32 Month updates on Lil J

I wasn't thinking yesterday, obviously.  Had I realized the very next day Lil J was turning another month older I would've just included the potty training update as part of this blog.  Oh well, no harm having an extra blog written.

So his measurements haven't changed at all in this past month.  I do hope that's normal.  His height remains 36" (25-50%), his weight remains 32.8 lbs (50-75%), & his head circumference remains 21.5" (>95%).

He continues to be more & more verbal all the time.  And it's becoming more obvious that he isn't just repeating what he hears.  He clearly comprehends most of the words & uses them in the proper context.  This really amazes me.  He sings a lot these days as well.  And he LOVES to make silly faces. 

He remains very interested in his books, his cars, his trains & trucks.  He is REALLY interested in bikes.  I think that will be his next birthday present.  I am very excited about Christmas this year.  I know he doesn't fully understand Jesus' birthday, but I am going to make cupcakes & we will sing happy birthday to Jesus on Christmas morning, then we're going to church (I wish Christmas every year fell on a Sunday so we could start the day in church), then doing presents & I do think he'll be excited about his presents this year.

I'm hoping he continues to do well with potty training.  As I said earlier, I posted all about that yesterday.

This morning when hubby was leaving for work, Lil J kept saying over & over, "bye daddy!  I love you!" It was so precious.  Then when me & Lil J sat down to eat breakfast, before I could pray, Lil J bows his head & says "Thank you Jesus for food" & then he grabs my hand & continues "thank you Jesus......I love you"  It was really sweet.

I think that's all the updates I have for now.

In the last month Landon's speech has skyrocketed. He's speaking in SENTENCES now. He is also a parrot...repeating everything. Landon also enjoys to sing. It's so very sweet. :) I think it's really lovely how you bring J to church with you (I'm not brave enough) and that he already understands so much about Jesus. I talk to Landon and Hannah both about Jesus and how Christmas is His birthday but I don't think they really understand. Wish I could get Ryan to help a little more with that, but he and I differ where our faith is concerned. Merry Christmas and God bless! This truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

It must be tough when you & your hubby differ in faith. A lot of people felt I was wrong for holding out to find a man with the same beliefs as me, but it was THAT important to me & I did stand my ground & God did bless me & give me a husband that has the same beliefs as me. I don't think we've ever disagreed on anything in regards to faith, which I am oh so grateful for.
