T is crazy. CRAZY, I tell you. He never ever stops moving. He runs everywhere he goes. He climbs on and jumps off of everything he can. He has no fear. Keeps us on our toes, this one. 

He is quite the typical 3-year-old. He has some pretty bad tantrums/screaming fits. Nowhere near as bad as Grayson at this age, but it's still no fun. Oh, he tests me. But oh, is he CUTE. He really can be SO sweet. And everything he says is so darn adorable in his tiny little voice. When he says "I wuv you, Mommy!" I just die.  

He corrects anyone that doesn't call him by his full name.  For instance, if I say "Good morning, honey!", he says "No I 'honey'.  I Tatcher!" 

He is still so skinny. He only weighs 26 lbs.  But he's growing, and he's healthy. He's actually a really good eater -- he will usually try whatever Steve and I are eating for dinner. 

He idolizes Gray, and does everything he does. He's a trooper, and keeps trying at everything until he's done everything his big brother does. 

He's very close to being potty trained. Still some accidents, but doing pretty well. Half the battle is getting him to put the unders on (he almost always demands a diaper), but once he has them on, he does pretty well. 

I could not imagine our life with this crazy kid around. I love him to death. He makes life interesting. :)
