Growing Up Three

Not to be left behind, Briggs also continues to grow and change so quickly.  He is making new connections, saying new words, and doing new things on an almost daily basis.

He is now a sturdy, steady, all-the-time walker.
He knows how to turn around to crawl off furniture and down stairs.
He loves to climb on playground equipment and go down the slides on his stomach.
He can feed himself with silverware.
He has over a hundred words that he uses to express himself or identify things.
He LOVES cars, trucks, tractors, trains, and buses.
He loves to play with his sisters, chasing them and wrestling with them and always wanting to be included.
He now goes in the church nursery without crying.
He usually lets us know when he has a messy diaper.
He is starting to do simple puzzles.
He sings songs like "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", "Baby Mine", and "Let It Go."
He says grace before meals.
He asks if his food is hot by pointing and saying "hot?"
He will say "night night" and "love you" at night before bed.
He now sleeps with his stuffed Cookie Monster, snuggling it as he goes to sleep.
He gets upset if someone is having a cookie or ice cream or treat and he doesn't have one.

My snuggly, sweet, lovely baby boy is making his way into toddler-hood.  It's fun and exciting and sad all at the same time.
