Jude: 34 Months Old

Jude is getting closer and closer to 3 and it no longer seems that crazy as he really does seem so grown-up.

IMG_2735Jude is very much into doing everything himself these days.

IMG_2625We are constantly having to do things over because we failed to let him do it himself the first time. It gets pretty tiring for us but we know its important for him to feel like he is a ‘big boy’.

IMG_2624He also really loves being first; first in line, first down the slide, first to get the cookie, etc.  His insistence can sometime cause some stressful situations on the playground but I’ve been working with him a lot on letting others go first to make them feel happy. He just loves to see his friends happy.

IMG_2672Jude is really into talking to Toby. It’s such a relief as a parent to see that the older child doesn’t ignore the younger. I can now tell Jude to take Toby to play in room and he will! It’s so amazing. He will go over and ask Toby to go with him and just like that Toby follows. They will sit and play now for ages and sometimes won’t let me join in. I am getting a lot more done around the house these days.

IMG_2720Of course it sometimes makes for another big mess to clean.

IMG_2677Jude is also really into policing Toby’s not so great behavior. Biting, hitting, whatever it is. Jude has my back and will tell Toby not to be naughty. Of course, there are still a lot of times when Jude is the one doing the bad behavior.

It’s so great that I can now ask Jude what happened and he can tell me. If Toby runs away from their play session crying, Jude will tell me things like; “I took Toby’s car, now he’s crying. I say ‘Sorry, Toby’ but he’s still crying.”

We love Jude’s sentences. He can string together some pretty adorable ones that make us laugh so hard.IMG_2785Jude loves helping me in the kitchen. He is constantly asking if he can help me make something. Lucky for him it was Valentines Day last month and so he got to help make cookies.

IMG_2461Jude and Kate are as tight as ever.

IMG_2613He is always asking for me to tell him stories about ‘Princess Kate and Prince Jude’.

IMG_2502I discovered Jude on Facebook yet again.

He is also all over this company’s website.

Jude is one cool little dude.
