SeptemberWith Tim back in school, it was just Conor and I again for Monday Funday. We try to go somewhere different every week, like Bennett Arboretum in Hines Park...
or Domino's Farms...
or the Hands On Museum.
Fall color this year was really amazing so we went to Tollgate Farm to check it out.
The Plymouth Fire Dept. had an open house and we sat in all the fire trucks.
Conor and I took a trip to Texas to visit Mimi and Grampy, Aunt Kelly, Uncle Jason, and cousins Madeline and Clara. We went to the Dallas Arboretum...
and the Dallas World Aquarium...
and the Ft. Worth Zoo.
Back in Michigan, Conor cheered on runners at the Detroit Marathon. We tried to see dada run but the timing was bad.
For Halloween, Conor was a greaser.
He was a little nervous about proper ToTing procedure at the first couple of houses, but by the third he was warmed up and ready to go. "Trick or Treat! Thank you! Happy Halloween!! Okay, let's go!! I see another light on!"
We hosted our playgroup this month at Gretchen's House. They're all so much more rambunctious this year!
We had a quiet Thanksgiving at home.
The day after Tgives, we went to the Detroit Zoo...
and decorated for Christmas.
In general, this is what the first half of three is like for us-
He loves dinosaurs, animals, emergency vehicles and Thomas the Train.
He is learning to read and write his alphabet and just learned how to spell "C-o-n-o-r."
He likes to lip sync in the car and his favorite pop song is FloRida's "Cry".
He loves to act out scenes from movies and books.
Swimming lessons are going well and he is working on Superman glides and keeping his face in the water.
He likes baking and being a helper.
He is very curious and asks lots of questions.
As of early September, he is completely potty trained.
He is moving into 4T clothes and size 11W shoes.
He still takes a nap in the afternoon and sleeps 9 hours at night.
