Goodness. 3 and a half. #BabyCressman is long gone and we surely have a little boy. These past few months have been pretty rough. Scott was super busy, I was finishing school, and we were dealing with a pretty big daycare issue. While I don't want to get into all of that, preschool discussions were always on my mind and search history. We have settled on an early preschool and have made a comfortable decision, but I still have to remind myself that I am looking at schools, not caregivers. Despite it feeling good to put my academic career to good use, it is crazy to think he will be walking in to the same school that houses much bigger kids. I know he'll do great, though... so I'm trying to wear my "tough momma" pants proudly.
This kid is quite the ham. Here's the Nolie rundown.
Likes: bugs, sand, automobiles, cookies, mommy's school, "summertime" (said as emphatic as possible), playing in water any chance he can get, and his friends.
Dislikes: not having control, leaving anywhere empty-handed, going to bed before it is dark, and stopping to eat.
These past 6 months have been spent learning letter sounds, completing a "soccer" season (trust me, 3 year old soccer deserves quotes), swim lessons, and traveling southeast Michigan (Oh! And a plane trip to DC). His need for control causes some pretty epic meltdowns when he is approaching nap/bed time, but i try to
grit my teeth or hide under the table smile while getting him through it.
He makes a great 'little brother' to Orie and Floyd (pestering, chasing, and too-tight hugs make a good little brother, right?). He can build like a champ and enjoys flying spaceships with daddy. All in all, I'd classify him as a pretty cool kid, just like mom.
