I don’t know…but I submitted a photo of Nik and Anju to the Regis & Kelly Beautiful Baby 2008 Contest. Get this: the winner will appear on the Regis & Kelly show, get on the cover of Parenting magazine, and $125,000 towards his/her college education. The 4 runners-up will get $25,000 each towards college, and all 10 semi-finalists will receive $1,000 in Walgreens gift cards.
So what the heck…I submitted a couple photos:
It’s voter driven, so as I don’t know towns full of people, I don’t see our chances as very good. But who knows, right?!
So Nik is now into pretending he is a tiger. No, he hasn’t heard of this one, poor thing. He crawls around on the floor, stalking Anju. Who gets a little nervous, laughs a little, and tries to get out of his way. But there’s no escaping the Nik-tiger!
This morning, he roped me into becoming [myname]-elephant. So there I was, waving my elephant trunk around, being chased by a Nik-tiger, who was growling in his tiger voice: I’m a tiger. Growl. Then Anju had to become the baby elephant. It was all very cute.
Another step forward in Nik’s pretend play. I am really encouraged by his development, lately. [Despite the lack of ABA- the vendor we use seems to have a rotating-door policy for its tutors...no consistency, few hours, last-minute cancellations. Not happy with them right now.] But his social skills classes with a different agency are going really well…he looks forward to going, he talks about his friends by name (huge!).
