This is what a 3 year old with a 103 degree fever, ear infection, and possible RSV looks like...
He looks so big, though, doesn't he? Just lately, Stephen has started to climb backwards down the entire flight of stairs (FINALLY), recognize and identify colors (!!!), and (drum roll please) .............. USE THE POTTY AT SCHOOL!!!!!!
Yes, on Thursday at preschool, Stephen used the potty once, and again did it at Children's Day Out on Friday. And at CDO, he was stymied by the fact that the regular toilet was clogged, and all of the kids were using a potty seat, which Stephen has not used since last summer. I think we are on a roll with this, now! And on Thursday morning, he also did the sign for potty when he had to go!
The other really cool thing that Stephen has begun to do over the past week or so is recognize when he is tired, and instead of fighting us, he just goes to bed! Tonight, when he finished his book with Daddy, he got up from the chair they were sharing, turned off the light, and then climbed in to bed. Usually, we have a little bit of silliness on the boy's part before he decides to give it up and go to sleep, but lately, he's been much better about realizing that going to sleep will help him to not feel so tired. He's just growing so much!
