2 1/4 Years Update

2 1/4 Years Old
You are 2 1/4 years old!
October 27
No doctor appointment, so no official stats. And all the clothing is pretty much the same sizes (12 or 18 months clothes, size 6 shoes, size 4 diapers).
November 14
You are such a little person! Seriously, you are no stop, on the go, all the time. You still love tractors, trucks, and trains. Although a current favorite is sports. You love wearing clothes with baseball or footballs on it, and you absolutely love going to LSU baseball games with your dad. We actually signed you up to play soccer this year, and while you love the idea of going to soccer, you're not always as sure when you're out on the field with everyone else.
December 2
You still aren't a great eater. We can normally count on you to each chicken and it used to be strawberries, but not even that any more. You will normally eat breakfast, depending on the day eating frozen pancakes, croissants, granola bars, or scrambled eggs.
December 23
You've had some issues listening lately, I think resulting from wanting to do thing your way. Unfortunately that does mean we've gotten a few notes home for hitting or biting your friends.
December 29
Your favorite thing to do is playing in the toy kitchen cooking food or coloring. Although to be honest, at the very top of that list is whatever your sister is doing. Basically if she's is doing it, you're over there following her wanting to do it too.
December 31
When did attempt a first movie with you, How to Train Your Dragon Hidden World, unfortunately it didn't go that well. We actually wound up spending most of the movie in the lobby while your daddy and sister finished watching.

January 4
I'm a little in disbelief that you've gotten so big. You're practically a grown up at this point. I know we still have some big milestones ahead (potty training for one), but it's still a little crazy to me that you're not really a baby anymore and are practically a big kid!

Here's a comparison with your sister at 2 1/4 Years.

4 Years Update

4 Years
You're 4 years old! I can hardly believe it. Where on earth has the time gone?!?
August 21
At your 4 year doctor appointment you were 41 in tall (77th%ile). You weighed 29 lbs (6th%ile). You're mainly wearing 4t clothes and are still wearing size 9 shoes.
September 19
We've started reading chapter books at bedtime, and you're really enjoying them. So far we've read Socks and Beezus and Ramona, both by Beverly Clearly, The Rise of the Earth Dragon by Tracey West, and The Princess in Black by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale. On the other hand, on nights where your Daddy puts you to sleep you play board games together. Your current favorite is "Monsters" (Kingdom of Tokyo). According to him you love earning token and exchanging them to buy things.
October 6
It's finally gotten to the point where your brother is really old enough to play with you. It's awesome for you because now you have a playmate who is willing to do basically whatever you tell him to.
October 31
We're at the point where we've had a couple of teacher conference, and so far the message is the same, you're a leader, which is good, unless you're leading people to do the wrong thing. You definitely want to be in charge and want to make sure everyone is doing exactly what you want to do.
November 15
Of course, through this all you have some great friends. I is still a favorite, and C seems to be another great friend as well. And lucky for you a handful of your classmates will be with you when you start your new school next year.
November 16
You're so opinionated and you know exactly what you want. Of course what you think is always 100% correct. We've already gotten in a few arguments such as when you told me you KNEW you were getting invited to a birthday party even though we hadn't gotten an invitation yet. (Turns out, you were right!) Of course, I can already see what these fights will look in 10 years when you're a teenager!
December 2
You've gotten so big, and yet you're still so little. You still love being carried around. While you can go to the bathroom by yourself, you'd much rather have company with you when you do so. You still need 3 million things before going to bed (the fan on, the knot game, to kiss your cabbage patch dolls) and as much as I might complain walking back up the stairs each night, I know pretty soon you're going to be too big to tuck in... which is so crazy I can't even articulate!
