  • Praying before bed

Firsts & highlights:

  • Going to preschool! Meeting his amazing teachers & making new friends
  • Singing with his class at St John’s for family Liturgy


  • Dressing up like a Fireman for Halloween
  • Family weekend Trip to Oceanside with grandma & grandpa and then ridding the train home
  • Trip to Indio with grandma & grandpa, Danny & Annika (first solo trip without mama!)
  • Obsesses with his “army boy” rain boots
  • Can spell his name (working on writing as well!) and Isaac’s name

Not so favorite:

  • Meat.
  • Bedtime without cuddles.
  • Leaving Grandma and Grandpa’s house


  • If he doesn’t want to do something at that moment his catch phrase is “10 min okay?” Or “no. I do it tomorrow”
  • Moved to the back seat in the mini van in his “Race car” red big boy booster! (I live for the day he is 4&40!!! The buckling in is super fun)
  • He is very into “good/bad” choices and labeling everything so. {Which can include behavior or food…}
  • Often says : “No funny stuff” to Isaac when he is annoyed
  • Likes playing with his Fireman & Police Legos. Conversations I overhear: “And Popo man Silas is going to arrest you for making bad choices. Now you go to jail…”
  • Favorite Foods: In-n-Out burger with extra tomatoes & onions with Frenchfries and  ketsup, Turkey lunch meat rolled up, Fish  (Salmon and Fish Nuggets from Trader Joes) Pancakes, Green Smoothies, Salad,  Quesadillas
