The 1/2 year old

Loves:

scooting backward
smiling
water bottles
my phone
snuggling
bouncing
standing with support

Does not love:

having his nose wiped

He has 2 teeth on the bottom and 1 on top. He weighs 19 lbs 6 oz and is 26 inches long. He wears size 4 diapers, size 12-month clothes, can sit up and grabs anything and everything within his reach. He is such a happy baby and loves attention. I sure do love this little chunk.







The 2 1/2 year old

Loves:
showers
flowers
playing dress-up
Mickey Mouse
Disney princesses
cheese
shoes
Grandma, Papa and Uncle Jared
Kung Fu Panda
Finding Nemo
car rides
swings

Does not love:

leaving people she loves

She has an ever-increasing vocabulary. Some words she pronounces correctly, but others not so much. Some of my favorites:
guck (cookie)
muck (milk)
f--- (frog)
sowah (cereal)
Kuh (Claire)
Guh (Jared)
Sanny (Sandy)
hum (phone)
meh (banana)
pick (pig)
eck (egg)
teetee (tv)
peez (please)
Gamma (Grandma)
gusses (glasses)
camma (camera)
yuch (lunch)
showah (shower)
towah (towel)
bun (spoon)
pie-yay (potty)

She's small for her age and very active. She very affectionate with her baby brother (sometimes a bit too much) and is learning to share. She can count to 2 and can say every letter in her name. She's actively going through the terrible two's, throwing several temper tantrums a day. Her favorite words are "no" and "mine." She is very much loved and is such a blessing to have around.
