Flu Shot, Check

We may be a little late, but you had the sniffles a while back and we wanted to make sure you were well before we brought you to the doctor. We didn't tell you what was up until we were at the doctor's office building.  You didn't take it very well when you found out why we were there.  There was some cajoling that needed to be done, and we all walked into the building with our fingers crossed.

Needless to say, when the time came, there were tears and wailings and hiding under a stool at the last moment, but you were a brave boy ( even thought you said you weren't because you were afraid - now THAT was a brave thing to admit ), and with some big bear hugs and a couple of tootsie roll lollies later, all was forgiven. :)

Better late than never

Aye, we still be playing catch-up with October. :)

We haven't carved a pumpkin in, oh, er, a NUMBER of years. Possibly from way before you were born. But this year, Daddy was determined that you have the opportunity to participate in the carving of a Jack O Lantern. You thought it was pretty cool :)

Some days are still pretty warm, but most night are getting much cooler, and here you are, rockin' your PJs. LOL

Can you believe we go to the mall like, twice in a year?  We pretty much go to Walmart for our every day needs. So, the other day, when Daddy needed to go to one of the stores at the mall, we went off and did the "fun" stuff! hehe. You even met another little 4year old boy at the indoor playground thingy, whose name was Jaxon! You thought that was really something.

On the school front, a few weeks ago, we read "The Glorious Flight: Across the English Channel with Louis Bleriot" and had fun learning about planes, England, France, aviation etc.  We try to get what we can from the book, even if it is just for exposure at this point.

 photo AAAADBspMOQAAAAAAacQfA_zps81ed7319.jpgI really should be way more diligent at trying to describe what an amazingly sweet little boy you are.  And such a silly one at that. AND who is proud to be silly :)

Being the silly billy gilly willy nilly dilly that you are, you LOVE Mo Willems' Elephant and Pig series as well as Jan Thomas' Dust Bunny ( and others ) books.  :) You are getting to be really good at reading, and usually YOU are the one reading these books to ME!

There may be an odd word or two that you may have a little trouble with, but usually, you read it with such nuance, and you catch just about all the jokes.  Plus, there's rhyming in the Jan Thomas books, which is always big with you :)

Sometimes you slyly move some of the books from the "read" pile over to the "to read" pile so we can read them over and over and over again :)  And usually I'm glad you do, because I love these books too! They're full of sweet and kind stories, which happen to be hilarious. 

I'm glad you appreciate the lighter side of life, and that you LOVE books and reading - you still love to snuggle up in my lap to read the books at bed time, but sometimes all I get is a face-full of hair, now that you are so tall! :)

I often remember back to when we would read "Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you See" over and over again every night, with you in my lap, and me being able to see over your head :)
