Getting Ready for Vacation

26 06 2011

So we’re getting ready for our trip to Ocean City – we’re really looking forward to it.  Last year we had so much fun – going out to dinner, to the beach, the boardwalk and the water park!!  Aunt Dawn can’t wait to see you.  It’s been a while since she saw you last.  She’s gonna be so surprised by how you’ve grown and how much you are talking.  I told her to make sure she put away anything that was breakable since you’re the original Dr. Destructo 🙂  She said she’s ready for you – but we’ll see about that!!  We’ve been showing you pictures of her and Uncle Jeff – want to see if you’ll surprise them with saying their names when you see them.

You’re getting really good with repeating things we ask you to say.  Today we practiced saying Auntie for Aunt Dawn.  Daddy kept trying to get you to say Uncle but you’re having a hard time with that one – so I had you practicing Jeff.  It’s fun to hear how you say things.  Like today Nan was asking you to say the names of people from school – and when she said Angelica, you said A-ca-ca.  The way you say good bye is the best, your voice gets high pitched and you wave while you say “bye bye”.

Daddy taught you how to sign “please” so you’ve been doing that a lot.  We’re starting to teach you “thank you” now.  You’ve started telling us when you have a poo poo or pee pee diaper.  You’re an absolute carb junkie.  You love bread, cereal, cookies and crackers.

Here are some pictures since my last post:

Rocking the cool jacket Auntie Dawn got you – it finally fits

I don’t think you have enough toys to play with
