Just gave DS half a dozen photographs - guess what he's done with them.....

I gave him about 6 photographs taken over the summer holidays that I accidently ordered duplicates of. I told him he could do anything he wanted with them as they were his (he has a couple of photos stuck to his wardrobe door, and has some in a scrapbook).

Anyways he has cut them so as to remove the people in them, discarded the people, and gleefully kept the objects from the photos, which he has demanded I watch him play with.
- Us on the it's a small world ride at Disneyland? He's kept the statue of liberty part of the pic and that's all.
- DS in Eureka in Halifax looking all excited because he's found a tardis? Yep, no surprises which part of that picture he's kept.
- DS next to a robot named scoot - he's cut out the robot and thrown the rest.

I'm not sure how I feel apart from it being a definite "Asd is alive and kicking in my house" moment. On the one hand he has kept the parts of the pictures he enjoys, on the other hand, what a fundamental difference that he has no awareness of the people in the pics, only the inanimate objects (I remember his SALT observing this too during dx process but I'd completely forgotten until now).

DS2 had some pictures we gave him, and they reside in his toy box. He takes them out occasionally to look at them. (Although, to be fair, he is still quite rubbish with scissors due to coordination issues - not a clue what he'd do to them if he could cut things out of them)

This happens all the time with ds. He loves looking at photos but will pick things out in the background like buildings, fans, etc. If he could cut this sounds like exactly the kind of thing he would do. I guess he looks at the world in a totally different way to us.
