Our Sweet 2 Year Old

We celebrated Isaac's 2nd birthday last Friday.

I can't believe that my littlest man is 2!

He was so excited to celebrate and we had a wonderful day filled with lots of fun (so much fun that I have a whole post devoted to it).

He is such a sweet boy who truly brings laughter to our house daily.

He wants to be just like his big brothers so bad and is constantly imitating them and following them around the house.  They are pretty good about letting him tag along and including him.

His vocabulary is exploding daily and it is sure fun to hear him putting words together in sentences.

He adds the letter a to most words and does this most adorable thing where he will ask you for something and then say okay before you can answer.  So he will say, "A-choca milk? okay." "A-watch-a mooovie? okay." He gets so excited and is so adorable it is often hard to say no.

He still adores Olivia and spends his day loving her and "helping" me taking care of her.

He LOVES chocolate milk, fruit, cereal, almonds and applesauce.

He also loves sweet things. 
(wonder where he gets that from?)

He continues to be very busy and sleeps from about 830pm to 7am.  He usually takes a 1 to 2 hour nap each day, but has been having a hard time falling asleep while picking up Elijah from preschool at 1130 and doesn't seem to be able to go back to sleep again. 

He LOVES trucks, trains, and cars (which is new for us). Jonah and Elijah didn't get into them quite like Isaac has.  His favorite toys are Thomas the Train (and friends), Elmo, and characters from Toy Story.

He loves to read and could sit and read for hours, which is so much fun.

Some of his favorite books are Little Blue Truck, lift the flap little people books, Pajama Time, Elmo books, Thomas the Train books, and books about trucks
(and no I did not properly cite these books and yes I am aware of this)

He sleeps with his blanket and a little stuffed Elmo nightly. 

He also really enjoys cleaning....weird huh? (he doesn't get that from me)

He will often "weeps the floor" aka sweep, or take the vacuum out and start pushing it around.

This is helpful when I really do want to clean because he follows me everywhere and I conveniently am able to know where he is and get work done. 


   It is amazing to think how much you have changed and grown in the past year!  You are such a delight to us and we are so blessed to have you in our family.  The past month has been refreshing as I believe you have finally accepted life with a baby sister.  You have been doing so well with following directions, obeying, and listening.  I am learning to cherish each "good"day we have and be thankful the "tough" days are fewer than a few months ago.  

   I love watching you with your big brothers and baby sister.  You love them so much and it is so sweet.  If I ever give you something to eat or a piece of candy you are quick to ask for one for your brothers and make sure they are included. I am also enjoying a little more one-on-one time together with you while your brothers are at school.  

  You are our biggest boy yet weighing in at 32 lbs and measuring 37 1/2 inches tall!  You love playing hockey or ball downstairs and being outside.  Driving in the car is so exciting for you as we see many different trucks and cars, which you LOVE.

   You are very independent, a little too independent at times helping yourself to a drink in the fridge in the middle of the night, or bringing supplies (milk, chocolate syrup, a cup) to me to make you some chocolate milk no matter where I am in the house.  You also LOVE to help and get upset if I ask your brothers to do something and you don't get to. You often get mad and tell me "I got it, I got it" while pushing them away. 

  You love going to daycare to see "Grandma Helen" and your friends, but days I am home you frequently tell me "Momma home, Icass (what you call yourself) happy.  You also get really excited at the end of the day when we pick up your brothers from school or when daddy gets home.  Going to Grandma and Grandpa's house is SO exciting for you and seeing them or your Auntie Nikki, Uncle Tom or Auntie Laura makes you so excited. 

   You also enjoy singing to yourself ( Wheels on the Bus, Jingle Balls (bells), Twinkle Twinkle are some of your favorites).  It is quite adorable to hear you singing away when you are supposed to be napping or when you are playing by yourself. 

   We love you so much and look forward to watching you grow and learn!  Happy Birthday Buddy!
    Love Your Momma
