Two and a Half Years Old

Will is 2 1/2 Years Old!!!

Will and Tiger

It amazes me how quickly time passes and how big Will has gotten. 

From what I can tell, Will is a typical two-year-old boy!  He is literally all over the place all the time. 

He is doing so much these days, it is hard to keep up with it all, but here are some highlights:

-He loves play.  Indoors or outdoors he doesn't care. 

-He loves people (most of the time).  Of course our families play big roles in his life so he loves spending time with his Pop, Mawmaw, Pawpaw, CC, Pawpaw and Shirley, and Uncle John. He constantly talks about them. We also have a core group of friends who love him so much and he loves being with them.  And his friends at school and church are his favorites: Colt, Gavin, Devin, Jason, Carson, Braylen, Logan, Jameson, Sawyer, and Caroline.  He also has a few "best fwiends". Sometimes that is me or Clay but most of the time it is Cody. Cody works at his daycare and goes to our church.

-He talks all the time.  Long sentences and paragraphs. He relays everything he is doing to us. I am so proud that he talks so well and even strangers understand him!

-He is such smart boy!  He knows his ABCs and can count to 13 or 14.  He knows all his colors and green is his favorite. 

-He loves to sing.  A few favorites are: Where is Thumpkin?, Jesus Loves Me, Jesus Loves the Little Children, Twinkle Twinkle, Little Bunny Foo Foo, The B-I-B-L-E, and the Jack's Hamburger jingle.

-He wears 2t clothes and size 7 shoe.

-We still talk about the potty a lot but he is still wearing Pull-Ups.  He was really interested a few months ago but that interest is almost completely gone now.  I know once he feels like going in the potty he will. We are not to the point yet where we want to push the issue too much.  Like our pediatrician always says "He won't go to college doing that." 

-He has the best personality. I wish I could bottle it up.  He is loving, independent, sweet, stubborn, funny, and everything in between. 

-He understands things around him so much better.  The meltdowns are not as often and I think that is because he is much more aware of cause and effect. He minds much better and listens and follows our instructions.

I can't believe he is two-and-a-half.  That blows my mind!  I can't wait to see how much he grows and how much he learns.  It is so fun being his mom.

And because nothing is ever "perfect", he are two outtakes from our photo session with Tiger:
