On Monday, Felix and I left home at about 8.30am for our four hour drive. I timed the drive so that Felix would have his morning sleep (usually 2 hours) in the car on the way. That didn't happen! However, he was an angel; he didn't make a sound for the whole four hours. He happily watched his Play School dinosaur DVD, and although his eyes got very heavy a couple of times, he didn't give in. I was really worried because I knew he had a Speech Pathology appointment at 2.30pm and I was sure that by then he would just collapse and fall asleep on the floor and it would be a waste of a visit.
We got into Adelaide at 12.30, which was two hours before Felix's appointment. We were close to the Down Syndrome Society, so I decided to stop by there for a visit. The beautiful Gina, who does Early Intervention with all the kids up to 4 years old, very graciously gave up some of her time to stop for a chat with us and a play with Felix. I couldn't believe how much energy he had after having no sleep since 6.30am! He had the whole Early Intervention room to himself which he thought was fantastic. He spent a lot of time in the big ball pit, and did some showing off with his signing and showed Gina the actions to 'Rock a Bye Your Bear'. It was a lovely way to pass the time.

The Speech Pathologist suggested getting an ipad for Felix. She said it would definitely work as a communication tool for him and be really beneficial, so we'll be looking into getting one as soon as we can. If anyone can suggest any good basic programmes for little ones, I'd love you to leave a comment. I have absolutely no idea where to even start looking.
Stay tuned for Tuesday's adventures....
