Hughes at 3 1/2

Hughes loves to dress-up in costumes.  He is currently wearing a lion costume (thanks Lisa!) crawling around on the floor.  He loves it when I refer to him as a lion.  He has several other costumes, again thanks to Lisa, that his friends enjoy, too!  He loves his trains and it's a constant battle to keep the track together (thanks to Banks the Destroyer).  

He is a very good sharer and is very sensitive.  If he does anything remotely wrong all I have to do is give him "the look" and he melts.  He plays well with other children and is always up for a bike ride.  We've cut out his nap and now when Banks naps, he has "quiet time" which includes anything from playing games, watching a little tv, etc.  He then collapses at 7:30.

His speech is coming along.  He's currently going two mornings/week which seems to be working out for us.  He loves his speech therapist and happily goes with her every time.  His vocabulary is expanding everyday and it is such a relief to be able to understand at least 80% of what he's telling us.  Outsiders still don't get it, but we do!

He's in school two mornings a week and we always get great reports.  It makes me proud to be his mama.  He's such a loving boy!
