A Little Boy's Dream Come True

Demitri adores fire trucks so when one pulled up next to us in the parking lot he was beside himself with excitement. He loved looking at all the hoses and nozzles. I love the look on his face in the last pic, he was very pleased with himself.

New Favorite Book

We must have read this book 25 times in the last 3 days. I am getting ready to hide it but he really enjoys it. What to do? Help the kid learn or preserve my sanity????

The Armpit is the New Belly Button

About six months ago D was obsessed with his belly button. He would pull up his shirt to show strangers his belly button and would expect the same in return from them. Yesterday he learned how to say armpit and is now fascinated with every ones pits. He really gets his head stuck up under your arm too. This kid is a strange one...he takes after his dad!

Cousin Ava's 5th Birthday

We headed off to Corona Del Mar for some fun in the sun to celebrate Ava's fifth birthday. Demitri is still scared of the water but if he has a hole near the water's edge he is content and will splash around. Demitri loves the beach. He calls it the "Big Sand".

BEWARE of bees at this beach!!! LOL, I think I may be the only person in the history of the world to have stepped on a bee at the beach and have gotten stung. Joe is still laughing at me.

The Circus

My good friend Dawn invited Demitri and I to go to the circus with her family. I was a little apprehensive because I know that Demitri is very sheepish when it comes to events like that. Dawn and I talked it over and decided that Demitri might surprise us because he would probably be so enthralled with all of the animals that he would not notice all of the people and the noise. SURPRISE...we were wrong. Demitri lasted all of two minutes in the circus and we spent the rest of the time meandering in the hallway. I felt so bad because we left at intermission and poor Alex, Dawn's son, wanted to stay and watch the rest of the show. Lesson learned... NO MORE BIG EVENTS FOR DEMITRI FOR A LONG TIME! Second lesson learned... if we do go to an event like that, take two cars so everybody does not have to leave at intermission. Thanks again to the R. family for inviting us.

Demitri did love riding next to Mia in the car, he was holding her hand at one point.

All of a sudden Demitri is a little , ok maybe a lot , scared of things. We are talking about everyday things that he wasn't scared of before. I know that it is just a phase and he will get past it but Joe has given him a very fitting nickname. He is Lambert, our sheepish lion.

Santa Ana Zoo

Nana and I took Demitri to the Santa Ana zoo today. The highlight of D's trip had to be the monkey's and the tractors. He also liked the choo choo but refused to ride it around the zoo. He just liked to watch it go by. There was a petting zoo. Demitri liked to look at the animals but wouldn't touch any of them. He did think that they water fountains to wash your hands were pretty cool.

Sunday at the Beach

Happy Independance Day!

Wow, what a difference a year makes. I say this every time I do a comparison with pictures but I just can not get over how this kid is growing like a weed. Demitri was not down with the fireworks. We went to the neighbors house and no sooner than the first firework was lit that D started insisted that we return home. Oh well, maybe next year.
