You are twenty-two months old today. Um? Just two months til you turn TWO years old! This is a special month for you because two is your favorite number. Well, it's actually the only number you know. When you count it sounds like this: "two, two, two, two" When we count together I say "one", you say "two", I say "three", you say "two", etc.
You love cars. You love to hold them, "vroom" them, or watch the cars movie (which you call "keen" after Lightning McQueen), or both, at the same time! You like to say "play cars, mommy, too?". Dude. That is a whole freaking sentence!
I just love listening to you talk. You prefer to end each and every sentence with "mommy", which is perfectly fine with me. I think it is pretty much the cutest thing in the world, because you are talking so MUCH, and most of the time I understand what you are talking about.
You like to drink "hot" milk, and eat DIP, bananas, toast, cereal, apples, DIP, grapes, crackers, cheese, "tookies," DIP, and that's pretty much it.
You love to read books and play cars with Mimi, who has been coming down for playdates every week or so, and you love to go to Nanny and Jim's so you can take the lids off all the spices in their spice cabinet (which they conveniently placed right at your level).
You love babies. And apparently aren't a baby yourself anymore. We found one of your old binkies under your bed and you didn't even put it in your mouth. You wanted to give it to your baby doll instead. Sometimes I'll ask you if you're a baby, or if you're a monkey...but you always say, "NO! kid!" which pretty much cracks me up every. single. time.
You go to bed a little after 7:00 and sleep until 7:00. (THANK YOU!!) You take a 2-3 hour nap each day after lunch, but it's been inching closer to two hours since you (finally) started sleeping in until 7:00. You go to bed pretty easily, especially if you're "ready" for bed. We just have to say goodnight to everybody...daddy, sissy, "camy", the christmas tree, your toys, and maybe some books, and you're good to go.
I can't wait to watch you this Christmas time. You're going to love it.
Love love love you.
