We really had a fantastic weekend together this weekend and it was really extra nice because it was 11-11-11 AND I had off from school on Thursday and Friday. There are so many little things to update you on and I am excited to share because there was a whole lot of cuteness going on...
Saturday we had Colin's Special Olympics of NJ Young Athlete program. When we got there, Colin got into the gym and said "oooohhhh woooowwww"! The young volunteers were still setting up, so we sat in the stands and waited and Colin just kept clapping for everyone.
Early on, Colin went around to the different stations and seemed to enjoy what he was doing. He especially loved playing basketball with Daddy.
...I can tell that Kailey will always be Colin's biggest supporter. She was so good and happy watching what was going on.
but for the rest of the 40 minutes of the session (of 45), Colin was doing this...crawling EVERYWHERE. While the previous pictures show he was participating in the different activities, he was literally at each of those for about 30 seconds, and then he was off crawling again.
However, at the end, we got together in the circle again to do this activity which Colin loved participating in (it was kind of like a song with clapping and other activities)...
...and slowly but surely, Colin made it to the center of the circle where he was EXTREMELY happy to be.
If I tried to pull him back, he just scooted his body back to the center again. Here is stretching like a big boy...
For the rest of the weekend, we were mostly around at home enjoying being together. Kailey's new favorite toy is the farm and she seems like she is talking while she plays with the animals.
And one more thing...Kailey PERFECTED her "cheeeeeese" face this weekend. As soon as she sees the camera on her, she cheeses it up for the camera.
