New Developments

It feels like John is growing by leaps and bounds these days... I don't often have the camera to capture these changes, but here are a few of the newest interests/developments in our world.

John has been really interested in learning his letters lately- so a little sidewalk chalk out on our black deck has been great- lets just hope it washes away :) Oh, and the practice is paying off- he can now write his name and ABBY- sometimes the letters are out of order and sometimes perfectly backwards, but he's really getting it- and so proud!!!

Another thing he has recently mastered: the 'fireman pole' at the playground... he doesn't even call out for a spotter anymore!

Our little architect has also been building a ton with his magformers. We out the 'directions' away and let him just imagine- he described this creation as a car carrier for on a ship- yes, he is his fathers' son...

Also on his list of new interests is a fascination with playing dress up... I think he makes a pretty cute knight :) Thank goodness for Playcentre and their full closet of dress up clothes!

It is so nice to see so many of the activities they all of you are participating in and Lily's development! Seeing John grow up 'almost' right before our eyes is wonderful. So happy to hear that Julie and Dick are with you at this exciting time. Love, Mom & Dad
