Jackson is a HUGE football fan! I don't know where he gets that from...hmmm....When college football started, he was screaming, "Yay, football! Woo hoo!!!" and looked forward to watching it with Dada. Even the preview shows were exciting to him as he ran by to grab a book or play with his toys. Now that the NFL is ending its second week, Jackson has had just a taste of what the season has to offer as Sierra vies for another championship in the KOP Fantasy Football League. Fun times at the Izzard home!
He knows how to say many football related words, "helmet, huddle, tackle, football, coach, pass, hike, Chargers, and touchdown" are a few. He has two favorite teams--the Chargers and the Saints and wears each team's shirt with pride.
We have even caught him trying to change Sierra's FF lineup!
Jackson seems to learn so many new things that it is hard to keep up with his daily progress! He always amazes us. He has learned to run really fast and we are finding it harder to keep up with our little guy! A few of our friends had babies recently so it makes us think about those newborn experiences and how TIRED we were then...and how much easier it was then! LOL! A toddler is full of energy and it starts at 5:45 a.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m. =)
Jack and Sierra recently built a car ramp out of books before bed. It was so cute I had to capture it on video. I just love his reaction to his successful launches!
He also loves to dance with me when we get home and prepare dinner. He asks me to dance and lately we have been watching kid friendly videos and dancing. He obviously gets his moves from my genes. Ha!
This little guy also loves to color. He says the colors are "pretty" and will color in his Elmo book, on his chair, in the tub, and (oops!) on the couch! Luckily Sierra got that one out! Here is a video of Jack trying to name colors and shapes!
What I LOVE about this age is that toddlers mimic and try to do what Mommy or Daddy do. So, we have a little helper! Jackson has helped with laundry, sweeping, watering, dishes, cleaning his high chair, and scrubbing his belly. ;) All this work makes for a tired boy!
