Counting M&Ms for Math time

Counting M&Ms for Math time

For this math exercise we did 20 M&Ms. He counted them all together, nurse counted them according to color, subtracted one (ate one), and then counted them all again. I ran through all the possible combinations with him. He really enjoys math time.

I love how much he wants to learn!

"I love math, Mommy!"

He’s started coloring pictures that look like the actual items we’d see with our own eyes. Even Captain Kirk has a face with a smile. Can you guess what the picture below is?

Can you guess what it is? It's a "hot dog".

Being a kid is hard work. Learning constantly, while playing in the sand box or even pretending Star Trek, tires a little man out.

A little visitor. The first one we've seen all year. :)

We went to the mall on Sunday afternoon hoping to take Neylan to the carnival. Poor little man was too short for the rides; we took him around the mall to make up for it.

Our first of many hats.

A horribly blurred picture of hat number 2. I wouldn't have shared this one... but his excitement is unmistakable.

Neylan also had his 3 year check up recently! He’s officially healthy. Blood pressure is fine, he’s on a good dosage of antibiotics, and according to his blood tests lead and anemia are not a problem. He’s 27 lb. and 36 in. tall.

And here’s another first for my sweet boy. He’s coloring inside the lines.  (October 1,2013)

Beautiful!

There should be a scientific law that when you turn the camera on for children they change what they are doing and start acting silly.


He’s also had a blast “reading” me his version of the books I’ve read to him. 🙂 Here’s the Very Hungry Caterpillar written by Eric Carle. I had to cut it into 2 videos because my phone wouldn’t send it all as one. At least I have this for later. It’s so sweet.


That “pizza” is a piece of pie and the “candy cane” is actually a sausage. That’s what makes this video so magical to me; he’s using his imagination.


And that’s the awesome end of the book. 🙂

My child gives me many laughs. I’m so thankful for him, and I’m so thankful for a place I can share him with others and keep these memories.
