Saturday January 15th

Josh had a great day. He has a new tool: a ball
point pen. After trying to get him to work a,
pen light without success, Rose suggested a pen.
He latched on immediately. After a few minutes,
he was clicking it open and closed nonstop.
He enjoyed that all day.

We are noticing the slightest nods in response
to questions and head gesturing with subtle
mouth expressions when he needs something.

Josh is communicating.

More tomorrow. It is late.
