The parents decided a move was necessary. Mom’s new work, Dad’s new school, Dad’s hopefully future new job. So we bought a new space with tons of crunchy leaves over a lot more land. And yes, I decided to go out with no shoes despite my current obsession with shoes, shoes, shoes. I love the tactile-ness of shoving my hands in birdseed and throwing it, so Mom lets me throw some to the birds every couple of days at the new place. Benefits of living in the country!
We’re coming up on my second birthday pretty soon. Last year, we traveled 12+ hours to Florida for a nautical themed first birthday with family. This year that isn’t in the cards. Instead, we’re staying local and celebrating after service at our fellowship. Mom promised Chipotle, and–of course–she’s making sure its all vegan. I devour the sofritas almost as quickly as I devour bananas. We’re still working on the cake situation, but pretty sure we’re going to pick it up from Sweet Sabine’s, even if it is a bit of a drive. They make amazing vegan cupcakes!
I really don’t need gifts; I want your attention! But if you’re interested in gift giving at the party, feel free to get me anything off my list! Just be aware that I don’t wear anything that isn’t a natural fiber (too many issues with microplastics and environmental friendliness).
- A kiddie basketball hoop
- Books about friendship, animals, and the environment
- Stacking toys (I love knocking them down)
- Soccer balls, basketballs, things I can throw (maybe a bowling set?)
- Things that let me explore nature (a magnifying glass maybe?)
- Anything monkey related (I love Curious George!)
- A recorder or a drum (I already love playing my piano)
I hope that gives y’all some ideas, but what I really want is you there! Talk to Mom if you want to come and she’ll give you the details.
