What I Learned...

My family and I just spent 7 days in Ocean City, Maryland. We aren't one of those families who does a huge trip. We both have pretty small families. He has one sister and I am an only child, so we enjoy just going down the four of us. Each year, as the boys are one year older, I learn more about them. Nothing like 7 days together to learn a little bit about each other.


He's 4 1/2 and has always been my wild child. He was the kind of baby that had to have everything baby proofed. He walked before he was a year and was jumping off the couch around 13 months. He's stubborn and strong willed and he loves so intensely. He loves people and thinks that everyone wants to be his friend too.

What I learned about him...

Although he is brave, he is fearful. You should have seem him ducking around the clown toy hanging from the prize booth, or the trash can shaped like a panda bear. He was in the pool today and was afraid of the alligator pool float. Things I think are so silly but are so fearful for him. He likes jumping the waves in the ocean and isn't afraid to jump in the pool, but will absolutely FREAK OUT if you suggest that he swim without his floaties.

He has odd tastebuds. He could eat sour patch kids for dinner.every night.

He needs to repeat me to understand my directions. He also hears EVERYTHING you say even if you aren't talking to him.

He likes stuffed animals based on their facial expressions. Small stuffed animals are better than big ones! At the Candy Kitchen, they have these tiny stuffed animals and he would pick them based on if they were happy/sad and if their eyes were sparkly and what color they were.

He's learned phrases like "Nailed it" and "That's Awesome" by playing a car game on the iPad, but only HE can say it. Mom isn't allowed...

He'll smile if you bribe him with ice cream :)
