Milestones: 3 1/2 Years

Next month Levi's officially three and a half. In half a year he's grown in vocabulary, wit and height. Here are the latest facts on our growing preschooler.

Clothes size: 3T/4T(jammies)

Height: 3 ft. 4 in.

Weight: 37 lbs.

Shoe size: 9- still super, duper wide

Favorite thing to do: Listen to music, have books read to him, playing in water/puddles and ANYTHING trains/cars

Favorite toy: Pull-n-go Lighting McQueen and any car or truck

Favorite phrase: One of my favorites is "silly ole me."

Favorite show: Team Umi Zoomi (or so he says even though he's only seen it a few times)

New things: Pacis and games

The last hoorah on the way to sell the pacis.

  • Paci-free! This summer we took a friend's advice and talked to Levi about buying a toy with his pacis. He came to us one morning out of the blue telling us he was ready to sell them in exchange for a new train. We drove that day to a local toy store and have been paci-free ever since. With only a few nights of asking for the paci, Levi went from totally attached to paci-free in a day with Hiro the train to thank for the easy transition.

  • Games! One of our favorite things to do when sitting in the new pavilion or shopping in the grocery store is playing the Hot or Without Game. For the first you say the word hot then take turns adding silly words to it. donut holes, etc. Without involves thinking of two integral parts of something and leaving one out. For example we'd say, "it's like apple trees without apples," "it's like a sky without clouds," etc. I'm amazed at Levi's creativity and knowledge of things that belong together.

Silly moments: This summer when Levi was really sick I'd often ask him how he felt throughout the day especially in the mornings. One morning he said, "That sickness packed it's suitcase and went away." Then at the dinner table the other day he said all by himself, "How has your week been?" Sounds like he's been sitting in on too many RA weekly meetings.  

The end: Since pictures often tell more than words, here are a few more along with a video of Levi's first retelling of a story.

Such a handsome little man. I can't believe he's 3 1/2 already. These blessings grow too quickly.
