How Big Are You?
You are 34 inches tall and 30 lbs. According to the doctor, you will be about 6 foot tall. (We will see what really happens!)

What’s Your Temperament?
We still get told that you are a pretty chill little dude. You are laid back until you get told no or don’t get your way. You, thankfully, don’t throw a lot of fits when we are out and about but you will get antsy when you sit in the cart for a long period of time! You love to play with all of your toys and love to have all of them out at one time. You are a very busy little boy all of the time. You are definately ready for warmer weather to come around so that we can go to the park all of the time.

What Are You Eating?
Everything that we eat at dinner, you eat. You have ventured to try all kinds of new things recently. You have tried lots of new seafood, including mussels and sushi(cooked of course).
Your favorites are Mac and cheese, blueberry breakfast bars, oatmeal, blueberries, bananas, avocados.
What Are you Sporting?
2T everything except for PJs. Pajamas you are rocking 3Ts these days.

How Are You Sleeping?
You take a while to fall asleep at night but you sleep all night. You typically are in bed by about 7:30 or 8:00 and don’t fall asleep until about 8:30 or 9:00 most nights. You normally wake up between 7 or 8 am but you have had a couple of mornings that you woke up around 8:30 or 9:00.

How Big Are You?
You are holding steady at about 30 lbs but you have sprouted up in the last couple of months.

What’s Your Temperament?
You can be the sweetest little boy and the next minute you are throwing a fit on the floor. You can be a little challenging but mom blames a little bit of that on you cutting your two year old molars. You love to read books and we read at least twice a day but sometimes more often. You love to play with your blocks, magnets, trains, and your play food.

What Are You Eating?
Everything we put in front of you, pretty much. You have developed a love for Greek yogurt and blocks of cheese lately. You still like hummus, peas, and cinnamon graham crackers a lot.

What Are you Sporting?
2T pants and shirts. Pajamas you are now exclusively in 3T. You are really stretching it to wear 2T PJs.

How Are You Sleeping?
You have done pretty well adjusting to all of the new surroundings we have put you in over the last month. You are still taking a 2-3 hour nap during the day but sometimes we let you skip it or let you sleep in the car so that we can do fun things.

How Big Are You?
We will see how much bigger you are at your 2 year old appointment. Maybe, we should weigh you…..

What’s Your Temperament?
You have definitely hit the trying twos. You need to be redirected or told no a lot more often these days. You don’t like to be told no though, you break down pretty much every time we tell you no. You do have a very sweet side though. You give great hugs and kisses and have started signing “I love you” to mom and dad. You love to learn and you are a very curious little boy.

What Are You Eating?
You love hummus, pretzel chips, peas, green beans, potatoes, chicken and steak. You eat most everything we put in front of you. The only exceptions we have found are mushrooms and onions, even though you did gobble the french onion soup we just recently had for dinner.

What Are you Sporting?
2T pants and shirts. Pajamas you are starting to wear 3Ts depending on the type of pjs. You really like to wear sweatpants, like mom and dad.

How Are You Sleeping?
When you are at home in your bed, you sleep like a champ. Most days during naps, you fall asleep before mom walks out of the room. You like to be rocked and read to before you lay down to go to sleep.

When you are in the pack in play, you don’t sleep the best. You typically wake up at least once during the night. At Mommom and PopPop’s house, you end up in bed with mommy a lot more than you are allowed to do that at home.

How Big Are You?
We will see in a couple of months but you have gained some weight, that is for sure!

What’s Your Temperament?
You are up and moving all of the time. You don’t like when you get told no. You have learned what time out is and you don’t like it at all. It takes lots of organization on mom’s part to make sure you have enough to do during the day.

What Are You Eating?
Everything and anything. You eat about five times a day and love graham crackers and animal crackers as snacks. You also love applesauce and especially from a packet.

What Are you Sporting?
2T everything but your pants still are a little long. You have started to wear 3T pajamas because of your big belly!

Now that you are back home in our Maryland house, you have slept sooooo much better. You were very happy to be back home in your bed!
