Empathy

By Babyjandbean
Empathy
Bean did the cutest thing today. Ok, well, he did a lot of cute things but one action was especially heart warming.
After his nap, Bean was climbing all over Husband playing like a cute little monkey. He (accidentally, obviously) hurt Husband. When husband vocalized the pain, Bean stopped, rubbed Husband's face and smiled at him.
We recreated the scenario to see if Bean would respond the same way or if it was just a fluke. When Husband started fake crying, Bean stopped playing and gave his daddy a hug!
I guess that amazing empathy that is characteristic to Williams syndrome is beginning to emerge.
If you are interested, I wrote about personality traits characteristic to Williams syndrome here.
Bean is such a sweet little guy and it's so exciting to watch his development and the emergence of his amazing personality!
