He Can Write His Name!

>> Wednesday, January 27, 2010

It may be hard to see in this picture, but I am too proud not to share. We were playing with our window markers today to pass the time on this frigid winter day. It was fun to create pictures on the backdrop of the apartment buildings behind us. Lucas drew a window and a truck crashing into the building and even a dragon trying to climb in the window. Love that kid's creative mind!! But as we were playing, Lucas starting writing his name. I didn't even know he knew how to write his name. We had been working on it but I had never seen him do it independently. But he did today! And I am a pretty proud mama! The "s" is my favorite part. He stood there for a second, thinking about how to do it. He finally just swirled the marker around and said "S!" I think he did a good job writing his name. But I am a bit biased! Oh, and he also drew an little person next to it complete with body and round head and legs and arms and a face. I haven't seen him draw a person with that much detail before. This is a developmental milestone, right? Either way, I am so proud of my little man!

It has been a bit of a rough week so far. My new job has been going pretty well but I hit a bit of a rough patch this week (week 3). The kids are mostly doing well but I am noticing an increased clinginess from both boys, especially Caden. Lucas had an emotional crying fit at his grandma's yesterday when he saw my picture on her refrigerator. He has never done that before. Plus, my relationship with my new boss is a bit on edge. I feel like the rules are already changing from what I was initially promised when I joined this team and it is bringing me serious stress and second thoughts. I plan to have a talk with my boss soon and hash some things out. These are probably all just some wrinkles that need to be ironed out and just a natural part of the adjustment process for us all. I am not giving up yet since I think I made the initial decision for the right reasons. But, it has just made for a rough week so far.
Seeing Lucas write his name this afternoon made my heart glad. Much needed. And he was pretty thrilled that I was thrilled.
