Palmer is officially a two year old. Even though he very much acts like a two year old, and has been for the last few months, I still cannot believe how quickly he has grown. He is one very energetic, personable, smart and all around adorable little boy. We love him so very, very much! This is what is going on with Palmer at two years of age.
His stats: 36 inches tall, 28.8 pounds
He has learned: to say just about anything and communicate well, to open child-locked doors, to drink from a cup, to get his own cup of water, to help clean up (put away toys, wipe up spills, throw garbage away, put his dishes in the sink, etc.), to blow his nose, to match shapes and colors, to move chairs and stools around so that he can climb up and get to whatever he wants including a cup and pouring his own glass of water, to climb out of his crib, to say prayers (with help from Mom and Dad) and to count to three
He likes: The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, cleaning, reading books, going on walks or to the park, fruit snacks, string cheese, juice, popsicles, playing in water, baths with his brother Brody, balloons, bubbles, getting samples at Costco, going to the daycare and playing with friends
He dislikes: sharing, going down for naps or going to bed at night, having to sit still at church, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and staying at home all day
Things he does that makes us laugh: plays with Brody, makes sure to give a kiss on both cheeks (he tells us “other side” to make sure we get the second cheek), gives full on big kisses on the mouth to his little girl friend at the daycare, sings along with songs, overly animated expressions, calls a person's chest "babies" since his mom breastfeeds, mimics everything he sees us do, and a lot of giggles and laughs
