A flurry of activity

What is going on?

The last three days, Bug has been more hyper than usual. I mean, hyper like he was when he was 3. It's curious and kinda frightening.

What makes it frightening? He isn't being careful. He is banging into things and people, although he is humming a lot and watching TV, the hyperactivity is scary. He misses stairs...he jumps off the furniture.

He seems to have regressed a little but is also very happy and only seizing once maybe twice a day. His regression is based on how he eats and plays and that he no longer releases the seat belt but just wiggles out of it. :(

The self-stimming and hyperactivity is through the roof.

An example:

We went to Vegas, while we were in St. George. Why not? We ate at a Buffet. TWO hours later we left. Two hours at a buffet you say? Yes. It was an adventure.

Bug was so hungry as soon as ANY food was near him he would grab it and shove it in his mouth. Then he would pull pieces out of his mouth, smash them in his hand and eat them again. Aiden dropped his toy and it rolled onto the table, knocking over Daddy's FULL Diet Pepsi into Bug's plate. Another plate and another Diet Pepsi were retrieved.

We cleaned it up. Ava was done eating and wanted to walk around on the booth seat.

Bug then spilled Daddy's new, FULL Diet Pepsi on himself and Daddy while Ava was jumping on the seat and being scolded for it.

Aiden leaned. And grunted. And then I needed to change his diaper, remove his shirt for good and clean up the high chair. While I was changing his diaper, Bug spilled ANOTHER Diet Pepsi all over the table.

All the while, we fed him. Anything and everything we could get him to stop knocking over. He kept pushing away from the table and then trying to stand up. As he was doing that, he would reach out for ANYTHING he could grab. Including the next thing he spilled: au jus for the roast beef.

Aiden needed to be fed and off to the bathroom again.

When I got back, Ava was crying, no clue why...sometimes she just cries. Bug was chirping and grabbing and Taylor was just laughing. Daddy went back to get seconds and Bug knocked over another au jus. How does he keep doing this you might wonder? I can try to explain but really...it's something you have to experience before you can fully understand.

When he is like this...we worry. And we wait. That other shoe is getting further and further off the ground.
