First day of preschool
Elijah had a great first day of preschool! His teacher said he did great, with the exception of a few seconds between each transition time. Any time they switched activities, Elijah would start crying for "Dad." (Yes, it breaks my heart a little bit that he wasn't calling for me.)
I cried for the first 30 minutes he was at school, but eventually found peace about it. I'm glad to have Day 1 behind us and I'm sooo very glad that he enjoyed the majority of his day.
The cute Elmo backpack we got for him is too small to fit his folder in, so we will have to find another one. And, can you see his medical ID bracelet? Having this on while he was away comforted me somehow.
Our little boy came home exhausted. We are hoping for a good, restorative night of sleep for him tonight. He needs it!
Can you hear my big sigh of relief about having this day behind us? I've literally been dreading it for months. It's good to have lived through it and to know that Elijah is going to be just fine. No, more than just fine. School is going to be great for him!
Some new favorite Elijah pronunciations:
ask = "axe"
cactus = "tackus"
Tomorrow morning is my big doctor's visit! I have absolutely zero idea what she is going to tell me. My contractions have been extremely unpredictable (really good days and some bad days, too) for the past couple of weeks, and I don't know if that is good or bad. We will see!
