my son just said ‘wets get some cwothes on and show da gurls my new transformer…dey won’t even nechornize it! dey won’t.’ #threenager #kids #proudmomma
Ah! Biggest word yet…recognize! Jax is getting so smart. Proud momma for sure over here. I know that he is going to learn so much more in preschool but I just get this indescribable feeling when he says something new! Just had to share his from today. If you don’t already, follow him on twitter @littlemanjax…and me @_lauracoggins too!
my son just told the neighbor girl, (crying over a bouncy ball) ‘we share balls…& toys. just like that okay. don’t fuss!’ #parenting #wahm
Haha! Wish my fingers would have been fast enough to capture this on vine! He had his hands on his hips and everything! Now, if only he would take his own advice. Just had to share this tweet from today. If you don’t already, follow me on twitter…@_lauracoggins and @littlemanjax too!
Jax is another month older, 39 months…so independent, curious and adventurous. Each time I write an update about him, I try to just soak in everything that happened the past month, what he said to me, the things he did. We have good days and we have days full of nothing but fits.
It has been a crazy month. With the tragedy in Boston and in Texas…I’m holding my babies close. Praying for all the families that are suffering and that have lost a loved one. He experienced his first storm, the power went out and we had to head to the basement with a candle. A tornado actually hit a few miles from our house. Power outages everywhere, so we stayed in a hotel for a little bit. It was his first time (that he could remember) As he walked in he said, ‘It’s like a home, I wuv this chair too!’
Hoping this month will be better and brighter! Summer is almost here. Daddy is building his first swing set that MawMaw and PopPop gave him for his birthday. It’s the littlest I’ve ever seen. He will love it. He loves to be outside. Riding his bike. Stealing daddy’s tools. Pretending to be a ‘worker guy’. He’s got a new little neighbor pal, Annie. He played his first game of tag. It was so cute to watch. Lots of giggles.
Yesterday we took Jax on a late night trip to Smoothie King…first timer!
Jax. Jax. Jax. Yet another month older, that makes 38 months to be exact. This past month (week rather) he has blown my mind. So damn smart. All those tricks I had up my sleeve when he was younger are not working so much anymore.
We are dying to get outside, it seems to be either really rainy or randomly snowing here. Jax’s favorite thing to do inside is jump in Case’s crib with him. The other day I said, ‘Enough jumping for today’ and told him to ‘get out immediately!’ He knew I meant business. So he left the room for a minute, came back in and held out his hand, ‘Mom, will you give me?’ I didn’t understand what he wanted so I asked, ‘What do you mean?’ he quickly replied…’It makes people happy.’ My mouth dropped. My son was asking me to forgive him because he was jumping without my permission. Really?! Talk about blown away that my three year old knows the concept of forgiveness! The sweetest thing ever! Well and THIS bedtime chat too.
So happy that he is eating better! He ate pork chops, butternut squash + quinoa the other night for dinner. These are helping out a little. And maybe Case is rubbing off on him a little. Operation Milk is still in full force. (Thank you everyone for the tips!)
Side note, I’m really not into all these action figures or toys guns. Ready for spring, I mean summer! Swimming and bikes and activities that wear him out. Ha!
- My husband and I were laying on each side of Jax, tucking him in for bed.
- Something we've never done together, that I can recall.
- Jax: I wuv you dad.
- Daddy: Love you too bud.
- Jax: (big tight squeeze) I'll never woose you dad.
- Daddy: You'll never lose me? I'll never lose you.
- I die. I immediately covered my face and teared up.
- I will never forget this bedtime chat.
