This little man recently turned 4. It's hard to believe. He really enjoyed his birthday, and this year he understood how these things go. He was excited!
He enjoyed a pool party with his cousins:
And Nana made these awesome minion cupcakes, which he loved:
He's been home 1 1/2 years now. He has adjusted so well! His speech is improving all the time. He has therapy only once a week during the summer, but we are still seeing progress. He can now say lots of single words, although combining words is still difficult.
He had his first round of swimming lessons in June. It was a little surreal watching him. If you have forgotten, he was terrified of baths and standing water when he first came home. He has come so far! He now loves baths, and he loves being in water (although, he wasn't too thrilled with the swimming lessons themselves). He decided to potty train back in March, and he has done fabulously with that. He basically never has accidents, practically from the beginning. My happy littlest son is doing just fine.
