The Life of Nicklas: 3 year old special!

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

It is still so hard for me to believe that I have a 3 year old.
I am going to do a little update on what Nicklas is up to as a 3 year old little boy.

We had his 3 year well check last Friday and at first he was doing wonderful, but then the 3 year old devil came out.  He did not want the doctor to touch him or talk to him or anything!  And he didn't even have to have shots at this appointment.  We had a doctor that was filling in for our normal doctor so I blame it on that... he was old and even carried an old timers doctors bag.  Just wasn't what we were used to.  

Height is 3' 2.66" = 79%
Weight is 33 pounds = 72%

Nicklas has started having an opinion about what he is wearing... and here I thought having a boy would be easy when it came to clothes.  I will show him what he is wearing for the day and he tells me he wants something else.  Here is an example of our morning conversation:
Me:  Look Nicklas here is your Pete the Cat shirt.
Nicklas: No, Batman.
Me: No, look Pete the Cat is groovy! (All you Pete the Cat lovers should know why I use the word groovy)
Nicklas: No, no, no, no (while waving his hand at me) I like Batman.... and monster trucks.
Me: (wrestles kid to get Pete the Cat on him) No, no... Pete the Cat. 
Nicklas:  (Walks away like nothing happens, gets to school and shows off his Pete the Cat shirt like its the best thing in the world.)

Another example.  I bought these Real Tree camo boots at walmart this weekend (yes, cutest things ever) and Nicklas loved them.  Saturday night my parents invited us over for BBQ (my husband and his friends were already at my parents helping put up a fence).  I told Nicklas it was time to go so we needed to put on our tennis shoes.  Nicklas tells me, "no mommy, I wear my new boots."  It was 90 degrees outside.  It was also a Saturday in which Nicklas didn't take a nap.  So I did what any other good mom would do.  Nicklas wore his shorts, t shirt, and freaking camo boots!

He really is so sweet right now (75% of the time).  He is very affectionate and wants to talk to everyone.  He has started putting his arm around my head and saying "I got you."  I say this to him while he is fighting nap time.  I love it.

He is also a wild boy.  He loves to dance and jump and run and fall and say 'I ok.'  If he drops something or one of his toy cars falls he will laugh and say 'oops, sorry!'  He is very good about saying Please, Thank you, Your welcome and excuse me.  He will also bless you if you sneeze, cough or burp!

He is a lover of all boy things.  He loves monster trucks, fast cars, and sports.  He loves Paw Patrol, Bubble Guppies, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Team Unizoom, and he still loves Dora! (I try not to think to much in to this, I mean, he loves Boots and all the singing!)

Nicklas can count to 30, knows all of his colors, knows phonics for all letters of the alphabet and sings it all the time, and knows shapes that I have to look up on google.  Really, what the freak is a rhombus!

He also throws the most over the top tantrums.  We visit time out a lot.  I will give him a warning then it is straight to time out if he does it again.  I set our kitchen timer for 3 minutes then will go and explain to him what he did wrong, make him tell me he is sorry, then we hug!

He is the sweetest, funniest, most loving 3 year old boy in the world.  
I am so thankful God chose me to be his mommy.
