Theodore: 2 1/2 Years Old


Theodore Joseph,

Our baby boy, you are 2 1/2 today!  What happened to the're still suppose to be little.

You weigh 26 lbs and are 34.5 in. tall

Wearing size 5 diapers for day and night time.  Haven't "officially" started potty training yet, but tonight you insisted on going before bath time.  Then went right after bath time as well.  We'll officially train after the new year kiddo.

You wear size 24 month pants, 2T tops, 2T PJ's and 7 shoe

Your favorite foods are cheese, bread, puffs, veggie sticks, cheese rollups and fruit.  You're a picky eater, but have learned that if you don't eat what mama serves, you go hungry.

You go down around 7pm at night and up at 8am.  You sleep with your doggie "ruff ruff", blue blankie and white blankie.  If they're not all in your bed, sleep doesn't happen.  You also nap each afternoon from around 1pm-3pm.

Your asthma has been much much better!  Yay!!  You haven't been to the ER since this summer.  We're so happy about this.  Glad you're feeling better and your breathing's staying under control.  You take a control medicine everyday through your inhaler.  This seems to be helping a lot!

You're starting to talk a lot and repeat everything!  We can't understand everything quite yet, but you still chat away.  Madelyn tries to interpret for us.  We like to ask you to say certain words because they're funny.  One is "chips and dip" another is "cocoa puffs".  So funny.

Some of your favorite shows are Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Doc McStuffins and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  You'll actually sit through most of a show which is a nice break for us sometimes.

You enjoy playing soccer and anything involving balls.  You'll kick the soccer ball around the house saying "kick, kick, kick" over and over.  Then you'll try shooting a basket with the basketball and say "miss!!" when you miss it.  You'll do this over and over again.

You're starting to sing songs and recognize them when they come on the radio.  Some of your favorites are "Jesus Loves Me, "Jesus Loves the Little Children, "Mighty to Save", "How Great is Our God", "Row Row Row Your Boat"

Some of your favorite activities are Legos, tag, hide and seek, riding your friends "cars" outside, playing with your "tracks" and cuddling with anyone who will sit still with you.

You LOVE your sister so much.  You also like to tease her.  It drives her crazy and you know it.  Oh sibling rivalry begins early!

You also love "reading" books.  You'll makeup words and say some that you remember are in there.  You love when we read to you as well.

You have such a sweet personality and good heart.  You have the biggest smile and funniest giggle.  We love to hear you laugh little boy.

Love you kiddo!

-Mommy and Daddy
