2 years old!!

 {Jack at 1 week old. **sigh**}

My little man is 2!  I cannot believe that 2 years has passed already.  I remember going into labor and it all feels like yesterday!

He is definitely coming into his own little person and he's very opinionated :)

 {4 months}

I'm forgetful and didn't schedule his 2 year appointment on time, so he's not going until April, but last week at the doctor he weighed 27 pounds.  Not sure about height.  He's pretty tall and skinny right now!

He still wears a size 4 diaper....I'm pretty sure he's been wearing a size 4 for a year.  He wears 24 month and 2T clothes.  His shorts/pants are 24 month, but shirts are 2T.  He wears a size 6 shoe.

{his first birthday!}

He still loves his paci, and his sassy lovies.  I know I should make him give up the paci, it's just not a battle I've been willing to fight!

Speaking of fighting battles, we are still struggling with ear infections or fluid in his ears and strep!  I'm so ready to be done with sickness!!

{his cake we made this weekend...I'm pretty proud, I must say!}

He is not a great eater.  Although, if he has "ketcup" he will eat more.  His main food loves are: cheetos, scrambled eggs, fruit snacks, french fries, and mandarin oranges.  He's such a healthy eater! Clearly, I'm joking.  He usually eats 3 bites of dinner and then he is done.

He's talking great and is very animated when he speaks.  He's either very happy and excited or very frustrated and mad! Haha.

 {we filled his room with balloons while he was sleeping...he was so happy and woke up screaming "boooooooons!"}

He has a sweet heart and hates to hear people crying.  He says, "Reesie, be happy." if she is crying.  

He has also started hitting.  This is such a boy thing.  Reese never acts physical if she doesn't get her way.  Jack def. does.

{Super Jack and the super huge dump truck!}

He likes to tell people how to drive.  He will say to go "dat way" and point to the left.  If you turn to the right, he gets very mad. He has routes he's memorized and if you go a different route, it throws him off.  

He is OBSESSED with cars, trains, anything with wheels.  He lays flat on his belly and pushes the cars around, watching the wheels go round and round.

 {doughnut cake for his actual birthday!}

His favorites right now are:
Thomas the train {and Percy, James, Emily....etc.  He can name them all!}
Mater/Lightening McQueen
The Fox and the Hound
Dump trucks, bulldozers, monster trucks
He reads "Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site" before bed

{an arm full of cars and his paci...he's a happy boy!}

He takes 1 nap a day, anywhere from 1.5-3 hours.  He goes to bed about 8 and he's not the best sleeper.  He wakes up a few times a night and cries out for a few minutes, then goes back to sleep.  He usually wakes up around 7 or 7:30.

 {working on his fishie puzzle...giving me that look because I took his paci out for the picture.}

I really am just so in love with this boy. He just has a presence about him.  He doesn't meet strangers and he's pretty irresistible.  Many people tell us that he's just too pretty to be a boy. He's a typical 2 year old boy most days, but he keeps me laughing and on my toes.  I can see that his compassionate heart coming out everyday, and that makes me so happy.  I'm definitely blessed by this sweet boy!
Happy Birthday Buddy!
