Before we commence The Frog's birthday celebration, this was Peach, earlier that day proclaiming: "I'm goin to gramma's house."
I love it when The Frog knows that something Peach does is silly and baby-ish and is able to point it out and laugh about it with me (and Peach loves to make people laugh, so she loves it too). One of the most rewarding things about being a mom, I've decided, is when it's clear your kids love each other. Though mine don't always get along, they clearly do.
The Frog is loving preschool and is essentially potty trained. (finally...) He still sleeps with a diaper, but I'd rather do that as long as necessary, rather than wake up with a wet bed every night. I love it when he does things that make him proud of himself. He's becoming very competitive, and (like most of us) isn't yet great at losing- especially to his little sister. But if you want something done, a pretty good way of getting it is by making it a race :)
He's had a glider bike for a year now and he's obviously ready for the real thing, so we got him a bike. However, they all come with training wheels in that size and he won't let me take them off yet, though I know he could do it.
He still loves spiderman, cars, sharks, dogs, dinosaurs, space ships, and anything related to Halloween.
He loves books and is more interested in fine-motor activities now, especially mazes and "to-dot to-dots".
I sure love this little man!
