Aaron Andrès Seals
At 3½ years old, Aaron was definitely more preschooler than toddler. He could climb, run and ride a bike with ease. Aaron had a speech assessment and was placed into the Early Childhood program to assist with speech and social skill development (but his knowledge of letters and numbers was advanced for his age). The teachers said he was the sweetest, most well-behaved child. He was very eager to learn. He enjoyed school ("Breakfast, potty time, go to school!") and he got to take the bus home - he loved school busses! He could already read the words "up", "no" and "stop." Aaron also tried very hard to please, and also to help. He would get the juice out of the refrigerator (and put it back), and would throw things away when asked. Michael was trying to teach Aaron how to fetch his Cokes (and succeeded).
We were still in the throws of potty training, but were out of diapers, utilizing Pull-ups and cotton training pants. Aaron also had allergies, but to what allergens was unknown. Aaron continued to be tall and skinny. It was difficult finding pants that fit him in the waist!
Aaron and Melissa were very attached and played together well. Aaron still tried to boss Melissa around a little, but finally without pushing. Usually we just heard "Miiiiiiiissy! Miiiiiiiiiiiiissy! Miiiiiiiiiiiiiissy!" There was no doubt that they loved each other very much.
