22 months

Today Noah you are 22 months old! Which means you will be the big two in two short months. Oh my. I'm getting a little teary eyed. How can that be?

-You are one busy, busy boy! You are always on the go.

-You are still in size 5 diapers.

-When you don't get your way or if you are mad about something, you let out some kind of an animal sounding scream/growl, and your face turns really red. It makes Mommy laugh every time.

-You are a good little napper. Every morning around 10 am you happily lay down for your morning nap. And lately you've been sleeping 2-3 hours! How did Mommy get so lucky?


-Mr. Noah you love to loudly stomp throughout the apartment. And you think it is so funny. I'm pretty sure our neighbors below aren't very happy with us right now.

-You hate brushing your teeth ... again. I blame it on the Veggie Tales toothbrush that no longer plays your favorite tunes.

-Your feet are getting so big. I can't believe you are in a size 5 shoe!

-I love how you sign "bath" every night by hitting your chest like a gorilla. It is so cute!

-You are a pro with your fork and spoon. You have been for several months now. I am so amazed at how well you feed yourself.

-You continue to sign to us when you want something. We are so proud of you! Here's what you've been signing lately:
  • You sign "down" when you want off the bed.
  • When you are finished with a meal you sign, "finish."
  • When you are hungry you tell us by signing, "eat."
  • The other evening you were eating ice cream in your highchair and decided that you didn't want to sit and eat it; instead you wanted to walk around the house and eat it. Of course, Mommy couldn't let you do that, so when you got out of your highchair, I had to take the ice cream away. As soon as you were out of your highchair, you came up to me and signed, "ice cream, please." It was so hard not to give it to you right then and there. It was so sweet!
-You are a little fishy in the water. We have taken you down to the pool a couple times this summer, and you just love it. It's so much fun watching you splash and play.

-You go to bed between 7 pm-8pm every evening. You are such a sweet little guy and never fuss or cry when Mommy or Daddy puts you to bed. You always go straight to sleep.

-You are wearing 18-24 month size clothes right now. You do wear a few 2T things, but it really depends on the clothing and where it is from.

-Foods you love right now are:
  • M&M's {thanks to Papa}
  • Pumpkin Waffles
  • Hot dogs
  • Apple Sauce
  • Bananas
  • Spaghetti {especially with meatballs}
  • Mommy's Weight Watcher Chocolate Muffins
  • Graham Crackers
  • Mac & Cheese {one of your absolute favorites!}
  • Yogurt

- You still love to play with balls! We have so many balls around the apartment. I lost count a long time ago.

-You love to play on Mommy & Daddy's bed. And you love to be "body slammed" on our bed as Daddy puts it. I am always telling your Daddy to be careful! Guess I better get used to the rough housing, huh?

-You have been doing this thing lately where you take a drink of water from your sippy cup, and then you transfer the water in your mouth to another cup. You're such a silly boy.

-You are very vocal with Einstein about not coming near you when you have food in your hand. It doesn't matter where I am in the apartment, I can always hear you loud and clear as you yell, "Nooooo!" Funny guy.

-Your new favorite Veggie Tales is "Moe & the Big Exit." You love it!

You are growing up so fast. I am so proud of you and all you have accomplished. I love you so much sweet guy!

That's great that he is learning sign language! How sweet he must have looked signing "ice cream, please." Almost 2 years old! Wow!

Oh wow! I always love reading the milestone posts that you do about Noah. I can't believe that he's almost 2!!! Such amazing little boy he is!!!! I can't wait for Grace to become a pro at using a fork and spoon. Yeah we're still working on that right now. Hopefully soon though! At first would you just sit him in his chair and let him have it, or would help him out a little bit with a using the utensils?
