Bad Week, Better Week

Well, last week was pretty darn terrible. Grant was ill and extremely out of sorts. So much so that I took him to the ER out of desperation one night. All that got us was sleep deprivation and aggravation. Grant and I suffered through a number of Dr. visits, and trips to the hospital for tests. In the end, we finally determined that there was nothing majorly wrong with his digestive track, but we still didn't get what we needed, which was a better GERD medication that didn't make him constipated.

This week, however, we finally got it! He is doing much better this week. He is back to his chipper self, cooing and babbling a lot. He's also started figuring out that he has hands and that hands are great for grabbing things. It's fun to watch him try to figure out how to extend his arm and try to grab's a work in progress!

Montessori Milestones

Today was Liam's first day of Montessori school. Liam really seems to love it! His teachers seem to be very patient and have the skills necessary to deal with his willful personality. Apparently, he participates just great during circle time at the Montessori school - something he has yet to master at his private school. Even though I had initially thought of not taking him at the Montessori school because it was an inconvenience for me, I am really glad that I stuck with it.

I also made this Treasury on Etsy to celebrate the occasion: Back to School Montessori Style
