Every toy in that room was in the kitchen sink after the first hour so Brady moved on to his second favorite activity, bouncing on his butt. Let's hope he soon figures out those chairs are for sitting.I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around the picture below. We don't follow behind Brady anymore with our arms hovering out to catch him. Still, I am usually close by and have never watched him walk from this perspective. "Walk" isn't even the correct word - look at him strutting his way down the school hallway!If he could talk I'm pretty sure he would say What you looking at, Mom? Get outta the way!

This morning was Brady's pre-school orientation where we met his teacher, aids, school therapists and the other students. There will be 5 boys in the classroom and 4 adults (one teacher, two aids, and various therapists that will rotate in). We are seriously spoiled with that ratio and have been able to put aside many of our concerns. The teacher was very experienced and confident and had tomorrow's schedule written on the board. The classroom was adorable - I have never seen such a huge room full of miniature stuff. Everything was at toddler eye level, even the kitchen sink. Brady is one of the youngest and most delayed students so I know he is going to learn so much from the big boys. Tomorrow is the first official day of school so we'll see how things go.
Brady's favorite activity lately is helping us with dishes and laundry. In fact, I can get him to do almost anything if I call him my helper (oh, how I hope this stage lasts!). He was thrilled to discover that his classroom had several little kitchen and laundry centers.
