I do believe Kaiden is sulking. He was getting all squirrely on my lap while I was trying to write down his spasms (I keep track of them) and after rearranging him for the 3rd or 4th time I finally said, frustrated, Kaiden would you just sit still for 2 seconds!!! And after that he put his head on my shoulder and gave me a look. Gave me these big blue puppy dog eyes with that sad look. Did not go back to squirming, and now he’s in the pack n play so I can pump and he just laid there sucking his thumb for about 20 min. Now he seems happy again though.

This behavior is new, first time he's reacted that way (although certainly not the first time I've told him to settle down ) - any idea where it falls in the developmental range?

OMG I felt so bad though, I didn't yell at him but the look he gave me just about brought me to tears.

I don't know, but I have been there. It's nice when they seem to understand.

Aww! I couldn't tell you where it lands on the devleopmental range, just that it's a totally normal phase to hit. I think it's pretty "on time" for Kaiden honestly, my first thought was a 12-18 month range they usually start to understand enough to stop instantly squirming and crying and start having other reactions.

he's a funny kid. He's right on time for some things and very delayed in others. Suprises me bc given him having Downs I would have thought that some of the things he has done, he wouldn't have done this early.
