I am not sure if I had a good day at school today. No note again! Oh well, I only have one day left there. I am not going tommorow or Thursday, so Friday will be my last day. Then I have the rest of the summer to do nothing but fun stuff, can't wait!

I got to see my cousins and Grandma Donna for a short time tonight. I get to spend all day tommorow with the cousins. Too bad Grandma can't join us, but I get to spend Friday night with her! We are gonna have so much fun hanging out at her house. Grandpop Bill's T.V. is big, I mean really, really big! I can't wait to see the Wiggles lifesize :)

Today we got to swing outside for a while. Mommy stood behind me and pushed that way. I kept turning around to laugh at her because that isn't how I usually get pushed. Grandpa Don needs to give her some lessons!

Quinn loves his new swing!

Me and Mommy have this new thing we do. When she carries me down to the playroom she stops at the light switch and tells me to turn on the light. I am getting pretty good at it, but this morning I flipped the light switch and nothing happened! I was so confused I just kept pointing at the light. Mommy had to explain the the bulb must have blown out and we had to wait until someone taller showed up to change it.

Good news, Grandpop Bill came over tonight for dinner and he is pretty darn tall! Not nearly as tall as my daddy, but still tall enough to change the light bulb. We also got to hang out and play a bunch which was really fun. Then he even helped Grandma Donna give me a bath before they left. It was a really fun night.

This week is my last week of summer school. I can't wait to get back to my regular school....it is so much better than this one!

Saturdays just aren't the same without Grandpa Don and Grandma Jan! I miss them so much, I hope they are having fun in Iceland. Eskimo kisses for both of you!

Mommy tried to make it a fun day and took me, Cooper, and Grandma Berta to Ikea. I was not in the mood to be there though :( Mommy tried to cheer me up with ice cream, but they only had cones and I just couldn't quite figure out how to eat it without a spoon. Oh well.

We came home and I went to bed early, probably a good thing since I am on a serious nap boycott lately.

I went back to school today and everyone was so excited to see me, since I had been out for two whole days. It is nice to be missed :) I had a good time at school. My teacher sang "Old MacDonald" during circle time and I really loved it. On the bus ride home my aide passed out books to everyone and let me play with the bag. Mommy told her afterwards how much I love books, so she said next time one of the older boys will read to me!

When I got up from my nap Daddy was home! He came home a little early cause he is going away again tommorow. We played and watched the Wiggles, then we did some snuggling on the sofa. I really love my daddy, I am gonna miss him sooooo much!

Well, we didn't build any bears today. My silly brother kept waking Mommy up, so she was too tired to drive to the mall. Instead I spent all day playing with my cousins at home. It was really fun and I got to spend more quality time with them than if we went out. I also got to spend lots of time with Great Grandma Berta, she is so funny!

Mommy tried to get me to nap, but I refused because I wanted to keep playing with my cousins. I really enjoyed watching Aaron play video games, it was almost as good as the Wiggles!

We had pizza again for dinner tonight, we seem to eat a lot more pizza when the cousins are around....not that I am complaining :)

Today I went to speech. Grandpa Don took me and we had a great time! Afterwards we went to Chuck E Cheese to play and eat lunch. Fun, fun, fun!

When we got home I was supposed to take a nap, but I decided to play with my cousins instead. I broke into Aarons fort, read some books, and watched some tv. It was a good afternoon capped off by some really great swinging outside and meatballs for dinner!

Tommorow we are all going to the mall to build bears. Sure sounds fun!

Cute as can be!

I had a nice couple of days with Daddy. He gave me lots of extra special attention to make up for all the time he was gone. He also got the DVR fixed so I can watch the Wiggles again, yay!

Today I went back to school. I guess I had a good day, but my teacher didn't send any notes home. I did spit up, Mommy knows that cause I was wearing a different shirt than the one she sent me in.

I got to see my cousins a little bit tonight and hopefully I can see more of them tommorrow. Grandpa Don is gonna take me to speech, that is always so much fun! It is my last speech session for the summer. School is almost over too! Can't wait to start sleeping in again.

Daddy is home! Finally!

I haven't seen him in so long that I acted all shy and cuddled up with Mommy when he came in. It has been such a long time that I just didn't know what to do. Then he picked me up and threw me up into the air a few times and I loosened up. I am so glad he is home and I get to spend all morning with him tommorow hopefully.

Maybe he can fix our DVR too, I haven't been able to watch my Wiggles in days and it is really making me mad!

Today was so much fun! I didn't go to school and I didn't have any therapy. Instead I got to hang out with my cousins and go to the mall. We went to Arundel Mills and first we went to the Bass Pro Shop and said hi to the fishes. I got so excited when I saw all the fish and started to sign "fish" like crazy. I could have stayed there watching them all day long. After that we went to Johnny Rockets for lunch. I really liked the music and french fries, but the grilled cheese kinda sucked. Mommy's is better. I had a really good time dancing to the music though, and watching my goofy cousin Sam. Then we went to Dave and Busters to play some games. That place rocks! I loved all the flashing lights and cool sound effects.

I had a great day, but tommorow it is back to school. Saturday is gonna be so good cause Daddy is finally coming home. I miss him soooooo much!

I had a much better day at school today. Mommy didn't come with me, but my teacher wrote her a note that said I didn't cry at all! She also told Mommy that I had a really good time during circle time, it is my favorite part of the day.... after snack of course!

When I got home I refused to take a nap even though I was tired. I played and watched some TV. Then my cousins came over! They didn't stay long but it was still good to see them. They brought me french fries, yummo!

