Coop's first day!

Cooper's first day in the special needs preschool was yesterday!  He had a wonderful day and even pee'd on the potty for the first time!  We haven't started potty training in our home because it's normal for kids with hypotonia to not potty train until they're 4 or 5 because they just don't have the same sensation as kids with normal tone.  Add in a huge language barrier called Apraxia and potty training just hasn't reached my radar in importance but now that he's shown an interest (nothing like peer pressure to get things moving!) we'll start working on things at home, too. 

He's going to go to school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for 4 hours a day.  I take him to school around 7:30 which means that I have to wake him up around 6:45 to get ready and let me tell you that I haven't set an alarm clock in 3 years and I forgot how much I hate that damn thing, lol.  I also learned that I hate a carpool lane so I'm going to be walking/strolling him to school unless it's snowing or raining! 

Cooper's first day of school pic!  He was so excited and didn't even cry when I dropped him off!  He gave me two sweet kisses and ran off to play!


  1. I love, love, love that shirt. That is a familiar backpack, too.

  2. Aw, so glad he had a great first day. Love his picture here!
