What's New with A.J. - Winter 2014

It has been a while since I have done one of these. Seeing as Amari turns four in just a few short days I thought I would bust one of these bad boys out. I need to make it a priority to document more of our life; I have been slacking! 

- Amari started preschool about a month ago. He goes four days a week and loves it. So far, no drama. He is adjusting to the whole school grind mode.

- He enjoys being Talan's big brother. They wrestle non-stop with each other. The funny thing is that Talan's a hefty little thing and occasionally wins! Amari also finds sport in carrying Talan from room to room. 

- Amari still enjoys sports. I hope to get him into itty bitty soccer or T-ball at the Y this spring. I think his hyper active self would really benefit from organized sports. 

- My big boy loves to sing. He has such a lovely voice and I am not saying that because I am his mama. He currently has a new song favorite which is, "Happy" by Pharrell Williams from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. He gets peeved if I sing along to it when it comes on the radio. 

- His top movies are Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University. We watch those non-stop. 

- Amari is wearing size 4T tops and 5T pants. Kid is tall. I swear I buy him new jeans and pants every couple of months. He also wears a size 9 shoe. I think he is going to be a tall kid when he is older. 

- When Amari grows up, he wants to be a fireman or police officer. He saw a fire truck at school last week and thinks it would be cool to drive the truck and save people. He has a big heart and a lot of empathy for others. 

- Fruit snacks get demolished at our house. He loves them and would eat an entire box in one sitting if I would let him. 

- He thinks farts and burps are hilarious... 

- He loves dancing with his brother. 

- Amari loves music. Sometimes I think it's his life.

- He is currently obsessing over Hulk and Captain America. He sure loves his superheroes! 

- His favorite colors are blue and green. 

- He finds hilarity in the simplest things. He has such a funny sense of humor and a very contagious laugh. 

- One will always find Amari with a smile on his face, unless you tell him no to sweets or he's sick. He has such a precious smile. It melts my heart. 

- Amari is stubborn as hell. He gets that from from me. If he doesn't like something, he makes it know. He will scream at the top of his lungs and throw the worlds biggest tantrums. 

- Sweet boy is afraid of the following: spiders, bugs, fireworks, loud noises. Loud noises are new. He covers his ears and will cry sometimes. I still giggle a little when he screams like a piglet whenever he sees a spider or a bug though. The other day he made me kill a spider in his bean bucket.

- He loves helping me around the house. Usually he makes the messes but lately he likes sweeping, mopping, dusting, and wiping counters down. 

And pretty much that's what's new with A.J. for the past few months... If I missed anything, I'll add it for the next one! ;D
