You LOVE to play outside. You enjoy riding your four wheeler and scooter the most. Your bike is a bit frustrating right now. You just can't seem to get how to peddle the right way, but that is a challenge we are going to be tackling real soon:) You love to swim and are getting SO good at it! You wear your floaties and now love to wear goggles. You can swim under the water and can jump in and attempt cannon balls:) Ha! And you absolutely LOVE any water gun you see. Ugh.
You still take an afternoon nap on most days. I try to put you down around 2:00 and you sleep until about 4:30ish. There are days you miss a nap, and you are pretty good, but we can count on at least one meltdown around dinner time!
You usually go to bed around 8:30 or 9:00. You never go to sleep with out Mouse! Mouse (and Marley) are your best sleeping buddies! Our night time routine is a bit long because you LOVE to read book after book after book. Your favorite book would probably be "Tough Boris" or Curious George. You also like to play a few minutes of racecars on your new car mat. They have to be parked in just the right spot before we turn off the lights. You listen to the same music every night before bed and love to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". Some nights it takes you a little while to fall asleep, but Daddy ALWAYS checks on you to make sure you are OK before he comes to bed and you are always sound asleep.
You usually sleep until 7:30 or 8 the next day. When you are ready to get up, you call for us to come and get you. Most mornings you are all smiles, but some mornings, even though you call for us, you like to hide under your pillow and try to get a few more quiet minutes in! Ha!
I think you talk a lot for your age. A lot of people tell me that. I love the way you say your words! Here are some things you say a lot...
We had a tree that fell in a storm a few weeks ago in some woods near our house. Every time we drive by it you say..."See that tree fall down?", "What happened?". You also say..."Remember we went there?"..."Maybe"..."Heard that noise?"..."We want a doggie! We want a doggie!"..." Mommy, can you help me?"...and a phrase we are working on you NOT saying is "Leave me alone". I don't like that one at all:(
You love to watch Curious George on t.v. and you like to play the Curious George beach game on the computer. I made you a rice table a while back and you like to do that too. You LOVE anything Toy Story. That is by far your favorite movie! Well, Peter Pan too:). You ONLY want to wear your basketball shorts these days (like daddy) and you give me a fit if I make you wear something else:). You like for me to be your teacher in your Sunday School class otherwise you cry when we drop you off for church. You have lots of good buddies, but Jay is who you love to play with and run in the gym with:) You love to brush your teeth. You want to do it many, many times a day! Ha! You know all your colors and your ABC's. You like to listen to "your music" in the car and love to sing the "na na" song (Every Move I Make) and The Wise Man Built His House Upon The Rock.
You are a super big brother to Lovie. You help by getting me diapers or help me by throwing them away. You sometimes play a little rough though. You like to tackle Brooklyn Bear or sometime sit on her! Yikes!
We are working on potty training these days. You are doing pretty good at it. We are just kind of taking it slow.
I love to give you lots of hugs and kisses All. The. Time! You are my sweet boy and I just can't help but love you to pieces!
I love you, Bubbie! To the moon and back!
