He likes going to school and occasionally tells us things he's learning, like letter sounds or singing songs. He does love music time and Gymboree. But mostly he loves playing with all the toys. He's more reserved at school, but he loves his two teachers and is not afraid to do some bossing of his friends, or them.
He asks one million times what we're doing today, or the following day, and then a million more if it's time to go ... and then when we get wherever we're going, he's asking when it's time to leave.
He loved our trip to Missouri this fall, especially riding the train at Silver Dollar City. The first day we were there, a tree had fallen across the tracks so we couldn't ride it ... he has talked constantly about that train, the tree and the men who had to fix it since. He and Addie both got carsick (mostly thanks to a winding road), and now pretty much anytime Jordan drives he asks if the road will be especially bumpy or windy.
He loved everything Christmas, too, and was the most magical one to watch this year. He really understood Santa for the first time, and loved looking for our elf each morning. He delighted in both of our Santa encounters, not timid at all. After reading the Polar Express, he kept telling me we needed a new house, needed to move and that he was going to ask Santa for a new house ... finally he explained that because I'd said I didn't think the Polar Express came here that he needed a new house where it would come. He was beside himself when we packed the kids in the car and halfway to Stillwater announced that we were going to ride on the real Polar Express. Of course nearly as soon as we got on the train, he was ready to move on to the next activity.
We celebrated this boy's third birthday several weeks early at the fire station, where he did not scream about the lights this time, thankfully. He loved his party and having his friends there. On his actual birthday, we had a Hideaway pizza lunch with grandparents and lots of presents.
