This kid is friendly.
This kid is energetic.
This kid cracks me up.
This kid melts me.
This kid is 2 1/2.
It's unbelievable to me that Jake is now 1 day past 2.5 years old. Some days I feel like he was just born and others it feels like he has always been a part of the family. And I guess when you really think about it, God always knew he would be a part of my family, so that must be why he fits in so well. :-)
What to say about this boy who can go from hot to cold; the sweetest angel to the craziest demon child; from 0-60- in about 2 seconds....
He's 2 1/2.
He loves to play.
He loves to sing.
He loves ice cream.
His favorite color is whatever color shirt he is wearing that day.
He still loves his paci at bedtime.
He loves to laugh.
He loves to make people laugh.
He loves to take pictures.
He loves to make his own videos.
He loves being outside.
I can't really say what his favorite food is because he is really a great eater- yogurt, applesauce, pizza, mac and cheese, chicken nuggets, carrots, celery, hummus, rice, french fries, hamburgers, bananas, apples, grits, eggs, pancakes, bacon, jelly sandwiches, chips, goldfish (s'mores kind is his favorite), granola bars, nutri-grain bars, hershey kisses...
And Yum Yum's hot dogs.
Sometimes he leans over and says "Mommy, I am going to kiss your cheek now."
Sometimes he gets mad when I wear my hair in a ponytail.
Sometimes he wants his sister to hold him.
And sometimes he doesn't.
He brings happiness to all who meet him.
Especially Great Grandma.
And he looks cute no matter what he wears or pretends to wear.
He knows numbers almost to 20.
He knows his ABC's.
He knows his birthday (as of yesterday).
He knows shapes (including all the "hard" ones).
He knows how to spell his name (with an emphasis on "A" for some reason- ha!).
And he knows that he has us all wrapped around his finger and that he is the light of all our lives.
We are so blessed to have his sweet boy in our family.
