Another Half

Happy Half Birthday to my Jackalope! He is officially 2.5 today. I don't know if it is a boy thing, a second child thing, a personality thing, or a mom-knows-how-to-deal-with-it better thing, but the twos have been fairly mild for Jack (although he certainly has his moments!). Keep your fingers crossed that he remains this way!

I wish I had all of his stats... he is about 33lbs and (I'll measure his height and come add it in!)

Things Jack is doing...
  • Talking up a storm. Uses long sentences, tells stories, engages other children with language.

  • Growing taller and skinnier by the day.

  • Likes to fall asleep in little hideaways - behind the rocking chair, behind the door, under the bed, etc. (apparently his dad used to do the same thing)

  • Climbs on EVERYTHING. I haven't figured out how he does it yet, but he can get up on the countertops in the kitchen...

  • Loves music. Loves to tinker on the piano and makes up his own songs.

  • Can say his ABC's and his numbers to 12. Is recognizing a lot of letters and numbers, and knows the sounds of several letters.

  • Likes to tinker and "fix" things with his play tools.

  • Is starting to build with his train set instead of destroy it.

  • Likes to get into his big sisters things.
