Things to remember.



 
 
Things to remember at almost 2 1/2 years old...
 
Still obsessed with cars, trucks, motorcycles...
 
Really into Buzz and Woody, loves to say "to infinity and beyond!"...
 
Starting to get picky about clothes (especially his pj's), will wear only ankle socks, and only a certain color at night (usually black, blue or green Nike socks)...
 
Really testing the limits with mom and dad...volunteers to go to timeout when we threaten it and pretty much laughs anytime mom tries to punish...
 
Talks so good...validated by my mother in law who's a teacher :)  The kids vocab is fantastic and he talks in full sentences all the time.  Repeats everything after you say it.  Conversations with him are a hoot...
 
Still very particular about everything.  "Mommy sit there, mommy put your feet up"  "I need a snack on a plate mommy"  "Daddy you have this race car"  "I need new (aka colder) water please"  Things have to be in the perfect place, cars "parked" in a row, blankets in certain spots in his bed, and on and on...
 
Favorite sayings..."Daddy working out the kids?"  "Mommy what you doining" (and yes doining is how he says it, adorable).   "Daddy come play with me in the playroom."  "I ride papa's motorcycle?" (and then doesn't want to even sit on it). The things he says and the way he says things are hilarious... 
 
Eats really well still and cheeseburgers are still the favorite, likes animal crackers, goldfish crackers, donuts, eggs, fruit, rice, chicken strips, mommas cupcakes, chips and salsa, mexican food...
 
 New favorite activity is dance parties before bed, also my new favorite.  And he has all the classic "white boy" moves...
 
His relationship with Maisy grows more adorable by the day...
 
Loves to play hide and seek but like most 2 year olds laughs while hiding...
 
Loves to wrestle/tackle dad and play cars with mom...
 
He has a HUGE personality.  A little shy when new people are around but crazy, very loud, energetic, smart, sweet, ornery little boy. 
 
 
I count my blessings every single day with him.
