This has been a big month for you! We went from playing in the snow, to full-blown spring mode. I’m not sure which you prefer, because as long as you can ride your bike, you are happy, and you rode your bike in the snow, and you ride your bike every day now. 🙂
- Mommy went to Dallas for 2 nights, and you spent all your time with Daddy. You were excited, because you LOVE having “Daddy days.”
-You love spending the night with people now. This month you spent the night with Mee-Maw once, with Grammy and Pappy once, and with Nana once. You are so blessed to have so many awesome grandparents in your life!
- You had a really quick fever- it only lasted for about 6 hours, but then you had a cold for about a week and half. It didn’t slow you down, though!
-You, Josie, and I went to see the movie “Cinderella” with our friends from church, the Seavers. You love going to the big “movie theAeeter.”
-We celebrated Easter with your cousins with our big annual egg hunt at our house-you had a BLAST searching for eggs, and comparing with Matthew. You actually know what you’re doing now. 🙂
-You looked so handsome in your bow-tie that Ta made you for Easter Sunday. You were proud to wear it. You are learning so much in your Sunday School class. You told me, and anyone else who would listen, all about the empty tomb, “Because God’s not dead, He’s alive!”
-You, Josie, and I were in a small wreck on the interstate. A tractor trailer truck changed lanes and bumped our car. Luckily no one was hurt at all, it was just a little scary!
- We had a great Spring break. I tried on all your summer clothes from last year, and discovered you FINALLY had outgrown the summer clothes you wore for two years straight! So we did some Goodwill shopping to find you some shorts for summer. (You are still in mostly 2T shorts and 3T shirts-tiny, tiny squirt.) We also went to the zoo with your friend Isaac Henry! You love IH so much, and you two are the sweetest friends. 🙂 We went to the greenway twice for Mommy to jog, and you got to have stroller rides and play on the playground, two things that you love.
-You help us BIG time in our garden. You love to haul things to the fire pit in your little wheelbarrow, and you and Josie shoveled and hauled a ton of dirt to our garden beds! You really love anything that involves being outside and getting dirty!
-You also love to help me cook and set the table. You love helping me swap the laundry, and you are good at matching socks. 🙂 You can help put your laundry away, and you feed Bert all by yourself. You can clear your plate from the table, and know how to put your jacket, hat, and shoes away when you come in. You can pick out your own clothes and get dressed all by yourself. You are learning to make your bed. You are getting to be SUCH a big boy!
-You NEVER stop talking. You tell big stories, all the time, and are always pretending something. I just love your little voice, and I love the way you still mispronounce some of your words. One of my favorite things you said this month is, “My need to go to a quiet room to think. My being a grown-up.”
-Other things you love: books, me “pat-patting” you before bed, all your sleeping buddies (bear named Fuzz ball, an otter named Donut, 2 dogs- one named Ice Cream, one named Brownie, a dolphin named Dolphie, a green star blanket, and blue frog blanket- your bed is getting full!), riding your bike, Bible stories on CD (you can’t go to bed without them!), swinging, Legos, monster trucks, cars, the snowboarding game on Daddy’s iPad, the movie Big Hero 6, anything the color green (or brown, or “tamaflauge), pretending we are “injas” (ninjas), playing “Mario walk” with Daddy, “joking” with people, and taking baths.
-You have finally started eating, a LOT, on a consistent basis. I don’t know if it is Spring, or you are just finally hungry, but maybe it means you are going to have a growth spurt. 🙂
Little boy, you are the sweetest, most loving, funniest little boy I know. I love you to the moon and back!
