Avery wants only to play with friends lately. She loves going to her friends’ houses and the other day she cried when we had to go home. I’m currently taking a Hungarian class in the mornings, and she’s been spending the morning at friends’ houses playing. She’s been pretty happy about it.
Avery likes to make up her own songs. She sings the tunes from things she hears and makes up words. My favorite recent composition went to the tune on a signing time video we used to get at the library in Texas. The words she sang were “In my heeeeaaart I have eyeballs. And they’re yeeeeeelllow.” I don’t know where she comes up with this stuff.
I got Avery a preschool workbook while we were in Texas to give her something to do while we’re here. It’s one of those Counting, Letters, Matching books and I was hoping it would give us something to do on rainy days and during the Winter over the next year. She asks to do it everyday. I think it might last until next month, but maybe not. She went through the science section in one day. We’re struggling a little with the numbers, though. Once we got to 9 and 10 we started having some problems. She can count that high but she can’t keep track of what she’s counted and what she hasn’t anymore.
It’s fun to watch Avery grow. She recently had a growth spurt and she’s in a mix of size 4T and 5T clothes. She’s becoming a kid instead of a toddler/baby. She walks like a little kid and moves like a little kid instead of like a toddler. She’s almost four, so this shouldn’t be surprising, but it was anyway. It’s fun to watch her enter the preschool age.
