Shay - Described part deux

 We recently had a meeting with the team involved in Shay's care and part of that was a description of Shay.  This comes from the excellent day care workers at Sedgewick Crescent day care in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

Shay
  • The more serious brother for most tasks but can be silly and have a funny sense of humour when the mood takes him
  • Social butterfly; he has his favourite friends to hang out with on the playground; eat lunch with, and sit with at circle and playtime
  • Strong willed and independent in all aspects of the day; pouring milk; feeding; getting self into walker; and starting to dress himself
  • Kind disposition; quiet and sometimes shy; seeks out Mom or favourite staff member at the time for reassurance; he is intelligent with a big bright smile
  • Loves puzzles; sensory water bins and sand bins; dramatic play in the loft including walking himself up the stairs with some assistance from teachers.  Uses his upper body strength to position both feet on each stair
  • Large interest in group circle time; listens attentively to stories, has his favourite songs to request, claps and does actions in the songs; strong participant in group activities
  • Holds full conversations about horseback riding and/or what he did at home the night before and other exciting topics
  • Showing some interest in toilet training; independently pulls self up to sink or any other activity he wants to play at
  • Shows interest in books and quieter activities throughout the day
  • Loves all aspects of the playground, running down the hills, playing in the sandbox, chasing friends through the gazebo and around the bike path

 Here is a very recent picture of our little man.  We are so proud of you Shay!
