Well this has been a huge month for Tommy!!! Our little man is growing like a weed! I can barely lift him up now! Pants that were short on him now just fit! I am anxious for the next Dr appt to see how much you have brown since being home. Since referral till now he has grown 5 inches and gained 10lbs!!!! No more temper tantrums unless your brother is teasing you!! He is a typical 5 year old but actually I am amazed at how well you still except NO! I say still because you are learning quickly form your siblings that Mom and Dad tend to wear down with ample whining! We are working on making eye contact with those outside the family and saying hello and answering questions. Tommy is not to keen on new people so he hides out and pretends he cant hear you talking to him but he is starting to slowly come out of his shell. This month you started preschool! The teachers are amazed at how well he is doing in everything! Letters, numbers, colors, shapes..all mastered! Now we are working on making some friends and learning to socialize but that is coming along great! 3 months! What will the next few bring! Tommy is so sweet, he is very inquisitive of everything and a very quick learner. This month you also lost your first tooth! This was a tough one..he had no idea what to do with a wiggly tooth and refused to wiggle it out or let anyone touch it. Well the new tooth started to pop up behind it so we knew we had to get that one out sooooo in comes the tooth fairy talk! Money is a great motivator and now that he has experienced it once I don't think we will have any trouble again! I'm sad to say it is all English now no more Sidaminga or Amharic not even to your sister:( Who you lovingly call Millionie! Your favorite things to do are listen to music on your siblings Ipods or in the car! The funniest moment this month was catching you by surprise singing into your sisters Microphone while dancing..yes we caught it on tape! Tommy is ad the snow is melting but also happy for clear roads to ride his bike!! Praying for lots of snow free days to come!!
