Been Too Long!
Cass has grown a lot since his decant. He's going to be celebrating his 6th birthday this summer! I still count my many blessings everyday that he's here and I thank Father in Heaven for lending him to our family. He still has quite the personality, Mr. "I'm going to do things my way and get a reaction from everyone". He is just wrapping up his kindegarten year and has made great progress in just the past several weeks. He is still playing catch up with his peers, but he is showing he wants to work and he knows he has to work hard.
Cass is a big brother now. After 5 years of being the baby we were blessed with a healthy baby girl whom Cass seems to not be able to keep his lips nor his hands off of. He adores her and she him. In fact when we told him and his other sister and brother that we were having a baby, instead of the jealousy we expected, he shouted "Yay!! I'm not going to be the baby anymore!"
He is in a great program in our district where he gets therapy and lots of one on one time. The teacher to student ratio is low and they try to incorporate him into as much of the mainstream activities with the typical kids as possible.
He has glasses now, has had them for about a year and everywhere we go people stop us and say "He looks just like the kid from Jerry McGuire" or "Stewart Little". He is still so lovable and tender. Forever my little boy!
