The days are still long, but they are numbered. Tyler returns to daycare on August 3rd, and I return to work–at my new job! A friend encouraged me to apply at Niwot High School, and as it turns out, I got the job. I will still be teaching special ed to high school students with cognitive needs, but at a school much closer to my house. As it’s still summer, I haven’t thought too much about the transition other than needing to get my phone to understand “Niwot.” Right now when I voice text I’m given “night what,” “not hat,” “high hot,” and other nonsensical interpretations. Pull it together, Siri. N-i-w-o-t.
We have had an amazing summer which I will blog about more (I hope).
Oh my goodness. This kid takes fun to a new level.
Tyler took off crawling in June and hasn’t looked back. He pulls himself up on furniture (or our legs) and loves to stand. I think we’re a ways off from walking, but you never know. He sleeps [stays in his crib because we don’t go in there] all night long and sometimes naps. He is a big fan of food pouches and nibbles any table food he can get, but he’s still not eating much and he’s still a tiny dude.
The summer outfit he’s wearing is a hand-me-down and my current favorite of his wardrobe. His “blue” eyes are remarkably olive green when he wears it. Even though he has those Holle eyes we think he really looks like me these days. Yes, he still fits in the basket…and at the rate he’s (not) growing we will probably take his senior pictures in it.
