i can't believe he is 3!

Jacob turned three a couple weeks ago. He is growing and learning so much.

He likes:
diggers (we have to drive out of our way if we know of a construction site, especially if they are moving)
building with his blocks
playing outside (tee-ball, digging in the dirt with his diggers, picking up rocks and sticks)
singing (he can sing ABCs, rock a bye baby, twinkle twinkle, zaccheus, itsy bitsy spider, if you're happy and you know it, and others)

He speaks very clearly and with a great vocabulary. The doctor said at his three year appt that he had the verbal skills of a four year old. the only funny thing he does is to reverse all his blends that start with an s (sk, st, sp etc) so spider becomes puhsider, screws are kuhsrews, etc.) its actually pretty adorable. i'm sure he will eventually grow out of it so i'm just enjoying this little idiosyncrasy for now it makes singing itsy bitsy spider that much more fun (spider! spout! over and over) 
he has started to make a weird face when posing for pictures. knucklehead!

he has an active imagination and is very physical. he loves running, jumping, stomping, etc. very much all boy.

he can be very sweet and kind. he helps me around the house by unloading the silverware from the dishwasher, helping sort and change laundry from washer to dryer and dryer to couch (the folding zone), sweep (give the kid a Swiffer and he WILL get all the cat hair up), entertaining Aliza when I am cooking or otherwise occupied, and helping me cook by stirring and measuring.

he is a pretty great kid. i'm so lucky to be his mommy!
