Happy 26 Months, Noah!

I'm a few days late on this post, but I wanted to make sure I sat down and wrote it, because this past month has been full of changes and growth.

Noah, you turned 26 months October 27th! Here are some of the things you have been up to lately:

1. You are still in a size 5 diaper. No changes there.

2. You are wearing size 2T {3T in pj's} in clothing and a size 7-8 shoes.

3. Your favorite shows right now are Toy Story, Veggie Tales, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Your Daddy and I still can't believe how much you love Willy Wonka. Maybe it is because of all the candy in the movie-- you looooove candy.

4. You love acorns, leaves, sticks, and rocks. And you love getting your hands dirty. You are 100% boy.


5. In your speech you have recently changed from baby babble to a basic form of Chinese {as your Daddy always says}. In other words, you are really starting to experiment with new sounds as you talk. You are also really starting to mimic us more. Your verbal words consist of: Momma, Dadda, Baby, Bowl, Apple, Papa, Nana, Mimi {just learned that one last night!}, Bubba, Fool {which sounds like pool when you say it, and yes, your Daddy taught you that one}, Four, Ball, Shoe... you are saying new words everyday! And signs, goodness, I've completely lost track you are signing so many. We are sooo proud of you mister.

6. You still love wrestling with Daddy.

7. You are still a really good car-rider, well, except when the sun gets in your eyes. Oh my gosh you get soooo mad and cry the entire time it's in your eyes. Maybe it's time for some sunglasses.

8. You are still going to Mother's Day Out on Monday and Wednesday every week and have been enjoying it. You no longer cry when I drop you off. You are starting to recognize your surroundings, teachers, and friends. I am so happy to see you enjoying yourself there. It is such a blessing, and I can see you are learning so much.

9. You have really started to take an interest in Einstein lately. You give him more hugs, you think it is so funny when he gags himself, and you love to watch him run around the house-- it makes you laugh every time. I love watching the both of you interact. It is so cute!


10. But you aren't always sweet to Einstein. You tend to take your frustration out on him when you're mad. Basically you try to tackle him or grab his face. Poor ol' Eins!

11. You are so good about brushing your teeth every evening. And now you even go to the trashcan and spit out the toothpaste in your mouth just like we've practiced. Maybe we can do it twice a day now! :)

12. You go to bed around 7:30- 8:00 pm, and lately, you've been waking up anywhere between 7:00-8:00 am.

13. You love your step stool that Mommy bought you about a month ago. You keep it in the kitchen so you can stand on it and see what is going on... or so you can reach for something you want and otherwise would not be able to reach.

14. You are still a very, very organized {OCD?} little boy. The other night before you could go to sleep you had to organize {from smallest to biggest} three jars of Vaseline on the table in your room. Once you did that, you hopped in bed and went straight to sleep. Funny little guy.


15. You have learned to whisper and it is seriously the. cutest. thing. ever! I always, always want to remember those whispers.

16. You definitely have a sweet tooth-- you love it all.

17. Tomorrow will be your very first time to go Trick-or-Treating. I'm anxious to see how you will like it. And goodness, you look absolutely adorable in your costume!

Your Mommy and Daddy love you so much and are so very, very proud of you. You are our greatest joy!

Happy 26 months sweet boy!
