Quick update

-Jer is having a blast in school. Today, however, he had a rough time for about an hour. I got a call from the school at 9am.  His teacher said he wasn't wanting to do any of his normal stuff and was trying to leave with his back pack (cute!) The teacher gave him 20 more minutes to calm down, which he did.  When he came home he had a nice nap on the couch.
-Yesterday I had to vacuum the living room really quick. I usually wait until Jer is at school to vacuum but HAD to right then (long story involving poop). He usually starts freaking out, crys and runs around, almost a full meltdown. Well yesterday all he did was stare at it, run around and then go try to seenit after I put it away! Like Hal said...that's progress!
-One more quick thing: services for Jer (Occupational and speech therapy) are going to start in a few weeks. We have an intial evaluation on Feb 28th. We are very happy this is all coming together. And it's all being paid for by this wonderful state we live in :-)

Till next time!

The first week of school went so well! With the exception of his impatience with how fast we get him on the bus, he is right on schedule with waking up easily at 6am, getting dressed and eating breakfast. Haven't yet incorporated teeth brushing yet because he's usually eating while walking out the door and it's only been 2 months since being okay with getting his teeth brushed. So maybe we'll brush teeth when he gets home!
When he's dropped off at about 12:30p, he's usually asleep and rarely stays asleep once I put him down in his bed unless he's completely out. But he's getting to that age where if he naps more than an hour it takes him longer in the evening to fall asleep which makes for a rough morning.
All in all he's doing quite well with all this change!!
The next juncture is additional services provided by Kaiser which will start in the next few weeks. Don't know how all that will work out but I'm hoping it will involve us meeting other families with our same situation. Been having lots of scheduling conflicts with the local meetup group that I hope will end soon. There are a few events coming up that I hope we can attend.
That's all for now.
