First, thank you for all the comments yesterday! It makes me so happy to hear from so many of you!!
Second, it’s official, I have a TWO YEAR OLD so I thought it would be good to wrap the week up with a full recap of what he’s up to. Maxwell is just so fun these days. He’s communicating more clearly every day and I just love hearing the fun and funny things that come out of his mouth. Just a few things about him right now that I want to remember….
He’s talking up a storm and learning new words every day. He knows red, green, blue, yellow and purple. He’s starting to make mini sentences – mainly starting with “me” like “me eat.” and even getting into 3 word phrases like “no puppies me.”
He still LOVES trucks. One of his favorite things on our walks is to go see the “lallow tucks” – all of the various yellow construction trucks in the neighborhood!
He still sleeps in a sleep sack and, lots of nights, fills it up with all the toys that he wants to have in the bed with him! His bed is always full of Nanner, Mr. Moo, two wooden yellow truck puzzle pieces and then at least 2 other plastic trucks. I don’t know how he doesn’t roll onto them in the night and wake himself up!
He continues to be a great sleeper. After our nightly routine of reading several books, turning off the lamp and turning on the Twilight Turtle (purple, lallow, purple, lallow), he’s in bed between 7:30 and 8:00 and wakes up around 7:00 in the morning. He’s still napping every day at 1:00 until about 4:00. yay! Let’s hope his baby brother is as good of a sleeper as he’s been!
Shhhh, the baby’s sleeping…
He’s still obsessed with shoes and wants to wear them all the time. He’s also still a big fan of his baseball cap – never puts up a fight about wearing that!
He’s definitely developed a little happy squeal – or maybe I should say scream – that he does when he’s really excited about something! It’s loud and hilarious! His other big reaction is to say “ooooooh” when I explain something to him. I love to hear that little “ooooooh” because that means whatever I said clicked in his head!
He still says “yea yea” for yes and it melts me. And he’s very good at saying “no”…especially when it comes to food! He’s learned ‘day and night’, as well as ‘above and below’ thanks to his Dinosaur Roar and Sandra Boynton Opposites book. He loves to say that things are “cuuuute!” and he also loves to tell me when he finds some dirt on the floor with a loud exclamation of “dirt dirt!”. Yea, I love that! 🙂 Most impressive? He can definitely tell you he’s TWO while holding up 5 fingers!!
While we’re not ready to potty train yet in my opinion, he is very good at telling me when he “pees” and needs a clean diaper. I’ll take that as a first step!
He gives awesome hugs and the sweetest kisses. If you don’t get one on the cheek, he’ll happily blow you a kiss!
I just love to see how he learns new things every day and picks up on what we’re telling him. He totally gets it and I can’t wait for his little vocabulary to catch up with his brain!
Now, on to some more shots of my two year old!
I have got to teach him to stop making this piggy face!!…
Happy two years sweet boy!
