twenty months

twenty months.  this is a trying time for both toddlers and their mommas.  b is learning something new every day, saying new words, doing new things and is a big ball of laughter and energy... but with that comes frustration, a need for independence, refusing to eat {almost everything} and tantrums.  
oh, the tantrums.

some of b's favorite things right now are all things trucks {as evidenced by the monster truck he has a death grip on in every photo}.  construction trucks, semi-trucks, pickup trucks, trash trucks, tractors, and choo-choos.  he points out every.single.truck we see if we are out driving.  he is becoming very attached to his blanket, which he calls "B", and still has to have his stuffed elephant, "elle" that he chews on, at bedtime {yuck!}.  he likes to play with bubbles, draw with chalk and play on the playground at the park and to play with the ipad.  He still loves elmo, and also loves watching 'thomas the train' and 'chuck the truck' on netflix.   
diaper changes are still a fight, but b is starting to tell us when he needs his diaper changed.  we bought him a little elmo potty that he sits on a few times a day, but we haven't had any successes yet.  
b is wearing size 5 shoes, and his clothes are ranging from 12-18 month shorts, 18-24 month shirts and 24 month pajamas.  we are still squeezing the life out of a few 18 month size pj's that we just aren't ready to part with yet!
b is really enjoying school, and is going 4 days a week.  typical school hours for b are 7:30am-6pm with a few early 6am days thrown in to keep everyone on their toes.  our little man is still a good sleeper, and puts himself right to sleep after being put into his crib.  bedtime is about 8pm and he sleeps until 7 on school days and sometimes up until 8:30-9am on weekends!  i am so thankful b has always been a good sleeper.  
that's all for now.  be back again soon!

  1. Rocking - thanks for the update. Kiddo is killing it. I should find some time and take a bit of video of the train in town. You know they do a big gala thing at the end of the Summer and disguise the Steam engine as Thomas. It's a big thing for the kids in the region.
