2 years old!

Wow, 2 years has come and gone! I cant even remember what life was like before our sweet baby boy! Cliche but true! Here is an update on everything BRETT!!

Height: 35in (67%)
Weight: 32lbs (89%) He is solid!
Diapers: size 5 or 6
Shirts- 3T
Pants- 2T, but he needs a belt and the legs are a little long :)
Shoes: 7 1/2- 8

Brett talks all the time! He has really started to put sentences together and is getting better everyday! He loves to be outside and when he is inside he likes to play with trucks, pretend to cook, and chase our dog, Kali. 

He goes to bed at 8:30 and sleeps until 7 or 7:30 and naps about 1 1/2- 2 hours a day.

Brett has quite the feisty personality and has a little temper that comes out too! Mostly with Josh. When he gets mad he grits his teeth and starts smacking Josh on the legs arms or where ever.....don't worry we don't let him get away with it!

Brett's favorite foods are fruits and veggies...seriously! He loves broccoli, peas and green beans, and they are usually the first thing he eats off of his plate. He also loves bananas and oranges- I actually keep the oranges hidden because he wants one every time he sees them!

We took the front rail off of his crib a few weeks ago and he is doing great....except that he is going thru a phase (I hope its a phase- and a short one!) where he wont go to sleep unless someone is in his room with him.....I have almost fallen asleep on the floor in his room a few times this week! 

We went to the Beach last weekend for my niece's gymnastics competition and a little R&R. Brett had so much fun at the beach, that I wish we lived there! He played in the sand and water for hours! He dug hole, filled up dump trucks, and even helped some big kids catch fish!

On Brett's actual Bday (Tuesday) we went to dinner with the family and I made him a birthday cake!

Where have I been???

Wow! I think this is the longest I have waited between blog posts! We have been busy with everyday life and there isn't much down time for blogging between working and chasing our wild little boy! Brett will be 2 years old in 2 short weeks and I am trying to get a party thrown together! Since Brett is 1 million percent boy, we will be having, what else, a sports themed birthday! The kid loves sports....or balls that are used in sports, so it only seemed fitting!

Speaking of sports, that is also the (semi) theme of his new big boy room that I have started planning! We recently removed the front railing of Brett's crib and put up a toddler rail. He has been a champ and has yet to climb out of his bed, or refuse to go to sleep. He actually runs into his bed every night after his bath now! Hopefully he will continue with this!

Another thing I have been thinking about is potty training. I have heard a few people tell me about the 3 day potty training boot camp and I think I will try that sometime soon. I know Brett is ready, but I dont know if I am! The boot camp requires you stay home for 3 days straight and that makes me nervous! I like need to get out of the house a few times with a busy toddler! So, my goal is to start sometime between now and thanksgiving. I dont want to throw him in a new bed, a new room AND take him out of diapers too close together!

Here are some recent pics of our life lately and a few trips to the best kid place EVER, Catch Air. Brett absolutely LOVES this place and I have fun there too! :)
