Henry has love reading books for as long as I can remember. He will sit patiently for 45 minutes or more while I read. Lately, though he has taken a more active role. He began by lifting the flaps. That was a month or so ago. Last week he started turning the pages as well and today he demonstrated his mastery of the skill.
I actually have him trained to wait until I lift the page slightly. He then moves his head so he can see what is on the next page before grabbing the page and patiently moving it across from right to left.
He seems to have connected each page with both the pictures and words.
Otherwise, the Hand, Foot and Mouth disease has yet to result in a significant fever and the sores remain limited. As far as we can tell, Henry has know significant sores in his mouth. He is eating as well as ever.
