Apple, yes, plum, orange

The latest echololia. It took me a bit to realize he was saying "plum" and not "mom." So we'd have these conversations:

K: Apple
Me: You want an apple?
K: Yes. Mom.
Me: Good talking! I'll go get you an apple
K: Orange.

Heh, It took me a bit to realize that they were just a list of words, too. He's got a hand motion that goes with it, like he's packing things. It goes with his absolute love of the letter P and of the Fun With Phonics DVD, from what I can tell. About halfway through, when they pack for the picnic. You'll see what I mean.

And also related to his love of the letter P, he spontaneously picked up Hop on Pop and started reading the words hop and pop. He won't let me open the book. He insists on carrying the book over and trying to prop it up on a computer monitor, where it falls over, but he sounds out the words on it.

I think this may end up being part of a theme at some point. Thanks Wordle.

The Media Is Not Your Friend

Ugh. My Google Reader has a news feed for stories on autism. After reading this one, I'm now totally depressed, since the article is warning me that my son is going to suddenly die from a seizure disorder, get raped, and then drown after committing some other act of self injury.

I think I need to put a positive story filter on my reader or something.
