Oliver's Day 5 went well. He started whimpering the moment he saw his school and clung to me when we got to his classroom. We did a puzzle together and then went to the sandbox to dig. When I said my goodbyes and left. He screamed and ran after me, but the teacher said to just leave. So I did. When we picked him up, he burst into tears and ran to me. His teacher said he did better today than last week - only cried about 65% of the day!!! Hopefully by Friday, he will be a bit more settled into the routine.
Waverly is loving school. She gets so excited when she sees her backpack and we head outside to meet the bus. She does a little jumpy dance when the bus pulls up and she is smiling the entire time. Her teacher sends a little note home every day and they have all been positive. I am so glad she loves going to school.
Matt has been home today. His new job has crazy hours, so he will be working most weekends and some night shift work. It is going to be quite an adjustment, but it certainly was nice having him around today. He was able to take part in our daily routine. We actually took Oliver out for lunch to our favorite Indian restaurant, before Waverly got home from school. It was such a nice treat.
In other news, we finally got Waverly's ABR results back. Her hearing loss has gotten worse and it is now a severe hearing loss (it used to be mild-moderate). I just made an appointment to take her into the audiologist to get her hearing aids adjusted. She is also continuing to have more difficulty at the table...although she held an ice cream cone nicely over the weekend. Dinner time has become more work for Matt & I. We may have to eat in shifts now. Oliver's foot is beginning to turn in. I was not expecting this for a few more years. His physical therapist suggested getting an orthotic insert to see if that helps, so we will make a trip up to our favorite shoe store sometime this week.
