Everett at almost 3.5

Everett is potty trained!  Woohoo!  Winter was a great time to attack that one.

Right now I'm hearing him sing along with a song about the letter B.  His memory is fantastic and is starting to recite books he's heard over and over, can sing along with songs, and is starting to learn how to spell things.  He is very curious about spelling and letter sounds. 

It is also so fun to see him really delve into a topic.  I got him a book recently about germs and how our body fights them from the magic schoolbus series.  We have read that book at least 50 times since we got it last week.  He can identify red blood cells, white blood cells, antibodies, and germs and has a rudimentary understanding of them!  I will definitely be getting more books from this series!  Amazing!

I already mentioned my two favorite words of his - "hamburgerger" and "speakeret" (secret).  He talks so much now I can barely remember when he couldn't.  His imagination runs wild, and he comes up with some pretty funny and inventive scenarios lately.  There are three other three year olds on this cul-de-sac, and it is amazing and hilarious to watch what they all come up with together.  These four friends are often found riding their bikes around the cul-de-sac together, screaming (usually) with glee, with Pax trailing behind them (and practically keeping up by now).

Here are some pictures from last week.

Everett wasn't really sad.  I told him to smile, and well, you know how three-year-olds are.  The neighbors' preschool calls them the defiant screamers, and that's pretty spot on. ;)
