Despite all the work we put into the Dragon Party, the School Party totally trumped it!
We had the most wonderful afternoon at Dexter’s school while his teacher talked about what it meant to complete 3 years. After we shared Dexter’s story, his friends gave him a special card they made and then each one took turns saying something nice to him … I lost count of how many “Te quiero” and “Te amo” were said!

On Monday, Dexter finally took his very first crawling-in-a-straight-line steps!

And how did the mirror get so far away? We videotaped this right after he went through all that work to get the mirror:
