Starting School & Turning Three!!

Brennan turned 3 almost two months ago. We had my sister and her family over for pancakes to celebrate.



And the day after he turned 3, he had his first day of preschool. He walked happily into school, saying "hello" to everyone he saw.



The a few weeks later, when my Mom got home from her time in Florida, we had another celebration for Brennan's birthday with the most adorable sailboat cake that my Mom and Tanner made.



The hardest part about Brennan turning 3 was saying goodbye to his wonderful therapists. They have all been such a huge source of help and encouragement over the past 3 years. Luckily, his preschool teachers and aide are also wonderful. He is always excited to go to school and asks for his backpack and walker as soon as his brothers and sisters start getting ready for school. He seems to be adding new words to his vocabulary almost daily. He has even started learning the names of his classmates and greets them by name as we walk into and out of the school. He is also taking steps independently, increasing the number of steps he can take little by little. It is exciting to see the progress he's making and also to see how proud he is of himself!

I cannot believe how much he has grown and how quickly he is changing. I would love to come with you for school drop-off someday!

He is amazing! I love it! 3 comes really quick and I too will have a hard time saying goodbye to our therapists.
