Our Babydoll is Almost Two!

Wow the year just flew by and when I look at Jackson's growth and development over the past year it is incredible! Really, time does fly when you are having fun! Our little Babydoll is now a Big Boy! Jack started 2010 walking and ended it running, dancing, hitting baseballs, kicking soccer balls, and hiking footballs!

Some stats:
Weight: 26 lbs. 
Height: 32"

Working on telling us he has to go potty ("I haf to go potty!")
Only wears Pull Ups to bed
Can almost pull up his pants (I think he likes the help!)
He can identify all of his letters and counts to 12 (but of course never on command!)
He knows his shapes (triangle, square, circle, rectangle)
He knows his colors
I lost count of his words a long time ago...he talks in short phrases now.
I think he's ready for kindergarten! Just kidding!

"I go snowboarding, too!"

waiting for our first Mandarin class to begin :)
We just joined a Mommy and Me Mandarin class which has been lots of fun. Jackson is such a great student and his favorite part is when we play a marching game!

2-2-09...hours old
We are hoping, praying, crossing our fingers, wishing, dreaming, and envisioning a sibling for Jackson by the time he turns three. But we will see what the future holds for us. For now we are content as a family of three (plus Abby and Biscuit).


  1. I'd say he's ready for 1st grade! Wow, can't believe Jack's almost two! So scary that time will only go faster from here! I was having a bad day, but this blog and video made it all better. Thanks for that! :) LOVE you, give my favorite nephew a HUGE hug from Aunt Cat! Wish so badly I could be there to do it myself! xo

  2. thanks, Cat! great talking to you tonight! xoxo

  3. I sure enjoy reading about your little boy! Well, practically big boy now! He sure is a cutie patootie! Mandarin class? What a smart boy! I look forward to hearing more about how that is going! And happy birthday to Jackson!

    PS. Thanks for the birthday wishes on my blog, Amber! Your comment really made me feel better about turning the big two three! You're right, I have a lot to look forward to :)
