After a couple months hiatus from my monthly blog circle, I am pleased to be back at it with another letter to my sons.
Sorry it has been a few months since I last wrote to you. The end of summer got really busy with our holidays and work and all that kind of stuff and now that we are nearly a month into Fall, I look back at the great Summer we had this year. Even though I know we did a lot of things, I always feel bad for the things we plan to do and the places we plan to go that never end up materializing. Days and weekends fill up quickly and in one blink the summer is gone.
Luckily this summer we did manage to spend a lot of time outside. Water fights. Water parks. Riding your bikes. The highlight I think is always our trip to Auntie’s house in Fruitvale. The long road trip is always daunting to me, but you guys really do quite well on an 8+ hour car ride. Next years trip will come even sooner and be even more exciting as we will be going to their wedding next time we head there!
Jacob – You have had a great last couple of weeks with your potty training progress! Mommy and Daddy (and Mason too!) are so so proud of you and I know you are proud of yourself too. Your favourite things to do right now are playing with your little characters, animals and cars…making little conversations between them and scenarios. I love overhearing your role-playing, it is so darn cute. Your favourite colour is still red. You aren’t sure what you want to be for Halloween yet, even though you do go back to “Bumble bee!”… that’s what you were last year.
Mason – K’nex and legos are your new “FAVOURITE!” things to play with. I think we finally found something that gets your attention held for hours on end 🙂 I love seeing what kinds of creations you come up with. Last week you were making me a “Super Machine” that cleans up things for me (if only!) and yesterday you made a “lollipop mountain”. I love your imagination. As of yesterday you were still undecided on your Halloween costume as well.
Now that October is here, all I can think about is Halloween, then Christmas, then New Years, then your 4th Birthday! I know there are a few months thrown in there, but all I swear it is going by much too fast.
I love you guys both so much.
Till next month,
Please head on over to LaShawn’s blog to read her letter to her sweet boy 🙂
