Earlier this month (on the 10th to be exact), my sweet big boy officially turned 2 1/2. Since I don't do monthly posts for him anymore, I wanted to make sure and document this. He has changed SO MUCH in the last 6 months.
You were a late talker. About 2 months ago you started talking in sentences and are now talking our ears off. You are repeating so much of what we say and every day you have a new phrase you're saying. You still loves puzzles, coloring, any kind of craft, trucks, balls, playing outside, going to the park, and going on walks. Your favorite shows are Dora, Super Why, Yo Gabba Gabba, Special Agent Oso, and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
This Christmas season has been so much fun. You love every part of Christmas. One of your favorite things to do is "rock baby Jesus." I'll sing "Away in a Manger" and you will rock baby Jesus. It's the SWEETEST THING EVER.
You are the sweetest big brother ever. You love Emma and it is so very obvious. Y'all play so well together. When one of y'all is asleep or not around, the other is clearly missing their sibling. I love the special relationship y'all already have and pray it only gets stronger.
Meal times are not the most exciting thing with you right now. We are constantly negotiating with you on how many bites you have to eat. You are so obsessed with numbers that it can get pretty funny. We will tell you, "5 more bites" and you will come back with, "NO, 9." Then once you realized you've said a bigger number you'll quickly fix your reply.
Again, you're obsessed with numbers. And the alphabet. You know all the sounds the letters make. You are also able to hear a word and tell us the first letter of that word. You got so many reading, site word, alphabet related gifts for Christmas and you're loving them. You've already learned so much in the last week.
I love this age so much. As far as terrible twos go, this is pretty easy. 18 months-24 months were much more challenging. The last 6 months have been a lot easier than I thought. Fingers crossed it stays this way. :)
