Likes- All. The. Things. :o) She loves being outside! Playing with rocks, sticks, seeds, dandelions, grass and pine cones is a favorite pastime. It is also one of my favorite things she does. What else? Annique can be found climbing trees, playing at parks, drawing with markers, playing with stickers, enjoying dessert, playing with her grandparents, reading, crawling under our bed, making creations in the play kitchen and elsewhere. And she LOVES a good tickle!
Dislikes- Camille ruining anything she has put together, tomatoes, doing something that is not her idea (IE, time to come inside), messing up or being wrong or failing, using other bathrooms. (Yes, STILL. Child psychologist enters stage right.)
Social skills- Annique is getting better at playing with kids instead of alongside them. She is a little behind in this area. At school, she won't be the one directing all the girls to get into play dresses and then orchestrating a princess family. However, she will put on a dress and she may actually participate instead of go play elsewhere in the dress.
Physical skills- Still behind a bit. Her old PT that helped her to walk said she might be behind for a long time. This girl is definitely not athletic. She does LOVE to climb and is in almost constant motion- especially when she is explaining her art or telling a story she is very excited about. We think she has psychomotor overexcitablitly. (Read the paragraph under the heading "Psychomotor Overexcitability" at this site- it describes her to a T!) She is not spatially aware of her body and injures herself almost daily in this regard.
