Brayden's hands are not used for much. He can put his left pointer finger in his mouth for comfort. The majority of the time he requires help getting his hands in to place. Sometimes you can see him concentrate and start moving his cute little fingers around trying to understand what he is touching. The movement is so little but still so big. Each time he does it, my heart smiles.
This week we ventured to the Natural History Museum in DC. Brayden was not overwhelmed by all the noises, people or even the 3D dinosaur movie (no 3D glasses for him). We went into a room of the museum for children called the Discovery Room, a place where the kids could look, touch, smell, etc. everything in the room. Brayden's little hands were busy. Each item placed in his hands, he toke a moment to process what it was and then slowly moved his fingers around feeling what it was.
He did he best with an abacus, really moving his fingers around the beads.
Then he had to hold a skull.
