Alexander and Jordan
March 6 - April 1, 2006
Alexander: It has been a really long time since
my dad has updated the web but he apologizes. He has been very busy for
the past month. He spent the second weekend of March in Kansas City, the
third weekend in San Diego, the fourth weekend working in the hospital, and this
weekend we went on a mini-vacation to a hotel-water park. We have had a
lot of time with mommy but it will be good to spend more time with daddy.
He is not going anywhere for the month of April and will be gone a lot of May
again (Nova Scotia and Chicago).
I am really working on my reading skills. I know almost all of my letters. The only one I have trouble remembering is "J". Now I am trying to remember the sounds that they make. I also can help read the books that my parents read to me. Or at least it looks that way. I can often complete the sentences of many of the stories. Don't tell them that I can't really read; I am just memorizing the words.
I have also been working on peeing in the potty. Most of the time I remember, but sometimes, especially when I am having a lot of fun playing, I forget.
This past weekend we went to the Grand Rios water park for an overnight trip. We wanted to spent some time away from home as a family, so we went there overnight. I did not realize how much I would miss my bed, though, and I had a hard time falling asleep in the hotel. Saturday morning we spent 2 hours at the water park, playing in the wading area, going down the slides and riding on the inner tube. The water was a little cold, so we had to leave when Jordan started to shiver and turn blue.
Jordan: I missed my daddy too while he was gone.
He called everyday and I got to yell some gibberish into the phone. I
tried to tell him that I am learning how to crawl even faster and sometimes can
stand for 1-2 seconds without holding on to something.
Alexander was right about the water park. It was a lot of fun jumping up and down in the water and splashing, but I got pretty cold. My dad had to bring me into a smaller sitting pool that was warm so I could stop shivering. Eventually they wrapped me in a couple of towels, and I fell laid my head on my dad's shoulder and rested. It was tiring to play so much.
|1. 2. 3.||1-3. I can't decide whether I want to be a drummer or a saxophonist. My parents seem like they are encouraging the saxophone. I wonder why?|
|4. 5.||4-5. Of course I built it myself. I can be pretty tall when I want to.|
|6. 7. 8.||6. I was just hiding a little bit
while I played.
7. I feel like a giant when I crawl around my toy buildings.
8. I thought it was more fun to feed Mommy than to feed myself.
|9. 10. 11.||9-10. Here I sit patient waiting
my turn while Jordan is taking forever with his turn.
11. We learn better if we stand really close.
|12. 13. 14.||12-13. Daddy better watch out
when he tickles me right after I ate. He might not think it is so
funny in a minute.
14. I don't have to sit here so long and eat if I shove it all in my mouth at once.
|15. 16. 17.||15-16. One of us has to be in
here, the other chose to be in here. Can you tell which is which:?
