Sensory Seeking

  • Posted on August 2, 2011 at 7:20 AM

Alex has this new thing that…I really don’t know what to think of it. He is requesting people—particularly me and my mom—to push up on his two front, top teeth with our thumbs. And, if you’re not quick enough to pick up on the request he’s making, he bites your thumbs.

Okay, so the squishes I get. He’s asking for a lot of those. The jumping I get. He does a lot of that, too. I get pressing in on his ears and on his head. I get pressing his hands together. I even get the need to bite on things—though, I wish he’d stop biting people, including himself.

I get all of that. But what’s with pushing up on his teeth? Does anyone have a clue? Really, I’m asking!
