Zach seems to learn new words every day and he pronounces some of them very clearly. Although I wanted to be Grandma, he prefers “Mamama” so sometimes I will call myself “Grandmama.” I’ll be happy with whatever it eventually morphs into.
We planned on getting this table and chairs for Zach’s birthday, but decided not wait and I’m glad we didn’t. This set by Stakmore is the child version of the set we had we were first married. We still have it – it has stood the test of time. From the first day, Zach enjoyed the table and we moved the blocks from our living room coffee table which was beginning to get scratched to his new table in the family room. The padded seats are really comfy - for Grandma and for Zach. We leave the letters scrambled and he takes them one at a time, says what it is and hands it to me. Then I put them in an organized form like this picture. Zach loves doing this at his table and I am still in awe that he knows the letters. He is only 22 months old!
Another present that was supposed to be for his birthday was a big boy mattress, but that couldn’t wait either and so Zach has been sleeping comfortably on his new mattress for the last couple of nights. I’ll write about that next week.
For now – Please enjoy your Easter or Passover holiday. All of us will be at my cousins’ family for Easter which has been our tradition. Zach is sure to amaze some family members who haven’t seen him for a long time. He amazes me and I see him all the time. Do you have a favorite holiday tradition or recipe? Please share it with us in the comments.
