Can you believe it?! Our baby boy isn’t a baby anymore. He is a handsome little strong willed toddler that is so amazing in so many ways! Just like I was with Ethan, I am sad in a way that he is not a baby anymore but I am excited to see who he becomes. Everyday is so different- he says so many words and is so funny, each day we are surprised in one way or another with him. PJ and I always will say ” did you hear what he just said” “did you see that?!” He is so funny and pretty much everything he does just makes us laugh…. a lot! He is learning so much, he looks up to his best friend and brother Ethan and says new words and phrases daily. He knows all of the words to his favorite- The Wheels on the Bus and Baa Baa Black-sheep. He is starting to get the hang of the ABC’s and he can bust out the lyrics and moves to any song from the Greatest Showman and Moana. He is an amazing little boy who is so curious and always following Ethan around. We love him so much.
He makes the silliest faces and we cant get enough of them. He will squish his face together into this adorable little smile with his eyes closed- which we have named “Scrunch Face”, he will stick out his tongue and also do a really funny surprised face just to make you laugh. He expressed excitement with high energy screaming and chanting “yay, woohoo”!
He is a broad dude who weighs a whopping 30 lbs and he is wearing 2T/3T shirts and 2T pants. He loves to jump and throw himself down to the ground for fun! He will scream ” Cannonball” every time he does it. He loves to read books- his favorites are anything that has to do with trucks, and Goodnight Moon. He knows his colors and is starting to get the hang of counting! He started gymnastics in January and has been loving it! We go to the gym a lot a he loves that he gets to play there!
Henry loves trying new foods! He is a great eater ( for the most part) and his favorite foods are hummus and avocado! He knows a few words in sign language but he talks really well so he uses his voice more.
He is obsessed with his brother Ethan. I always say “ahh monkey see monkey do!!” He does whatever Ethan does! They have their moments where they fight a little but most of the time they are best friends and play together so nicely! It’s makes me so happy.
He rarely sits down unless Elmo, Super Wings, or Boss Baby is on the TV. If you ask him what his name is he will tell you “Boss Baby” and he will say it proudly! It’s true…. he really is a boss baby. He made his first build a bear for his birthday and that is something he loves to cuddle with at night when going to bed. He will say ” Ethie go night night? dada go night night? mama go night night?” Every time he goes down for a nap and/or bedtime just to be sure he isn’t missing anything!
I could go on and on and on about him (and his brother). Everyday he does something hilarious and says something new. As hard as tantrums are, he is still so fun to be around and I forgot that this age is really neat to watch as they learn and explore all around them. He is so interested in using the potty and has filled up a sticker chart with 50 spaces for using the potty! He is still in diapers but that is a big milestone for having the interest and actually trying. He will tell me “I go pee pee on potty!” and he will go and get the stool to do it.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Its’ a collection of images I took specifically for his 2nd birthday. He got his first hair cut the day before, and then we went outside where I followed him around catching his personality on camera for a few minutes. I started creating Family Year Books starting with 2014 and while I am still working on them to be caught up by the end of the year, I am excited to have nice photos of him to add to our 2019 book.
