Someday when I am a grownup man, I'll live in my own house, and Mommy can live with my daddy in San Francisco. And I will have a wife and live in my own house. Daddy can live with Mommy because Mommy is Daddy's wife.
This week has been filled with a lot of running around, and although it's been fun, I was very excited to mostly stay home today.
Hi to all-here's a little note from me! Jonathan and I have been back to BSF for two or three weeks now, and Jeff is going to the men's Bible study this year, too. Jonathan is excited to be in the "big kids class" both at BSF and at MOPS. Last year I took him to these kid activities (and a few others) because we knew he needed all that time with other kids (and I needed the time with adults, too.) This year, I still take him because he needs the time with other kids, but he really seems to be loving the interaction, which I'm so happy about. There's a big difference between being two and being three!
My mom had wondered if it might be time to put away my Little People and save them for the baby, but it's not time yet! I have a newfound love for playing with my ark and my farm this week. And, I've been having a lot of fun!
"I had some empty parking places, and Great Grandma gave me some more cars so I don't have any more issues."
This post is especially for my faraway grandparents because they like to know what's going on in the yard. We see hummingbirds several times a day. They like our redwoods and they love to drink from our fountains. Yesterday, though, Mommy saw these birds through the window and had to take a quick picture.
"Last night when you, me, and my daddy went to Miriam's house, I think I got Miriam's cup of hot chocolate."
Is the sky flat?
My good buddy, Ella, came over to play today. She brought Ms. Jen and Delia, too. She's in preschool now, so we have to plan our playtime carefully. We haven't had our friends over in awhile, and that's because Mommy says the second half of the summer passed by in a blur. I'm glad the blur is over! Some of our faraway friends are experiencing fall. Our days are getting shorter, but it will be awhile before we have fall-ish weather. That's okay...more time to play outside with Ella!
Now that I'm big, I don't hit as many milestones as I did as a baby, but this one is worth mentioning.
It's a little late, and we don't have any pictures to share, but our weekend was so full of fun things, I want to tell you about it!
This morning, I went to Ella's house to play while Mommy went to the doctor's office. I think I had more fun than Mommy did, but she still seemed happy. The doctor (actually the midwife) listened to the baby's heart and thought that the slow (but healthy) heartbeat meant that the baby is a boy. Mommy and Daddy aren't going to find out whether the baby is a boy or girl, so anybody can guess about it as much as they want. Everything seems to be fine, and Mommy found out she might be feeling kicks and flips in a couple of weeks or so. Pretty neat! Mommy will have another appointment in four weeks and then an ultrasound two weeks after that. We're so thankful for a good report today! And I'm really thankful for a fun time at Ella's house.
No, it's not what you think. Despite my best efforts during my baby and toddler stages, we are not getting a dog. But, Aunt Michelle and Uncle Jamie are going to adopt this one in a few weeks! His name is Cecil. Isn't he cute? He's a basset hound.
You might not know this about me, but when I'm sick, I like to sleep. And today, I'm sleeping a LOT. I slept really late, and I'm taking a long nap, too. My parents aren't sure how this happened-that I sleep when I'm sick-but they're thankful. Anyway, I have a yucky cold and a little fever, too. I'm hoping to sleep it off soon.
Even though it's Season, Daddy only had to go into work for a little while today. We're having unseasonably beautiful weather, so we decided to take a bike ride. Mommy said that in a couple years, our baby can ride in the bike trailer with me. But actually, I hope I'll be riding my own bike by then, since I'll be five. Anyway, we rode our bikes to Starbucks, and then out in the country to see some animals, and then to the park. We're glad we live in a little town so that we can do all those things on one short bike ride.
