And from the Andy front:
Andy's class had their spring party on Wednesday. His teacher is very very pleased with him- Andy loves school, and is adapting well. He's ahead taller than everyone else, even though he's one of the youngest in there. He sits to eat his snack and everything. It was fun to watch him go with the flow, follow instructions, and look at books with his friends. It's a little strange, too, since Joey didn't do these things at this age; he didn't talk with other children, tell me or show me things, insist on things. On the other hand, its also fun to see how they are/were the same- still wanting to hug on Mom because she came to school, still wanting to be the one who holds the book and trn the pages when the teacher is reading. She also mentioned another similarity- Andy is considerate of his classmates' feelings. He does his best to help them, share with them, and does his share in cleaning up.
The class is a little more cliquish than I was expecting of 3-year-olds; the boys tend to leave Andy alone and bunch together without him. He's getting along fine with the girls, though.
I'm going to be in trouble when he becomes a teenager.
