Peter – TWO YEARS OLD!

The “baby” is no longer a baby; he’s officially a toddler now! Peter, we wouldn’t change you for the world, and we couldn’t imagine our family without you! Daddy and I are so incredibly thankful that God heard our prayers for just one more.

  • He’s weighing 30 lbs
  • Measuring 35 inches (no growth spurt in the past month-we had hoped he’d shoot up a few inches)
  • Most of the details from last month are still the same
  • The rest of his two year molars are in
  • Had his first dentist visit and HATED IT! Screamed the entire time and refused to let anyone look in his mouth
  • Just in the last few days is words have EXPLODED…so many, it’s crazy!
  • If Daddy’s around he wants NOTHING to do with Mommy…he wouldn’t even take a nap for me the other day, because Daddy was home and hadn’t put him to bed.

From now on I’ll only be posting about him every 6 months, until he’s 5.

Peter – 23 Months

Peter ended up having his well-child visit a month before schedule, due to a lovely rash he’s developed on the back of his one thigh (nothing serious). He’s the picture of two year old health!

  • Weighing 29.5 lbs (he wouldn’t stand on the scale, so they had to weigh me and him together and then me separate…lovely moment, and I’m not sure how accurate it is…I think he’s pretty close to that though)
  • Standing 34 3/4″ tall (so far he’s going to be the shortest of my boys..estimated 5’10”)
  • Wearing a 2T in most things…starting to wear some 3T, but not much
  • Wears a 7/8 in shoes
  • One of his two year molars is finally through…these things have been a beast
  • Getting to be a bit of a sassy-pants with his “Nos”
  • Loves being outside…he stands at the door and just repeats “Out, go out”
  • Loves splashing around in the water, whether it’s a puddle, tub, or bath
  • Starting to use the regular swings like a big boy
  • Isn’t happy if he’s not running with the big kids. They’ll run races in the backyard and he’s trying his darndest to keep up
  • His new trick is pushing the ride on (pedal powered) John Deere tractor. He’ll push it to the top of the hill and then ride it down, laughing hysterically the whole way. He’s gotten thrown off a few times, but just scowls and then gets back on.

Peter 22 Months

  • Measuring 34″ tall, which was what he was 3 months ago…I’m thinking this is not correct, or he’s just going to have a growth spurt soon
  • Weighing 30 lbs
  • The canines are FINALLY through!
  • Still squeezing into some 18/24 months clothes, we did have to move him up in the shoes though
  • Loves, LOVES jumping on the trampoline (by himself)
  • His words are getting more impressive
  • He’s starting to actually have conversations with us. It’s so fun that he’s communicating, even if not every word is discernible
  • He likes blowing bubbles
  • He always wants to be outside….it’s so stinkin’ cute when he asks to go outside.

Peter 21 Months

Yea, I’m bad…totally late on this one. I’ve back-dated it, so at least when I go to find it, it’s not completely missing.

  • Fighting the naps
  • The bottom two canines are finally through…let me tell you…the teething has been hellacious with this boy…poor kid.
  • Lots more words…light, blankie, dog, boy, and trying to say the kids’ names
  • Hopping on two feet
  • Managing the stairs better, particularly going down
  • He’s becoming a little bit of a grump butt…not going to lie. I think it’s mostly because of his teeth, but MAN! He’s full of demands and temper tantrums
  • Loves ram-rodding around with the big kids (they love when he’s outside with them).
  • He is a DADDY’S BOY…no doubt about this. If Matthew’s home, he refuses to be with mommy.

Peter 20 Months

FullSizeRender

  • 28 lbs (he’s a lightweight compared to Henry and James at 20 months, they were both 33lbs)
  • Words: Please, thank you, Mommy, Daddy, Avie, Henry, Jamie, Ellie, Bye, baby, dog, and a bunch of others
  • Quickly growing out of his size 6 shoes…his boots still fit, but his sneakers can’t even get on his feet
  • Size 18 months are getting too short on him and he is definitely filling out his 24 month outfits
  • Running and lots of hopping
  • Says “no” to absolutely everything
  • FINALLY his canines are poking through…just the tiniest bit, but they’re there…all 4 of them at once (Has 12 teeth, plus one of the canines)
  • He is definitely becoming more and more of a daddy’s boy. I ask him for a kiss and he gives me his head, Matthew asks and he gets a hug and a kiss
  • He loves playing boop with noses
  • Loves trying to “hide”, whether it’s peekaboo or putting a blanket over his head
  • We’re still trying to figure out naps…somedays we get two, somedays it’s one
  • The boys’ favorite thing about Peter is that he’s cute and he plays with them (Henry calls him “The Cuteness”); the girls’ favorite thing is (I have to add it in…they’re not here to ask right now)
