Happy Birthday to Little Monkey Man! He turned four on June 27th, but his mommy is a busy woman! He woke up to the traditional big birthday breakfast and presents. He got a Slip N Slide and a tire swing!He wanted an Angry Birds birthday. I collected some boxes, spray painted a couple of milk cartons, rigged up a "sling shot" and (bit the bullett) bought a stuffed Angry Bird.
He had his yearly check up. He is now 3' 5.5" and weighs 37 lbs 8 oz. This is the first summer since he was one that he doesn't have to wear earplugs in the pool or tub. He goes underwater if he has goggles on. He climbs EVERYTHING. He recognizes his name and four letters. He can count past ten. He hates naps, but on long summer evenings when the kids often end up in bed after nine, they are SO necessary.
4th of July
We puttered around the house doing odd jobs in the morning, went swimming in the early afternoon and we ALL took a late afternoon nap. Later we went to a friend's house to socialize and watch the fireworks from their fabulous second floor balcony. Their porch screamed PHOTO OP at me, so I went ahead and took a few...ok...more than a few.
The sign of a truly great summer for me is a lack of blog posts! I guess this is a good one :o)
