He currently is obsessed with bibs and shoes, his puppy slippers to be precise. He will throw a fit if you take them off. He loves to swing, eat, and play. I'd say about 85% of the time he is a happy sweet little boy. The other 15%? Try to put him in his car seat? A fit. Take him out of his high chair? fit. make him come inside from playing? Fit.
Lucky for him, between his fits, he is a silly goose. Everything makes this kid laugh. Hit him on the head with a balloon, giggles. He is a big fan of the tickle monster, giggles. I think his head is numb. He rarely ever cries because he hits his head. Which he does a lot.
Like I mentioned, his verbal skills are so much more advanced than Dylan's were at this point. He has lots of words, but trys to make me seem like a liar, because he is pretty people shy. Strangers try to get him to smile at them, and he will just stare at them. It cracks me up, and of course he will say " hi or bye bye" as soon as they walk off. I am amazed at how much he already knows. He knows all the parts of his face ( ears, nose , mouth, nose head, hair), and a few body parts, belly, hands, feet. Plus so many more random things that I try to think back on with Dylan and can't remember. Which is why I am writing this post! To remember
He loves his brother, but is also happy to play by himself, which makes this Mama very happy. He loves to play with stuffies still. He will be the kid who gets a stuffed animal everywhere he goes. He is just so sweet with them, he tries to carry multiple all the time, and his bed looks like one of those machines you can pull animals out of with a crane! ( ok, maybe not, but if we would let him take them all, I'm sure it would look like that.
He loves to show me his muscles, and point to airplanes, birds, and any car that is coming down the street. Though I would say his favorite thing to do is of course swing on his new swing set. He would literally stay all day if we let him. Sometimes, if he is holding George, I will look and his eyes are closed. He is either really enjoying himself and savoring it, or it puts him to sleep. Silly boy.
He is still our long and lean child, finally broke into the twenty's for weight: weighing in at 22 lbs today! A respectable 33 inches long. He is wearing shorts that I'm sure Dylan could still wear, but I have passed on to him. He is wearing 18 month shirts, and size 5 shoes, though I bet he could move to a size 6.

I can't believe my baby is closer to two than one now. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us in the coming months!
