There's a mom in our group who always brings her camera and takes pics of the kids. She just sent me all the pics she got of my boys! They definitely have a lot of fun, it's a 2 hour class. They spend an hour in the classroom and then an hour in the gym. We join them for the last 15 minutes of gym time.

My little boy is 2! This year seemed to go by so fast, seems like he just turned 1! Here he is, getting ready for his bath.
Books! He likes that the one has a siren button, but he won't look at the actual book since the button is so fun. The other one has flip-out extended pages that make him mad, so to save the book from his tantrums I put it away for now! He just figured out how to turn each page in a regular book, so it was frustrating him to see one that didn't work that way. His OT people are going to re-evaluate him very soon, so it'll be interesting how that turns out. They agreed that he's still delayed in that area, but his fine motor has definitely improved since this summer. His problem-solving skills seem to be more behind though, he tends to get frustrated very easily and takes it out on whatever he's frustrated with. I need to catch up on my development charts, it's been a while since I've done that!
Little People Construction set. It's like a little ramp, a very simple set with a couple options for where the truck should go. The nice part is, it's easy for them to set up themselves and the 2 platforms become a storage/carrying case for the toy. So this will be a good toy for long clinic visits. :)
Other toys he got were a cash register, which is also a big hit. I wasn't sure if they'd like it or not, but I'm glad I got it! Also a little Rex flashlight. It's the shape of Rex and you squeeze his tail and his mouth opens and has a little flashlight in it. They quickly figured out that this toy is best in the dark, they keep bringing it to the dark bedroom or my closet to play with it.
It's nice having new toys in the house, they've both been very entertained. :)
