Jonathan - how is he doing?

Jonathan is going to be 4 years old in less than two months. How did that happen? He is growing up way too fast! In the picture above, you may notice that he is well protected with all of his weapons! (a knife on one side of his belt, a handgun on the other side, and his rifle stuck down the back of his pants) It's pretty common to find Jonathan walking around the house just like this!
Jonathan is doing well with his preschool lessons. He loves every minute of the time we spend doing his school. His only complaint is that it doesn't last long enough. He surprises me with his interest and his ability to listen intently. Because he's always been so rough and tumble, I suppose I didn't expect him to be studious as well. He is mostly sweet with his sister, but sometimes gets a little too rough. He is learning self control. (aren't we all?)
He has strange sleep patterns at night - which is why - (I am convinced) that he still naps each day. We thought we had gotten him out of his habit of coming downstairs and sleeping on the couch, and then he started it up again. We worked on him again with it, and just found out the other day, that he's *probably* still doing it sometimes. Aaron told us that when he got up the other night to go to the bathroom and get a drink of water, that Jonathan wasn't in his bed. So, we are thinking that he's still coming downstairs sometimes ... and then going back up to bed before everyone else gets up. I am going to have to start taping a baby monitor to him just to keep track of him.
I love this boy so much. He has the deepest, darkest most puppy doggish eyes and his smile warms me from head to toe. I can't get enough of his hugs.
On a side note ... he started Awana Cubbies and thinks it's AWESOME! But he still wants to wear his Puggles shirt everyday.

  2. Love the update! It totally cracks me up to see him "strapped" like that. It's neat to wonder how God will use our little ones for His glory with their talents, abilities, and passions now, isn't it? So great that he is loving school...then again with you as a teacher what's not to love!

  3. When I see the picture of him with all his guns, 4 words come to mind: "Just like his daddy." So cute!

    PS. I love having him in Cubbies! He did so well last week!
