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