Today Jacob turned 2 1/2. Which means we are halfway through surviving the terrible two's. And so far they haven't been too terrible. We've had our challenges, of course, but we mostly just have to laugh at the drama. Anyway, here's a glimpse of Jacob at 2 1/2.
Weight: 33.6 lbs
Favorite Food: chicken, crackers, cheerios, cheesesticks
Favorite Toy: balls, bike, lawnmower, art supplies
Frequent Phrases: "probably," "right now?," "what kind?" (this one is getting on my nerves) "I do it" and "I do it all by self," "stop," "you want to try it?," and "you eat?"
Me: Look at the bug
Jake: You like bugs?
Me: They are okay
Jake: You eat bugs?
(he asks this about EVERYTHING)
New Accomplishments: going potty all by himself, he's about 75% potty trained, dressing and undressing
What We Did This Month: continued the sticker reward system for potty training (still working well), celebrated Mother's Day, met Ben, Auntie Sarah came for a visit, Relay for Life, flew his kite for the first time, had our first picnic, lots of visits to the park
Likes: spiderman (he's slightly obsessed even though he's never even SEEN spiderman haha), trains, trucks, swimming, playing outside, monsters, being chased, reading, his baby brother
Dislikes: going to bed, brushing his teeth (though he's getting better about this), not getting his way
he got to play on this firetruck at relay
I think kids are just born knowing how to do this.
hiding under his bed
