Madden Jax is 2 (tomorrow)! The saying "the days are long but the years are short" really is true, and I can't believe we no longer have a baby but a full-blown toddler and in some ways a big boy.
Madden is all about anything with wheels-cars, trains, tractors etc. He loves to play outside especially if water, mud, or rocks are involved.
Madden is very laid back and go with the flow. He has his moments, but he hardly ever cries or whines. He is just happy!
Madden still loves to eat (although we have entered the toddler picky eating). Some of his current favorites are any meat (especially taco meat), mac n cheese, pizza, yogurt, strawberries, popcorn, and grapes. For months, he has flat out refused to eat fruits and vegetables (unless I can somehow sneak them in something) but has recently started eating grapes, strawberries, watermelon, and he even ate an apple one day. #wearegettingthere
Some of Madden's current obsessions are: his daddy, his sister who he refers to as "Manny", our dogs, disney CARS, buzz and woody, superheroes, reading books, playing outside, tickling people, bugging people, and tackling people. He is ALL boy.
Madden is talking really well. He has more words than I can count and is stringing them into two word sentences. He can put on some pairs of his shoes all by himself. Speaking of shoes, he loves wearing shoes and is often walking around in someone else's shoes.
At 2 years old, Madden has visited 13 states: California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota. He has lived in two states (CA and IL).
This sweet and crazy little boy has been the perfect addition to our family! We are looking forward to seeing what his third year brings! Happy 2nd Birthday, Madden Jax!
