The last six months have flown by. Wow. I mean I really can’t believe Jakson is almost two years old, and the fact that I am going to be a mom to a two-year-old is even more mind-boggling. The reason I haven’t been on lately is that I have been having way too much fun. These past few months have been busy, yes, but have also been the most fun and exciting and enjoyable. Jakson has grown so much. He gives hugs and kisses all the time, and has even started giving Chase (the baby we nanny) hugs and kisses when he sees him. It’s the CUTEST. I also didn’t write down Jakson’s grover phase from a few months back, which basically consisted of taking Grover everywhere and getting him dressed and carrying him like a baby and changing his diaper, etc… Jakson couldn’t put him down for a second. And luckily, I got TONS of photos of the two together. (:
What else has happened… Well, Jakson talks a little. He mostly copies things from movies like “no” “nah” “mom? dad?” “ahhhhhh *smacks hands on face like kevin mccalister*” and allllll the truck noises. Firetruck, ambulance, police car, monster truck, lightning McQueen, like every thing you can think of. And various other noises like cookie monster, “uh-oh” “aw man”, “mama”, “mom”, “MAAAAAMMMMM” (only moms will understand), and yum, the shiver noise when he is telling us something is cold, he says “ho ho ho” when he’s talking about Santa. There’s just so much that he can do now! We also like to do some dancing around here, which isn’t new news but jaksons dance moves are front page headlining news because DANG that boy can dance. I sing him a little “go Jakson, go Jakson, it’s your birthday” and he goes wild with his hands and his feet and stumbles around at high-speed until he inevitably falls on his butt and claps for himself. (Are toddlers not the cutest thing on this planet?)
Jakson doesn’t throw fits, infact he doesn’t really do any thing THAT bad, ever. He’s a perfect angel and I am not even trying to be the mom that pretends like her kids are perfect when actually it’s a disaster. I just love him so much. He’s my buddy, and we just hangout all day together and play cars and play outside and watch movies and clean the house and cook and watch the baby. It is so awesome. And bonus: he can ACTUALLY help now, instead of just me pretending like he is helping and then going behind his back and undoing / redoing everything he helped with. He actually knows how to wipe stuff down, and get me towels after I get out of the shower. (This is one of my fav things he does because not only is it convenient, it’s freakin adorable.) And he can mix his own chocolate milk. Okay, this would be easier if I did it but he loves it so much that I don’t mind cleaning up the mess. He also “helps” make Chase’s bottles, and its pretty messy too.. But again, he loves it so. Whaddaya do?
Jakson is basically a vacuum for food. He eats anything (that he likes) in insane amounts and will quite literally eat an entire thing of baby puffs in the time it takes him to watch cars 3. But, he also has phases where he won’t eat anything for days and I think he is going to be hospitalized. There’s no middle ground. He loves to read, especially corduroy and his counting and color books. Which reminds me, JAKSON IS A GENIUS. He knows all of his colors and can basically count. And, you can ask him what (almost) any letter sounds like and he will make the sound. Also this isn’t new but he can do his animal noises veryyyyy well. I am so proud of him! He is so theatrical when he plays and is always using an imagination. He uses his little kitchen and fake food to cook stuff up and will let me and grandma taste it. He hugs himself and makes kissy noises when grandma goes to bed and will run and jump into her arms and give her millions of hugs and kisses. I am only kind of jealous (‘: but he snuggles with me all night long so it’s no biggy.
Well, I always drift away from my blog and writing, and I always find myself right back here, so maybe that should tell me a little something about career options. I want to live just like I am now, maybe with my own house and a little more traveling, and the only way I know of to do that is with a blog so I should really just do it. I mean I’m already writing this crap so what do I got to lose? I’ll keep ya updated.
goodnight, sorry for the bipolar post. just wanted to document these things <333
