3 Years Old

Well, my baby is three!
Who gave you permission to do that?
You are one wild and crazy boy. Daddy and I are always saying that we jinxed ourselves when we named you because you are completely living up to your name. It's pretty fun most of the time, but since you are a flight risk you are strapped into the stroller a lot when we're out in public and you don't like it one bit.
You have been in speech therapy for the last year and are been booted out of the program now that you are 3. Since I'm actually writing this post I April (sorry) I can say that you have been evaluated by the school district and you are actually starting pre school today (4.4.17)! Which made me happy so you wouldn't have so long before next school year to keep receiving help with your speech. Speech therapy was kind of on and off with how much you progressed. We went through a few different therapists because of one moving, one having a baby and one just being temporary while the other was on maternity leave. So it was a little hard to keep a good routine with you and them and I feel it made you regress a little. But the last few sessions before we were all done were so great it made me sad it was ending. You still don't say much (in English) and a lot of your words are in your own language. But you have many more words than you did just a few months ago, so it is going great. In pre school you will also be working with a speech therapist to keep helping you progress. One thing is that you have always understood everything that anyone says to you, so that has never been a worry to us. You are getting even better at requests and demands and understanding more complex sentences other than just 2 or 3 words.
Right now your words are (that I can remember, I'm sure I'll forget some):
Da-ee (daddy)
Hi-hi (monster trucks)
Weeoo weeoo (anything with a siren or lights)
Booaah (cars or trucks)
beebee (baby)
bump pa (grandma and grandpa)
how (house)
nigh nigh (night night)
bee (big)
rawr rawr (dinosaurs)
hoo hoo (trains)
moe (more)
yis (yes)
pee (please)
hee hoo (thank you)
You also have noises and signs for other things:
you use sign language for:
All Done
Milk (sometimes)
Help (sometimes)
and your other actions and sounds:
mmm-mmm (with your lips kind of puckered)-drink
rubbing your belly-hungry
You are also getting really good at pointing to different body parts which has taken some work.
You love to watch your tablet and your favorite videos are anything with monster trucks, firetrucks and police cars.
You are growing like a weed and have been catching up to Tanner really quickly! Right now you wear a size 9 shoe, 3T pants and 2 and 3T shirts. It is so crazy because you two are only 1 size apart from each other. Pretty soon you'll be able to just share clothes and I'll be able to combine your dressers... That is until you pass up your brother and grow bigger than him. This will be interesting!
Weight: 30 pounds
Height: 38 inches
You are a great kid and are developing in leaps and bounds. You are so sweet but can also stand your ground with your brother and cousins. So proud of who you are becoming, and we are the luckiest to be your parents! We are so excited to see what this next year will bring!
Mommy and Da-ee
