Last week my sweet boys turned 2 years old, and 4 months old. Both ages are pretty special right now – they laugh and smile at each other all the time! It is so cute. A likes to push C around while C lays in his Rock and Play, and C likes to watch A play while C does tummy time.
I don’t get to say I have #2under2 anymore, and I will miss that – I can’t believe how fast they are growing! Raising two little ones close in age has been a blessing to me.
Here are a few of my favorite things about my 2 year old 🙂
Every morning during breakfast he looks outside and says “outside, ball” – if he could play outside from sun up until sun down, he would.
He moves non stop during the day, but always finds time to give me hugs and kisses, and to sit on my lap so that we can read books.
When I tell him it is naptime or bedtime, he happily runs up the stairs, turns on his sound machine, and gets ready for storytime.
When J drinks a beer, A gets excited because that means they get to go hang out in the backyard together.
Whether it has been 5 minutes or 5 hours of being away from me, when he sees me he immediately lights up and says “mama”!
He makes running errands easy – whether it is the doctor, the dentist, a haircut, Sephora, my little buddy is always such a good boy and makes friends with everyone he sees.
J is a superhero to him – they are best pals and A copies everything he does; they workout together, go in the jacuzzi or the ocean together, kick the soccer ball together…It is the cutest.
He loves his brother and always asks to see him first thing in the morning.
When he wakes up, he grabs his book and sits in his crib reading.
He eats man-sized portions of food. When we go out to sushi, he eats all the edamame before anyone else can get some, and then proceeds to shove spicy tuna rolls, philadelphia rolls, he doesn’t care…anything, in his mouth. When other people see him eat a giant portion of mac and cheese, I can’t tell if they are amused or horrified. At home, all he asks for are healthy foods – he loves blueberries, apples, bananas, brussel sprouts, avocado, and eggs the most.
When I tell him it is time to go on an adventure (ie anywhere) he grabs a truck and is ready to go.
He loves to learn new words, play with trucks, kick the soccer ball, and look at books.
