few days late…my little man is 26 months old now! When do you stop counting in months? That always bothered me before I became a mom. So…Jaxon is 2 years and 2 months, ha!
I feel like ever since Jax turned two, I am just so amazed by how smart he is. How much he concentrates and thinks and even what he remembers. His favorite book is Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? by Bill Martin Jr. and illustrator, Eric Carle. It is perfect because we are learning colors now. He has been a pro at blue for a while. He loves to draw. Gotta get him some sidewalk chalk for sure! He’s definitely going to be an artist. Although he really digs music…caught him dancing nude in the living room to Dance-a-Lot Robot. Hilarious!
He is currently obsessing over going outside and riding his little bike…pedaling all by himself. I think we’ve been stuck in our home for too long. The weather has been so gorgeous. It’s pretty funny, he still thinks that he needs a hat and coat to go outside. ;) We are all ready for summer! (We booked our ‘kid-free’ vacation! Hoping to take Jax to the beach for a weekend though.) My work has really been picking up lately and he is now going to the sitter a few days a week. Which is awesome because he gets to play and run around all day with his best friend, Carter. (They were born a month apart.) They wear each other out, so much that he will fall asleep eating at dinner.
Potty training is going well…it is not quite an everyday thing, but he understands what he is suppose to do. We even got him a new seat for the ‘big potty’. Hoping that he can catch on before the baby arrives. Eating is going even better. Should have switched to 2% milk a while ago. He is eating so many more fruits and meats. Still trying to sneak in the veggies. We went to the doctor and he weighed 30 lbs and was 35 inches tall…happy to see him in the 60ish percentiles!
oxoxo…I’m pretty sure we have one of the most lovable kids around. Jax gives hugs and ‘tisses’ and ‘I yous’ all the time! So we are sending everyone lots of love this week! Yesterday he turned 25 months. Hard to believe his second birthday was already a month ago. Where does the time go?
Jaxon is growing up so much…doing lots of new things. I have really noticed that he is concentrating much more when he plays. Daddy is teaching him how to play hockey…so fun to watch them. He is obsessed with the yard stick, the plunger, Daddy’s leaf blower and my typewriter. Always wants to go outside…even brings me his shoes to speed up the process. Ha! Loves to climb in and out and on top of anything…our little dare devil. He is also in to running fast.
He is so determined. Has to brush his teeth everyday. Likes to pick out what color shirt he wears. Loves to take baths…umm, probably two times a day. His vocabulary has tripled…says two and three words all the time. The other day he burped at lunch and said ‘scuse you’. Using those manners…even when I don’t remind him! It’s funny he says ‘No please’. See what else he is saying here.
He lets me know when he poops…hopefully we are one step closer to being diaperless. Eating habits are not so great though. He would much rather drink milk for every meal…but we are trying to work in some new foods. I am so glad that he is sleeping in his big boy bed all the time now. No crying either, well except he always wants me to go to sleep too. FYI…toddler beds are super uncomfortable.
