Brady:22 Months

I've had good intentions of updating this blog regarding Brady.  I thought about it at 18 months, 20 months, then 21 months...just goes to show how quickly time is fleeting.

Blink and it's gone.

So before he turns TWO (gulp), here's a little update on how the little man is doing.  Two???  How can that be possible??

Speaking of two, we are definitely entering into the land of two's.  We speak our mind and we let you know when we don't approve of the ridiculous rules or boundaries set by said parents.  But we are also growing by leaps & bounds every single day.

This is such a fun age, but oh so trying.

I'm guessing he weighs 22 pounds.  Size 4 diapers.  Size 7 (yes SEVEN) shoe.  He can still wear some 5/6 shoes.  We just moved into the 7's.  Clothes range anywhere from 12 months to 18 months.  Most bottoms are to short since he keeps growing up and up!

Teeth - a lot of them.  Almost a full mouth.

Talking - all day long.  Mostly words and a few phrases: momma, mommy, daddy, Reno, Coco, Mimi, Papa, Nenna (nina), D, meow, kitty, bug kill, pee-ple (people), hit, tractor, choo choo, whoo-woo, Aggies, ball, B (he calls himself B, ha!), outside, side, beep beep, puhkin (pumpkin), pas-toe (pasta)...and that's all I can think of right now.
You still love bath time and now prefer a bath over a shower.  You went through a shower phase there for a while.  Night time routine could be so better, but mommy & daddy just go with it.  That's just where we are in life.  You still get a bath every night around 8ish, daddy normally does this and then gets you ready for bed (lotion-ed up, pjs on, books read, prayers said, and then he normally lets you watch "choo choo" or "tractor" until you get relaxed.  Then it's lights out.  You sleep in your own crib (most nights) and wake up around 7:15-7:30am.  Normally then it's milk & "tractor" in "the big bed" while mommy catches a few more zzzzz's or tries to convince herself to wake up! :)

It seems like once school started, our days are gotten extremely busy.  Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays we go to church.  Mondays & Thursdays are for Bible study and Fridays Preschool Praisers (music class).  Which you aren't a fan of this year.  But we go anyway :)  The other days it's either time spent around the house (cleaning) or spent over at Neena & D's while I work/sew.

First time to the church's pumpkin patch.  You actually went with Mrs. Belinda (the nursery worker) while I was in Bible study, so I had to get a picture of you and your pumpkin.
You (B.) can work the phone like a pro.  I guess what child/kid doesn't know how to work on these days.  You can unlock daddy's phone and emergency call Neena or D.

Your favorite shows are anything that involves a tractor (Mighty Machines on Netflix), All About John Deere dvd, Tec the Tractor, and Thomas the Train.

You also still love music!  We often have dance parties in the living room because we love watching you dance. It's the cutest.ever.  Plus it's just plain fun.  Your favorite song is "Wagon Wheel" sung by Darius Rucker.  You recognize it the moment it comes on.

To say you love tractors would be an understand.  You are straight obsessed.  Can't get enough of them.

You are also pretty partial to trains or "choo choos" and you love to play outside.

Food:  your favorite foods are black olives, pizza and pasta!  You request "pas-toe" for every single meal.  You aren't much of a meat eater unless it's sausage or bacon.  You also aren't much into breads.  You'll eat the top of the pizza off but leave the whole crust.  You are still a fairly good eater.  You eat just about anything and everything I make/cook.  Other than chicken.  Can't say that I blame you!  You still only drink milk (raw milk) and water!

I mean oh my goodness.  I love you to pieces.  You definitely keep me and your daddy on our toes.  You are always on the go and always getting into something.  But the joy you bring us is unbelievable.  So often we stop and think to ourselves - is he really ours?  Ours forever?  You are the light of our life!  We can't imagine our life before you and we don't want to go back to that - even if we are insanely tired.  The newborn stage was a piece of cake to now.  You are amaze us daily with the things you say and do.  You are a precious gift and we are so thankful for you.  But I would be lying if I wasn't in denial about having a soon two-year old.  I'm going to look up one day and you'll be 18, heading off to Aggieland. ;)  Which is why I don't want to blink and miss a thing.  We love you B and we are so incredibly proud of you!  You are our sunshine on a cloudy day!!!

Arrghh matey!
