Jake {2 1/2}

Guys. Please tell me how my tiny little baby boy has already become a 2 1/2 year old. 

I know that I say this every time, but seriously, this age is my favorite.
Jake is like a little sponge. He soaks up so much and is so stinkin' smart.

You guys know from Jake's book post last week that he's always been into reading. Right now, we're also pretty crazy about letters and spelling. He loves to spell his first and last name for people, along with a few other words. I'm casually working with him on the sounds of all the letters since he's able to recognize all of them by sight at this point. It's really more of a fun game at this point since kids his age learn the most through play time.

Jake's also officially into his first year of "school". He's going to our church's Mom's Morning Out two mornings a week.  He adores his teacher, and it seems to be a great fit to have him around other kids his age and to learn a few things about being in a classroom.

We've pretty much finished with Jake's new explorer room {see the design board here} and I hope to share that with you guys next week. As of now Jake is loving having two rooms to play in, haha.

We also had a fun opportunity to do a "Boys Only!" themed adventure shoot with a photographer friend of mine. I feel in love with her little set and the country feel of it all. These prints will go wonderfully in his new little space too!

Let's see, the other stuff... 
Food: He eats meat!! Yes, it took forever, but little man is finally eating some meats.
Snoozing: Still sleeping like a champ. Does about 11 hours at night with a 2 hour nap mid afternoon. 
Potty training: He's fully day time potty trained, which is pretty fabulous too!

We've got some fun plans for Halloween and an awesome to-do list for the fall!
Love watching this handsome boy continue to grow and learn!
