Jeremy Update: 2.5 Years*

I love his smile!

Starbucks Date

Jeremy is weighing in at 27 pounds! He stayed at 24 pounds for so long! I'm not sure where he gained those 2 pounds! He is tall!

Cute little chair Gigi and Uncle Chase got him for Christmas

Shaving lessons with Daddy

Overall, he is a pretty healthy kid! We are going through a few rough days because of sickness right now. Read the full story here. We think he has some sort of blood sugar issue. He is very temperamental when it's low. We make sure he eats as soon as he wakes up in the morning and from his nap. He gets snack in between breakfast and lunch. We always have a snack bag packed when we go out. As long as we keep up on it, we are ok. If we forget, he looses patience very quickly. We can recognize the signs now! We haven't felt it necessary to take him to the doctor for it. We borrowed a friend's glucometer. He was registering on the high side of low blood sugar and we think if we can control it by food there is no need to medicate him.


This kid is a good sleeper! He wakes up at about 7am. We play all day! Naps from 1pm - 3:30pm. I have to wake him up or he stays awake at bedtime for too long! Then bed at 8:30pm. He wakes up once or twice to go potty. Then goes back to sleep.
He has moved into his "big brother room" so that Capri can have the nursery (Ocean Room).


Jeremy has just started loving to play dress up. We only have a fireman costume (go figure) but he loves to wear it and get in his fire truck (thanks so much Shilo!). His imagination impresses us each day! He is wearing 2T clothes, finally! We have put most all of the 18 months clothes in the attic.


We have quite the social butterfly! He loves to be around people. When he comes home from The Moerer's house on Wednesday nights, our entire small group (18 people) is here. He jumps in the middle and starts telling stories, cracking people up!
His best friends remain to be Dillon and Drew. They are so cute together! Jeremy says their favorite thing to do it play in the dirt together.
Our trip to the zoo.
He was being a lion.

Brotherly/Sisterly Love

The kindness that he shows his sister is amazing! He always asks to hold her. Watches for spit up, drool, anything she may choke on! I just love to watch his love grow for her!
The other day he didn't know where she was (he always asks, he wants to make sure he always knows!). He said, "Mommy, where is Capri? Did you squeeze her til she popped?" I giggled. He was very serious! I have to admit, I say that when I'm hugging her! "You are so cute, I could squeeze you til you pop." I may need to change that!

Jeremy loves to line all his trucks up, in the same order.....

And create a huge pile up!
Then he puts them back in his closet, in the same order!

Jeremy is a very good eater. He has been taught to eat what we put on his plate. His favorite is avocado. He loves crasins, too. Lately he has been giving us a hard time with vegetables. I don't think it's because he doesn't like them. I think it's because he wants to see if we really mean he has to eat it all!


His creative mind blows me away! I love to hear and interact with him while he is pretending! He loves construction! We have been watching endless videos on YouTube of different pieces of equiptment. His favorite (by far) is an excavator!
