Ethan turned 3 on Sunday! Here he is playing with one of his favorite gifts. He's so obsessed with this tent that we decided to keep it out of his view this morning in order to make sure he would eat his breakfast and be willing to leave the apartment. He noticed it was gone and immediately started looking around while signing "tent". Did we actually think he would forget about it simply because it wasn't visible?
Here's Ethan wearing his backpack and name-tag this morning on his first day of preschool. He is attending St. Rita School for the Deaf. We're sending him there this week as a "visitor", though we hope to see that status change after the IEP meeting to become "student". The big meeting is this Friday at 10 a.m. I'm nervous about it but excited just the same. We've been gearing up for this stuff for so long and now that it's all happening it just feels surreal. Wish us luck on Friday. I'll post as soon as we know anything.
