Parent-Teacher conference

Mom and dad had a parent-teachers conference last week with Ms. Sarah. I wasn't for sure if it was going to be good or bad, because I haven't been on my best behavior last week. I think the week before got my whole schedule out of whack. I ended up taking a 15 minute nap on Tuesday and a 40 minute nap on Wednesday. I was exhausted. I really tried to stay awake but I just couldn't help it. Although the teacher told mom and dad that they didn't try very hard to wake me back up because they felt sorry for me. I already have them wrapped around my little finger...haha! But mom and dad told them to not do that anymore and wake me up. Always work, work, work with mom and dad. Ms. Sarah also had to brag on me and say that when I am awake, I work really hard. She also said that the therapists are seeing a little progress. So I guess I am not going to be getting kicked out of school. At least not yet.

I am sorry it has been awhile, it's been a little busy around here. I have so much to tell everybody. First of all, I got to go on my first field trip a couple weeks ago. My class and all the other preschool classes got to go to the fair. It was a lot of fun! Mom decided to go along for the ride. But she made sure she didn't get in the way of me having fun with all of my friends. I told her I was a big boy and she didn't need to go but she didn't listen. I guess it wasn't that bad, some of the other moms went along too. I got to see a lot of animals and play a few games. But the best thing was riding the school bus. It was very exciting!! I can't wait to go on another field trip.
I got to see my cousins, Ollie, Tori and Eli, last week again. They sure are silly. I wasn't for sure about Eli. He makes some weird noices and I got a little jealous when he was laying on my blanket and playing with my toys. But I didn't get to upset about it, I just gave him the stink eye look.

I also got to stay at my Grandma and Grandpa Mirly's this week, while mom and dad were out of town. So I got extra spoiled. I thought this week was going to be bck to normal but I was wrong. Ms Becky, my babysitter, is going to be out the beginning of this week unexpectedly. So I have to go to the babysitter across the street. She seems really nice. Hopefully by Thursday, everything will be back to normal.

In Trouble

Hi everyone! Well I kind of got in trouble today. I have found a liking to chewing on my shirt sleeve. I don't know why I like it, but I do. I have been drowling a lot and chewing on anything I can find lately. I think I may have a molar that is trying to come in, mom doesn't want to check because she thinks I may chomp her finger off. Anyways, back too today. Mom was doing laundry and I was laying on the floor minding my own business. After she got down folding laundry, she finally came to play with me and to her surprise she found something else. As I said before, I like to chew on my sleeve. So that is what I was doing and guess what, I chewed right through my shirt. And not just a little hole but several holes. I didn't think it was that big of a deal, but mom said I ruined my shirt. The good thing is that it was only a PJ shirt. You can tell from the pictures that my shirt took a beating.
I also got in trouble on Thursday when I got home from school. While I am at school, I also get therapy. During speech therapy, I decided to take a little cat nap. Dad says that I can't be taking naps while I am at school, but I just couldn't help it. I was exhausted. I'll try better this week.

All has been going well around here. I have adapted to school very well. Well enough that I don't even take naps again at Ms. Becky's. I even had an assignment already. I had to make an "All about Me" poster. I had to put things that I liked and things about me on this poster board. Mom and dad helped me. They cut out letters of my name and drew pictures that I colored in. I also put a picture of me playing the drum and a picture of me swinging because those are 2 of my most favorite things. Some of the other things I put on it were, a picture of my family, pics of me swimming, and stickers of Mickey and Goofy, because I love watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. And the numbers 1,2,3 because I love games that involve anticipation. So when you count 1,2,3, I know that something good always follows. I think I did a pretty good job on it, even though we don't get graded on it.
Another new thing that I have been working on is holding my own bottle. It is kind of hard to get my hand around the bottle because of my adducted thumbs, but I figured out another way to do it. Mom uses the Playtex drop-in bottles. So I found out that if I hold the bottle at the end and push it against my mouth, it works just as well. I still haven't perfected it and I don't hold it for very long, but I am working on it. I am also working on drinking out of a regular cup like a big boy and I have been doing very well with that. So I am sure once I learn to hold my bottle, I will be moving on to another source of drinking device. Mom is really wanting to get rid of the bottle, which we are pretty close. I usually only take one right before bedtime. Anyways, I better get to bed it is a school night.
