It’s hard to believe Lane is 3! Here is what our big boy is up to lately.
-He is currently potty training and doing fantastic! He is great at tee-teeing in the potty as long as he does not have a pull-up on. If he has a pull-up, then it’s like he thinks he has a free pass to skip going to the potty. He still wears a pull-up at night and if we are going to be traveling a long distance. He is VERY proud of his Yo Gabba Gabba and Diego undies!
-He LOVES reading, playing puzzles and matching games. He also loves playing on http://www.starfall.com/
-He can sing his ABCs forwards and backwards. (I did NOT teach him how to do his letters backwards. Ha! In fact, when he does ask me to do it with him we only get to u before he tells me to stop. 🙂 My brain does not work in reverse!)
-He can count (most of the time) to 50. Though every time I try to get a video of him counting, he gets to 20 and says, “Hmmm. I’m done countin!” What a stinker! Why won’t kids perform on demand 😉
-He can spell Lane, Gigi, Nana, Bo, Mom, Dad, zoo, cat and dog.
-He loves to play pretend. He generally pretends to have phone conversations, cook, go to the store or to a family members house (Gigi & Bo, Nana & Bo, etc)
-He loves to RUN! I know most kids do, but if you ask him what he wants to do it is generally ruuunnnnnnn!
-His favorite place to go is the zoo. He loves zebras, lions and elephants. We go almost weekly! He also loves going to the “wader par” (Alabama Adventure).
-He still loves music and dancing. Favorite song is still Tanya Tucker “Oh what it did to me”
-He loves to drive Papa Rock’s truck.
-He is still a terrible eater. We are working on taking a “thank-you” bite. I don’t care if he cleans his plate. I just want him to take one bite of the food he is offered. He is expanding the foods he likes. We are making progress -slowly. His favorites are still milk, yogurt, bananas, pancakes, chicken & french fries (with ketchup!), chips and salsa.
-His favorite cartoons are Yo Gabba Gabba, Team Umizoomi, Ni Hao Kai-Lan, Dora/Diego and Curious George.
-He has a sweet heart. He loves Bethany. He loves to be the first one in her room when she wakes up. He greets her with a loud Good Mornin’ B! and then they both start giggling.
We are so blessed by Lane. He is truly one of the happiest kids I know. He keeps me laughing(and running). He makes life an adventure! I can’t wait to see what the Lord has planned for his life!
