Little Big Things

I'm exhausted and will probably go to bed in about 5 minutes. :) But I just quickly wanted to update on the small yet amazing things Dean has done in just a day!

-started stacking blocks
 Caught in the act! lol

-cruised the length of the couch
-put balls in a toy where the opening was just larger than the size of the ball (takes coordination!)
-he crawled through the play tunnel, finally!
Yay for more progress! Dean is changing every day. :)

Also, I'm all about "little" things that make my life just a little bit easier each day. I made a chart for Cole to get ready for school. He runs over to check the chart and see what he needs to do before we leave the house. I don't have to nag him endlessly while I'm trying to get myself and Dean ready, too. Hoping his motivation to adhere to the chart continues!

All I did was take a piece of cardboard and wrap it with gift wrap. Then I wrote out the steps on index cards with pictures and taped them to the board. Wrote out numbers and a title, done! Super easy. It's times like this that I'm thankful for my Pre-K teacher brain. :)

Wow, Dean really does do something new every day, doesn't he? Way to go, Dean!

And I love that little chart you made Cole. How creative!
