My first top front tooth fell out!

I'm so excited, and Mommy and Daddy can hardly believe it.  The tooth that Daddy and I "loosened" a few days ago came out!  I think it's so fun that I'm losing my teeth, I can't wait for the next one (and two more are loose enough already).

Crazy hair day!

Every day this week we've had a different "crazy" theme at school.  One day was "crazy sock" day, one was "inside-out" day, and one day was "pajama day" (which I was really excited about and sang about it being pajama day for days beforehand)!  But today was "crazy hair" day!  I asked Mommy to make my hair super crazy, and she sure did!

Yay, another wiggly tooth!

I'm so excited, I have another wiggly tooth!  It's my right front tooth, and it was a little loose already, but today Daddy and I were playing and loosened it up a lot more.  He was on the couch and I bent over to tell him something right as he was moving his knee to get up, and sure enough, my chin and his knee met!  It sure loosened up that tooth, and there was even some blood.  But once I realized that meant I was going to lose another tooth even sooner that I would have normally, I thought it was pretty great!

I don't think it's going to hang in there very much longer!

Field Trip to Carriage Ridge Farm

Guess what my class did today at school!  We went on a field trip to a farm that was built in the late 1800s and has been restored.  They still plow the fields using horses rather than a tractor!  Guess what was even better!  Mommy volunteered to be one of the chaperones and she came with us!

On the way to Carriage Ridge Farm one of my teachers, "crazy haired" Ms. Michelle, decided we should sing the whole way there to entertain the bus driver.  I could tell he LOVED hearing us sing in our outdoor voices.  We started with "The Wheels on the Bus Go 'round and 'round".  Mommy was so impressed with all the new verses Ms. Michelle came up with.  (Well, I don't know if Ms. Michelle wrote all the verses, but Mommy said she'd never heard them before.)  Here my friend Avery and I are doing the "'round and 'round" hand motions with the song.

As soon as we got off the bus and saw all those green lawns, we had to get some wiggles out.  Do you know how fun it is to hold hands and spin in circles really fast?  Avery and I got pretty dizzy!

Because both the "A-14 Red and Yellow Groups" were on the field trip, we divided into our separate groups so we wouldn't overcrowd the exhibits.  Here I am with my yellow group.  My teachers, Ms. Natalie (far left) and Ms. Carla (next to me) were having a great time trying to count all the sheep in the field that we were looking at.

Did you know eggs come from chickens?  I knew that.  What I didn't know before this visit was how stinky a hen house can be!  

All too soon the field trip and lunch were over.  But we ran around and played as much as we could before the bus driver came back for us.  Did you know that Mommy gets scared over the silliest things?  I don't know why she was worried about me running along this seating area.  Just because one or two boys tripped and fell off didn't mean I was going to do the same thing.  (I know Daddy wouldn't have been scared!)

Mommy was able to come with my class today because she was on leave.  She told me when she retires next year she'll be able to volunteer for lots of class field trips.  I can't wait!

Doolittle Raiders reunion B-25s

This morning on the way in to school and work, Daddy and I got a special treat!  To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the "Doolittle Tokyo Raiders", a reunion being held here at Wright-Patterson AFB, somewhere around 25 World War II-era B-25s were supposed to all arrive at the same time to one of the closed runways.  And it just so happened that the first one was arriving right as we got to the gate!  Daddy had known they were arriving today, but not exactly when they would actually show up.  So we pulled off to the side of the road (along with many others) and got great "seats".

There was a steady stream of B-25s landing one after the one, less than a minute apart.  it was pretty impressive!

I said we got great seats!  Daddy had to make sure to tell Mommy that that's not quite as steep a drop-off as it looks.  Really!

One even had to go around, so it flew right over our heads!

There sure were a lot of them.  They all pulled off the runway, then once they had all arrived, taxied back onto the runway to line up as static displays for later in the day.

As if the arrival wasn't exciting enough, after work and school Daddy asked me if I wanted to go see the airplanes up close.  Of course!  I ran up to each one and asked Daddy to take a picture of me.  I even had a new pose for almost every one.  I was really having fun being silly.  To a couple of them, I even ran up and gave them a hug, saying, "I'm giving it a hug because I love airplanes!"  Daddy was so proud (and happy).

We even managed to get someone to take a picture of the two of us.  What a fun day!

Mommy and I planted flower seeds!

Mommy brought home some flower seeds the other day, and this morning we decided to plant them!  Mommy gave me an old egg container and I went to town, filling up each cup with dirt and then planting one seed in each cup.  We planted sunflowers and snapdragons.  The snapdragon seeds were super tiny!

We gave them a little water and put them in a nice bright window so they would grow.  I can't wait to see what they look like.

Room for me on my bed?

I like to sleep with as many of my friends as Mommy and Daddy let me get away with!  Sometimes that's quite a few, and sometimes I sneak even more in bed with me after they sing goodnight!

Easter dinner with the Kirbys

Today we invited our friends the Kirbys over for Easter dinner, so I got to play a lot with Alex and Tori.  We dyed lots of eggs, and I thought I did a great job. 

I was sad that we ate them a few days later!

I lost my third tooth!

I've had a loose tooth now since before Christmas.  It just didn't want to fall out!  I even asked Daddy to try to pull it out yesterday, but that didn't work either (and caused a lot of blood).  But today in preschool it finally came out!  I proudly showed it to Daddy when he picked me up, and we had to call Mommy right away. 

Flying with Daddy again finally!

It has been a long time since Daddy and I have gone flying together, and today Daddy's friend Marty had another BBQ at his airport.  I love going to this because I get to drive the golf cart around!  Since I'm so tall now, Daddy asked if I wanted to try sitting in the plane without the car seat.  You bet! 

However, it turns out that then I can't see as well, so we'll probably go back to using the car seat for a while still.  But it was fun to try.  I always love asking Daddy to do "roller coasters", where he zooms up and then zooms down and I even get light in my seat!  I like him doing steep turns too. 

When we got to the airport, of course the first thing I wanted to do was drive the golf cart.  Daddy says I'm so much better than last time (last October).

And look, I can reach the pedals really well now!

Things I love

I announced to Mommy and Daddy today that "I love chocolate milk, and treats, and wow-wow pies, and Mommy, and Daddy, and chocolate milk.  That is all I love for today."

They noticed right away that "chocolate milk" got two mentions but they only got one!
