Last week Aiden had been exhibiting some behavioral changes. He seemed very cranky and upset when we'd venture outside the house. We think it may be because he is more aware of what's going on around him since the surgery. And it may be because he was getting poked and hurt quite often in the hospital so he is just very cautious about where we take him and who we let near him. We used to be able to take him anywhere, introduce him to anyone and he was always happy-go-lucky. Last week, he cried and got upset when we took him to school, therapy, when strangers approached him and when he'd be in an unfamiliar environment. On one hand, it's great that he's more aware. On the other hand, he got upset, A LOT!

This week, Aiden seemed to get better and better each day. He's getting more familiar with the people at school and he hardly cries when I drop him off now. He seems to trust that the teachers and therapists aren't going to hurt him. He has so much energy these days. I'm lucky if I can get him to take a nap. He wants to play and walk a lot. He takes us by the hand and leads us where ever he wants to go. He loves to be outside and go for walks around the neighborhood. We definately stay very busy!
