Matthias' big day...


So Matty started school today. He was screaming when I left him, and I'm not sure who had a harder time--him or me! It is so hard to see your child transition to the next stage and separate from you. I know this is going to be a great thing for Matthias (and for me!). I know he needs time away from me and time with typical peers. Since he has an older brother with a disability, it is important for him to have his own, structured, playful place where he can be himself. I know all that--but it's still so hard!

David meanwhile is feeling a bit better but not quite himself. He has been pulling to a stand all over the place! Last night he had a bit of a spill and bonked his head on the floor. OUCH! We felt so bad--but I guess that's all part of the learning and growing process. Lots of painful growing going on in the Leonard home right now! It's exciting, though!

My Matty is growing up. His little face is so full of anticipation. I can't wait to hear all he's learning in preschool.

It's such a crazy, fun, hard time. Those boys are just getting so big. Really! I wish time would slow down just a little!
