I know this blog is a few days late, but better late than never!
Happy birthday, baby Jackson! You're not a baby anymore, you are a full-fledged toddler. You are full of energy and life and you make Daddy and me very happy.
You are talking so much and can pretty much say anything you want to, now. Your latest trend is saying, "Show me" or "Show ya" and taking our hands and leading us to whatever it is that you want to show us. It's super cute. You love playing with your cars, you know the names of all the characters from Thomas the Train and the Cars movie, even though we still haven't officially introduced you to TV yet. You notice every little thing, just like your Daddy--you point out to me the line in the sky from the planes, the moon, the stars, our shadows, pinecones. You know all your numbers by looking at them but can only count to 4 right now. Your favorite number is 9 and your favorite letter is Q. You are working on your ABCs but know your letters really well. We're also working on your colors; you think everything is blue. You get really excited when you see a "blue car." You just had your 2 year check up at the doctor's office:
Weight: 26 lbs
Height: 34 1/2 inches
You can do everything you are supposed to for your age, but we're trying to teach you to jump. I'm going to take a YouTube video soon of you trying to jump, it's really funny. You are always willing to try something new. You love playing with balls outside with the girls. You do really well still at the nursery and at the YMCA daycare. You have still managed to make it through life without any antibiotics, and your only illness so far was a bout of croup in January, bringing us to the ER and everything.
My life has changed dramatically since you were born, and I have realized that you make my life richer and fuller, and I absolutely LOVE being your mommy. That will never change.
I will post some pics of his birthday party soon. It was a construction theme, and it was really fun.
Happy birthday, baby!
