This week Erica at Nannypology tagged me to participate in the ABCs blog challenge. To show her that I’m not too cool for school, I’m going to change it up a bit. Her post had a list of questions. I’m just going to free form it and use each letter of the alphabet to write something about my adventures with Ale.
In stead of tagging another person, I want to invite anybody who would like to take part in this challenge. Just link your blog post in the comment section below. Maybe I’ll discover a new blog or two. Better yet, I’ll learn more about the wonderful ones I currently follow.
Here we go!
C- Cat – meow! The ground floor apartment had two cats that would hang out in the window. Ale and all of the kids that passed by would go crazy when they saw the cats. The cats sadly have moved to California! I really hope the new neighbors will have a cat.
D- Dance Party! I try to have a dance party each day with Ale. Shake it up!
E- ENERGY! Ale is not a big eater but he so much energy. The boy is in constant motion.
F- Food– It’s a struggle. This week he is eating so I’m a happy mama.
G- GREEN! I am still buying many green things for Ale and myself. I don’t do it on purpose. Next thing I know we are outside and we look like frogs.
H- HELLO! Ale does not say this yet. I tell people that Bye! Bye! is his universal greeting.
I- ICE CREAM– Mama its too cold! Wait, give me some more of that!
J- JUMP!– Before he could walk Ale could jump. Jumping on the bed and sofa is the best thing now. So many giggles. Then I have to remember I’m a mom and tell to him to stop 😦
K- Kuddles- (I know this word starts with a c- but I can’t think of anything with a K!) Ale is constantly moving but he does stop for a second to run up to me and give me a quick (k)cuddle. So sweet!
L- LOVE- I love, love, love this little boy.
M- MONKEY! All of a sudden if you tell Ale that he is a little monkey he will start imitating a chimp. It’s so funny. He must have learned this in daycare.
N- NAP! This gives me two hours to get stuff done.
O- Orange Juice is the only juice the little man will drink.
P- PAPA! Ale loves to whisper in my ear “Papa” and point to him when he is near.
Q- QUIET! Not at my home. Yesterday, while I was making dinner, I gave Ale a pot and a wooden spoon. My husband had the pot lids and they were making some serious music. I added the hand claps and Ale started “singing”. Sorry neighbors!
R- RUN! Running after a little toddler can’t get any better than this.
S- Summer! We are having so much fun so far. The playground with water features is fantastic. Looking forward to BBQs, vacations, and the beach!
T- TALK!- Ale now has close to 20 words but is still not talking yet. The words come out in bursts and then seem to disappear. His new word is “here”. This is when he wants to watch TV. He hands me the remote and says “Here”.
U- Unique! I like to think that Ale is unique in all that he does. However, he is doing what all healthy 19 month olds are doing. I will challenge you that he does them the cutest! 😉
V- VELCRO! Shoes come off way too easily.
W- Walk! Ale sometimes now wants to be out of the stroller when we are out and about. He loves to walk all by himself down the street. But does not yet understand that he has to stop at the corner to cross. This is a struggle, literally as he squirms to let go of my hand at each corner.
X- XYLOPHONE! Of course Ale loves to use this!
Its musical and colorful. Most of all it has two sticks to bang with.
Y- YES! Not a word yet in Ale’s vocab. If he wants to respond yes, he smiles and jumps.
Z- ZZZZZZZ! Have you fallen asleep? You’ve made it to the end of the alphabet. Give it a try! Add your post to the comments section. Have fun!
