Loving the Snow!

We are enjoying our Christmas in the snowy north! Micah has embraced every aspect of the snow and even loves shoveling. We built a snowman in Uncle Kurt's front yard.
Snowball fight with Lao Ye!
It's a winter wonderland.

Children's Christmas Musical


The Cherub Choir at church was invited to participate in the children's Christmas musical. Micah had so much fun singing the songs and learning the choreography. And then on the night of the musical he put everything he had into it. Enjoy!

Our Budding Beethoven

Micah loves music. He loves to listen, sing and play. Our house is always full of music. I can't wait to see what he does with this love as he grows up.

Happy 4th Birthday, Micah

My big boy turned 4 this week. Here's the birthday boy all ready for school!
After school Micah had a party at the jumpy place.
Look at the springs on that boy!
Blowing out the candles on the birthday cake.
Monster truck birthday cake.
The cake was blue. Not just the icing, the actual cake too!
Mical was king for a day.
Micah's presents went in the blue wagon. Pretty cool.
Wow, what a haul! Thank you everyone!

Micah's First Day at PreK

This week, Micah started school at the local public school. Mama was nervous because this means a five full days of school each week. Micah was excited because he gets to carry a backpack! We got up early to pack his backpack for school.
All packed and ready to go.
I can't believe how big and grown up he is.

Visit from Lao Lao and Lao Ye

Lao Lao and Lao Ye recently came for a week's visit. Micah was thrilled to spend time with his grandparents. (I think they enjoyed it too). We mostly stuck around home and spent family time together.

Stopping at the Redneck Gourmet.
Micah enjoying his sweet tea. Yes, he's a southern boy who happens to have been born in China.
No visit to the ATL is complete without lunch at Chik-Fil-A.
Yum! Nuggets!

Happy Independence Day!

It was time for a 4th of July tradition, the Peachtree City 4th of July Parade. Ashley and Cole came over early in the morning. We picked up Tiffany, Tasha and Jennifer on the way and our little golf cart caravan made our way across town. We got there early to stake out our spot along the parade route. There were golf carts lining the road as far as the eye could see!
The boys had time to share a snack.
Finally the parade started. Micah loved the firetrucks.
But the sirens were a little too loud.
We all got to partake in popsicles handed out by the Fayette Piedmont Hospital.
At the end, we all piled back on the golf carts and joined the parade of golf carts driving home.

Crete!

Summer is a time for family vacations. This year, we made the trek to Crete, Nebraska, Bruce's home town. It was a great time and Micah got to spend lots of time with NaiNai and YeYe. Micah helped YeYe cook, work in the yard and generally putter around the house. It was neat for Micah to see where Baba grew up, too. Bruce has childhood memories of climbing on this tank in the city park.
There was a big family picnic and we got to see lots of family and friends. Bruce with Brian and Wilma.
Bruce with his brother, David.
Micah was fascinated and terrified by David's motorcycle. Here he is showing off his "road rash."Micah thinks David is ultra cool 'cuz he rides a bike and drives a semi! Here he is hanging out in the cab of David's truck. I got to visit with David's wife Jahnee'. Jahnee' is a fellow knitter and shared several new techniques that will make my knitting better.
Bruce and Micah trying out the bike for size.
Micah spent lots of time playing with the neighbor boy. It was heartwarming to see an older boy be so tender and attentive to a little guy. Micah wanted to do everything he did.

Growing and Changing

I could probably start each and every blog post with an apology for not posting more often. I think I'll just forgo that part and give you some cute pictures showing how Micah is growing and changing!

We literally go miles with Micah his trike. His favorite thing to say: "Mama go for a walk. Baba go for a walk. Libby go for a walk. Micah ride bike!"
Such a handsome boy.
Micah loves to "read." He will name each letter in the word, and tell you what sound each letter makes. Then he will tell you the word says, "Micah!"

Micah's New Toy Bins

It was time to find a new way to store Micah's toys or risk having the house taken over by cars, Elmos and Thomas Trains. Micah was happy to help complete this project.
He has remarkable hand eye coordination (in my unbiased, proud mom opinion), and helped with the screwdriver and hammer.
The finished product!

Last Day of School

What a whirlwind this school year has been! Micah has gone from a shy little boy who knew no one to a confident guy with a bunch of friends. He has learned the entire alphabet and knows numbers, too. We are so grateful to his teachers, Mrs. Sanders and Mrs. Kendall, for building into his life.

We've come a long way from the boy who would take one swipe at the page with a crayon and call it done. Here's my little lefty!
Micah loves to do puzzles. Mom: Micah, what does a duck say? Micah: Aflac. Aflac. AFLAC!!!!!
