Austin has become quite the little helper. He likes to help play with the kitty, unload the laundry, pick up his toys and brush his hair. He says more words every day and he likes to give hugs and kisses. When I pick him up sometimes he pats me on the back. He still loves to read books and he has started to actually play with his toys more and more. He was biting through his binks so we decided to get rid of them since it was dangerous. We had him say goodbye and we threw it away. He cried for a little bit but for the most part it has been a pretty good transition. He still loves nursery. He hasn't ever gotten upset when we drop him off. A few weeks ago the nursery leader told me he cried a little because all the other kids in the class were crying. I guess he felt left out or sad for them and decided to join in.
