Today my baby boy is 2 1/2 years old! I really wish that someone would slow the time down. 30 months have passed since he was born, and it literally feels like yesterday! In the same time period that has passed, he will be 5! Oh my gosh!!!
We went to the doctor last Friday for flu shots, and Reid got his MMR because I have done the delayed/staggered vaccination schedule with him. He weighed 32 pounds. I am not sure about his height. I need to measure him soon. He also wears a size 9 1/2 shoe!!! He is wearing mostly 3T clothing.
Wyatt was with us because he was out of school last Friday. He weighed at the doctor's office for fun and weighed 68 pounds! He also got a flu shot and didn't even flinch! Reid on the other hand....lots of crying followed!
He started back to MDO in the 2's class on September 7th! He goes two days a week. He fusses every day saying "I don't want to go to school." But his teacher says he LOVES it and smiles all day long!!!
He has been fully potty-trained (except for a diaper at night) for about a month now. He pretty much did it on his own, and I couldn't be more proud!!!
Things he loves at 2 1/2: * bulldozers, excavators, and all heavy equipment * Curious George * cars, trains and airplanes (anything with wheels) * candy (he is a candy HOG!) * his MOMMA!!! * going places to look at toys (especially Target) * Chick fil A (he loves to play on the playground) * being outside....his favorite thing in the world!!! * the blanket and lovie!!! I think we will have those FOREVER :)
Somewhere along the way, I realized that Reid had these lips! They are not his momma's lips (i.e. I have none to speak of). I never really paid attention to my husband's lips, but then we found a baby pic of him, and I realized where the lips came from! He has his Daddy's lips!
I always make fun of my husband when he does something that requires concentration because he "pooches" out his lips. He can be helping me in the kitchen or typing on the computer. The lips come out! LOL! So, the other day Reid was playing with the hose. He started spraying the windows, and out of nowhere, he started doing the "lip pooch". I ran inside to get the camera. Hilarious!
Wyatt has come to realize that he knows just how to aggravate Reid. It aggravates this momma the MOST! He has gotten in trouble A LOT lately for said aggravating. My husband took Wyatt and Reid to the airport this morning. Wyatt videoed this encounter of said aggravation while they were there.
Why yes Wyatt, being around airplanes can be dangerous. See Exhibit A.
Wyatt went to the ER for the first time when he was 5 after being at the airport with my hubby. Wyatt ran into an airplane propeller while running around with some other kids. It could have been much worse. A plastic surgeon stitched him up, and you seriously can't even see the scar. Thank goodness for fellow pilots who are also plastic surgeons!
This morning on the way to bring Wyatt to school, Reid starting screaming about wanting a doughnut! We NEVER go through the drive thru to get doughnuts, so I'm not sure what triggered that thought. Anyway, I did my best diversion technique, and it worked:)
My husband left early this morning before we all go up. He came home at about 9:00 a.m. to do some work on the computer. Sometimes, when he leaves early, he goes to a doughnut place nearby that puts their doughnuts in these little white bags. When Reid sees a little white bag, he knows his Daddy has brought him a doughnut. Well, when Lance came in at 9:00, he had a white bag! Reid was so excited!
