23 Months Old- 11/30/13

Weight/Length- I'm estimating around 31-32 pounds and close to 34". Will get official stats at 2 year checkup on 1/2/14.

Eating- Not much has changed, still picky with veggies and meat. Don't eat much during mealtimes but love to snack throughout the day. Some favorites are applesauce, cheese, cherry tomatoes, pretzels dipped in hummus and cheerios.

Sleep- Still going to bed around 7:45pm without any problems and waking up around 6:30am. Very rarely do you sleep past 7am. You sleep fine through the night and only occasionally will wake up and need to be tucked back in. 

Clothes- 24 months and 2T. Size 6 shoe

Diapers- Size 5 both daytime and overnight.

Appearance- Hair is getting darker now that summer is over. It's more dark blond/very light brown. Eyes are still a green/grey combo, more green than grey.

Personality- Becoming very independent and great about understanding and doing what we ask (most of the time). You are so incredibly smart and have such a great memory that it amazes us daily. You are still full of energy and always on the move. You are constantly wanting to know what everything is and will point and say 'This?' all day long and then repeat after us when we tell you what it is. You are still my funny, sweet little boy and we have so much fun with you. 

Likes-
-All the same things as last month- still obsessed with all things buses, trucks and cars. You love your mega building blocks and have gotten really good at building things. You also still love your ladybug pillow pet and your "moo cow" stuffed animal. You always ask to watch "Mickey" but it only keeps your attention span for a few minutes. Modern Family is your favorite show and you will sit and watch a whole episode if it's on t.v.


Milestones-
-Can now count to 10 on your own
-Know most of the words to "Wheels on The Bus" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Start"
-Know most of your colors but green seems to be your favorite.
-Talking in mostly 2-4 word sentences
-You say your first and last name when asked "what's your name"
-I've lost count of how many words you can now say but you can repeat almost anything we ask you to. 
-When asked what you want to eat you will tell us what you want (it's almost always applesauce)
-You did your first real trick or treating.
-You met Abby and Gavin for the first time and got to see Santa at National Harbor
