Alyssa is now 3 1/2 where has the time gone? She's an amazing kid and a lot of fun to be around. She is definately in her terrifying threes. She's extreamly opionated and stubborn, which comes from Trav and I in spades- haha. I have some really interesting conversations with her now about things that she thinks about and her imagination games, no imaginary friends but that may come.
She is loving preschool and talks about all the games and things she plays. Still no friends she plays with, the teachers tell me she shares but she's really quiet and they've asked me if she's enjoying school. One of her teachers Miss Monika told me how they were doing their fire drill one afternoon and all the kids were told to not get their jackets as it was important to head straight outside in an emergency. Miss Monika said Aly was listening too well because she took off her hoodie that she had worn over her tshirt so she could leave it behind in the classroom. Miss Monika thought it was so adorable but explained to Aly after that they meant the kids big jackets that they hang up and if she was already wearing a hoodie or sweater she could just keep it on. I hope that she gets more friendly with some of the other kids, I may try to do a playdate every couple of weeks to help her become more familiar with her classmates. We'll see. We're happy that she is loving it so much and she'll get more chatty with others in her own time :)
Alyssa's favorite books right now are Fancy Nancy- about a little girl who likes things to be fancy and uses big fancy words. I got her the two newest books as a surprise to read on the plane in a couple of weeks. She also loves Jillian Jiggs, Curious George, Dr. Seuss, Scaredy Squirrel, Dora, and Franklin. Favorite shows right now are of course Dora and Diego, Strawberry Shortcake and Franny's Feet- about a little girl who tries on different shoes and travels to different places and times.
