17 months old and daycare meeting!

The boys were 17 months old on Tuesday. Where is time going? It moves so fast! This has been a big month with Jack starting walking, both boys doing a lot of talking, pointing, laughing, and growing! It's amazing to see how much they have changed even in the 5 weeks I have been home from school. It's sad to think about them starting daycare in a month and me having to return back to work. I have enjoyed every minute I have been home with them so much!







We sat down with the daycare yesterday and told them honestly that Sumner isn't walking. He might be walking in a month, but he might not, and I need to stop stressing and know if it will be OK if he isn't. The room they are going to be in is closed for the summer because it was repainted, carpeted, given new hardwood floors, and is all redone. When the boys start, there will only be 4 kids total in their room including them. (with 2 teachers!) They won't have a full class until October. For this reason, they feel comfortable with Sumner not walking. We'll re-assess end of September/beginning of October. I am confident Sumner will be walking by then. The boys will be 18m adjusted October 8th. So good news, and no more worries!

I totally agree with the daycare people. Sumner WILL walk in his own time. He may just be taking his time and that is just fine and dandy!!! Do not stress about this!!

happy 17 months boys!!!!!!!

I'm sure summy will be walking in no time or at least when he is ready!! Great daycare that you are using though, some are SO strict about this.

First of all they are SO precious. Secondly you couldn't ask for a better caregiver to child ratio. That is awesome. I hope going back to school goes well. Jared is counting down the days until he has to return to teaching also.

wow, that sounds like a great setup! i know our teachers would be drooling over such a small class:) i'm sure he will get excellent specialized attention and it could be the perfect environment for him to thrive!
