What's New with A.J. - The Month of May

Between packing for our big move south, pregnancy exhaustion, and work I almost for got to post this for May. A lot has been happening this month but most importantly I want to focus on my sweet little prince and what's new with him these days. I may have missed a few things but that's okay. I always do.

- Amari loves, loves, loves himself some baseball. He has become a baseball junkie even though he has no idea what the game is really about. Daddy got him hooked on playing ball on the Wii and when the Mariner's play he will sit contently on the couch and will watch the game. He will even throw his little arms up in the air and proclaim loudly, "Home run," when one of the players hits one. He has baseball on the brain 24/7 these days and he is only two!

- His favorite superheroes are Batman and Spiderman. He loves watching the classic 1981 show, "The Amazing Spiderman" on Netflix's.

- When any sports related event is on T.V. his big brown eyes are glued on the screen. I know for a fact that I have a little athlete on my hands and I cannot wait until he is old enough to play T-ball and itty-bitty basketball at the YMCA.

- He knows who the rapper Two Chainz is... =/ He even named the stuffed Bulldog that Daddy won him a few weeks back, Two Chainz. When we're in the car, he'll ask to hear Two Chainz.

- Cookies and apple juice are his two favorite things to eat. He thinks he deserves cookies and apple juice on a daily basis, of course, he doesn't get them and he throws a huge fit!

- Amari knows what fast food restaurant carries French fries. When he sees the golden arches he'll yell, "Fries! Fries please?"

- Hot dog pizza is his latest meal request next to Elmo pizza. Please don't ask! I have no idea where he gets these ideas from. Bless his little heart. I truly believe that he thinks he can get hot dogs on pizza for dinner.

- His new favorite show is the Backyardigans. Sesame Street and Sid the Science Kid are still two of his favorite shows though. You can also throw in King of the Hill no thanks to Trevor! Amari likes the theme song and Hank Hill of all people.

- Every color he sees is red. Red apparently is his favorite color.

- Swimming pools and lakes are baths. :]

- The moon is still his favorite thing to look at when the sun sets and the stars come out.

- He loves elephants, fish, and sea turtles.

- Amari is no longer afraid to pet cats anymore. He conquered that fear by petting Grandma's cat Whisker's on Tuesday.

- He has discovered that he likes to take his pants and diaper off. =/ One afternoon I caught him half naked in his bed and he peed on his sheets. He found it funny, too bad I didn't! I am hoping that he doesn't discover that he likes being naked all the time.

- He calls me by my first name now. =( Randomly he will say, "Hi Tasha. How are you?" I have to remind him that he is to call me Mommy and not Tasha.

- His favorite saying now is, "Justa minute!" He is not shy about saying it either. ;]

- He is still afraid of bugs. You can also add in frogs. He was terrified of the little green frog that visited us one day.

- He tries to help out in any way that he can. He is even learning how to fold his own laundry! About time right? :] You know I'm stoked about that! Now if only he could learn to put his shirts on his hangers and hang them up in the closet. =P

And pretty much that is what's new with A.J. for this month.
