John Phillip Ramsey III (or Squirt) is the 14-month-old younger brother of Jessi and Becca Ramsey. He was born in late June at Oakley General Hospital. The nurses nicknamed him "Squirt" because he was the smallest baby born in the hospital, weighing only 5 pounds, 8 ounces at birth. As an infant, he had colic, was bald, and scrawny.


Squirt is of African-American descent and has gigantic brown eyes. He is learning how to walk; he has a wheelie walker, but he doesn't really need it. Squirt is into everything and is going through the "terrible twos" before he's 2 years old.

Squirt is learning to feed himself and his newest trick to pretending to sneeze. He knows how to say: "who" (for "shoe") and "whing" (for "swing"). His new favorite word is "no." He also says "ah-den" (for "again") and calls his belly button "ba" and likes to show it off. Because Squirt is learning to talk, he can’t pronounce words correctly. He says Jessi like "Dess-eee”, and says swing like “whing”. His favorite food is macaroni & cheese.

In book 103, he gets into a car accident and is hurt. His back is hurt and has a concussion, and had to stay in the hospital for a week. At one point, an IV was in his back draining fluids, and he was in the hospital until the day after Christmas.

He is a very happy and cheery toddler. He still sleeps in a crib.


  • Attended a talent show in the Pikes' backyard with Jessi & Becca
  • Was involved in a car accident with his older sisters & aunt; fell out of his car seat and sustained a concussion which required him to be admitted to the hospital for a few days, but later recovers.
