Oh baby, it's been a month since I wrote an update! Time flies. I guess that means there isn't any major news to share either.
We are enjoying the nice weather when we get it. Andrew loves being outside and would stay out all day if he could. They do spend a lot of time outside at daycare. They have a really neat playground, lots of outdoor toys and a huge sandbox. We have gotten a few reports about Andrew loving to shoot the ball in the basketball hoop and going on rides in the bye-bye buggy. He also really likes the music room. They must sing the song “The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round” because if I sing it to him, he does some actions and gets a huge smile on his face.
Andrew is officially obsessed with balls. He will see a ball and say ball over and over. He thinks of balls when he wakes up in the morning and he associates ball with driving into the garage because there are two basketballs on the shelf. He also like dogs and is always pointing to go and look over the neighbor's fence to see if their dog Bell is outside. Neighbor Tom brought Bell over one day and I think she was a little bigger than Andrew thought. He was hanging on to my shirt for dear life when we tried to get him to pet Bell. He makes the same sound every time he sees a dog. It's definitely not "puppy" or "dog." We think it might be his version of "woof."
It was cold last weekend, but we still watched the Fargo Marathon come right by our house. Mile 1 was at the end of the block as it was last year, and miles 12 and 24 came down our street. It is an amazing sight to see.
NDSU baseball season is winding down for Ryan. This is their last weekend of home games for the year. NDSU graduation is this weekend, too, which means our daycare hours are switching to the summer schedule next week. They will be closing at 4:30 pm instead of 5:30 pm which could be challenging at times as Ryan is still planning to umpire quite a few games this summer. Luckily, we can always count on Grandpa Peter and Grandma Teresa to be home. You never know, Andy could be making pizzas by the end of the summer. They say that Ryan was making them at 5 years old, so now the bar is set. I’m still in awe when I watch them whip a pie together – especially how they make those fancy edges on the crust.
We have a pretty good bedtime routine down now. Andrew lays down awake and falls asleep on his own. We are still waiting for him to consistently sleep through the night every night. He will do it one night, but not the next.
We don’t have too much planned for the summer this year. So far we are expecting a visit from Grandma Connie and Grandpa Dave the end of June and July should bring some new cousins to meet.
