we headed home to get a belt for fela and then headed straight to bathpool. Fela was full of smiles while in the car (Please see arousal for when we were walking)
fela was happy again towards the end of our walk and when we were in the car.
we returned home and fela listened to music while lunch was prepared. Fela ate well and after he watched the polar express, requesting for staff to leave him. He seemed to really enjoy the movie as he was silent thoughout. Fela had his snack snack and has requested some music which he is currently listening to happily. Fela had an early tea due to going to water world. After fela had finished his evening meal he went and sat in his rocker and let his meal ready before getting ready to leave. Upon arriving at water world fela did really well and did brilliantly at getting changed. Fela and zoe went in to the pool while I sat on pool side observing. I saw that fela had started to rock and become vocal please see arousal state. Unfortunately fela declined to go back in to pool even with a lot of positive encouragement from staff. once in the changing rooms Fela was very happy and full of smiles, we then got ready to return home, once home zoe did the board with fela and he appeared happy, he then relaxed listening to relaxing music on YouTube, Fela had his evening hot drink and snack and then had a phone call off Mama, after Fela got ready for his bath, he happily splashed away in bath on writing this report fela is up in bed
