Big G vs Wild...When Buses Get Stuck
Today was Griffin's IEP meeting! Thankfully, I was able to get an extra spot at church for Mother's Day Out for Little G to attend today so that I could go to this meeting in peace! Worked out perfectly. I am very impressed with Griffin's schooling and everyone involved in his therapies at his school. His teacher is awesome and I'm just so excited to get him started! Well, he's super excited, I'm a bit hesitant because he's still so new to me and doesn't feel old enough to start school. So we are going to wait until his bus transportation gets worked out before he starts. That could take up to 10 days, so I bought us a little more time. <smile> It could actually stretch out until after the Christmas break and, to be honest, that's when I had initially thought he would be starting school anyway. I'm very satisfied with the goals they have set for him and I can already tell that he's going to love every minute, accept for the sitting still part.
Yesterday, I told Chris that I felt that Griffin was about to have a breakthrough. I can see that he has stepped it up a notch with songs and finger-play and it's almost like he's on the verge of doing something more. And he did! Last night, as he was sitting on my lap, he signed "Itsy Bitsy Spider". So we did it again and again and again. He always wants my hands on his arms, providing no help at all, but just touching him, and he will do the motions...or he wants to help me do the motions. All of a sudden, as I was doing the motions, he started doing them along with me with no support! We did the entire song and it was absolutely marvelous! One of our happiest moments, I would say. I could see the joy on his own face and that made my heart melt. However, he only did that one time. I'm hoping that he has realized that he can do these songs all by himself as I sing them, without my support. So proud of him and he was very proud of himself!
Just a snippet of our past 2 days. More later!
Love and Hugs!
Oh! Thank you, Kelly, for the snow pictures!
