***Please scroll down past this post to answer my baby Question #4!!!***
Bless his heart! You would have thought he had won the lottery when I told him we were gong to do a Letter of the Week! It had been A MONTH sense we had done one…birthday, Easter, Nash’s room, etc. just got in the way! But, better late than never! I’ve OBVIOUSLY come to grips with the fact that we are going to get NO WHERE NEAR all 26 letters before Nash’s arrival! But, as Mammer said, “the letters will still be there after he’s born!” is for
We started the week with his special H lunch! He seriously would do flips if he could when I tell him he’s getting a “special lunch!” It’s so cute! And, I had fun making this one…
…and my favorite…the happy face with silly hair and a hat! And, let’s just say, this boy was HUNGRY! Look at his plate after the meal! WOW! It made a mommy VERY happy! Our song/book by Frog Street Press this week was Hippo Hop…It drove Matt nuts! It is kind of an obnoxious song, but Quinn LOVES it!
The word hullaballoo was the part that annoyed Matt the most…and the fact that they say “hoochie, coochie, coo!” Even though we could easily guess the definition of “hullabaloo,” we honestly weren’t sure! So, I looked it up…
a clamorous noise or disturbance; uproar.
Seriously, I don’t think it’s a good thing like this song portrays!?Q did a little “H” search page! He was so proud of himself when he finished!!!Mid week, Daddy took Quinn on a “Dude Date” to the “XC Dallas” (in Quinn’s words) game! Since Daddy is playing soccer and Q is SO into it, Matt knew they would have a great time! I snapped these pictures before they left. Aren’t they so handsome!!! When they got there, the camera I packed him was out of battery! SO SAD! So, he got this one picture with his phone. It’s of them with Martellus Bennett from the Dallas Cowboys! Sadly, I had no idea who he was when Matt excitedly called me to tell me about it! But, cool, none-the-less!
Matt and Quinn both let me know that they had a great time at the game! Quinn was mesmerized by the game and by how far they could kick the ball! He also loved the FC Dallas mascot, Hooper! He got his own to bring home! Perfect for H week! And, he’s slept with him every night and nap since! While running around, Matt picked up this High Flying Glider for Quinn. Quinn quickly found the H on the package and was SUPER excited to try it out one morning with his Daddy. We did our H art activity…and Quinn put together the H this time! He did great!… Then, he chose red to stamp his hand all over the H. He thought it looked like Spider-Man’s hand! His imagination kills me! After going to check on Nash at the doctor and hearing a super strong heartbeat, the three of us headed to the hospital where Nash will be born. We showed Quinn around and talked about what was to come! He loved visiting the “h place.” We read lots of books that started with H this week. This was the favorite……and it always included singing and doing the dance!!! Gotta love the Hokey Pokey!
One morning, Q and I went through old magazine and looked for H’s and pictures of things that started with H. I really tried to let him do it by himself and he did GREAT! After we cut them all out, he glued them on his page! We’ll do this activity again with other letters, for sure!
And, for the grand finale of H week, I made a little hamburger snack for my sweet love! Is it not the cutest thing EVER!?!… I used Nilla Wafers, a peppermint patty, green grapes and softened starbursts for the ketchup and mustard! It was a HIT!!!…
And, my super happy boy enjoyed every bite!!!
