And I would have gotten away with it too, but for my irrepressible love of Brie cheese and baguette bread!

Jack hits two at the end of April, and he's showing some definite '2' behavior. He's definitely been sporting a "my way or the highway" attitude these past few weeks. Anyway, an update on our little man at (almost) two:

Jack will grin on cue for a photo (see above).

Jack will eat the following: PB&J sandwiches, wheat bread, yogurt, Goldfish, chips, corn and grape tomatoes. Oh, and cookies. Sometimes waffles, muffins, french toast sticks, black beans, refried beans, cheese, fish sticks, fries and chicken nuggets. All other food is subject to review, and there is no guarantee that it will be eaten, even if it's from the above groups. As a general rule, he's ditched the highchair and booster seat and prefers to sit in a regular chair like everyone else. He loves milk, and his favorite juice is Berry Juicy Juice.

Jack says the following words: "Blue" (sounds like a cross between Boo, Blue, and Brew), "Bye Bye", "Mama", and has a Vroom Vroom noise that he uses as a noun when he wants his truck or car. He can sign "More", "Please", and "One" and is very good at pointing.

Jack LOVES Veggie Tales (that's where the blog title came from - I'm not a total weirdo, but Addam and I almost have that particular DVD memorized and I love that line). Those veggies are a daily obsession for the little man. He's also a fan of Playhouse Disney, specifically The Wiggles, Little Einstein, and Higglytown Heroes.

Jack loves trucks and Legos. We're not potty training yet, but he picked out Nascar underwear at KMart over Bob the Builder and Spongebob. His lovey is a pair of my pants. He's not a big fan of teddy bears and other stuffed animals, but after seeing the Care Bear's Journey to Joke-A-Lot movie on Disney the other day, he's down with his one Care Bear. I think he's got Champ Bear, but his is orange and not blue like in the cartoon.

Jack used to love to read but now he only asks us to read at bedtime. His current favorite bedtime stories are The Pokey Little Puppy and his Clifford Easter book. He sleeps in a toddler bed with his Nana-made Clifford bedding. He generally likes to sleep with his aforementioned, beloved blue pants and a couple of trucks.

Jack loves music. In addition to Veggie Tales and Playhouse Disney tunes, you can find him dancing to such selections as Foo Fighters' "DOA", Weezer's "Beverly Hills", and Jerry Lee Lewis's "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On".

Jack likes to pick out his own clothes, and can match colors. He knows his colors very well. His favorite color seems to be blue. He enjoys expressing himself artistically through stickers, glue, and sometimes coloring.

He recently discovered the joys of the Race Car shopping cart (or buggy, as we often say down in the South - I'm guilty) and now expects it each and every time we go to Kroger, along with his cookie.

Jack loves to play outside, and is getting this from his parents, grandparents and aunt for his birthday, and he has this from his Nana and Papaw waiting to be put together. For now, he's quite happy just wandering aimlessly outside, putting rocks, gravel, sticks and leaves into his dump truck. He never wants to wear a hat except for this one time when it was 66 degrees outside:


Thanks for indulging my "About my Awesome Child" post!

He is so darn cute! Love his curls. He's going to have a rockin' good time with his new cool outdoor toys. If we lived a little closer we'd so be crashing your back yard! :)

Your little man is so adorable. I love the name Jack. I wanted to name my eight month-old that, but my husband liked Cole better and I finally gave in. His curls are so cute too!
