Lovebug is 20.5 months old. Sit with that little fact for a second.
I feel like so much has happened since my last update. Like his language has exploded! All of a sudden he can say like 20 words. He was drinking his sippy of milk last night and handed the bottle to me and said “All done”. Then he looked at his pacifier on the table and said “Bink Bink”. It’s bizarrely cool that my toddler is full-on communicating with us now.
He also follows directions really well. I’ll ask him to pick something up off the floor and bring it to me. And he does it! And then we act like he just performed brain surgery…”THANK YOU GREYSON! What a good little helper you are!” and he delights in all the high fives.
He’s a lover of life, this kid. He’s still uber happy 90% of the time.
But hooboy, that 10% is becoming…interesting. Tantrums have started (nothing that quite rivals his sister yet, thank goodness!) and he’s started throwing things when he’s angry. He has definite opinions on what he wants to do and you absolutely cannot make him without brute force.
He’s mastered the head shake and a very firm NO.
He is also going through a bit of a whiny, needy phase too. He wants me to hold him a lot of the time when we’re home and follows me around and cries when I put him down. Hey I wanted a mama’s boy! #icreatedthismonster
He’s got a great appetite and loves to eat. Breakfast is typically dry cereal, yogurt and fruit. He eats most of whatever the school provides for lunch and has most nights has pasta, chicken and a pouch for dinner.
He’s a stellar sleeper. In bed by 7, up for the day by 5:30/6:00. He generally naps for 2 1/2 hours at school and longer on the weekends. I learned the other day that an overtired Greyson is no one’s friend. He only napped for an hour and a half and lost his mind from around 9:15 to 11. Fortunately, that doesn’t happen often.
He loves to run and tries to hop (cutest thing ever) and is a big fan of dancing. Either with a partner or without. (I’m already arranging his wedding with the delightful Vivan from daycare)
He is super silly, loves peek a boo (Where’s Greyson), his tool bench, knocking things over, and “reading” books.
He’s got a mouth full of teeth and delights in brushing them with his electric toothbrush. He’s in 18-24 month clothes, size 5 shoe and size 5 diaper.
Happiest Bug on the Block.
