I have really enjoyed watching Ethan participate more fully in the activities. It is especially amusing with his growing vocabulary, he now says the sweetest and funniest things. Hannah and Ethan have there own conversations and I find myself eavesdropping. More and more I am finding that I can sit back and quietly observe them while they are working.
