Jenson update: 3.5 years

Jenson update: 3.5 years

Remember how I was going to write Jenson’s 3 year update 6 months ago?  Well, how about 3.5 years instead, even though we are a quite a bit past that now?  I wrote an update about all of us back in March (This is us: […]

Jenson update: 2.75 years

Jenson update: 2.75 years

Jenson is nearing 3 and I can’t believe it.  He’s turned into a little boy in the last few months.  I look at pictures from earlier in the year and can’t believe how much he’s changed!  He doesn’t look like a toddler anymore – he’s […]

From the mouth of Jenson: December 2015

From the mouth of Jenson: December 2015

When Jenson really started talking, he was constantly cracking us up with things he would say, or surprising us with his verbal skillz.  I bought a wall calendar that had blank lines on the top page, and the calendar at the bottom and hung it […]

Jenson Update: 2.25

Jenson Update: 2.25

Since toddlers change less than babies, I wanted to switch to quarterly posts for Jenson after age 2.  This post is nearly 2 months late and reflects up until 2.25 years, shortly after Marlowe was born.  With the addition of Marlowe to the family, life […]

Jenson update: He is 2!

Jenson update: He is 2!

This kid cracks me up so much.  Now that he talks constantly, he says the funniest things and is so entertaining.  It was a busy month – I felt like September just disappeared.  And then I started writing this and October disappeared. I’m going to […]

Sadly I wasn’t too far behind on this post when I started, but I did get the pictures ready in time to add to the post.  And then something happened to September.  Actually, it’s like it didn’t happen at all.  Thus, we have an almost […]

Jenson update: 22 months

We had a big month in July.  Summer and Max flew to Columbus and stayed with us for a few days, our parents came for the weekend (and the big car show), and then we drove up to my parents to visit everyone else (and […]

Jenson update: 21 months

Jenson update: 21 months

It rained nearly the entire month, but we made the best of it.  Luckily he does well playing inside and is happy to sort his toys and read books for hours.  It really wasn’t that bad.  He usually plays for an hour or so before […]

Jenson update: 20 months

Jenson update: 20 months

We spent much of the month getting settled in the house and exploring the area.  We are figuring out our daily routine, and trying to keep things fun.  He’s starting to play by himself much better, which is great, because he can’t always have my […]

Jenson update: 19 months

Jenson update: 19 months

I quit my job, we packed up our house, and moved!  We are still getting adjusted to the house and me being home with Jenson all day.  It’s amazing, but it turns out, I don’t get much done during the day with him.  I’m not […]
