Our boys are 3 years and 8 months respectively... where does the time go?

  • 3 foot 1 inch (30th percentile)
  • 34.5 lbs (90th percentile)
  • Didn't cry AT ALL when we went for his 3 year check up
  • Loves anything with wheels... tractors and trucks are favorites
  • Plays with his dinosaur rice (bucket of rice we had hidden dinosaurs in the first time we played with it) for hours each day.
  • Loves to run, chase me is a favorite saying!
  • Sweet to his brother, until he gets a little crazy and then he pushes
  • Likes to go to museums, go fishing, boating, golfing, bowling, swimming, running, camping, and just about anything else you want him to do!
  • Will repeat everything you don't want him to...
  • Tells us he loves us without prompting, says "bless you" when you sneeze, thank you unprompted when given something or someone says something nice to him
  • Asks Mommy to lay with him almost every night.
  • Loves to read books (especially about tractors, but likes all books)
  • Says his prayers starting with "Dear Lord" a thank you for something (often tractors) and an Amen.  All while folding his hands.
  • Happy most of the time, but will for sure throw a fit if he doesn't get what he wants.  Says I'm sorry, for ____, and that he won't do it again.
  • Loves his neighbor kids (Dylan and Lexi) and wants to play with them ALL the time.
  • Loves to sing nursery rhymes (sings Tuckery Songs like All around the Parking Garage)
  • Has 2 teeth
  • Can crawl on hands and knees (fast)
  • Can pull himself up on almost anything he wants to
  • Walks around things if he wants to get to something
  • When standing will bounce on knees
  • Let's go of the table in the living room and leans a little with his belly so he can use both hands
  • Knocks 2 objects together
  • Will repeat a pattern if you hit a table
  • Loves any toys Jackson has and hates it when Jackson takes a toy from him
  • Eats solid foods (likes most veggies and fruits)
  • Eats snacks (Mum Mums, puffs, teething cookies, rice krispies)
  • Will drink water from a sippy cup
  • Goes after the cat food every chance he gets and laughs when you pull him away
  • Has solid poos
  • Goes to bed most nights by 8:45pm, wakes either 3 or 5:30am, sleeps until 7:30/8am, naps around 9:30/10 for an hour and a half, naps around 1:30/2:00pm for an hour or two
  • Drinks from a bottle a lot better (unless Mommy is around)
  • Goes to Daycare 1 day a month
  • Loves to laugh at Daddy and Jackson, but loves to go to Mommy
  • Cuddler, but active little man!
  • He loves to chase Spooky and try to pet her (or pull her tail)
  • Does not have stranger danger (just like Jackson)
  • Pulls toys out of baskets, buckets, off table
  • Climbs up on stairs!  Yikes!  He sits a little too close to the edge, but doesn't fall much.  He likes the fireplace so he can look at himself in the glass.
Our boys are so big and we couldn't be more proud!  We love them to pieces!


  1. Jackson and Bryce are the same height!! Except Bryce is only 29lbs and 20% for weight.

  2. I just saw your comment on my blog and for some reason it did not let me reply in email. Anyway, I was unaware that the follow button was not showing up. I have no idea how to fix this! I'll see what I can do. Thanks for stopping in though! And by the way, your boys are pretty cute. :)
