The hubs and I just dropped off super dude at his first day of preschool! We can't believe that the little boy who had a 30% chance to live is now partying in school with other kids. If we didn't tell you what he's been through you'd never know. He washed his hands, sat down at the table and ate a snack with all the other kids. It was so awesome!!!!!

"Mommy, I think these are a little too big for me..."
We got really lucky and a spot opened up in the preschool we
Just prior to moving, we went out on one last boat trip with our friends, the Cieszkos. The little boys, big boys and ladies had a great time!
My parents (gigi and granddad) got the dude a wagon for his birthday. Even though his birthday is a month away, they gave it to him early so we could enjoy this beautiful weather. Nana (hubby's mom) got the dude a tricycle, but he needs to grow another 1/4 inch before he can fully use it, which won't be long at the rate he's going! [he'll be 2 in October, but is in 3T shirts for the length; 2Ts are belly shirts!]
I can't remember if I posted about Super Dude's speech diagnosis of Speech Apraxia, but we were pretty devastated. The SLP suggested that we bring him to therapy once a week, but with school starting soon, we've put therapy on hold. We're interested in seeing the progress he makes in school first, before we add something that may be unnecessary. We've implemented the SLP's home therapy suggestions and the dude's speech is slowly improving. His eating has turned a corner and he's been doing really well (but, don't tell him!).
I included this last picture because it just cracks me up! Super Dude in his new cowboy boot slippers.
