I'm stealing this format from my mama friends for his monthly updates. Thanks ladies!
Age: 2 years
Weight: 32.4 lbs (90th percentile!). It was his first time being weighed on the big boy scale. No more infant scale for us.
Height: 35.5 inches (also 90th percentile)
Size: 2T clothes, size 6 or 7 shoe, size 5 diaper
Hair: Had his third haircut about a month ago.
Teeth: At least 16, maybe 20. It's virtually impossible for me to see inside his little mouth to see if his 2 year molars have popped through yet.
Sleeping: He's still a rockstar when it comes to sleep. We can count on him to take a 2 hour nap, usually starting somewhere between 12 and 1pm and sleeps on average 11-12 hours each night (8pm - 7-8am). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will continue once baby sister comes home!
Eating: Eh. You wouldn't know it by his weight, but he goes back and forth on how much he eats and what he will eat. We can almost always get him to eat fruit (of any kind), yogurt, applesauce, cheese, cereal or crackers/pretzels. We cannot get him to eat a single veggie, despite all efforts. He drinks 3 cups of 2% milk each day and as much water as he wants.
Movement: He loves to run, jump, kick a ball, and play.
Milestones: Walking up the stairs without holding on to anything! Can walk down the stairs upright as long as he has something to hold on to, no more shuffling down on his belly or his bum. Continuing to put words together, counting (knows 1, 2, 3, skips 4, knows 5, 6, skips 7, knows 8, 9, 10), knows many of the letters of the alphabet by sight, starts to sing "Moon River". We also switched his carseat to forward facing the day after his second birthday.
Favorite toys/activities: Thomas the Train, toy cars/trucks, the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse characters. He loves to be outside more than anything! Loving his new swingset, likes to walk to a nearby pond and see the ducks, excited to see any kind of truck, especially the trash trucks on Wednesday mornings. Still loves the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, but not too interested in much else on television.
Dislikes: Coming inside or not being able to go outside, getting settled down for a nap, washing his hands before eating (he used to like it).
Words: Too many to count! Putting more and more words together, repeating everything we say, talking constantly.
