B is for Balloons

Dear Maya,

It's been a busy and beautiful week. But, boy, I'll bet you're beginning to become bored with the letter we've been brushing up on. Yup, it's "B" and as well as the shape and sound of the letter, we've also been practicing your pronunciation of the week's key word, balloon. You tend to say "A-yoon" instead.

We did some "B" crafts and also used balloons that mommy drew the letter "B" on to play volleyball. When we went to story hour at the library on Tuesday (which you participated in so much more than usual, I must say), mommy founds some great "B" books to take out for you, too. You've gotten so good at reciting Eric Carle's "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" and pointing to the letters in the "Bingo" book. But mommy's favorite is Sandra Boynton's "Belly Button Book" hands down!

On Wednesday we went to a new park and tried a new time for going--8:45 in the morning! We took peanut butter toast with us and some towels to dry the night's rain off the slides, then spent about an hour running around and playing all by ourselves. It was a really nice way to start the day!

On Friday we went to another new place--a historic mansion along the river with beautiful sprawling grounds and gardens. You enjoyed watching the frogs jump into the pond, climbing a tree, listening to the train and picking up sticks, rocks and pine cones. Next time we go we'll have to take daddy!

As of Friday afternoon you seem to have caught a little head cold. Your nose is runny and you haven't been quite as energetic, but you do seem to be getting better already today. I hope so because we've got a lot more fun planned for the coming weeks! Love you!
