Along with our 2 1/2 year old we also got her older sister and younger brother. Her younger brother is 18 months old and he has transitioned rather easily. He never slept in a crib but we wear him out so much that he has been doing rather well going to sleep. When I sing his sister to sleep he goes right to sleep as well. They are requesting that he and his sister get evaluated for early interventions. He needs it. He has one word, mamamama, and I don't think he knows what it means. I tried to feed him some ice cream and the battle he put up showed me he had never eaten with a spoon. Thankfully he does love to take a bath. I do worry because he doesn't answer to his name and he seems to be in his own little world. The first two days he did fight when we tried to hold him but he is doing great with that now.
Older sister is 8. Hmmmm, she walked into our house happy as a clam, stated she wasn't changing anymore diapers and asked to be adopted. She shows all the signs and behaviors of a child with RAD. We watch her closely.
