|Miles collecting water at the beach on his birthday.|
Once the meeting was over on Thursday, I felt a huge weight lifted. Miles had his last occupational therapy session on Friday and both the OT and I cried bittersweet tears. I realized that I'm the one that's had a real tough time with Miles's transition to preschool. Sure, Miles is in a new environment, but he seems so happy there that it's as if he's been there forever. But for me, it was hard to let go of my connection and need for his therapists, their support and even their friendship. Miles turning 3 signifies a huge shift. He's not a baby anymore, he's a big boy, a toddler. My baby's growing!! And on Saturday we celebrated his birthday doing all his favorite things: playing at the beach, a long nap, dinner at Vegan Glory, his favorite restaurant, and finishing the night with his favorite movie, Toy Story. We sang Happy Birthday three times on Saturday and each time Miles blew his candles and clapped with such joy and excitement. This was the first year Miles could actually blow his candles and I think he understood full well that it was his birthday. Amazing. Love!
