Ben is the STAR

It was so neat last night to go to Ben's program and see how truly talented and intelligent he is. Other kids his age as well as older ones were so easily distracted and some didn't even sing. Ben was right there doing the motions and sang everything correctly.

When people see him in public or we take him to see the Doctor, they always say how advanced his language skills seem to be for his age. I don't know if it is because he is naturally aware of everything or if it is because we take the time to talk to him and not treat him like a little baby.

I can't wait to see how he is with Whit. I'm certain that he will be extremely loving. Last night, as he was leaving, he was giving all of his classmates hugs and kisses. He loves his teacher, Mrs. Carol, and all the kids at the school seem to know him pretty well. It will be interesting to see how he does next year in a public school setting. I am still worried about his issues with talking back and being aggressive. Perhaps when the baby gets here it will help with that. Knowing my luck, it will probably make it worse...
