Farewell, 2009

Chad and I are sitting on the couch, I'm blogging and he's watching football. I'm not sure we'll make it to the New Year's Eve shows...but we're still awake and it's almost 9:00. Which, crazily, is late for us. I thought I would go back to January of this year to find a couple of pictures of Jordan just to see how different he is. He really isn't all that different, but he does look so much more like a boy than he did at the beginning of 2009.
I took this picture when we took Jordan for his first ever ride on a train. He loved it. I have a video of him saying, "Choo choo" when I asked him what a train said. He talked back then, but he talks sooooo much now. It's crazy.
We have been drinking lots of hot chocolate lately. Mostly, he just likes to use the spoon to scoop up the marshmallows floating on top and then ask for more marshmallows, but that's okay. This is Jordan now, December 2009.
The most fun part about the age he is right now is that he can really play. He loves to play hide and seek and he really gets it. He can be really quiet...until you say, "Jordan, I can't find you, where are you?" a few times and then he says, "I'm in here, Mom!" He can play tag now. He'll run up to me and say, "Tag, you're it!" and then take off running. He is also getting a kick out of Chad's slapstick kind of humor. He'll bash himself in the head with an empty water bottle and pretend he's knocked out and Jordan just cracks up in giggles. This is Jordan's latest hiding spot!
It's wild that 2009 is coming to an end, but I am excited for 2010. Is it bad that I'm already dreaming of summer? Being off for two weeks is just awesome...but never enough. I'm always left longing for my lazy summer to come back around. The beginning of the new year means a new American Idol and new Lost episodes. We rely on American Idol to get us through this next part of the school year and through to summer. Jordan will turn three in May, I'll be 30 in June (yikes/yippee(?)), and, probably most exciting of all, we're expecting a new baby on July 7th (definite woo hoo!)!!! So bring on 2010!!!!

May 2010 be a wonderful year for your whole family! It's fun to see how Jordan has changed. He looks even more like you now!

Isn't it crazy how much kids change in the year. I love seeing the pictures different people have posted on their blogs of their kids last year and this year. It is so neat to see how much they have grown. I thought Jordan looked so grown up in those train posts and now look at him! He is a little boy!

Funny. I was looking at old Alex photos from 2009. Remarkable how the boys have grown.

I can see a big difference in your little man from the beginning of 2009!

I don't blame you for wishing for summer especially if you have most of it off. Happy 2010. x
