We've been rolling with the punches (i.e. your moods) better this week now that we've figured out your new nap schedule. It's also helped to work in a couple of fun outings between our errands and continued trip preparations. Plus, we've been more careful to be attentive to you when you need us to play or just listen.
On Monday, mommy had an errand the next town over so we took advantage of the spring-like weather and explored a new park. You were so brave going down larger and larger slides without hesitation! Your pants were soaked by the end of it, but you had so much fun. We even met a new feline friend there.

Two updates before mommy signs off for the night:
One is that your alphabet and numbers are getting more accurate and clearer every day! You've also added other songs to your repertoire such as our special naptime/bedtime song, the Clean Up song, "Twinkle, Twinkle" and "Old Macdonald." Another cool thing you've started to do is 'read' books with mommy before naps and bedtime. They're the same books I've been reading for ages, so you know some of the words and most of the intonations I use when reading them, so you just plug along with me. It's really amazing!

granted it was over your footie PJs, but you made it work!
|And, you FINALLY started wearing this adorable apron mommy had made for you. |
It is so fun to see you 'cooking' away in your little kitchen!
|Aren't these felt veggies from our friends in Maryland adorable???|

rolling your shopping cart back and forth across your giant floor piano mat!
It doesn't sound as awful as you'd think...
