Kian’s New Tricks!

Last week was our last week at Gym Kids and we had a make-up class with my favorite teacher (Vicki). At Vicki’s class Kian started to show signs that he’s catching on to things! Every class is pretty much the same – same structure and everything. When we arrive we play on the equipment for about 30 mins and then the teacher rings a bell to let us know it’s “circle time” and all the kids get a bell to ring for a few minutes. In circle time we sing a song that usually has movements, then we do the Big Bird Song which the kids LOVE and has movements, then we get out a parachute and sing songs and do fun things with that, and then we say goodbye with little Gym Kid Clown puppets and sing a song.

Well, last week Kian heard the bell of a second (Vicki rang it a tad early) and ALL the kids stopped in their tracks! It was amazing to see that Kian knew EXACTLY what was going to be next! After that we sang our song and got out the parachute – the kids are invited to go on top of it when we first get it out and Kian immediately jumped on without my prompting!

Then on Saturday Kian started do the movements to the Big Bird Song! One of the song’s parts says “Dance around in a circle” (I spin him in a circle) “we all fall down!” (and we fall to the ground patting the floor with our hands). Well, Kian started turn in a circle himself! So I started to sing the song and next thing I knew he was down on the ground patting the floor! So now he spins in a circle and then pats the floor hehe It’s so CUTE!

Kian will be Blue for Halloween

I bought Kian's costume on ebay for more than half off the retail price! I was really excited and it is very cute! I JUST fits him now so I am hoping he doesn't grow too much so he can wear it for Halloween :)

I thought that we might take him around our Condo are Trick-or-Treating and earlier in the day take him to our friend Erik and Angela's place for some candy.

Although, I don't know what Mr. Allergic-to-Peanuts can have from the candy basket so I will have some Gerber Wagon Wheels for him.

Even so, we will still carry around his Trick-or Treat pumpkin that Great Aunt Lori got him last year. It has his name put on it melting letters - very cool!

New Blog

Well, I decided to start a new blog for more of just my random thoughts and ramblings....it's a little goofy but I think it helps me get out the stuff I have floating in my head throughout the day. Check it out when have some spare time (or maybe you don't and just need to waste it LOL)
