Daddy got home shortly before 9:00 pm and dropped him off in his pack-n-play. He protested, started crying, then yelled clearly across the house "Daddy, you come back here!".

I was folding up the cuffs of his too long shirt this morning. He was drinking milk and trying to watch Ruby & Max. "No thank you Mama, no thank you".

Two and half years old


You like to push buttons on everything. The remote control, the garage door, the lights, my keyfobs, and especially the automatic trunk closing button on the Flex. You ask to push the button from your carseat, from the store, from everywhere.

TV is your favorite (oops). You like all the Nick Jr shows. Peppa Pig is your favorite.

You like to dance. I put on music often and we just all dance. I'm trying to find a dance class for you at the right date and time.

Watermelon is waning as your favorite food. I think it is now cut up grapes.

You still won't drink from a straw but WILL drink a juice box.

Drooling is still a big problem for you.

I can't get you to sit on the potty or stand by the potty or go near the potty without a big tantrum. You HATE the potty.

You like to climb all over me when I am sitting on the couch trying to do something. You launch yourself off the table onto my lap like a superhero.

You know most numbers, some colors and many letters.

You love to eat ice cream now!!!!! Finally.

I've started you in gymnastics - Mommy & Me. you tantrumed through the first class but last week you liked everything except summersaults.

You call Victoria "Toria". If she is in trouble for something, he will repeat our words to her in a scolding voice. So, so funny.

Mama, is used as a noun, verb, adjective, etc.

THe pack n play is where you sleep. After a tough week of putting you back in the big boy bed multiple times a night, Daddy put it up. You can stay here until you are six for all the hassle it was. I've accepted it and moved on.
