Jude went with zero toppings on his froyo. He’s obviously not my child.

3 years, 4 months

He quickly becomes obsessed with certain toys, movies, books, foods for days or weeks and then suddenly moves on to a new one. His current favorites are The Nightmare Before Christmas, his “keys” (a skateboard key chain with two old keys), and Oreo cookies.

He is an actor. He acts out all the movies and shows he watches in serious detail. He acts out the things Miller, Peggy, Barrett, and Magic do. He’s very observant and notices things we don’t.

He is creative. He uses objects and toys as more then just their function and creates stories and puzzles on his own. He has now started building small forts and slides out of living room furniture. He likes to break and then fix things again.

He knows who the Seminoles are and can do the war chant.

He only wears pull-ups at night which is awesome and saves us a ton of money.

He’s still obsessed with his suckers but I’m not even trying to take them away now because if he doesn’t have one he is always, always putting something in his mouth! We must tell him to “take that out of your mouth” 20 times a day, easily. I think we all know which side of the family that comes from!

He’s currently in his last year of daycare and will start preschool next fall. Time flies.

he has been obsessed with The Nightmare Before Christmas for about a week now so we took the tree out of the garage tonight.
