35 Months

In one month, Mason will be three. That is CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAZZZZYYY!!!  Since I’ve been so bad at blogging lately, I figured I would throw up a “Month Day” post, just to look back at the last month since we all can see this blog definitely hasn’t been a good reflection!

In his 35th month, Mason….

  • saw Yo Gabba Gabba Live! in the Cities and had a great time!
  • got a big kid’s sled but hasn’t been able to play with it much due to lots of 0º temps
  • wears mainly 24 month clothing with some 18 month and 2T stuff thrown in
  • loves to wear his train and monster hoodies he got for Christmas, as well as his “John Deer Shirt and pants” (the pants are actually plain camo pants LOL)
  • went to his first birthday party for a non-relative and had a great time swimming and eating cake (Thanks A and Q!)
  • Started seriously transitioning into the “Big Kids Room” (aka 3 year old room with 4-12 close by) at school
  • loves to say “Mommy/Daddy, I like you” randomly. Like when he calls you into his room at 2 am.
  • worries about whether Joe is sad when we are not home.
  • loves to bring us our things – he’s constantly bringing me my Kindle and both of us our phones or bottles of pop. Even if we’re in the bathroom or somewhere where it’s obviously NOT needed.
  • didn’t see his Grandma J much as she was sick most of the month
  • ate his last meal in our favorite family cafe.
  • really enjoyed shoveling with SuperDad.
  • celebrated Valentine’s Day at school with a tea party and his favorite stuffed puppy was his special guest.
  • decided napping at home is for babies, but laying in his crib and watching “Bob the Builder” on the Kindle is fantastic.
  • favorite inside activities are watching TV (ugh), play with his tractors or monster trucks, playing with his trains, and playing hide and seek.
  • favorite TV shows are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Chuggington, Doc McStuffins, and Yo Gabba Gabba.
  • favorite outside activities right now are shoveling and stomping in the snow.
  • likes to play the “one parent against another” game by coming bawling to one of us going “Moommmmyyy, Daddy said I couldn’t have a cookie!!! *sob* *sob* *sob*” It’s very pathetic and hysterical all at once.
  • is spot on with most of his colors and can count actual objects up to 14 if he feels like it.
  • loves to talk about Auntie Sarah and Baby Liam.
  • missed two days of school with a fever and a bad cough
  • still refers to his grandmas by the colors they wore last. “My pink grandma” “my blue grandma” It keeps us guessing
  • cried for half an hour when he came home and Joe wasn’t there (Joe was at the vet) Telling him Joe was at the doctor made him cry harder. Poor guy.
  • roleplays with his cars and trucks and there is usually a mommy, daddy, and baby or kid
  • insists on wearing his “Monster shoes” even though they are getting too small and he has awesome Yo Gabba Gabba shoes in an appropriate size
  • would wear his winter boots everywhere if we let him
  • gets mad if we talk while he’s watching TV. “Shhhhhhhhh!! be quiet!!!” is a common phrase during his two TV shows per day.
  • rarely eats a decent amount of food at supper time. He eats all his food at breakfast and lunch at school, so I try not let this bother me.
  • favorite snacks are still little muffins and teddy grahams.

I can’t believe this dude is going to be THREE in less than a month! Man, time flies!!

    THREE. How did this happen?? I love reading this monthly updates. I don’t know why we stop doing them as our kids get older. It feels like don’t change as fast when they were 0-24 months, but I think we’re just in denial….

      I think they still change just as much, but in different ways. Earlier on, they’re flying through clothing sizes, going from rolling over to sitting up, all these “big” changes and then when they get older, they’re not going through as many physical changes, but what their likes, interests, and preferences sure seem to change just as quickly as the clothing sizes of babyhood gone by!!

        Cole is the same! He was *swimming* in 2T stuff at the beginning of the school year nd is still not quite in 3T. Lulu, on the other hand, is going to pass him
        In size at some point, I think!
