22 Months- 10/30/13

Weight/Length- I'm estimating around 30-31 pounds and close to 34"

Eating- You still eat a lot but prefer snacking to big meals and you've gotten very picky especially with meat and veggies. You actually seem to like deer meat the best which just proves we gave you the right name. You love crackers (any type) and always ask for them.

Sleep- Bedtime- 7:45pm and waking up between 6:30-7am most days. I'm fearing the time change this weekend and hoping you won't be waking up at 5am.

Clothes- Still 18 and 24 months.

Diapers- Size 5 both daytime and overnight.

Appearance- Hair is still blonde but not quite as light as it was this summer and very thick with waves when it's longer. Eyes are still a green/grey combo, more green than grey.

Personality- Still my wild, active, curious little boy. You still love all boy things like trucks and buses and playing outside and throwing dirt. You are always talking and have gotten pretty opinionated and demanding when it comes to what you want.

Likes-
-All the same things as last month though your most favorite things are - buses, playing outside with Jordynn (your girlfriend), your ladybug pillow pet and watching videos on the iPad.


Milestones-
-Went #1 and #2 on the potty for the first time at daycare (you've only done it a couple times though)
-Got to meet Smith for the first time
-First Kiss (with Miss Jordynn)
-Got to climb onto a firetruck for the first time
-Got to visit your Uncle Michael's and Miss Melissa's house for the first time
-You've started lining up and stacking your buses and trucks
-You can climb the ladder at the park and go down the big slide by yourself.
-Painted your first pumpkin.

New words/phrases that you say regularly and in the right context:
-"trick or treat"
-"happy birthday"
-"Jack and Lily" (your grandparents dogs)
-"Jordynn's house" (you say this everyday when you want to go play with her)
-"light shoes" (for your shoes that light up on the bottom)

Wow, he's getting so big.

I can't believe he's in a 5 diaper. We never even made it to 5. I think Laura was a 4 when she potty-trained. It's nice he's potty training early. Laura used the potty around this time, but then she regressed for awhile. She adapted to it right before she turned 3.

We never did this, but my friend would gradually start moving her kids bedtime and awake time around the time change. The mornings are always hard for us. Laura stays in bed if it's dark out so the mornings will be a challenge. She's always been a night owl and slow poke in the morning which is good or we'd have to return her.

Aww I hate how fast these toddlers are growing up. Soon 2. And what is it with toddler and crackers? I hear that word a million times a day. Sounds like Hunter's able to talk up a storm. This is such a fun age.
