We are able to have full conversations with him nowadays. He understands a lot and is able to communicate pretty well with us. People say, kids say the darndest thing. This is so true! He doesn’t fail to crack us up each time with the things that he says. I wish I could videotape some of the things he says so I can remember forever. Its the way he says it too that makes it more funny. Or maybe I am just biased because he is my kid. ;)
He’s about 27 lbs at this age which is definitely on the skinnier side.
The other biggest milestone at this age is he’s potty trained. Details on this post.
He can read the Brown Bear book, and the We are going on a Bear Hunt book. Not perfect but most of it.
He has this bad habit of biting his nails. I can’t even remember the last time I cut his finger nails because he chews them all off!
He still sleeps in his crib. We talked about transferring him to a big boy bed but the thought of the freedom he is going to have, set us back. He can climb into his crib but not out.
He STILL comes to our bed in the middle of the night. We don’t mind it. We love it. Hope it doesn’t bite us in the end.
He sings Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, ABC’s, Row Row Row your boat, Happy Birthday, months of the year, and a fish songs that he learns at school. We have no idea what song is that since he only sings part of it, but it’s pretty cute when he does it. “Fishies swimming in the water, fishies swimming in the water, gulp gulp gulp.” None of the songs are perfect; Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is probably one of his best because he doesn’t miss any of the lyrics.
He loves school. We drop him off between 8-8:30a.m., and he gets picked up anywhere from 4:30- 5:30p.m.
He learned his month and days at school. Jan thru Dec, while missing some months and Mon thru Sunday, missing Thursday.
He is definitely a team Daddy. Loves his dad more than me. He wants daddy to do everything with him. He wants daddy to give him a bath, daddy to take him to the potty, daddy to brush his teeth.. etc. I don’t mind it at all, can you tell?
We went to his first Universal Studio trip this past Saturday. Had tons of fun. We watched Shrek 4D, a motion ride. He loved it. He kept his 4 D glasses on. He asked to touch the Pinocchio nose when on one of the scene, it grew because he was telling lies. On the 4D screen, it looks as if the nose came just right into our face.
