I know, I haven’t done one of these in a long while, but I just can’t do the 2 year old post without writing about this past month.
You LOVE to be outside. You love the slide, the pool, watering momma’s flowers, and chasing us with the hose. You love your Lightning McQueen cozy coupe, going for nightly walks in the wagon with us, and going with daddy in his truck.
Your vocabulary is starting to expand. You now say “what’s this?” (uuhhs-dis?) and “want that” (wah dat!) and you answer “yeah yeah!” to just about everything. You can’t quite say “no”, but you shake your head no or push things away if you don’t want them. I am not in a hurry to hear NO from you just yet!
Your molars have been the nastiest little boogers in the past few weeks. The top left one is finally through, the top right is almost there, and just the other day, Grandma Sarah noticed your bottom left is very swollen. It’s turned you into even a better sleeper than you were before (hello 4 hour naps and 12 hour nights!) and you stay in a generally good mood during the day. You are quick to show us when they hurt, though, and I hate that for you! I know it will be over soon!
I tried to put you down for a nap in your big boy bed the other day, and that was a giant fail. You got excited, tucked your animals in with you, and I thought it was going to be a piece of cake. But when I started to leave the room, you looked very scared and confused. We aren’t going to rush you!
You have eaten a TON this month and are absolutely growing. Your favorites include blueberries, kiwi, bananas, strawberry’s, Oreos (ha!), mac and cheese, pizza, green beans, yogurt, and dry cereal. Oh, and french fries. But I think all toddlers like french fries! I am trying to get you to incorporate other foods as well (hello, more veggies!) but so far, you are just content with your circle of familiar foods.
This past week you have been an amazing sleeper. Like, 4.5 hour naps and 12+hour nights. I am not complaining, but I am wondering when I will go in your room and you will look two feet taller! I am certain between your molars and a possible growth spurt that this is the explanation for your long sleeping stretches. It’s a good thing, because I have gotten a lot done in the past week and still have had time to rest!
I love you, moose.
