I am way behind on posting Elijah photos. I figured I better start posting more before we are preoccupied with the new baby.
We have an IEP meeting for Elijah on Monday. Who knows if I'll be able to attend or what our status will be then, but it's something we have to do at some point. I am curious to hear what his teachers will say about how he has done at preschool so far this year and what their goals are for him next year.
I haven't wanted to mention much about this until we have more details (and get professional opinions), but I have been kind of concerned about some of Elijah's very repetitive behaviors. I am eager to hear what the people at ECSE have to say about some of the things we notice here at home. He is SO INCREDIBLY REPETITIVE about certain things, and I want to know if it is something we need to look into further or if it is just typical kid stuff. More to come on that.
A cute Elijah thing that I have made note of is how descriptive he is when he refers to an object or a place. He doesn't ride the bus, he rides the "yellow bus with two doors." He doesn't go to the park, he goes to the "one green park" or the "one blue park." He doesn't ride in our cars, he rides in the "big red car" or the "little red car." He is more observant than I am!
Preschool days are still really trying for our family. Being there must be extremely overly stimulating for him still because he is usually pretty crazy on the days he is there. He really loves it, though, so we are happy we decided to start sending him to school. He asks me almost every night, "Go fee-gool 'morrow?"
Still no sign of baby! The frequency of my contractions continues to increase, though, so it could be any time. My guess is still the 25th, which is next Tuesday. We'll see if I'm right very soon!
