Today is Jameson’s third birthday, and I cannot believe how fast time passes! I also can’t believe that it hasn’t even been a year since his last surgery, it feels like forever ago. It is truly amazing the ability children have to bounce back and move on. I know that Jameson’s journey will shape the man he will become, but I love watching him embrace the fact that at heart he is simply a three year old little boy who loves life, his family, and his dog 🙂
This year will be a big year for Jameson. We have moved and settled into our new home in San Antonio; he has a lot of new people on his team now! And we are excited about what they have to offer him.
Today he started PreK-3! He goes from 7:30am-10:30am, and he will get speech therapy there twice a week (in addition to starting private speech therapy twice a week in the afternoons). He had a fantastic day! It was rough at first, he wasn’t too happy, but when we brought birthday cupcakes to his class at 10:00 his teachers said he warmed right up and was laughing and playing with the other boys and participated in the classroom activities!
Next week he will start occupational therapy once a week as well. Needless to say, he will be busy; we will be busy. It seems as though the first year of his life we were busy with doctor appointment after doctor appointment. Now, we are focusing our efforts on getting him up to speed with his peers as he transitions from toddler to boy. (Not that we weren’t before, he’s just at the point where we can do a little more without taking away ALL of his boyhood, we really believe the most important thing is for Jameson to be a child as much as possible, and too many appointments can take away from that). We also have an appointment with a developmental pediatrician next week, a sleep study on the 19th (FINALLY!!), and an appointment with audiology at the end of the month!
So, Happy Birthday little man!!! I can’t wait to see what you accomplish this year!
