J-5 Rogers Family


My Monkey(s)

All three of my children are escape artists.  Jaydon & Jacoby both escaped from their cribs for the first time at around 15 months.
Jilian is shorter, so it took her a little longer.  She managed her first escape a few weeks ago at just 18 months.  This is with no bumpers, no pillows, and her mattress all the way to the bottom.  I know children who are 2½+ that still don't escape. 
Why can't I be so lucky?

Ignore my hair, please.  I just woke up from a nap and my mommy caught me in the act!

Jilian, however, wins the "monkey award" hands down.  That little girl is so.very.strong! 
Not only does this little fearless child climb out of her crib, she also hangs on anything she finds, swings on the monkey bars by herself, and she can climb ladders like a true construction worker.  It amazes terrifies me to see her sometimes.
Surly she doesn't get her innate gymnastics ability from me!?

Yes, she climbs all by herself, and then tries to jump to the monkey bars.  This is the "terrifying" part!

On the other hand, she also loves to be girly.  She pushes her doll in the stroller up and down the yard over and over and over again.  She takes her out, gives her kisses, pats her head, and continues to push her.  She feeds her, tells her "No, no baby", as if she is scolding her.  Then she laughs at her.  She is constantly moving, climbing, and being busy. 
Perhaps this is why she is a lightweight?

I thought that Jacoby was a little tornado, but she is definitely the busy monkey.  (If any of you know Jacoby, you know that it must be pretty bad if she is busier than him!) 
So to say that I am a busy lady is an understatement.

Nighttime (right now) is blog/me time.  Even then, it is still all about my children.
...and I love every single minute of it.

How could you not?

It amazes me how much her and J4 look alike! So sweet! And yes, I'm one of the lucky ones, Addy has no desire to climb out. I can't imagine!
