Jude: 21 Months Old

I think Luke and I would be happy to freeze time and forever keep Jude this age.

IMG_2763He is so much fun.

IMG_2543His talking has taken off – he’s mastering new words and phrases everyday. We crack up every time he goes on one of his long explanations about something random in his native toddler tongue.

IMG_2297We’ve also entered the age of ‘no’. He will say it over and over with conviction if he really doesn’t want to do something. But there are still times he will mix it up with ‘yes’!

IMG_2179Jude is so into everything – always keen to learn how to do something new.

IMG_2517He’s a lot of fun to do things with and is getting better at walking longer distances.

IMG_2369Toby and Jude had a great month together.

IMG_2203He is finally used to Toby being apart of our everyday routine.

IMG_2468The three of us go out everyday to a playground. Toby loves watching Jude run around.

IMG_2396If Toby is grumpy Jude and I will try our hardest to cheer him up. One day Toby exploded into laughter watching Jude run across the room and jump on me over and over.

IMG_2131Another big change that has helped immensely has been that Jude is now happy to play by himself.

IMG_2286He will go over to his toys and initiate  play. He can now build with legos and put train tracks together.

IMG_2076I would say 90% of the day he has a train or a toy car in his hand driving it over the furniture. He sometimes even sneaks them into his crib.

IMG_2397Jude has a great little group of friends who we play with throughout the week.

IMG_2230They know each others names and love to hug!

IMG_2324They have so much fun together. It’s great to watch.

IMG_2480We celebrated my 31st birthday this month. We spent the day at various playgrounds running around.

IMG_2390Later in the day we had cake, but had to wait for Dad to come home before we could eat it.

IMG_2402It was a long, hard wait for this guy. He was crying and saying ‘cake’ over and over in the sadest way. I caved and ended up cutting it before Luke arrived.

IMG_2403Jude’s hair grows like weeds and since our last horrible haircut experience I’ve been avoiding the next. He woke up from nap one afternoon and I decided it was time…

IMG_2648It was just as bad as the last time!

IMG_2659But his tears quickly disappeared after when they handed him this awesome green car.

IMG_2662There are so many ups and downs in a toddler’s day. We have a lot of battles but far more laughter.

IMG_2716Happy 21 months, Jude!
