2 Year Well Visit:
- Weight: 24 lbs (10th %tile)
- He's always making sure we do the same things. If daddy takes off his shirt after work, he says "Ty Ty, shirt off too?". If we put socks on him, he wants us to put socks on as well.
- He prays before bed with the cutest prayer ever. Dear Geez-e-us, bank you for me, bank you for mama, bank you for dada, bank you for mimi, papa, gma, gpa, mom-mom-mom and mama Betty, in Geez-e-us name, AMEN!!!. Occasionally he also says he's thankful for cars and milk.
- He doesn't have the fine motor skills to be able to sign the alphabet yet, but he shocked me that he knows the entire alphabet when I sign it, even out of order.
- He knows all his colors in sign.
- He's known the upper case letters for awhile, but now he knows all of the lower case letters as well.
- He can recite the entire alphabet.
- He can count to 20. He can't say 13 yet, so he says 14 twice.
- He read his first word, stop, and not on a stop sign. He recognizes the word everywhere.
- How are you?
- See you later alligator.
- Hi Homey!
- Whenever he gets hurt, or when he just wants a kiss, he points to a knee or whatever and says "kiss it!" We kiss it and then he says in the cutest toddler voice, "all better".
- He says "thank you" every time he hands us something. A little backwards, but super cute.
- We took Tyler to his first outdoor concert. There was a family sitting on a blanket diagonally from us who had a 6 year old playing with monster trucks. Tyler could not stop pointing and starring at those trucks, he wanted them so bad. I told him to go show the boy his toy motorcycle and see if they could play with each other's toys. He slowly walked over and showcased his motorcycle, spun the wheels and played it's revving sounds. He was really selling it! For awhile it seemed as if the boy was going to ignore Tyler, it was so heartbreaking, but Tyler kept displaying his motorcycle until the boy was intrigued. They ended up swapping toys and Tyler played with the monster trucks all night. He was quite the salesman.
- One day he looked at my chest while I was getting dressed and said "Hello milk! How are you?". I laughed so hard! Speaking of milk, I finally threw out my 9 frozen bags of breastmilk I had worked so hard to collect back when Tyler was a wee little one. I was sad to throw them out, all that effort collecting when I barely had enough to feed Tyler, and I didn't even use it!
- One day the nanny was changing his diaper and he pointed to his "part" and said "big tee-tee!". I about died! That same week, he told Mimi that "daddy has a big tee-tee!". I guess he's become more aware of his anatomy this week.
I think he loves being serenaded by his Mimi
