Yes, we have been very busy lately. The end of the school year is coming quickly and there are a lot of deadlines to keep ahead of. I cannot wait until the end of the year and it can't come any sooner. I have been swamped with report cards and of course my students. Last week, one student could not hold it together to stay in my class for more than one hour each day. She would whistle, kick another student or exit the outside door without my permission. Friday was the best: she went home after ten minutes in my class. What did she do? She did not harm anybody in my class. She pretended to be a baby and stuck her hand in her mouth. Then she would wipe her wet hands onto any surface in the classroom. Gross! The custodian and principal disinfected the classroom right away. I wonder what this week will be.
21 months and 4 weeks
Garrett's lovely staff threw us a baby shower. Well, we just wanted to have a fun dinner with everyone at Pacific Island Grill. They came and enjoyed the food. Then we were showered with lovely girly outfits and accessories. Thank you so much!
The highlight of the evening: Gideon likes to give fist bumps and high fives to different people that he meets. There were two couples getting ready for the prom at the restaurant: a Caucasian girl in a blue dress and an Asian girl in a black sequin dress. Any guesses on whom Gideon would ask for a fist bump? Yup, Asian girl. Gideon was also in the picture of the girl pinning the boutonniere on her date. He was raising his fist for a fist bump.
Gideon also wore his Hawaii shirt that Auntie Jaime gave him to the restaurant. It was a hit!
I cannot believe that Gideon will be two years old in two months! Oh my! The time has flown by and he is growing up to be a big boy. Gideon likes to eat all dairy products. If all else fails, we can always get him to eat cheese or yogurt. He loves to eat "cup o noodles" noodles. I think he likes the saltiness. I know it's not the healthiest, but he asked for more so I gave him some more. He likes to eat corn off the cob. He would take a big bite.
He loves to play with his water table. He would play for hours if he could. He sometimes tries to climb into the water table. I think he thinks it is a portable bathtub since we put some of his bath toys in the water table.
Gideon loves saying the letters when he sees letters on people's shirts or on a box. He also loves to say the letter sounds. At daycare, they watch a video about letters and their sounds. My favorite is when he says "huh, huh" "H".
This past week my staff threw a lovely baby shower for Christine and I. The food was wonderful and the company even better. We were showered with cute girly outfits and baby necessities!
This week's photo: Look at his feet! They are huge! He just started wearing these shoes in February. I think it is almost time for the next size up.
