22 Month Snapshot

22 months ago today my sweet little Jaxon Joe came into this world.
I know that this is something I should probably do when he's 2 or should have done when he was 18 months ( I didn't think of it then), but I want to remember Jaxon right now, before the dreaded terrible twos (which start WELL before 2 and no one really tells you!) So here's a snapshot of Jaxon at 22 months:

Weight: 25 lbs 4 oz

Height: 34 inches - 2 ft. 10 inches

Clothes Size: 18/24 months

Shoe Size: 5.5 (except I can't find any, so he wears a 6 and his feet have some wiggle room)

Diaper Size: 4

Favorite TV Show: Handy Manny & Meet the Letters

Favorite Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider ("Ibby") & Hot Dog, the song from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Favorite Lovey: Blue Puppy ("Papi", "Papi Dog")

Favorite Book: ALL of them! He LOVES LOVES LOVES books. A few we read frequently: "Gamma leeping" -The Napping House, "Iya" -Good Night, Gorrilla, "Moose" - Morris the Moose, "Hoe-sy" -Gallop

Favorite Vegetable: Corn
Favorite Fruit: Grapes ("Beeps". Every now and again he says "Bapes".)

Favorite Toy: Puzzles & his new T-Ball set or "cheese ball" as he calls it.

Favorite Snack: Pretzels & Goldfish

Some Things Jaxon can do:

~ say 2-3 word setences: "Up you pees" Help me please (Yeah, I don't get it either), "Moe pees Mama" More please Mama, "Ba-bees ammas" Baby's pajamas, "Anses ouse" Frances' House

~ say some Spanish words! boca = mouth, todo = All done, papa = potato, aqua = water,
oso = bear, noches = good night, pipa = tummy
~ can point to the correct parts of his face when asked in Spanish

~ feed Lucy, play fetch with Lucy, hold Lucy's leash while on a walk
~ hold my hand when we walk across a parking lot. - My favorite!
Jaxon's Personality:
Jaxon is very friendly, yet reserved. He has to observe a situation before he jumps in. Once he has gotten the lay of the land he goes for it! He says hi to everyone, everywhere, but is leary to engage any further until he knows for sure things are okay.
Jaxon is very strong willed and independent. He wants to try things himself first before asking for help. If you try to help him before he has had a chance to explore, watch out!
Jaxon wants things his way and if he doesn't get what he wants, oh dear!. J
axon does not like to be messy! He will be the first to tell you if his hands are icky.
He has been a pretty easy going little guy, but as of late this is changing!
Jaxon is a great sleeper and wonderful eater! His babysitter, Frances, says he hasn't met a food he doesn't like... brussel sprouts included!
Jaxon LOVES his Daddy as much as he loves his Mama, but may love Abu & Lola more.
Jaxon is a very happy, loving, kind hearted little boy and Brian & I are so very proud of him. We say there can't possibly be a boy is loved more than he is.

Wasn't it just a few months ago that Sarah and I were visiting that tiny little 6 pound boy?? My goodness! I loved all the stats! Good for us to keep up with all the new "going-ons" in Jaxon's life! Thanks for sharing! And thanks for raising the best son-in-law I could ever hope for! :)

I can't believe how quickly it goes by. In just a blink they spurt from infants to toddlers to the tweens I have now! We sat down yesterday and just went through all their baby pictures. I miss those times but I also love watching them grow before me into wonderful people. Jaxon is so sweet and handsome! Good job mom & dad!!!
