What we do when we’re 2: Part 1!

You all know how much I love my little man and there is no way I could stop posting about him completely! I hope to do a post about him every couple of months! Can you believe he’s been 2 for a quarter of a year already?!

Two is such a crazy age! One minute I’ve got my sweet little boy who brings his sister a toy when she’s upset the next he’s having a screaming crying fit because I want him to eat something on his plate!

A lot the time I don’t think he gives a hoot about his baby sister but now that she is getting older and a lot more fun he interacts with her a little more. In the morning if both she and he are awake at the same time he asks if she can come and lay in his crib with him.

He then proceeds to give her one of his “buddies” and then yells at her saying, “No! That’s mine!” Yeah….we are still working on sharing!

My boy LOVES to read! Once he turned two we were able to go to toddler story time at the library. At first he was really shy but by the end of the 6 week session he was standing up by the librarian as she read the stories and sang the songs. Another way that we combated the loooooong winter was to head to the Children’s Museum. My mom has a friend who graciously let us be her guests several times on Thursday mornings.

That place was made for Hunter! It has trains, boats, helicopters, trucks and more! Again, he was a little hesitant being in a new place but the last time we were there it was all I could do to chase him throughout the three floors of exhibits. He loved it!

FINALLY the weather turned nice. Last summer I had dreams of playing with Hunter in the park and running around with him in our back yard but since he wasn’t walking yet our trips outside were rather tame. Now a day doesn’t go by that he doesn’t ask to play outside or go to the park!

He loves playing with the sand table from Grandma and Grandpa Cuckoo’s house!

He also recently has had a crazy obsession with pinwheels! He saw one in a neighbor’s yard and didn’t stop talking about it. During one of our walks around the neighborhood we found a house with TONS of pinwheels in their yard.

He’s still so very very verbal! He chatters on and on. He LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and will often tell you about one of the episodes repeating details that I don’t even remember. He is also getting very creative and imaginative. He will act out episodes from Mickey with his toys. He spent several days playing with this box which he told me was a boat!

Because he’s so verbal he is quick to tell you what he likes and dislikes. Especially when it comes to food! He is quite the picky eater but he does love his sweets!

A couple of firsts over these past few months. Hunter had his first “puking” incident. It was AWFUL! Let’s just say I was holding him when it happened! Worse though was how sad and miserable to he was!

He also got to color Easter eggs for the first time

And catch his first fish!

I love watching my little man grow an change! Hunter still sleeps in a crib and potty training seems to be at a stand still but it is all good. I am enjoying my guy in the moment and loving TWO even on the days when he doesn’t nap!

It is such a joy to experience the world through his eyes! Thanks for keeping life interesting little man!
