When he’s still.

My youngest vibrates. Sitting without moving is very challenging for him. He regularly picks his skin open and peels apart the laces on his shoes at school during class. At church, it’s not unusual to find him slithering under pews. His dad and I will sometimes strategically sit on separate pews, one bench behind the other, so that our son’s movement is contained between us. Bella savors the times he plays video games, because he is still long enough that she can truly snuggle in and enjoy his warmth. He is still, but not quite still enough, while reading, because he very enthusiastically flips his pages. Since his movement is focused just in his fingers on the controller while playing a video game, Bella isn’t jostled. Happy noodle horse.
