My son is now TWO AND A HALF?!?!
Did I just type that correctly?!
I don’t know why this keeps shocking me. Ever since he turned two, the realization of how old he is keeps hitting me (as does my son during his tantrums). I think it is more so HOW he is acting as opposed to his actual age that floors me. That is why when he turned one, it was not that big of a deal, he was still this little man who needed me for so much and still acted like a baby of sorts.
But two. Not so much.
I should have known two would be harder and different considering on his second birthday he got on his NEW tricycle my parents got him and road into the sunset like he had been doing this forever.
UH, WHEN DID YOU LEARN TO RIDE A BIKE?!?!
What, you turn two and now you are all grown up?!
He was also a late(er) talker, but it was like when he turned two he decided he had a LOT to say and now, he talks ALL. THE. TIME. and repeats everything (oops). He has ideas and his own thoughts and is imagining and playing make believe and sings and is funny and…well it is awesome!! But with that he is also more grown up.
Oh, and how do I know he has his own ideas, you ask? Well he will put his fist under his chin, and with a pretty intense thinking face on says “hmmmmmm. OH, I got an idea!!! I know, we can…..” and proceeds to his idea. He has LOTS of ideas :-)
He also says “Oh, I know what to do!” OR “Oh, I forgot!” (These are also stall tactics before bed and if we want him to pick up toys. He will say he “Oh, I forgot” something and then go over and move something like a toy a foot to the right or goes and kisses and hugs EVERY item in his room. No, I mean EVERY item. The wall (hug, kiss, I yub you wall) and that pattern continues for a clothes basket, his stuffed animals, a bottle of lotion….you get the idea. This can go on for awhile if we don’t stop it.
I wish I could just have a camera on him all day to record all the things he says and does because it is pretty great. Of course he would probably look at that camera and say “NO CHEESE ME!!!” and get mad….so maybe hidden cameras!
So what else is new with Henry.......
