Theaburf - 17months ago

Ahhhh a little late for 17 months but in all fairness i actually took the photos before you were 18 months.
Little bird you are so clever. 
You mimic Jones and others (mostly Jones).
You parrot oh so many words.
Your favorite being "No" and "Mine".
You talk, sing, run, Jump and dance with such passion.  
You love to play babies, cars, and kitchen.  
You are learning to peddle your bike.
You are swinging on big kid swings.
You climb to the top of the highest ladder and go down the tallest slides.
And you recently became a water baby loving the pool.
You even are learning to use the kickboard.
You are sooo messy.
Usually going thru 3-5 outfits a day. 
You like to eat brocoli, mac and cheese and "sauce".
You demand outside most times of the day.
You hug me when you know you are in trouble. 
You like to see dogs from a distance and for some reason you dislike cats. 
You are starting to count. 
You are fiercely independent.
Oh I love you so.
Love mommy

10 - Young Wild and Three a party for Jonesy

So two months back now we had a birthday party for jones!  I went back and forth between having it and not.  Paying for a place or taking chances with the park.  I ended up deciding to just go with the local splash park where they had picnic tables in the shade too it it's hot. I made signs because I am not sure many people had been to this splash park.  
I asked him what he wanted for a theme and he requested monster.  So I rounded up a few monster goodie bag treats and let him make them.  We also made a monster cake together.  
Anyhow it worked out perfectly it wasn't too hot. Lots of friends came, we had exactly enough cake.  
He enjoyed his party and he was super tried and ready for napping when we got home.  
He also requested a Fitbit so that's what I bought him.

3 years Jones Boy!

Holy cow!  3 years old.  

This is three and it's so fun!

yes my child is repping a single sock and his pride robot shirt with his red sweatshorts.  

He dresses himself most days now and the struggle is real.  

He also calls these pumas his "memorial day shoes" because they are red white and blue.  

He is always super into the dinosaurs at the museum and says hello and bye bye everytime.  

He asks me a bazillion questions like what do dinosaurs eat, where do they sleep, when will they come to my house etc etc it's so tiring.  

He also insists some answers I provide to his life lessons are wrong.  

His current favorite food is cherries, he likes 80s-90s pop in the car, he requests we read transformers and Pete the cat.  

He is swimming more and more and getting more proficient.

He gives me this cheesy smile when I ask him to smile for pictures.  

He is potty trained except overnight.

He loves plants and is interested in gardens.

He asks to make "projects" aka crafts usually daily.

He has such a sharp memory. 

He enjoyed his birthday. 

He declares things his favorite. 

He often will ask "this or that" and then waits for you to respond. 

He snuggles me when he's tired.

He will kiss my forehead when he deems that it's needed.

I love you so much jonesy.

Mommy

25 - Paint Master Bedroom

For years this has been on my list, but because I have so little space painting my bedroom was always pushed to the back of the list.  But you know carpet removed and room painted.  It seems sooo bright now sorry I need to take a final photo.
My kids loved helping with this. They were not so helpful but they loved it.  And big shout out to my friend Karen who painted all the things like a champ! 


45 - Artwork for JJ

I was just looking at my list and noticing I have finished things and not updated my blog as I have been soooo busy.  So I am making a mini goal to update my list and blog in August. 
Up first 45 - Send JJ artwork.  We gave him a variety of options for his art wall.  And he actually got these hung up this last weekend.  So good.
