What's this big guy up to?
- Still around 26 pounds (found this out at a recent appointment for yet another ear infection).
- Clothes - working into mostly 2T but still has a few 12 month and 18 month stuff that fits comfortably.
- Shoes - just bought his first pair of size 7's a few weeks ago. Big feet like his Daddy!
- A tiny bit more adventurous with food but not much. But we're thankful that he'll at least eat chicken now.
- Repeats everything. We try to be very careful.
- Still loves trucks. We are anticipating the day that it not longer comes out "fruck".
- Very independent. And opinionated.
- Knows the rules but loves to test his limits.
- Loves to try walking around the house in our shoes.
- No longer answers "no" to everything. We've discovered that real answers are nice.
- Watches more TV lately (not thrilled about this). Usually whatever is on Nick Jr. for about half hour in the morning and can generally talk us into 30-45 minutes of Monster Jam in the evening. He has started noticing Disney movies when they're on and will also sit still for Dinosaur Train.
- Is becoming more able to tell us when something hurts or if he's not feeling well. Bumps are now healed with a kiss :)
- A few months back I found an article titled 25 Words Every Toddler Should Know by Age 2. Since then I've gone back to the list and am very happy that Grant uses all 25 regularly...and a whole lot more. He's a big talker.
- Loves to play outside. Will always choose outside over inside. I love that.
- Favorite playground attraction: the slide. Working his way up to the big boy swings.
- Big on books. Loves it when Mama reads to him but will go through them on his own too. I'm so happy he's a book lover.
- No longer sleeps well in our bed (but loves to play on it). Prefers his crib over anywhere else to sleep.
- Will make us aware when he has to pee (and sometimes poop) and wants to sit on the potty. He just rarely every goes there.
- I'm pretty sure this child could live on cheese (he totally gets that from me).
- Says I love you ("I low loo") a lot now. It's awesome.
I'm about to have a sappy-mom-moment. Sorry.
But when I get past my moment's of "What happened to my baby?" I get to see the awesomeness of toddler-hood. It was recently pointed out how dramatic Grant can be. It's probably my fault, I totally encourage that and have probably taught it too him. And I absolutely L-O-V-E his excited screams. I encourage those too. Doesn't everyone want a happy child? Well, I'm lucky. I have one. And watching him experience new things or get excited about the not-so-new...well, it's pretty amazing.
This is probably my last post for at least a week (unless I figure out mobile blogging). We're leaving in a few days on our first real family vacation. I'm so excited!
