On the way to getting fit

Well we have officially joined the Community Center/gym and we are all excited about it. One part that I am most looking forward to is getting William to socialize. They offer free babysitting (up to 2 hours) for exercising parents (you must stay on the campus) and we are hoping he will learn to be nicer to people. He is used to being around mom all day so he is very shy towards strangers. Actually he gets a little bonkers when people approach him. We plan to introduce him to the big room and slowly get to the point that we leave him in there. We are hopeful this might inadvertently spark his speech. He shows he really wants to speak but can't quite get the words out. I sure hope this works!! Wish us luck! Now I have to run out and get some workout attire... can't wait to ditch the extra fluff :)

  3. The community center gym sounds awesome and what a freaking Blessing that they offer child care! How great is that! My guess is that William is going to meet some little friends his age, get super attached, and enjoy his time there tremendously. It will totally be good for his speech, as he'll want to communicate with his new little pals. What a wonderful idea!

  4. That's what I'm talking about. This sounds like so much fun. FREE childcare on the campus while I get my workout on too? OH yes, I am so happy for you. William will fill right in and adjust just fine.
