Happy Father’s Day, Jon!
Alison is more affectionate, and we are cherishing every moment! She offers hugs and kisses, she likes to cuddle with daddy, she likes to sit on mommy’s lap during story time, and she likes to have both mommy and daddy hold her hand while walking on the street.
Alison is aware she is growing up. She wants to mimic us. Here’s her daddy impression:
And here’s her mommy impression:
She is more playful with her stuffed animals. She likes to give her doggie lots of hugs, put her bunny to bed, and offer her milk/water to all her stuffed animals (Eeyore, doggie, horse, alligator, etc.)
We are noticing that Alison is becoming a little hoarder. She likes to collect many items and stash them in her bag, her bed, her toy bee hamper, or her tent.
Alison wants to be helpful – she likes putting utensils away, doesn’t mind scrubbing the floor, and also likes to clean up her room when we ask her to. Hopefully this trend will continue as she gets older!
She is speaking in 2-3 word sentences:
DIFFICULTIES we are facing
We took Alison to Gilroy Gardens, an amusement park for little kids. This was Alison’s first solo ride!
She had a lot of fun visiting daddy at work. Crayons and playdoh can keep her busy.
They even let her draw on the floor..
Over the weekend, she enjoyed playing on a decorated piano with daddy at the local farmers market.
Daddy also taught her how to kick a ball.
