We finally caught him smiling. He has been smiling for a while not but we haven't been able to catch it on camera. They grow and change so quickly.
Things here are good. Lucy is enjoying preschool. We had parent teacher conferences and those went well. We are always trying to decided what is the best classroom setting for her. We weren't totally convinced she's in the right place now. Right now she is in a small classroom with only 12 students and 6 of those kids also have an IEP. She will probably be in preschool for two more years and we know that we want her fully included when she goes to kindergarten. So when do we switch her to a "typical" classroom? Do we switch her? What truly is the best for her? We know what we want for her but we want to make sure we do what's best and not just what we think looks the best. I feel like we could be doing so much more for her but time just seems to go by so quickly.
Simon and Lucy get along so well. You can already see how he challenges her. He can go down the steps standing up now and so Lucy has really been working on it. She needs an extra hand. (She so short and you can tell it strains her ankles) She works so hard at it though.
We have really been working on getting more 3 and 4 word pharses. Yesterday Kevin heard her say "This is serious." It's from the Wonder Pets. It's too cute!
