Nana and Poppy's Visit

Nana and Poppy came to visit us last week! I had not seen them since Christmas, so I had to show them all that I can do now.
I was trying to show them my golf prowess (as Daddy already has me out practicing), but it was a little tricky being that I don't have the correct set of clubs. You would think that since Daddy is a club maker he could at least hook me up with left-handed clubs.

I am getting very good at navigating our steep and uneven yard and am becoming a super stick picker-upper! I loved hearing Nana and Poppy read to me, and I showed them how I read, too. "The Mitten" and Curious George books are real hits with me.

I had my friend Marika and her mom, Helene, over one day to show Nana and Poppy I can share (usually). I got to show Marika my slide, too.
My construction abilities are improving, too. Maybe I can help Daddy and GranPops finish off the basement in April!

We went to the Lutz Children's Museum one day, and I had a ball riding the pony and saying, "Neeeiiiiigggghhhh!"
The big ship at the museum was fun to climb on and pretend I was driving the boat. However, I preferred blowing the fog horn (the button in my right hand).

Nana helped me go "fishing" from the top of the ship. All in all, I really enjoyed having them here. I miss them! The next time I see them, I'll be a big brother!!!

You are probably wondering how I am doing with the "going to be a big brother" thing. Mommy and Daddy keep telling me there is a baby in Mommy's belly and I have even kissed her belly a few times, but I'm not really sure what that means. They also said I will be getting a big boy bed soon, and Daddy is painting it this weekend. We have a few books about Mommy having a baby inside her and what it will be like when the baby comes out. I guess I'll just wait and see what all this is about.

Speaking of ships, GranPops just sent me this hand-carved boat to play with in the bath tub. He is good!!!

Happy March!

Wow Braeden, I bet you are very excited about being a big brother. I think you will love it! Every time I see a baby I tell mommy that I want to hold it. They are just so cute. Maybe some day I will be a big sister and we can compare notes. Hopefully we can get together this summer and play!
Love, Lexie
