This morning in church he was sitting on my lap and clapping his hands during worship. He got a little carried away with it and hit me in the face. Instantly he looks at me and says, "Sorry mommy." He also says, "Mesi Mommy," right away. He will not say THANK YOU. He knows how to and he prefers the Creole, "Mesi." :-)
One of his daily passtimes is to name off EVERYONE he knows! He does this by going, "Avery! um, um, JoJo, um, um, Amourah, um, um, Ms. Willie, um, um...." until he has named literally everyone :-)
He has been taking gymnastics for about a month and loves it. He also continues to love basketball, soccer and baseball.
He can zip his coat and anything else on his own. He puts his own shoes on. Anytime he does one of these things he exclaims, "I did it! Good job!" Yesterday he chose his own clothes which consisted of navy sweat pant shorts, socks, gray Jordan's, a bright green shirt with head phones on it along with a down red winter coat.....like this we went on a car ride....no pants...just shorts...he was a sight.
His eating has picked up quite a bit. Tonight besides the macaroni and hotdogs, he also ate carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, peas and salmon! I am so proud of him for this! A healthy boy he shall be!
He can point out colors when I say the names of them...he does not offer the color name on his own. But I ask, "Where is purple?" and he gets it right most of the time. He also clearly knows how to count forward and backwards from 10, but he does not do it on his own. If I say a number he says the next number. He does not seem to have a grasp of the alphabet but we are working on it. He loves puzzles and books! His favorite book is, "Good night, moon."
At bedtime most recently he needs a long hug, a kiss and then we need to touch thumbs that are in the good-job, thumbs up position. He then says, "Good job! Good boy!" Not sure if this is coming from his preschool? Maybe the give him thumbs up and say those phrases once he finally lays down and resolves to sleep/rest?!? Sleep or rest at his school are still not the strong parts of his day.
