Bright eyes has stepped up to become quite a good little apprentice in recent weeks. I have really noticed him enjoying doing things with me. Some examples: we took the bins out together and he helped me take the clothes off the line the other day. He has been inviting us to play constantly.

It's a good change. I was getting concerned that even though we were seeing lots of good contact with our RDI program, he was still operating on his own.

Since our holiday, he has been eating normal food and doesn't seem to be suffering any adverse effects. This is also a good step forward. Of course, he still doesn't actually like anything except Vegemite sandwiches...

Our new challenge is his habit of yelping while he watches TV. It's incredibly distracting, but there is nothing we can do about it.
