Today Savannah graduated from the infant room to the toddler room at school. Hooray for Savannah!
Over the last few weeks, Savannah has been spending 1-4 hours each day in the toddler room to make transition easier. According to her teachers, Savannah has been doing a great job playing by herself, as well as interacting with the other kids in the toddler class. Although Savannah isn't walking yet, we're hoping that she'll be motivated to walk very soon as she sees her other classmates walking.
There are three big changes in the toddler room. First, Savannah has to wear shoes all day. Most of the time, Savannah only wears her shoes for a couple hours before she takes them off and plays with them. :-) Also, we now send 5 sippy cups each day (versus 3 cups in the past). Savannah will get two more drink breaks since she'll be playing outside twice a day. Lastly, in her new class, Savannah will take one nap that's 1.5-2 hours long. Right now, Savannah takes a morning and afternoon nap, so napping once a day will be an adjustment.
Plus, now that Savannah has moved into the toddler room, there's another small perk for Mommy and Daddy. Tal and I will be paying $13 less for childcare each week . :-)
