Boy Update - March 2017

I am going to get back into writing updates on the boys here. I had so much fun reading old updates on the blog the other day, and some things I had already let slip my mind.

Little JCrew:
He is now five and a half. He is still bossy and has to be right. He gets upset when he is not. He also gets upset when he lets you down. He is currently in Kindergarten and doing really well. He picked up reading on his own right on his 5th birthday. He continues to love reading. We read stories every night at bedtime, and he and Mr. Brigglesworth then pick out more books to read on their own before falling asleep.

Little JCrew started piano lessons and is really enjoying them. He is a great big brother and loves to show love to his younger brothers. He will sit and talk with them and explain things. He will even read them books.

He loves to help and do things, but it doesn't give much opportunity for Mr. Brigglesworth to help, but Mr. Brigglesworth doesn't mind!

Mr. Brigglesworth:
He is now four and a half. He likes to be creative in coming up with ways to help him avoid work. When I was changing out some outlets in the living room, I asked him to hold the flashlight for me. He did for a while, but then he started thinking of a way to not have to hold it. He found a toy that was the perfect height and he rested the flashlight on it. Smart!

Mr. Brigglesworth use to hate to dress up in nice clothes. He still does. Collared shirts and khakis are not his favorite, but he knows he has to wear them. He can get himself dressed, and he does a good job at putting outfits together. His outfits are usually very loud, but we have discovered that is his personality. He loves his blue plaid shoes.

I recognized it early on, but it becomes more evident every day that he has an artsy side to him. He loves to color and is a perfectionist. He is very good at building with Lego's. Little JCrew prefers following the instructions, and Mr. Brigglesworth throws the instructions away.

Mr. Brigglesworth's love language is gifts. He is already talking about his birthday (in October) and I had to tell him we are not allowed to talk about birthday's right now. (Little JCrew spread this message to his teacher that we can't talk about birthday's). But when you give the smallest of things to Mr. Brigglesworth, his world is perfect. We found some Lego pieces at a consignment sale two weeks ago, and he was so tickled about this ONE PIECE in the new set that was one in his classroom and now he has it at home (it was a simple green long piece. Nothing extraordinary.)

He is now 10 months old with no teeth. But that doesn't stop him from eating. He LOVES food. I finally have a baby that loves macaroni as much as I do! He is also my happiest baby. He gives smiles so freely and laughs so hard. He has found his voice and loves to talk.

When his brothers are loud, so is he. He gets right in the middle of the action and doesn't realize he is so small.

He appears to be an animal lover like Little JCrew. He adores the puppies in the house.

Who is behind the camera?

Oh, it's Mom!

He started crawling early and caught on pretty fast. He pulls up on everything, but no walking yet. And he's not a great sleeper. He's about as bad as Little JCrew. By ten months, Little JCrew was sleeping through the night, but Pfitzer is not there yet.

Pfitzer is also a momma's boy; more so than Mr. Brigglesworth was. I cannot walk by without it upsetting him. If I am completely gone or out of sight, he is okay. But catching a glimpse of the momma, he melts until I hold him.


My sister came to visit the first weekend in February. Her son lives nearby and dropped in to see his mom.

The boys LOVE my sister, Kerry. She spoils them with her undivided attention. And Pfitzer loved my nephew!

Both boys love to take turns taking pictures with my camera. They do pretty good.

Hopefully this has caught us up on the boys. I love having all boys and would continue to have more boys. I am going to try to keep up with monthly updates. There are so many stories to tell on these kids!


  1. Oh the one of the three of them at the Lego table is so cute!! Hard to believe Fitz is 10 months old!!

    1. Thanks, Kelly. I love seeing all three play together. Ruby isn't far behind! She is growing up so quickly. And such a bubbly personality!
