Well I have to say this weekend was pretty perfect.
Friday we got a babysitter for Ethan and went with a few of our friends to George’s for dinner and Bono’s for drinks after. It was nice to have some adult time.
Saturday we grabbed coffee on 2nd, took Ethan to the park and then Ethan and I went to brunch with one of my best friends, and on a long walk, while Jarrod golfed.
Today we went to the Santa Ana Zoo and had a really fun time! Ethan got to ride on the train and he found his new favorite animal, the bald eagle. The Santa Ana Zoo is a pretty small zoo but if you’re with a toddler it’s perfect. There are lots of Monkeys and farm animals that you can feed.
Here’s the latest dish on Ethan.
When we’re in the car listening to music Ethan will get really upset when a song he likes ends. When it ends he starts balling, literally. If you didn’t know better you would think he hurt himself. It took a few times of this happening for us to figure out what was going on.
I also got a phone call from his teacher on Friday that he has been aggressive at school. If he gets angry or frustrated he will hit. If a toy makes him frustrated, he will throw it. If a another child is playing with a toy he wants, he will throw something at them or push them out of the way.
His teacher gave me some suggestions for handling his behavior so that our discipline is consistent with what they are doing at school. Hopefully it’s a phase that will soon end.
I know I just made him sound like a little monster, but he’s really not. He’s got a lot of sweetness in him too. This morning he woke me up by climbing on the bed and over me and giving me a big wet smooch on the lips, then smiling really big. He cracks me up!
This week is pumpkin patch time! Last year we went to the Irvine Railroad but this year we’re keeping it simple and checking out Pa’s Pumpkin Patch in Long Beach. I bought an unlimited rides pass so Ethan should have a really fun time.
On another note, we are going to Napa for our 4 year wedding anniversary and I’ve been sitting at the computer tonight getting so excited looking at all the wineries, restaurants and really just the beauty of Napa itself planning our itinerary. Our trip can’t come soon enough!
Well, off to bed. I’ll try and post some new pics next time, they are way overdo on my blog.
