Andy has been doing really well at school. As he gets more exposure to other children, he is picking up on social cues, roles and expectations. We went for a bike ride over the weekend, and he shared his bike with two other kids, quite happily. His teacher said he is doing a lot better in class, accepting the other children and playing with them, and sharing the toys. His speech is improving- lots more sentences. Even today, when he was being persnickety (Grandma was sitting the wrong was in the car, any static-y noise brought on complaints, couldn't sit to eat), we could understand him most of the time, he was playing with other children he met, and he was hugging on his brother.
Meanwhile, Joey is also coming right along. We had plenty of words after school today, He wanted to know where Miss Jill (one of our ABA therapists) was, and only took a few minutes to accept that she wasn't coming today (ABA is Thursdays). He actually tried some of the rhythm exercises for Mr. Shelby at drum lesson. He ate his dinner, cleared his place, and asked for dessert without prompting. Yes, coming right along.
They're getting to be big, big, grown-up boys. Amazing. So here's some good-luck doing-well dust to scatter around to the rest of you, to celebrate our great week- may you have great weeks, too.
