Little boy, you are changing so fast here lately-could you please slow down a little bit? You make us smile each and every day-you crack us up (or “you crack my up,” as you would say). Each day is an adventure with you-you always keep us on our toes! You generally have two moods: either really happy, or really NOT happy. Luckily for us, you are generally happy. (Except right when you wake up, most of the time anyways.) This month has been a fun one with you…
-We went from a week of snow days in March, to pretty high 70 degree days! You always prefer the warm days, because you get to play outside. I think you would spend every waking minute outside if we let you.
- You got to go to the zoo-twice! We went when Mommy was on Spring Break, and then you got to go after school started back with Aunt Christie, Alec, Beth, Wyatt, and Katie Ann. You loved petting the goats and seeing the snakes when you went with me. You got to see the dino exhibit when you went with your cousins, which thrilled you to death!
-You had your very first dentist appointment, and it went great! You climbed right up in that chair like you had done it a million times, and let them do everything without so much as a peep. They were amazed at how good you did, and I was really proud. 🙂
- We did the “Broadway Bounce” with Josie’s girl scouts. You liked getting to see the mascots, and you loved getting to kick a soccer ball into a regulation-size goal. You really wanted to rock climb, but you were a little too small. You did a great job dribbling the free basketball you got. However, I think your favorite part of the whole experience was getting to ride the shuttle bus to and from our car! 🙂
We went to the Adventure Science center as a family one night. This was your first time there, and you loved it! I thought you might be fascinated with the dino exhibit, or really like the stars, but I think you would have stayed in the fake car all.night.long. You did not want to leave at the end of the night, which is always a sign of success!
You have started praying for whoever is in the room at each meal time. It is funny and sweet at the same time (especially if you don’t know everyone’s names!) Your sweet Sunday School teachers, Mrs. Hannah and Mrs. Meghan, told me you said the sweetest prayer in class on Sunday, too. You prayed for your teachers and all your friends, even the kids you didn’t know. I know you don’t exactly understand what you are doing right now, I love hearing your sweet voice say your prayers.
-Some of your favorites right now: the color “DREEN!” (green), playing outside, riding your bike, playing with the iPad, absolutely ANYTHING involving monster trucks, roughhousing with your Daddy, playing make believe with Josie, being read to, swinging, balloons, listening to the “Frozeen” (Frozen) soundtrack (of which you know a LOT of the words), helping Mommy cook (you LOVE to stir and set the table), playing with Bert (the cat)
-You have the biggest imagination, and you love to tell us BIG, elaborate stories. You can turn just about any situation into a story, and add all kinds of details to it. You can also turn anything into a toy, including your hand (it is a race car about half of the time).
-You make me laugh all the time with some of the things you say. Just this week, you started using “I” sometimes instead of “my,” which makes me sad-I’m not ready for you to start saying things correctly! I love it when you say things like, “My gonna fix it,” and “This is shes shoe,” and “Yeah, shoo-wa” (sure).
You are such a wild and crazy, fun-loving little boy. It is so much fun to be your mom- I sometimes wish you could just stay little forever, but it is so much fun to watch you grow, too.
I love you sweet boy,
