John Thomas and the boys at the sitter have really been excited about super heroes for the last few months. More recently, John Thomas has been really excited about dressing up like super heroes. He loves his Spider-Man and Iron Man pyjamas, and now likes to put together whatever he can, to dress up as other super heroes.
We heard about Free Comic Book Day on the radio, and decided we should all go, especially when we heard members of the 501st Legion would be there at The Comic Book Shoppe. When we arrived, they were already outside.
In February our friends from Vermont came up for a visit and we met to take in Winterlude. John Thomas wasn't up for the long skate, so we brought the stroller and took turns pushing him on the ice. He enjoyed the traditional BeaverTail and took in some art.
In April we headed to Vermont to celebrate Easter with our friends. We all had a great time. There were multiple Easter related hunts, lots of play on the trampoline, a campfire with marshmallows, and we even climbed a mountain.
John Thomas has continued to work on his letters. He now recognizes letters in his name, and will remark when he sees a simple sign, "Hey, that letter is in my name!" He was writing his name as JOOTH for a month or two, but is starting to realize there are more letters to John Thomas and sometimes now writes ten letters with some combination of Js, Os, Ts and Hs.
In the last week or so he has started riding the smaller of his two wheeler bicycles without training wheels. He has a little difficulty starting, but is fine once he gets going. Unfortunately we haven't caught any pictures of him in action yet. John Thomas' skating has continued to improve, particularly since he was able to articulate that his skates were being tied too tight.
There was a little performance in John Thomas' class on Friday for Mother's Day. The children sung a couple of songs, and adorned their mother's with multiple gifts.
It's been a great few months. We're all looking forward to a wonderful summer together.
