I take a lot of photos with my phone and then forget about them. Here are a few pictures that capture some of the things we've been up to this month so far!
Andrew celebrated his birthday at preschool. They saved the celebration for the day when I was volunteering. He got sung to and got to bring the "birthday bear" home. He loved getting to snuggle with it at nighttime and Catie loved it too!
My neighbor Sahar wrote a children's book called Lili's Strawberry House. She did an author reading at Studio Grow on March 2nd for Read Across America Day, so we went and participated! The kids made a little craft and learned about the book.
Andrew also celebrated Dr. Seuss's Birthday at preschool. After this picture was taken, Caitlin confiscated the hat and wore it for days afterwards. She really wishes she could go to preschool!
One of the kids at preschool had a gymnastic birthday party. Andrew was excited because two of his best buds were there. They had a blast and so did the moms (who just sat in the lobby and chatted the whole party).
He said it was the best birthday in the whole world!
Catie is done taking morning naps, so we have lots of time to spend together while Andrew is at preschool now. We run errands, work out, and do lots of playing. She is also awesome at helping me with chores.
She loves to pull all the clothes out of the drawers after I put them away :)
Catie also spends a lot of time in this position (both at preschool and Andrew's sports skills class). She waits and watches and actually is a really good sport just hanging out while we drive Andrew from place to place.
When he's at sports skills class she'll run around the lobby when they play music and loves to watch the kids work out. She also just sits in the chair next to me and watches Sesame Street on my phone. She is my favorite little buddy.
Last Friday during the pouring rain my friend invited me to venture up to Berkeley with her to go to Habitot, a children's discovery museum. It was psychotically crowded, but the kids had a lot of fun.
Catie had a little buddy her age and Andrew had a buddy his age and their favorite spot was pretending to work at the space station and drive the rocket.
They also loved drawing on their faces with water/crayons to do face painting. I made Catie into a kitty and she loved it... and tried to draw more on her face.
Andrew and his buddy Jed just drew whatever they wanted on their faces and it was really funny.
This week we had a family date to Baskin & Robbins. Shari gave Andrew gift certificates to ice cream for his birthday... so it was about time we used them!
Both kids kept us thoroughly entertained the whole time... especially Catie who wanted everyone's ice cream and wanted to feed herself! Andrew was awesome at sharing and she loved having him feed her too (though he dropped a lot in her lap!)
It has been a busy and very fun month so far!
