What’s New: You are now a Big Girl Bed kid! You are really loving it and SO proud. Whenever someone comes over to the house, you immediately ask if they want to see it! This new freedom has meant the end of napping at home, something you had been resisting for a while (you still go to your room for “quiet time”). Since you aren’t napping, you go down like a ROCK at bedtime. So tired!
Toddler Skills: Your daycare has been doing lessons around Black History month, and it has been so awesome. You are really into it and come home telling us about George Washington Carver (“he’s a scientist”) and President Obama (“he gives speeches”). We’ve been getting you library books to support this and are just SO thrilled that you are showing an early interest in history.
Moments to Remember:
You’ve been talking about Martin Luther King, Jr. since the holiday last month, and one of the things you’ve told us about him is that “He got shot.” We’ve just said, yes, to this and moved on because we haven’t been really sure what that means to you. A few weeks later you had your 3 year doctor’s appointment and had to get an injection as part of your TB skin test. When Mommy was asking you about your visit later, you said that you got a shot “like Dr. King!”
Despite the fact that you have only been three for a little more than a month, you are constantly talking about how you are going to turn 4. And that you are going to have a Hello Kitty birthday party when you do. You seriously talk about this every day. Slow your roll, little one.
Likes: Sharks. Treats. Your big girl bed. Dr. King. President Obama (“He loves me.”). Eating snow “like Sven”. Cinderella. Charlie (and especially getting your picture taken with him). Dragons Love Tacos. Books about ballerinas. Taylor Swift. You are always saying you want to “shake it off”.
Dislikes: Being sick. It makes you super whiny and tantrum prone (which is completely reasonable).
Adventures: Grandma and Pop Pop came for a visit! We went to Baltimore to visit the Aquarium! (Other than that it’s been a string of mild colds with a brief stomach bug thrown in. Yay, Winter!)
