My little chatterbox
All day long I have the privilege to spend my days side by side with the funniest, happiest, kindest person I know. The more Jasper talks and the longer his sentences become the more interesting our conversations become and the more funny moments I have to share at the end of the day. Here are a few examples:
While shopping at Target Jasper was furiously tossing out items from our shopping cart onto the floor. I encouraged him "Jasper, pleaser be a good boy." Surrounded by a crowd of people he replied, "Like Daddy?" "Yes," I said "just like Daddy"
After he woke up from a nap I asked him what he wanted to do. He thought for a moment and the said, "Get in the car, go to the store, go to Target and buy food" Yep, sounds like a typical day of errands around here.
When Jasper does something mischievous or naughty he quickly yells out "Time Out" or "Go to bed" Although I have never threatened him with going to bed he must feel that would be an appropriate consequence for his actions.
We often walk to construction sites for entertainment. He proudly knows all the names of each piece of equipment. Out of the blue one day he stood against the plastic fence and proclaimed "Trucks cheese" This was the first time he had ever asked me to take his photo. As a mother and photographer, I could not have been prouder.
Jasper thinks book stores are like the library. When we are at the bookstore he likes to load up his arms with books and tell me "Go pay" I think he thinks the library card is a credit card because they look the exact same.
I know I've been saying this at every age, but two and a half is proving to be my all time favorite age so far. He is funny and witty, likes to make mischief and yet eagerly hops up on my lap to read books and gives me the best hugs and kisses. He is very good at entertaining himself, loudly signs songs to himself and still is my little bookworm. He is such a sponge and growing and changing every. single. day. It is incredible to witness.
