Where did February go?

Where did February go? It went to swimming (look - no float belt!)...

to eating popcorn and watching videos on the iPad...

to doing art at home...

This month also found Stephen with a cold that led to bronchitis and an ear infection, and he spent a lot of time like this last week.
In other news, we started Stephen on a gluten-free diet at the beginning of the month, and we've seen a lot of improvement in his behavior since making that change. He is paying attention better, and attending to tasks for longer periods of time. His teacher at school has noticed a big improvement there as well, which was what we were hoping for, so I guess we're going to stick with it! Once we found a bread that Stephen liked, he hasn't had any problems with the switch, so it ended up being a lot easier than I thought it would be.

This past weekend, we went off to the home improvement store to build a dinosaur. Stephen was very excited about this project, and worked very hard to build his dinosaur.

Stephen was not excited about putting the stickers on, so his mom did that, but he did paint and color the base.

Later in the day, Stephen and his dad spent some quality time watching soccer together.The next day, Stephen started to feel a little under the weather with a cold, and spent Sunday and Monday resting up, but is back close to full strength now!
