A nice sight, the boys playing together!
She was crying, so Gabriel was trying to comfort her
I've been feeling great, as recovery goes. I'm back to wearing my old jeans. I dropped 21 pounds in the first couple weeks, and I've stayed there since, but my pants keep getting looser, so I guess that's good! This is the first time I've been back in my jeans in the first month. I think we've just been so busy with appointments and dealing with the kids. By the time Gabriel was a month old, we were already living at the hospital, which isn't really an active lifestyle! I've been enjoying the school year so far, mostly for the mom groups that have started back up again. It's been nice to get out and talk to people I know. Mostly, I'm completely exhausted. She's a fairly good sleeper, but her fussiness during the day is very wearing. I've had a headache for about a week and I'm not really getting anything done. Getting out of the house a few days per week has been refreshing. I'm glad to be able to do that!
Dawson is doing great with his sticker chart. He needs 5 more to earn the Children's Museum, and he can potentially earn 3 per day, so he is close! He's been doing pretty good in school. They are seeing some behaviors, but not too bad. He's been doing great with his homework. He brings some home twice a week and they work on it during his Autism therapy after school. His handwriting is so much better this year, and he's been blowing through those worksheets. So far they haven't sent home anything he doesn't already know.
Gabriel has been saying so many things. His vocabulary is expanding daily and he seems so big! I just switched out his clothes, so he's in 3T shirts now. His 2T pants aren't going to last much longer either. He loves going to ECFE class and he's been doing great at my moms groups. Last year he wasn't a big fan of the childcare rooms, but this year he runs right in there to play. He's been playing with animals and trains mostly. He still loves his rocking horse! He plays on it everyday.
