You are obsessed with trains, planes, buses, cars, motorcycles and dinosaurs right now. You love to watch Thomas the Train on TV, point out every plane in the sky, put your hand up to your ear if you hear a train passing by, and point out every bus and car that you see on the road. After you see a plane or bus, you always ask for more as if I could just summon more planes or buses to pass by. You also like the song "The Wheels on the Bus" and will watch every video on YouTube that has been created for this song (same with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star).
Technology is a huge part of your life. It is amazing to see how easy it is for you to navigate an iPhone or iPad and play videos on YouTube. I can tell it is going to be a struggle to balance playing outside, reading books, and playing sports with watching TV, playing games on my phone and watching videos on Daddy's computer.
You love for your dad to get on the floor and throw pitches for you to swing at. You can say "Strike one, strike two, strike three, you're out!" You also love shooting baskets. I can't wait until you are old enough so that we can take you to the tennis courts and teach you to play tennis.
You are still very friendly. When we pass people on the street during our walks, or pass people in the store, you are always eager to wave at them and say "hi". It makes others so happy. You love to say "Who's that?" or "What's that?" You want to know everyone's name and the name of every object on earth. You are learning so much. You are also very good at saying "thank you." You say it so often now, I rarely have to prompt you to say it. I love that you have good manners! Now if I can just get you to say "excuse me".
