Some big things have been happening around here. Our little baby headed to preschool last week. When I went back to work a year and a half ago, the most amazing person watched Caleb for us which was such an answer to prayer. But now the little guy is finally old enough for our church’s preschool and is dying to be around other kiddos. So off to preschool he went! Which made me realize that it was beyond time for a Caleb update! To see past Caleb updates, see all about the two’s and all about the one’s.
For his first week of school, I thought it would be fun to ask him questions and then see how his answers change every year. He’s not quite 3 yet (Next month! What?!) so I wasn’t really sure how it would go, but it did not disappoint.
What is your favorite color? Umm… grey.
What is your favorite food? Yogurt raisins
Who is your best friend? Maddie Moo
What is your favorite thing to play with? Dylan… Is that my cousin?
What is your favorite animal? Zebras. Hey! We went to the zoo to see the zebras and see ALL the animals!
What is your favorite movie? Veggie Tales
What is your favorite book? ABC book with the apple in it and the girl on it and the umbrella
What do you want to be when you grow up? Uhhhhh….. Like you. Yes I want to be like you.
Who is your favorite person? Mommy
What is your favorite toy? My horse JoJo got me.
This guy loved this ‘game’ and wanted me to continue to ask him a million questions. And I promise I didn’t persuade him to choose me on those answers! Daddy was in the other room so I’m thinking out of sight, out of mind. 😉
This guy is FULL of energy. Sitting still and watching a movie is not his jam AT ALL. He wants to be playing and talking. At all times. He still has so many words. And questions. About everything.
He loves to sing and dance. Some of his favorite songs right now is Wheels on the Bus, Lift Your Head by David Crowder, and he can always go for some Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars. Safe to say the kid likes a wide variety of jams. And he wants the volume UP. I don’t think I’ve listened to the radio this loud since I was in high school and thought it was cool to possibly bust out my ear drums. Apparently the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…
He loves to know how everyone is doing and sounds like such a little grown up sometimes. He will ask ‘Mommy, how did you sleep?’ and ‘Tell me bout your day’ and ‘How are you feeling? Not super great?’ And he expects answers. 😉
He loves to be out and about and going places. He’s always asking where we are going that day and often cries when we leave places because he wants to stay. We are the kid at drop off that runs in excited but cries at pick up because we don’t want to go home. Extrovert much?
He also LOVES a party. The good thing is that anything can really suffice as a ‘party’ to him if it includes at least one person outside of mommy & daddy. Right now he keeps asking for a party at his house just like Mrs. Lauri (because we just attended her son’s going away party at her house). He saw that tons of people came to her house and he wants in on that action. Good thing his birthday is coming up. 🙂
He is LOVING preschool. He tells me all about circle time, the colors and shapes they are learning about, and how Mrs. Paulette says to ‘zip your mouths.’ He also explained that in circle time, you can sit criss cross applesauce or legs out straight. He sits legs out straight because he tried criss cross applesauce and he just can’t do it. (This is all him reporting this.) Preschool is only 9-12 so he stays for extended day until 3 since I am at work. Let’s just say that we are still getting used to the whole no nap thing on those days. We are definitely nowhere near dropping a nap by evidence of these past 2 weeks. Little Mr. Extrovert NEEDS his rest to recharge.
We are praying for a great year for our little guy and so excited that he is in the same building as us! We can’t wait to see all the ways he will grow and learn this year. Our little baby is about to be 3 years old on October 1st so apparently he’s determined to keep growing up…
