Colt's playroom! Thanks, Ryan!
This week, Colt started a new "school." It is really a Mother's Day Out program at a church in East Ridge. It is Tuesday and Thursday from 9 - 1 and it is Colt's first time away from anyone in our family, really. I mean, we leave him in the nursery at church, but we're in the building somewhere. I was so very anxious that I wasn't sleeping and I cried like a baby when I left him on Tuesday. I actually know the woman who coordinates the whole thing. We grew up together and went to school together, so that made me feel more comfortable about leaving him. Then when I got there, I knew his teacher too! I grew up and went to school with her too! That helped a lot. So anyway... I have a story. After the long day, I couldn't wait to "talk" to him about it! I asked him what he did at school and he said "eee eat" over and over and over. Finally, I saw on the MDO facebook page that they had talked about Adam and Eve. I asked him if he learned about Adam and Eve and he said "eee eat!" I finally got it! He was saying "Eve eat!" I asked him about that and he did the sign for "apple!" We asked him if Eve ate the apple and he nodded. It was so cute! He went through all these signs and sounds and made us understand what he was saying. That Eve ate the apple and they got in trouble! Ryan and I just stood there in disbelief. We were so proud!! :)
This morning when I dropped him off, Megan said "Colt stole the show on Tuesday! We love him!" Then when I saw his teacher, Rebecca, she said "He is the sweetest, most loving little kid I have ever met!" I am seriously beaming. :)
So, there we are. Life is good. My cup runneth over.
These smiles. Oh my.
