Jude Boy,

What can I say? You're wild but sweet. You scream "No way Jose!" and "Mommy, you look so pretty." You can be infuriating one minute and melt our hearts the next. You're smart and can remember just about everything. You love school and all of your friends. Your teacher tells us you're a leader and are constantly helping others. You are very concerned with what others are doing and especially love people watching. You have what is called selective listening. Sometimes we forget that you are only two and half and we expect you to behave better than we realistically should. I have to constantly remind myself that you are only two and you are learning the ways of the world and it is my job to help in teaching you. It takes more time and patience to teach than to dictate and do. You test and test; then test again.  You are kind and caring. Every night before you head downstairs for bed you make sure my nightlight is turned on for me. You make sure everyone has something to eat and drink and make sure you and no one else is left out. You are especially kind and sweet to your baby sister. She gets more kisses from you than anyone else. Right now you are into Thomas the Train and Cars. Everywhere we go you must take at least one toy with you. You remember every single toy, car and train you own so loosing one, even momentarily, is not an option. Though you are becoming more and more patient. You also remember who has given you each toy and you rember to thank everyone quite often. You're favorite food is chocolate. And you already have your request in for your birthday cake - chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles. Last night we shared chocolate cake and some ice cream for dessert and may have added a request of ice cream to go along with that birthday cake. You are fine to let Mommy and Daddy pick out your clothes but you like to accessorize. Your hats, cowboy boots and rain boots are amongst your favorites. You've been constantly sick, like constantly. Though "they" assure us this is normal your first year of preschool. Rightly so, ear infections, pink eye, the stomach flu, colds, sore throats, croup and coughs make you a tinge bit crabby. It's been a rough winter. When you're happy, everyone around you is happy. And when you're unhappy everyone around you is miserable. You make sure. You are an intelligent, inquisitive and innocent little boy. I hope you stay that way for a very long time to come.

Love,
Mommy
