My Breakfast Date

Sorry no pictures today! Colin had broken out in HORRIBLE hives yesterday and when we took him to school this morning they kind of freaked out- a lot. So, I went and picked him up to take him to the doctor to reassure them. Since we had about an hour to spare, Colin and I went to Panera to have breakfast together. I picked a table for two over by the window and let him have his own chair- no highchair or booster seat. He did awesome! He ate his entire fruit cup and even cleaned up after himself. The conversation was great! It was really, really sweet and I decided that we needed to start doing it more often. Thank you, Colin, for such a great date!

Little MacGyver

Yep, that's the front door. Mr. Colin has learned that by dumping a toy box and flipping it upside-down, it gives him just the boast that he needs to reach the dead-bolt and then the door knob! Perfect. Do they make child-proof dead-bolts?

Thank Goodness for Velcro!

For the very first time, Colin put on both of his shoes by himself! They may have been on the wrong feet but they were all the way on. He's got the right idea. As you can tell, we were very excited:

On a side note, here is a glimpse of some of the work that Colin has done at school:

Big Boy School

This week was Colin's first week at Little Red School House! He has had a babysitter in the neighborhood for the past year but we thought it was time to get him into a more structured, educational-based environment. The transition has gone well so far! He's even napping on a mat rather than in a crib, which I thought would be the biggest problem. Everyday, he brings home colorful artwork and a pristine review - well, all except for the pushing. Hopefully that will end soon! But so far, so good. We are SO very happy that we made the transition to Little Red. Oh, did I mention that he already knows his 1-2-3's? Yay!
