Another year older

All of my babies are July babies.

It’s hard to believe that I now have a 2-year-old, a 3-year-old (our dog, Bailey), and a 9-year-old! How is this even possible? I’m not old enough to have two human babies that are 2 and 9. Summer is in full swing and A has already been on multiple away-from-home vacations. She started with her second annual trip to Georgia, then met us in Pennsylvania at Hershey Park to celebrate her and J’s birthdays, and is now in PEI with her mom. I’m tired just thinking of all the car time she has had but also excited for all of these adventures for her.

Jude is two!
J is two!

The rundown:


Age: 2

Nicknames: Jman, the Jster, Bud, Wildman, Mr. Man

Likes: strawberries (well really any fruit), Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Baby George, Thomas the Train, playing outside, going for walks, riding his tricycle with A, doing anything that A is doing, snuggling, throwing things, binkie

Books: My Truck is Stuck, Brown Bear Brown Bear, Digger Dozer Dumper, Little Blue Truck

Dislikes: eating supper, being without binkie, any meat protein (unless it is undetectable), having his clothes changed

Skills: sings (ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Wheels on the Bus, Hey Jude), puts together long sentences that are in context, full-body hugger, climber extraordinaire.

Likes: playing with Bailey, soccer, Monster High, art, horses, playing outdoors, going for walks, watching movies (favorite now: Frozen), being in the water, doing science experiments

Dislikes: strawberries, putting away laundry.

This is how she sleeps.
