I know this post is a little late in being written but I wanted to write it anyways. Friday, June 12th was Trotwood's last day in kindergarten. The night before his last day, he looked at me with a very sad face and his eyes full of tears and he said, "I don't want to leave kindergarten." I gathered him up in my arms and held my sweet boy on my lap and asked him what he was feeling. He said he felt sad because he didn't want to leave his teacher Mrs. Wiles. I am sure he was experiencing many other feelings and worries as well, but as a parent, I could see how much he loved his kindergarten teacher. And I was so grateful that he had a teacher whom he loved and who loved him back. Here's some photos of Trotwood on his first (left and top) and last (right and bottom) days of kindergarten. I can't believe how much he has grown!

Look who sat up for 20 seconds all by herself this morning!
For awhile there, we were getting really frustrated trying to feed her by mouth and she wouldn't take hardly anything. But, in the last week, she's started to take more from a bottle again so that's progress. Something we have learned about her is that when it comes to food and eating, she really wants to be in control. She can eat - she doesn't choke or gag or anything - she just doesn't want to eat mainly because I don't think she is ever hungry because of the feeding schedule she is on. So, we'll keep working with her on the eating.
I'm getting adjusted to my new job and so far, I feel like things are going well! My favorite part (besides the great people I work with) is being able to see this by my feet occasionally during the day:
Trotwood will be out of school in a few weeks - we meant to find a fun summer camp for him to attend but we never decided on anything. I'm sure we can find some way to entertain him this summer. That's all for now!
