School is in!

Bruce finally started school again on the day after Labor Day. He was so excited that he told me he wanted to get there two hours early to play on the playground. We managed to get there 20 minutes early after a requisite celebratory stop at Dunkin Donuts. 

Bruce was excited to see his friends again and found that his new teacher is amazing. After the dismissal bell rang on his first day of school, he opted to stay another hour to visit with his kindergarten teacher. 

Phoebe was wishing she was in school, so we are doing home preschool - just me and her (and I guess Oliver too). We are learning our letters and their sounds along with a random unit about bees. 

Oliver is 3.5 months old now and nearly 12 pounds. He qualifies for Early Intervention services because of his prematurity so we will have a case worker visiting weekly to check on him and help him "catch up" developmentally.  He really is doing great though, although I do wish I could get sleep in more than 3-hour increments. Anyway, it's a good thing he is adorable and still looks and smells like a baby. When he cries at night, I remind myself that this is way better than waking up to a cold breast pump and having him a few miles away in a hospital. Above, Oliver is pictured next to his life-size baby doll; the doll is 14 inches long, the same as him when he was born. The doll is wearing one of his preemie outfits; see how much he has grown?!
