Here are a few other things about you at this age:

* There is officially no more baby talk. You replaced all of your baby words (like car-car and wa-wa) with the real ones probably within a couple of months after you turned 2 and you learned how to say your "r"s within the last month or two. You used to leave out the "s" any time it was before a consonant (like "outer pace" for "outer space") but you don't do that anymore either. Bittersweet!

* You love, love, love to learn. You are giving me a run for my money and there are many days when I wonder if you are smarter than me. Ha! "Why" comes out of your mouth constantly and I often times find myself scrambling for my phone to look up your questions on the internet. Pretty embarrassing, so please don't tell anybody. ;) Your mind works like your daddy's and you are so interested in how things are made and built and how things work.

* You also have a great memory. You can hear a song once and know the lyrics. You DEFINITELY didn't get that quality from you mom! You get so mad at me when you tell me to sing along and I don't know the words. You always tell me, "yes you DO, Mommy!"

* You are kind and gentle but also very wild and busy and hyper. The only time you are sitting still is if you are strapped into your car seat. And one ounce of sugar amplifies that energy. And I'm not exaggerating!

* You are a picky eater, no question. You decide you hate things before you even try them. You are so dramatic about it as well -- when I make you try something you are gagging before it even gets to your mouth.

* You are finally officially potty-trained!!! WOO HOO!!! We agreed that when you turned 3 you would wear underwear since that's what 3-year olds do. And that morning, you remembered and were really excited about it. You've only had a handful of accidents and I am very proud of you. 

* You are extreeeemely particular about certain things. Not a CLUE where you get that from. Ha! For instance, when we brush your teeth you will have a meltdown if we go out of order: top has to be first, then spit, then bottom, then spit, then eee's, then spit, then tongue, then spit. You get very mad if I try to speed the process up.

* You are always trying to figure out how people are related to each other. You like to refer to them by relationship as well; like, "I want to go to my daddy's mom's house" instead of Mamaw or "my mommy's brother is coming over" instead of Uncle Connor. I love this quirk about you.

* You have quite the imagination. You have started showing interest in pretend play where you take on different roles (doctor, daddy, mommy, trash man, etc). You love to pretend there are monsters chasing us. You have 2 imaginary friends, Conning and Chuck. According to you, Conning has blue hair and Chuck has red hair. I often walk in to find you having conversations with them...I just hope they are good influences and not bad! :) 

* You are sweet and you know how to use it to your advantage. When you really want something you will say, "Pretty please, with a cherry on top? And a cherry on the inside?" or "But Mommy, I love you sooo much." in the sweetest, softest voice. The other day when you were stalling you used the excuse, "But first I need to give my baby a hug and a kiss because she is such a cutie. Mom, look at what a cutie my sissy is!" You, my son, are quite the charmer when you want to be.

I could keep going and going and going on about you. You bring us joy and laughter every single day and I am looking forward to what three holds for us. Love you biggest, forever and always!
