These little blessings are now 2 1/2 and 7 months old! I haven't done an update on David in a few months, as I've been busy trying to do a monthly one for Jonathan! I knew it would be too difficult to do both boys each month, so I figured I'd just wait and do a big update for David
when he turned 2 1/2 :) This month (March), he turned 2 1/2 on the 20th and Jonathan turned 7 months on the 14th. So here is an update on both of them....
David hasn't changed too much in height/weight since he turned 2, but he is taking on more of a little boy look (long, lanky arms and legs, not as much "baby fat" (not that he ever had much of that to begin with!), and a leaner, more defined face). He has become more and more spiritually aware the past few months which has been amazing to see! One night, leaving church, we saw a sky full of stars. Daddy said, "David, do you know Who made the stars? God did!" Now every time David sees stars he says, "God ah pa stars!" (his sentence structure is so funny...when he doesn't know what word to fill in, he makes it up - usually ah, pa, be, etc).
He loves getting dressed up for church and getting his hair combed and sprayed with hairspray ("sue-play"). He loves when he gets to wear a tie like Daddy :) He will go to the mirror after getting all dressed up, smile at his reflection and say "I handsome!" He learned to pray and loves to pray for meals. I taught him word by word, a simple prayer - he'd repeat each word after me - so now, he has it memorized and prays in a choppy way: "Thank you...Jesus...for my....food. AMEN!!!!!" Then later, we added on "And for....Daddy, Mommy, David and Johnny. AMEN!" He also likes to pray before bed, copying what we say "Thank you...for this...day....and for....all the....fun...I had...etc" :) He hasn't memorized any of those prayers as of yet!
He loves music and loves to sing - we never actually taught him how to sing or the words to songs...he has been picking it up on his own just from hearing the music playing as we drive. We have a Patch the Pirate "Sunday School Sing-along" cd that he LOVES and he sings along with it in the van! It is so precious to watch his love for music grow (this was always something we hoped our children would love and take interest in...since music is such a huge part of our lives and ministry and will be for them too one day!)
David can read a few words (just by memory) and he LOVES learning new ones...sometimes we'll be sitting there eating breakfast and he points out letters on the cereal box and wants to know what word they say. Once we tell him, he's pretty good at remembering. So the next morning, he points them out again and "reads" the word! It's pretty amazing to watch!
We're so proud of him and his love for learning :)
This little munchkin is growing up too fast! He has entered the world of food this month and LOVES it! There isn't anything he won't try and so far, there isn't anything he doesn't like :) He also can sit up great now...he loves to sit with David and watch him play! David will hand Jonathan toys so he can feel like he's "playing" along too! It's super cute to watch :) He also said his first word this month! "Dada"! David said "Mama" so I guess it's only fair that Daddy get his name first this time!
gorgeous baby blues! :)
We sure are thankful for these happy, sweet, healthy growing boys! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read up on how they are doing!
