So another day of trying to get my little boy acclimated. It will be two weeks tomorrow. I went and sat in his "Safe" room and just closed my eyes, and ignored him. Ive been given advice not to always engage but just sit and relax too. He came and sat about 6 inches from me. I let him be. I just spoke to him sweetly and then let him smell my hand. I try and move slow around him as he startles easily but is definitely doing better. For being such a good boy, I offered him a treat which he ate out of my hand. So trivial for most of you but huge accomplishment. I wanted him to know I was so proud of him. He started playing with some toys after and left the room for a few, I came back in and he was in his bed relaxing so I petted him, and he looks sleepy so I left. I cannot wait till he runs to me and sleeps close! We still have a ways to go, and Im hoping another week will do this!
