I am happy to have gotten back into somewhat of a routine since school has started.
The kids had a great time and enjoyed going on the rides together. Notice Leo's shoes...(I don't know what he was thinking...don't ask me!). I didn't realize he had two different crocs on until we got out of the car at the amusement park...oh well...!
Adventure Land has a small water park connected to it. So we spent some time there. As you can see I forgot Frankie's bathing suit, so he borrowed Clara's Hello Kitty undies... I know I am "mom of the year"!
Don't let this picture fool you! He is NOT as sweet and innocent as this picture portrays him to be! Frankie has definitely hit the "troublesome 3's"! He continually cracks me up with the things that he says and does!
Avery's first day of school. He thinks he is such a "cool cat" . I don't know what happened to him over the summer, but he sure has a lot of confidence these days...
Avery lost his second top front tooth right before he started school. He was pretty proud of himself...Loose teeth for this kid can really cause some drama in our household! You would think his life was coming to an end when it comes to getting these things out of his mouth!
These two have been getting along really well for the most part. They seem to be playing together so much better than they used to!
I don't know if you remember me mentioning how much Avery loves the police, military, army, etc... The other day our neighbor offered to bring his cop car by so the boys could check it out...You can see how excited they were!
Avery and Russ (our neighbor).
We went to the preschools open house the other night. I did not know what to expect with Frankie! Oh boy can I tell you that he felt right at home! He was so excited and pumped up that the two teachers could barely get his attention to show him around the room. I am afraid that they will have their hands full with him. Frankie will be going two days a week.
Avery is really enjoying school. He loves to learn and has enjoyed making new friends. We have gotten into a good routine that after school we will go through his back pack and he will work on his papers and read! Frankie has enjoyed this time as he gets a story read to him.
Mr Vinners loves to hang out in the middle of all of the chaos! He has been doing great! Vinny recently had a sedated ABR (hearing test) done. He has shown improvement in all areas of hearing. However, he is still classified as mild to moderate hearing loss.
Over the summer, he has really begun to blossom! He has been more active and aware of his environment. He loves to reach out, grab, and explore everything. Most things end up in his mouth. Vin has been eating pretty good. We manage about 2 oral feeds a day. He has figured out to get his pacifier in and out of his mouth by himself and he has finally found his feet.
Vinny surprised his PT and myself the other day by sitting up for approx 5-7 min. several different times during his therapy. I think something is starting to click for him. He is getting so much better with his sitting. I definitely am not ready to leave him alone on the floor to play.
Vinners giggles and laughs all the time! I am so glad that he is such a happy little boy!
Well there you have our summer in a nutshell. I hope to start posting a little more now that we have gotten back into a routine.
