Nicholas Stephen at three years old.


Those eyelashes. I don't know where they came from but I'm jealous ;)

He got sick a couple weeks ago and the hardest part about it was keeping him away from his baby brother. Every time he sees him he says "awwwwwwwww he's SO cuuuute!" and then asks to hold him. Even mid-tantrum, he'll put his whining on hold to come over and kiss his baby brother on the forehead. And then start up the whining again. haha. Also, once when he was sleeping in our bed, he woke up just enough to kiss his baby brother lying next to him and the fell quickly back to sleep. It's all pretty funny to me. He loves his baby brother. There's no question about it :)

He talks really well now. Like his grammar is right on and everything. And he remembers almost everything I tell him...a good thing and a bad thing too ;) He informed me that we need to build a bridge across the Atlantic Ocean so that we can visit Grandma Lisa and "Papa" Tracy. He was looking at a map of the world and I pointed out where we live in Washington and then pointed to where his grandparents live in Germany. He noticed all the water in between and said "We can't get wet! We can't swim!" So a bridge is obviously a logical solution :)

He currently does not like going to church because he doesn't like his new sunbeam class (tear). We ask him why and he says "I don't want to sit in my chair!!!!" So sad. Going from playing with toys in nursery for two hours straight to sitting in his chair and listening for two hours straight hasn't gone over too well :/

Potty training: there's absolutely no update. He just doesn't want to. And I don't want to make him til he's ready.


  1. Haha, I love this update. He is a very smart little boy! I think a bridge is a brilliant solution. And those lashes -- swoon. I'm jealous too. He is so very handsome. I love that he'll stop a tantrum to kiss Logan -- Haha. That is so so adorable!

  2. This post made me laugh so hard! What a complete cutie!
