MMan is changing so fast and is becoming quite the little personality. He wants to do everything the rest of us do: no more eating with his fingers, food goes on forks and spoons. He has a great Spiderman move he uses when he wants out of the tub: think both feet and fingertips on the edge of the tub. Because of his lightning quick movements, there are no photos. He has recently taken a liking to music and will motion for us to turn music on, climb on the ottoman and start bopping. If it's live music, dancing on the floor will work too.
He is now regularly signing to communicate. Eat, drink, change, more, please and all-done come fluently and he is quite proud of his progress.
His smiles light up the day!
GGirl is also maturing in leaps and bounds. She loves school and riding the bus. The first couple weeks of school she did not like to ride the Headstart bus in the morning. "I hate it!" she would exclaim and after investigation, it was because there were shoulder harnesses she did not like. But, when they decorated the bus for fall and put her name on a pumpkin on the wall, that changed everything! The grin that lights up her face when she gets off the bus is priceless.
In the evenings we snuggle a little longer, linger over bedtime stories and enjoy earlier bedtimes.
