Since Jared is three, it's that time to post about him-- I can't believe how BIG he is:
Weight: 34 lbs
Height: 38 inches--- just a little too short for some of the Disney rides next week
Hair: light brownish red-- same
Eyes: dark amber brown-- same
Teeth: has had them all for long time
Likes: still: Annabelle, his blue blankie, Daddy, Mama, playing with cars, trains and friends, spinning, dancing, anything Disney, nursery---- ADDED: singing all the time, his new bed, Star Wars, playing any kind of game, helping Daddy in the yard, asking TONS of questions
Dislikes: Annabelle (ha), flies in the house, the dark, tense moments in movies
Favorite Food: The boy can't get enough of Japanese food, burgers, fries, pizza, broccoli, carrots, oranges, and pears. He still won't go anywhere near peas, mushrooms or raw tomatoes.
Favorite Toys: any car or train, v-reader, stuffed dragon, his new Luke and speeder from Star Wars, dinosaurs and Woody and Buzz.
Favorite Books: Star Wars ABC (sense a theme), Cars and Thomas look and find books, scriptures (seriously--must read every night or a fit ensues), and Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?
Favorite Things to Watch: Still loves Mickey, Dinosaur Train, Phineas & Ferb, Thomas the Train and now loves watching the same 12 episodes of Shaun the Sheep. He also likes Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers on DVD. :)
Other New Tricks: prays by himself--- he says most of the prayers in the house right now. He usually blesses the food, all of the family, and that he'll be a good boy. He LOVES to sing... he currently hits are "A Pirate's Life for Me," humming the Star Wars and Indiana Jones themes, and singing the Mickey Mouse song. He still has issues with getting to the toilet to poop on time, but it's few and far between, so I like to think he's mostly done. He loves to ask questions and loves to be validated (I hear 'right mommy?' all the time when he's trying to boss Annabelle around).
What's next: Disneyworld in 6 days. Preschool in the fall.
How he drives us crazy: He's still as stubborn as ever. He also is very emotional; the littlest thing can trigger a meltdown--- but that comes with the territory of being a preschooler. He also thinks he's hilarious when he shouts--- oui! He bosses Annabelle around all the time and has started tattling on her when she misbehaves.... oh, siblings!
Why he's so awesome: He's the biggest helper. He L-O-V-E-S to help with anything. He's also a great big brother; he's always concerned for Annabelle and loves to smother her in loves and kisses. In fact, he's generally concerned about all around him. He is also really aware of spiritual things; he doesn't go a day without saying his prayers. Even though his nature is loud, he is one of the sweetest boys.
