2 years old!


2 years old?!?! I cannot believe how quickly it goes by.  It makes me realize how much I need to cherish every minute.  My sweet toddler is an absolute joy and I cannot wait to see what he shows us next.  Every day is an adventure and we love seeing the world through his eyes.

Today we finally had his well visit.  He's been sick for two weeks but his doctor has been out and it wasn't really bad enough, long enough to see someone else.  Truitt is now 26.0lbs (with clothes and shoes on) which is 25% and the same curve he has been on for quite some time and 35.5in which is 90%.  He jumped up on height from 75%.  I honestly think it was 35.75-36in because the nurse didn't get his heel when she measured but oh well!  ***i just noticed I had typed 33in?!? Edited to correct it!***

Truitt is in 2T shirts, 24m pants (his length is ALL torso!), 7 shoes, and size 5 diapers!

I asked about his lack of desire for milk and Dr L isn't worried about it at all. He said as long as he has a diet with a lot of variety that includes yogurt, cheese, and beans (which happen to be three of T's favorites!) that we are ok.  A complete vitamin isn't necessary but if we'd like to give him one that's fine.

Truitt has well over 100 words and learns a few new words every week but he still has very few multi word phrases.  He does have quite a few two word phrases- fix it, bad dog, cheese stick, etc but no "I did it" "that's mine" "I love you."  Dr L said that at this point he isn't concerned at all but if he hasn't started with them in the next 6 months to come back in.

Other than that the visit went well and my boy is smart, healthy, and right on track for where he should be.  Truitt stopped nursing a week or two after turning 23 months.  He still refers to them as "night nights" and will latch on if he catches me without a shirt in the right spot (bath, bed, etc) but doesn't even try to get anything out, he just laughs.  He learned how to jump with both feet and now hops more than he walks it seems; he's just so proud of that skill! He consistently sleeps through the night going to sleep between 8 and 9pm and waking up at 8:30 almost daily.  He's in our bed but we are going to work on transitioning him into his own room sometime in the next 5 months.  Most days he will take one nap for about an hour and a half but some days, like today, he goes without.  He is a wonderful eater and rarely refuses any type of food.

Truitt, you are the best thing that has happened to me and I love you more than words can ever express!!!

  1. What a handsome little man! I love that he has the same birthday as Audrey, and seeing how they are similar and different as they grow. Happy Birthday, Truitt!
