I've been very busy with school, playdates and other activities. A lot of my friends have been turning 3, so I've been making my way around the birthday party circuit. Did you know that people in CA have their birthday parties at parks? In January? Crazy, right? I'm getting really good at whacking a pinata, and at collecting party favors and candy.
I've been taking a gymnastics class for the last few months and last week I graduated from KinderStars to MiniStars. My Mom is really happy, but I think that's because she can now watch me during class from a chair while she drinks her coffee, instead of actually helping me. Silly Mommy.
I've been practicing syllables during mealtimes and I'm getting really good. Ea-ther-ton. 3 syllables. And recently we've started working on basic math. Did you know that if you 3 cookies and Daddy eats one, that only leaves 2 cookies?! Sometimes these math "lessons" make me really angry.
As you know, my Mom is pregnant and her belly is starting to get big. She said that pretty soon she's going to have trouble carrying me, but I think the bump makes a good chair. I told her that I only want a brother (that's a boy, right?), because then we can play trucks and stuff together. She said I'll probably get my wish. We find out for sure if it's a brother or sister next Tuesday, so keep your eyes open for that announcement.
Valentine's Day is a hot topic around our house. I've specifically asked for the following things-- trucks, Kit Kats, Snickers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and jelly beans. I think I should get a truck for every holiday. Wanna know what I'm giving my Mom? Flowers and cash. Yep, a "bunch of cash".
My Mom is starting a YouTube channel for this blog, so she can begin sharing the hours and hours of video footage she takes of me. You are really missing out on my gymnastic and singing skills by her keeping all the movies on her phone. She said she hopes to have links up soon.
Other than that, we're just enjoying a mild winter and trying to get out of the house as much as possible. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new cousin, who is due this Thursday. Aunt Megan and Uncle Justin are at their doctor's appointment right now, so who knows, maybe she'll be here by tomorrow! I'm not 100% thrilled with the idea of having 2 girl cousins; this is why it's important for my Mom and Dad to keep cranking out the boys.
Thanks for following along. Two new announcements to come soon so check back often!!
