Leapfrog's Name: Micaiah
Birthday: 2/14
Height and Weight: About 33-34lbs and 38 inches
Clothing and shoe sizes: Mostly 3T and 4T, shoe size 8
Potty training status: I think I can finally say we are potty trained! Rewards are all but gone. He has occasional accidents and is nowhere near night trained but he can pretty much go by himself and wash his hands and everything. The next hurdle is standing up to pee. Why are boys so complicated?
Siblings names and ages: Noel - 18 months
Preschool? When/how often? We are doing some stuff at home for about 30-45 minutes 3x a week. I'd like to add some more to our schedule bit by bit.
Sleep/naps: Sleeps 8-7, naps maybe once a week but almost always has an hour quiet/rest time in his room.
Favorite things to do: Build things, play with his trains and cars.
Favorite tv/show movie: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Lady and the Tramp
What one word best describes your Leapfrog? Friendly. He is always talking to people when we're out and is generally really happy.
Future babies status (TTC/preventing/expecting/done): Preventing although I'm getting baby fever but I know we should wait another year or so before we start trying.
How are YOU? Good! Glad that school is back in session so our days are a bit more scheduled. Sort of open to some part time work where I could take the kids but just haven't found it yet. Involved in two Bible studies, some mom groups and a fitness class so it all keeps me busy!
Future plans: DH isn't content here so we will probably be moving somewhere north in the next few years. I'm getting itchy to really settle in a place we both like and for him to have a better paying job so we can live a bit more comfortably and be able to save more.
