Jude: 42 Months Old

Hey Jude, you are 3 and a half!

img_9567Jude is such a cool little guy.

img_9755He’s a big bright spot in everyone’s day (except sometimes Toby’s…)

img_9677Whenever someone asks him how he is, he enthusiastically responds, “just great!”.

img_9597He remembers so much of what we tell him now. Even quite specific details. One of the best parts of this age is how he can actually be quite helpful. He can fetch things for me, bring laundry inside, fill up water bottles, cut food up, water plants and dry dishes. Both the boys are awesome at setting the table and clearing it.

img_9445At school he has been learning how to sew buttons onto things and has been busy making these little felt bracelets.

img_9900He is always so proud of whatever he makes.

img_9438His work at school is getting more sophisticated. I can see his lines are getting straighter, and circles rounder. He’s got the letter ‘J’ down pat and has been working on ‘u’.

img_9585He is always asking questions. How to do something, or what a word means.

img_9901He’s so great at following directions and Toby will take his lead. I can take them out pretty easily on my own now – to lunch or shopping. One day off school we went to the mall and out to lunch complete with ice cream after.

img_9403They were so good, I was kind of shocked. I don’t think it’s quite the new norm for them to be this well behaved but hopefully it’s the direction we are heading in.

img_9669At home, it’s a different story. The boys are so physical. They are always rolling around on the floor wrestling, chasing one another, or climbing on one of us. At the end of the day I am exhausted.

It’s been an extended summer here so one morning we packed up and drove to the beach.

img_9524The boys loved it.

img_9537Jude got quite sick at the end of the month. The poor thing had several days of very high fever.

img_9720He stayed home from school for 9 days. There was lots of cartoon and movie watching.

img_9835It was so great when he finally recovered and was back at school with his friends.
