Two Years and Counting...

at 2 years old you...

  • weigh about 25 lbs and about 34 1/2  inches long
  • have beautiful hazel eyes that look more brown than green on most days
  • are starting to definitely show signs of curly hair to come, though it's still pretty short right now
  • love watermelon, blueberries, strawberries, yogurt, chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, and any snack
  • love to try to figure out how things work or go together...and for a 2 year old, you're very good at it!
  • hate green beans, fresh {raw} veggies, and nuts {unless they are inside an M&M}
  • are very good at pestering your sister, especially when it involves destroying one of her creations
  • absolutely adore anything with tires and an engine, especially tractors and lawn mowers
  • have an everexpanding vocabulary now, and you're really working hard to repeat all that you hear now
  • still have a few words that aren't quite right, but I love hearing "mon-noer" which is how you pronounce "lawn mower"
  • and you have a few words that aren't quite right, and I beg you not to say them because they sound too close to a not-so-nice "truck" or "fork"...but we're working on that already
  • are an outside-loving, dirt playing, rock-collecting, all out BOY in every sense of the word
  • occasionally have a desire to potty like a big boy, but not often enough to leave the diaper
  • love music and quickly try to pick up on the words of new songs
  • have a calm, go-with-the-flow attitude most of the time
  • like any kind of creepy-crawlies, and like even more when you catch them
  • are very generous with showing affection to those you love, and we love it!
  • eating with a spoon and fork, but still like your fingers a lot, too
  • try to be the protector for other little ones - when they are doing something that may hurt them,  you do all that you can, even push them down, to keep them from getting hurt
**Happy 2nd Birthday, Austin!**
You are my sweet baby big boy, and I am so thankful that God chose me to be your Mommy!! I'm looking forward to this next year and many thereafter with you, Little Man.
