Darn Wasps...

Poor AJ got his first (and second) wasp stings yesterday! I wasn't there, but from what I am told, he and Papa were outside in the backyard feeding the birds and 2 wasps came up and got him! He got stung on the back of his arm and as expected, it hurt! He cried for a while, but Mamna washed it and put some cortisone cream on it and he was fine. No allergic reaction and he forgot about it pretty quickly. I was so sad for him, and sad that I wasn't there, but I am thankful that Mamna and Papa were there to comfort him and take care of him.

More Funny Things He Says...

Oh boy- AJ has become quite the talker lately! He is ALWAYS saying something. Most of the time it makes sense too!

Here's a few funny things that I don't want to forget...

* I was driving to the park the other day and all of the sudden I hear him say, "What are you doing Mommy?" hahah! He's been asking me that a lot lately. I'll be making dinner, or in my closet trying to figure out what to wear that day, or pretty much anything and he'll ask me. I think it's hilarious! And I love that he's interested.

* He is Mr. Manners. I'd say 70% of the time when I give him something (milk, crackers, whatever...) he says, 'Thank you Mommy". It sounds like "Hate you Mommy" but it's not that at all. He is very sincere :)

* AJ is at the age where he's starting to sing songs that are familiar to him. It's hard to describe, and he typically won't do it on camera- but he will sing certain parts of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Bingo (which he calls NGO) and other songs. I'm trying to get it recorded.

* I'm teaching AJ his real, full name. He can say Anderson James very well. Last night I tried to get him to say Lewicki and he said "Uwookie"- haha! It was adorable! Lewicki is a tough name for many people to pronounce, so I think he did pretty well for his first try!

* Each morning when he wakes up, he lays in his crib and yells for me... This is what I hear.. "Mom! Mommy! Mama! Kate! Mama Kate! Katie!" haha!

Park Day!

AJ and I went back to Civic Green Park today. We didn't get a lot of time there last week and found out later we missed the best part!

There's this HUGE playground with all kinds of fun things to climb on and right next to it is this awesome stream that the kids can play in. It's amazing! It was so hot today (mid-90's) so the water felt awesome and AJ had a blast climbing over the rocks and sitting in the "waterfalls". We will definitely be visiting this park a lot. It's so beautiful and a great place to hang out all day. Here's a few pictures from today.
