Jack started his new Daycare, Childgarden Child Development Center and we love it. He seems to be stimulated and happy there. Their website is www.childgardencdc.org if you are interested. We really love it. Here is a blurp about them:
We have been so pleased with Jack's teachers, LaCreda and Charlene. Both have been with Childgarden for over 8 years and Jack seems to really enjoy them.
He also has 2 new therapists; Teddie is his Occupational Therapist and Katie is his physical therapist. Teddi and Katie are on staff at Childgarden. Therefore, they can be sure that the teachers are implementing therapy in a variety of settings throughout the day.
Jack gets therapy every week. Both Teddie and Katie are inlove with him..he is such a flirt (just like dad) :)
A Note from Katie:
Michael has class 4 nights per week and all day on Saturdays right now, so Jack and I are getting a lot of alone time, which is just fine. I usually pick him up from day care around 4:30 and we head home. I get dinner ready for Michael and then feed Jack, a little play time with Jack, bath time with Jack, storytime and then bed time by 7:30. Michael usually gets home around 8:30, so we have a little time in the evenings together. I try to wake Jack up around 9:00 pm for one more feeding, which he usually sleeps right through. He is in his crib now for the most part. I think he is sleeping better and we are too, but it is really hard for me. I love waking up and seeing him right beside us in his bassinet, but he was outgrowing it...so it was time to move on.
Jack just got 4 vaccines last week and I got my H1N1 vaccine today! I was so happy to finally get it. Michael will get his next week. Jack can't get vaccinated for seasonal or H1N1 flu until he is 6 months old...in December.
For Halloween, we stayed at home and just took it easy. Life is so packed for us right now that we have to take moments on the weekends to just chill as a family.The day before Halloween, Jack's little classroom had a Halloween Party and I went to it. THey combined the toddlers with the babies in the indoor play room. Here are some pics from it:
please note: Jack spit up all over his pumpkin outfit, which is why he is wearing regular clothes :(
Here is what he was wearing:
We are getting our first family portraits taken on November 15th and I can't wait! I am sure it will be fun. I hope we can little Jack to smile for the camera.
Here are some recent pics of our little bit:
Jack will have surgery again on December 18th for the hernia he has developed since his last surgery. It should be an outpatient surgery and the surgeon doesn't expect any complications. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers that day and Michael and me too...the anesthesia part is always very hard.
We are heading to Denver, CO again this year for Thanksgiving and can't wait to be with family. Then, my parents are coming up in December for a little Christmas visit and we are hoping to make it out to Bellingham and Seattle in the spring. We want everyone to see our little Jack! He truly is a blessing.
I'll continue to keep you posted as life continues to move along. Thanks for listening!!