Tommorow I don't have school cause I have speech. Grandpa Don is going to bring me, can't wait! On Thursday I am going to stay home too, cause I need to spend more time with my awesome cousins!!!

Mommy went to school with me this morning! That was kinda weird, but I rolled with it. I guess she wanted to check stuff out.

Well, I had a little fit when we got to my room. I couldn't tell you why. But I had PT this morning so we went outside and I walked in my walker. I was fine until we got back to the classroom and then I lost it again:( Good thing Mommy was there to give me hugs! I finally calmed down and had a wonderful rest of the day. I did an excellent job of sorting colors and had a great time playing with playdoh.

I wonder if Mommy is gonna come to school with me tommorrow too??

Mommy gave Grandma Berta the morning off so she had to get up early on a Sunday to watch us. Which meant me and Cooper played while Mommy snoozed on the playroom couch! Come on Mom, what reason could you possibly have to be tired?? I woke her up though, I wanted to watch the Wiggles so I grabbed the remote and started banging it on Mommy's head....she got the message:)

Grandpa Don came over tonight and I was so surprised and happy to see him! Turned out he didn't come over to play with me, he came over to hang our new swings! He is the best!!!! He hung up me and Cooper's new swings, then he came and got me and swung me...which was so much fun. Then to top it all off he took me for a walk around the neighborhood. Thank you so much Grandpa Don!
Today was so much fun! This morning Great Grandma Berta came over and watched me and Cooper so Mommy could sleep a little. I had so much fun playing with her! She cracks me up and I just love her accent, I could listen to her all day long :) We really bonded, especially when she fed me pizza for lunch!

When I got up from my nap Grandma Jan and Grandpa Don came over to pick me and Cooper up. They took us to a Native American Pow Wow! It was really cool there and we got to watch some American Indians dance and play the drums. Then we went to McDonalds for dinner and to the park to play....it was a great Saturday!!!

I had a rough day at school today. Actually, I had a rough day at school yesterday too, but nobody bothered to tell Mommy and I certainly can't! When Mommy got hom from taking Cooper to Gymboree this morning there was a message from the school nurse. It said that I was very upset and they couldn't calm me down. Mommy called the nurse right away, but I had just finally calmed down. The nurse told Mommy I did the same thing yesterday and that I must be sick because it wasn't usual for me. Of course I am not sick, I was totally fine yesterday when I got home. Mommy doesn't know what happened, and of course....I can't tell her :( The teacher didn't even send home a note or email Mommy today, what is up with that???

My day got much better on the bus ride home. One of the big boys on my bus got a Matchbox car at school and he decided he wanted to give it to me! He gave it to me when we got on the bus and it was so cool! I played with it the whole way home (even though it was still in the package), and was still awake and holding it when I got off the bus. It was the first time I have made it home awake since summer school started! It was so nice of that big boy to give me his toy, I brought it with me when I took my nap and Mommy found it under my pillow when I woke up. I know it is just a little car, but it means so much more to me cause a true friend gave it to me!!!

Mommy had a rough day too, so we got pizza for dinner! Yay!

I went back to school today and it was really fun. My new teacher never writes any notes to Mommy, so she has no idea what I do when I am gone. Sometimes I bring home an art project, today it was a picture of a school bus I painted yellow. It is all good, Mommy and me decided we can take it easy with summer school and that we won't bother asking for it again. Not enough time to train a new teacher!

When I got home I was sound asleep, but I made sure to wake up from my nap early so I could play with my cousins. They built all kinds of cool forts out of our toys and I had a great time playing with them. Then we had meatballs for dinner, yummy! Mommy gave me a bath and then I played for a little bit longer, I had to stay up to say hi to Uncle Ben. As soon as he left I crawled right up the stairs into my room....I was sooooo ready for bed!

The cousins are here! The cousins are here!

That is right my cousins from Washington state are finally here for their annual summer visit. When I woke up this morning and saw they were here I got so excited. I love, love, love playing with Aaron, Emilia, and Sam. Too bad I am such a busy boy this summer cause I will be at school most of the time they are visiting.

Today I didn't go to school, I went to speech instead. Grandpa Don came over and took me and we had a great time. Afterwards we went to Friendly's for lunch! I love spending special time with my Grandpa.

When we got home I was so excited to play with the kids that I didn't even take a nap right away. Instead we played and watched a cool claymation movie. It was a great day!!

BTW, I really miss you Daddy! Come home soon!!!

Today was my first day of summer school! I got to ride the bus and have a new bus aide, boy is she nice. When I got to school it was a totally different school, just like Mommy said it would be. I was a little nervous but then I saw that Mommy was there to meet me. We went to my new classroom, which is nowhere near as nice as my reguar classroom. It really wasn't set up for little kids like me, but I know my teacher is working on making it better....like getting me a chair that lets me put my feet on the ground. One good thing about this school is they have breakfast! Every kid gets juice, milk, graham crackers, and cereal, plus a spork to eat it with. I really enjoyed my crackers and the cereal was Cinnamon Toast Crunch...yummy!

We had some free play time and then circle time. I really liked circle time cause my new teacher, Ms. Erin, uses lots of music. You know me and dancing! By the time circle time was over Mommy had secured me an individual aide, so she decided to go home. After she left we read books and played on the playground. It was really fun and I didn't cry or get upset at all. It was just a really crazy day so I was cranky when I got up from my nap. Oh yeah, I fell asleep right away when I got on the bus to come home.....what a day!
