Alex is doing it again, narrating a language-less movie. "Wall-E" was his favorite for a long time. Aside from "The Sound of Music" it's the only movie he's sat through for more than half an hour. It intrigued me at the time, his love for this movie that contains almost no language for the first hour. Now, as his own ability to use language has developed, he is enjoying the movie again while narrating the actions and emotions. The autistic brain is so fascinating!

No Batteries Required

Alex wanted a Nintendo DS like his cousin's, so he made one. Out of Legos. From memory. Here it is next to the original. I love my child's mind.
