    20 months

    We’re in the 20’s now. I have a hard time grasping that in 4 months (4 MONTHS!!!) we’ll have a 2-year old on our hands. I don’t know about you, but the term Terrible Two’s sends shivvers down my back.

    G has an awesome sense of humor. This kid laughs (mostly at himself) any time he’s not in a pissy mood (which luckily is rare). I really, really can’t wait for him to start speaking in phrases I can understand. Maybe then I can laugh with him.

    He’s also become a huge book lover. He loves to sit in my lap and be read to. He’ll bring me 3-4 books at a time and just power through. He likes to bring books in the car too and sometimes won’t leave for school without one. He’s favorite these days is “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”.

    Weight: 22lb 6oz (no change since last month)

    Number of teeth: 15 (we got 2 more canines this month, and the last is about to poke out any day now too)

    Words: Holy cow this has been a crazy word month! He added at least 20 this month alone. Pretty soon I’m going to have to stop keeping track. G is also becoming an incredible mimic. He’s repeat a word after us all the time. Even if he doesn’t know what it means, he can repeat it. The one that stumped me a few weeks ago is repeating “Elephant”. That’s a lot of syllables for a short little dude.

    Favorite food: Pot stickers. Big fan of Sushi Monster (our favorite sushi hangout) pot stickers. He gets a whole order all to himself, as this child easily inhales 6 of them in a sitting on his own.

    Favorite activity: Jumping. He’s trying to figure out how to jump. He can bounce one foot off the floor, but hasn’t yet figured out how to get both feet off the floor at the same time. He loves to jump though.

    My hopes for next month: That he gains some weight. Kid’s been at the low end of 22lbs for 2 months now.

    Potty trained?: HAHAHAHAHHA!

    Naughtiest moment of the month: Throwing objects at the TV & standing up on his trycicle. He’s lost a few toys this month to this behavior.

    Sweetest moment of the month: Backing up to my lap (seriously in dump-truck fashion) with a book in hand.

    Temper tantrum meter: mild
