Griffin is going to start school the 18th and I'm sure you understand I'm nervous for him.... it's a Early Childhood Developmental Preschool class at our local Elementary School. I went out to buy him all the required school supplies and was hit with the thought that he is growing up so fast... it seems like yesterday that he was just a tiny baby and now he is going to school!

As for the school supply list I am surprised at the items they request... here's the list.
2 - Boxes of Wet Wipes
2 - Large Boxes of Tissues
1 - Pkg of 6 Dry Erase Markers
1 - 4 oz Bottle of White Glue
1 - Box of Triangular Crayons
1 - Package of Pipsqueak Washable Markers
2 - Large Glue Sticks
1 - Book Bag ( no wheels)
1 - Change of Clothes for Your Child
Plus a $35.00 registration fee .....

Whew I know that is not half of what the older kids have to bring heck the Kindergartners have triple the amount of stuff but boy this is preschool... =D

For other news... Griffin is doing great in speech therapy... we decided to continue with his sessions in addition to his school speech therapy, we also are going to have him evaluated for OT sessions this next Wensday. He is talking alot more than he was previously and we are hopeful that by the time he strats Kindergarten he will be at his age level if he continues to progress the way he has been.

He is also officially obsessed with SpongeBob and would watch it all day if you let him... so add that to the list of favs.. Cars, Alphabet, Bowling, SpongeBob....


Rory is now 6 months old, 2 weeks ago he started to scoot a tiny bit ( about 2 inches forward and would go backwards until he hit something). Well he his really getting around now... he does this really cute Army crawl (with no leg help) just pulling with his arm or sometimes arms... he's such a strong boy!
I don't have his 6 month stats yet since he hasn't gone to his 6 month check up yet, but he is a solid kid. not fat not skinny( like Griffin) just solid.
I started feeding him solids about a month ago once a day ...until a week ago when I got Mastis and decided he would have to help get rid of it naturally if possible... after about 4 days I started feeling better but wanted to make sure it was cleared before we went back to solids and it worked..started him back on the solids again 2 days ago .
I also started to offer him Cheerios's to help him work on his pincher grasp... he can do it some of the time but has yet to put any in his mouth... it's cute...
