Milo is our class mascot. You get to take him home for the weekend if you're well-behaved. I was a 'joy, helpful and affectionate' this week so I got to take Milo. I had to photograph what I did with him and record it in the special book.

Big school

It's now been nearly 2 weeks since I started big school. I didn't really know what to expect. It's not very different from nursery, the main difference is everyone wears the same clothes as me, on the first day I told my classmate that our jumpers matched. They've matched ever since. I haven't really made any real friends yet but hope to do that soon. There's a little girl with down's syndrome in my class who gave me a big hug today when I arrived, then signed 'hallo' to me in makaton, I'm not too familiar with makaton anymore.. but that doesn't matter. I think we'll be good friends. Oh! I've also had a haircut, I've had lice so the hair had to go.

I went to Great Ormond Street today for a palate check up. There were 8 people in the room to see me, but that didn't phase me at all. In fact, I had a ready-made audience so I put on a bit of a show and sang a Killers song. They seemed to enjoy it. As it turns out I have a submucous palate. I will need further tests to see if I'll benefit from surgery or not, hold thumbs I won't need it. One doctor looked in my ear and saw that my left eardrum isn't quite how it should be, will need further tests for that too but at least my hearing is ok - well it was at the last test. They all commented on how confident I am, so to top it off I said 'bye bye poo poo' to them all when I left.
