Today is Ben's last day in the infant class room. On Monday, he moves up to the Toddler I room. Here, he will sit and eat at a little table with all his friends. He will transition completely from the bottle to the sippy cup. They go outside to play a little bit every day! Also, he will go from 2 naps a day (morning and afternoon) to only one nap from 12:30-2:30 PM. Not only will his nap schedule change, but he will start sleeping on a cot!! (This I HAVE to see!)
We bought him a new "lovey" to take with him to the new classroom. He usually sleeps at home with his Benjamin Dog. Now, he will have his Benjamin Monkey for his nap time.
Ben is ready to move up. He's practically stepping on the all babies, bored of all the toys, swinging all the baby play mats over his head and too tall for his crib. Needless to say, I am excited and a little nervous about the transition. We will miss all his wonderful teachers in the infant room, but his new teachers have good reputations, too. They will also begin really working with him on speech development and will start sending home "mini report cards"....nothing too anal, just informative. Here's to a new start for the new year for our little baby who is growing up so quickly...
