What’s Your Temperament?
The smiles were more plentiful this month but man those canines were not fun to cut at all. You have started throwing temper tantrums a little bit though when we tell you know or take away something that you are wanting to play with at that time. Overall, you are so much fun to be around.

What Are You Eating?
Anything. Everything.
You do like to throw your cup overboard off of your highchair.
We eat on the front porch pretty often and you do great in your outside highchair.

18-24 month everything! 24 month summertime pjs.
You wear number 4 diapers at daycare and at night time. You are still rocking your cloth diapers at home at night and on the weekends.

You pretty much put yourself to sleep these days. As long as you have your pacifier and blankets you are good to go. You only take one nap a day now.

Those darn teeth really have you fussy sometimes. The afternoons can be rough if you haven’t napped and your teeth hurt. You are still in general a very happy kiddo though.

You still eat pretty much everything we give you. You love meat and potatoes. You started feeding yourself with a spoon a little this month. You still drink only from a straw cup and you don’t drink a cup before going to bed now.

What Are you Sporting?
18-24 month everything! 24 months especially in pjs (which means mommy needs to buy you more for summertime!)

How Are You Sleeping?
All night, every night.
You know that when we put you in your bed, it is time for bed and you put yourself to sleep.

How Big Are You?

What’s Your Temperament?
This month has been hard on you. You are cutting some teeth and they have made you fussy, snotty and whiny, especially in the afternoon. You seemed to come out of it towards last week though.

What Are You Eating?
Everything! Sometimes I wonder if you have a hollow leg! At dinner, it seems like we can never give you enough food. You also have figured out that if you don’t like something you do 1 of 2 things. You either spit the food back out gently or you throw it on the floor.

You now only drink out of your straw cups and you don’t seem to be dribbling as much out of your mouth as you used to around your birthday.

What Are you Sporting?
Still rocking your 12 month pants but only because mom doesn’t want to buy you all new pants. Everything else is either 18 months or 18-24 months.
You wear number 4 diapers at daycare and at night time. You are still rocking your cloth diapers at home at night and on the weekends.

How Are You Sleeping?
When daddy is gone, you are sleeping through the night like a champ. Sometimes you wake up but not very often. You also fall asleep on your own in your bed like a pro. The only night we had problems with you was when we put you to bed early for throwing your dinner all over the floor. You didn’t like that at all and it took you 2 hours to cry it out that night.

Where I am with you…

1st visit to the Park

The weather is finally starting to warm up enough that we don’t have to bundle up everywhere we go so we went to our favorite park for a visit at the end of March to play. This was the first time Guyon had actually played at the park. The only bummer was that they don’t have good swings at this particular park. (Don’t worry though, we have tons of other parks close by that we need to try out and see if they have swings!)

Guyon really enjoyed playing and going down the slide!

Winterthur

Every year the Yacht Club that we belong to does something fun during the winter time to socialize with the club members. This year, since I am part of the leadership of the club now, i was in charge of planning the outing. We decided to visit Winterthur and go to dinner at the Brandywine Brewing Company in Wilmington.

It was a really interesting tour and there was a lot to see. I actually would love to go back at some point and see more of the house because it was so impressive!

This was just a few of the photos I took. Everyone that went had a great time and our little was a great tourist for the day.
