||Ali can amuse himself
with quite a wide range of mundane household items, his attraction to new
toys lasts just for so long. Most of the time he'd rather be tinkering about
with forks and spoons, empty film canisters, or anything else he can pick
up around the house. He has a collection of soft toys that he hardly even
look at other than the first day they were bought, even the supposedly stimulating
multi-colored wooden blocks are given scant attention except when somebody
else tries to have a go with them (Daddy in this case). He seems to show
himself extremely capable of keeping himself occupied without bothering
his parents. The toy computer that we bought for him in Miri on the previous
homeleave gives him much joy ... he's now capable of mimicking "Music.
Choose a song." and then pressing the correct enter key to select his
favorite nursery rhymes. "This ol' man" and "Twinkle, twinkle
little star" remain his favorite.
