Shift Report:

Whilst Claire was out doing the shopping, Fela did a colouring of ‘Moana’ from the self-titled film. I started the colours off to give him  a guide.

Fela started a DVD of Charlotte’s Web, and started to nod off during it. As he was having a late lunch, Claire left. All his meals were a bit later today except for dinner which was back on track.

He helped me bake a chocolate and banana cake. We played some card games together. He began to nod off as we were about to do the board for Flip Out so I let him sleep for  an hour.

After dinner, I gave him a facial trim which he thoroughly enjoyed as he did not want it to end. I gave the makaton sign for ‘finished’ repeatedly and explained that I was tired. After I gave him some witch hazel on a cotton pad to apply to his face.

At the time of writing, I am just about to prompt him out of the bath. I discovered ‘120 Bible hymns while you sleep (without instruments)’ on Youtube so hopefully it will help to relax him enough to induce a restful sleep tonight.

Arousal States – Start: 1 Baseline End: 1 Baseline Did his state change? No to Did he have a bowel movement? Yes Bristol score: Was Fela incontinent?: No Did he have vigorous exercise?: No – Why no exercise? We were about to get ready to go to Flip Out and Fela started falling asleep.
