Three! 3!!! It’s crazy to think it was 3 short years ago that this little boy came into our lives. In some ways it seems like yesterday and in other ways it seems like he’s always been here.
Beckett, you have grown so much this past year. You are talking up a storm. You say EVERYTHING and use such big words!! You also like to use cuss words and we’re all trying to work on that. Ha! You still have everyone in this house wrapped around that cute little finger of yours!! You can throw a temper tantrum like nobody’s business bringing an entire store to a standstill. But, you can also charm the pants off a complete stranger in the checkout line when you introduce yourself as Romeo. Yes, Romeo. You’ve been telling people that your name is Romeo for the last 6 months.
Eating: You are officially the pickiest eater we’re ever had to deal with. For breakfast your favorite things are chocolate milk, avocado toast with Everything but the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s, pancakes, monkey drinks, yogurt or donuts. You LOVE donuts!!! Lunch is Annies Mac and cheese, french fries, crackers and cheese, pretzel and hummus, soup and recently you’ve taken a liken to chicken nuggets. Dinner consists of you throwing your food all over the place and not really eating at all. Unless we’re having fish. You LOVE fish (almost as much as you love donuts). You’re a fantastic snacker so I try and make your snack as healthy as possible but you still seem to find a cookie or two. Your diet is all over the place these days but you LOVE your vitamins!! Thank God!
Sleep: You finally sleep through the night (90% of the time). You insist on reading at least 5 books at night and then you NEED to be rocked to sleep. Every time I try and put you in your crib you tell me “one more minute” so I sit there and rock you for “one more minute”, which is actually 20. Ha! This happens everyday at nap and bedtime. You are quite the little snuggler so I don’t mind.
You are still obsessed with all of your sisters but these days Lucy is your bff. You follow her all over the house and yard and miss her so much when she’s at school. You’re also really missing your Memmy (Megan) while she’s away at college.
You LOVE to play outside. You love going to the park with daddy and driving your truck around the yard. You like to sing but don’t want anyone singing along with you. You say its annoying. Ha! You are quite the little dancer these days and LOVE Bruno Mars. You still love Mickey Mouse but really enjoy movies. Your favorites this year are Despicable Me 3, Boss Baby, Trolls, Toy Story, Monsters Inc, and Hotel Transylvania. You love playing with cars, batman toys and most recently PJMasks toys. You give the best hugs and kisses and tell all the girls in your life how pretty we are ( we LOVE that ). It’s so fun having sweet conversations with you. You’re turning into such a sweet big boy but you’re still little enough to crawl on our lap and asked to be rocked. I’ll rock you until you are 10 if you want!! Happiest of birthdays, Beckett James!! We love you soooooo much!!
