2 Years 6 Months

  • Has a weird obsession with Christmas books, but I see no correlation between them and Christmas (?)
  • His new favorite song to sing (accompanying himself on piano of course) is Jesus Loves Me
  • His new favorite song for us to sing before bedtime is the theme song from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood
  • Got his first black eye this month (can't believe it's taken him this long) in a dancing accident with his friend Eleanor, who he inadvertently pulled on top of him causing a chin to eye collision -- he was more upset that I turned off the music to comfort him then of his actual injury
  • The train obsession of 2017 continues
  • Has developed some new dance moves which include mostly just bobbing his shoulders up and down while his legs are spread apart
  • Really enjoys jazz music (particularly the variety associated with the Peanuts gang)
  • At this point the talking is non-stop and almost all understandable
  • Still loves reading books (see above photos) I often find him very quietly flipping through them spending time alone
  • LOVES play dough -- admittedly it is pretty fun
