Levi is out of pull-ups

He's had two dry nights in a row and, all though I'm sure there will be accidents, I'm thrilled. He's doing really well in the daytime, too, so I've decided to consider the potty "training" stage complete. Anything after this we'll just consider an accident and move on. He's officially a big boy! I can't believe my baby is already three and not any sort of baby anymore - unless he's playing baby when he needs a little extra time on my lap:) Where has the time gone?

Plans for our preschool-at-home

Levi and I are ready to get back in the swing of things now that the holidays are over so we'll be starting "preschool" back next week. I've planned a new unit for us -we'll be reading a different book each week and doing activities that go along with the book. The books we're planning to read are: If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, The Little Red Hen, Goodnight Moon, Curious George, and Where the Wild Things Are. Some of our activities will include baking "mouse-sized" cookies to count and add/subtract (by eating, of course!), discussing opposites w/ Curious George, having a "wild rumpus," and baking - and sharing - bread. If anyone has any ideas for activities, I'd love to hear them.
