So school is going very well for Connor. Here is a report from his teacher today:
"When we first got to the classroom he was sitting on the floor with minimal support and then he drank some. Then in the motor room today we had him on a ½ round foam block (on his stomach) and he kept picking up his head to look at the other kids. For ot and speech connor was in his stander and finger painted and listened to a story and we worked on pointing! Then we started a few pages from our "fall counting books" all before lunch and naps!
But it is all going so well..everyday he seems to keep his head up a little longer or seem a bit stronger when he sits..I hope that all of this leads to great progress for Connor. The other students are interacting with him..he is the first student that gets hugs during our "4 hugs a day" song. Even when he was crying another student went to hold his hand!"
motor room - a special room where all the equipment they use for physical therapy lives.
ot - occupational therapy - fine motor skills (finger work, etc)
speech - speech therapy
Needless to say, we are very proud parents. :)

I started school yesterday! It was really cool - first I had to get in my new stroller (the stupidly expensive one that my parents found for WAY less on eBay...) and they had to figure out how to close all the straps. That took a few minutes. Then I had to wait - the bus was late! But Mommy, Daddy, Christy (my nanny) and Granny Kate waited with me. You should have seen my face when the bus lift started to rise to bring me up! It was so cool! My teacher sent home a note to Mommy and Daddy that I had a good day, even though I got tired a little earlier than nap time. Then again, if you had all those changes, you'd want a nap, too. I came home and played and worked with Christy until she had to go, then I took a catnap with Granny Kate until Mommy and Daddy got home. It was a great first day of school!
And on top of all that, I only have three and a half more weeks before I become a big brother! I don't know how I'm going to handle all this change... I promise to keep you updated!
