And Ryan too!



Ryan and I are taking swimming lessons together and he's having a blast! Puts his face in the water himself and splashes like crazy. He also got his very first ear infection, and he made it a double! He's recovering from it, let's hope the sleeping habits will improve. Joe and I are walking zombies from being up with him all night!

Babies are great, right?

Kindergarten here he comes!



So Owen and I just went to visit his new school for next fall. I can't believe they make you register so early! He loved his classroom, he's excited to ride the bus and eat lunch at school! He's growing up so fast. What a blessing he is.

Dermot's school



Dermot's third day of school is tomorrow. He goes to a new transition class every Friday morning until the end of the school year. I think when they say transition, it's a transition for the parents. It was very strange to drop him off for the first time and just leave. I was worried about if he started to cry, or get upset. Would the teachers know how to calm him down? Would they hold him like I do? It's one of those moments when I have to Let go and Let God...

He's doing really well. There's at least one adult per child, he gets a morning stretch, a workout, book time and a song of the day. What more could you ask for?

Breathe in Breathe out...



Dermot started his hyperbaric oxygen therapy this past Monday. He'll go Monday thru Friday for the next eight weeks. We're not hoping for a miracle, but we are wishing for more alertness and better cognitive ability. We'll see.

I'll keep you posted on his progress.
