looks like we have a future reader.... or shopper.
Benji is having a ball reading sales papers and telling me what he wants to buy. It beats being outside and playing in the rain.
Just a heads up that starting Monday I will be posting food and behavior diary. I'm gonna try to keep it going for at least 2 weeks to see if we can notice a pattern of behavior based on what he is eating.
So... hopefully we can get that figured out and go from there. I will also start keeping better track of words with him too and all that jazz...

I'm off...

Splish Splash

splish splash! Benji had alot of fun today. He finally got in the pool and discovered it is fun. Benji splashed and kicked and relaxed and had lots of fun playing toss with Micah. After about an hour he had enough though and was ready to just go play in the yard.

Rompin' Stompin' Reading Roundup

So... today was a busy day. This morning we went to the library and signed everybody up for the summer reading program.
Benji got to pick out 5 books for us to read to him. He really enjoyed the kids area alot. There was a train table similar to his wooden Thomas trains and then there were computers.

Both Micah and Benji were very interested in the computers that were there. Benji was almost too excited...... LOL Micah played the games a little bit, Benji just wanted to hit on the keyboard.

So... we do plan on visiting the library at least weekly. The boys were also excited that they got library cards with their names on them. =]

Boredom strikes....

I'm so bored..... sitting in the parking lot waiting on the kiddos. Benji's evaluation went well... He is 28 months and his speech is 14-16 months. They are recommending 2-3 days of speech therapy a week for an hour at a time.
And they speech pathologist also suggested based on the behaviors he presented that he has a sensory integration thing going on and recommends Occupational Therapy eval. I'm gonna be eval'ed out by August... At least then I will get a little break thanks to school starting.
So on to enjoyment.... once I pick up the kiddos I get an extra one and she will go home around 2 or 3. Then tonight is softball at 6.

ending with a cute pic of my cutie.... taken when we went to Michael's Saturday. It's Benji.
