basket and couldnt find them among the clothes :P
Autism. Ya gotta love it.
Till then, have a great day u ols!
