Twenty-Four Months

Holy moly. I can’t believe two years have gone by already. I can’t believe how big and smart and independent this handsome little boy of mine is.

I can’t believe this is the last time I’ll write one of these updates (for Gus, at least).

Height & Weight: 33 1/2 inches tall, and 24 pounds (up from 19 inches and 5.5 pounds at birth)

Likes: Building “trains” out of all his toy cars, building and destroying any sort of tower, Legos Legos and more Legos (Duplos, technically) Mickey Mouse, and his old standby – Curious George. He is obsessed with playing in ice-cold water during and after his bath. He screams and laughs the entire time, and fake cries when I turn off the water.

Dislikes: He is pretty agreeable for a two-year-old. He doesn’t like to take breaks from toys/George/the plan for diaper changes, and if he’s in the process of setting up a car train, Heaven help you if you try to touch one of the pieces.

Sleep: A month ago we’d barely finished sleep training, and now I’m confident in saying the kid has it down. Naps and nighttime are a breeze, and he just lays down, says goodnight, and I rarely hear a peep before morning. I also recently dropped our bedtime and naptime nursing sessions, and he’s been doing amazingly well.

Eating: “Hop Crackers,” (Annie’s bunnies) are a constant request, along with “fruit,” which means yogurt, but also sometimes fruit, which is fun to figure out. He’s discovered ranch dressing, but thankfully he only eats it with broccoli which he also loves.

Clothes: 2Ts pretty much across the board, even though the waists are all way too big.

New Tricks: So many more new words, more syllables, longer and longer sentences, and TONS of repeating (I officially need to start watching my language). He sort of cursed the other day, and he was repeating after (haha!) his… Grandmother. And then, last night, I spilled something and said, “oh crap!” which he repeated until bedtime. I also recently signed Gus up for a tumbling class and I think he really enjoys going.

Teeth: Those last four molars are moving at a glacial pace, but the bottom two have almost broken through. Tooth Tally: 16.
