Weight - 27 lb. 25 percentile
Length - 35 inches. 79 percentile~You are quite the talker. Why do both my babies have the gift of gab?!? You are putting three and four word sentences together, but have the cutest habit of pausing after each word. Example "Daddy. Tired. Book. Bed" or "Mommy. Eat. Bars." You start each sentence by naming the person you are talking to.
~You are the sweetest, yet orneriest boy I've ever met. You often ask permission before doing an activity or action. And to ensure you get a yes answer, you cock your head, give your biggest smile, ask, and then follow it up by "Yes Mommy?? Yes??" Quite the charmer….just like your Daddy.
~You run. You throw. You wrestle. You tackle. You tickle. You are all boy.
~You have never been the best sleeper, but after our Kansas trip, reverted back to a 4am wakeup call and then refused to nap in the afternoons. After a few weeks with two exhausted and grumpy parents, you seem to have righted your wrong, and are hopefully back to sleeping a normal 11 hours at night with a two hour afternoon nap.
~You wear size 5 diapers, 2T clothes (for the length even though your shorts fall off that skinny waist), and size 6 shoes.
~Your favorite foods include watermelon, 'bars' (Kids Clif bars), 'spicy chicken' (tilapia, ha!), and applesauce.
~Your favorite activity is playing in the cul de sac with our neighbors and riding your bike. "Mommy. Bike. Fast. Outside. NOW!"
~You love to read books before nap and bedtime. Favorites include Goodnight Moon, 20 Trucks in the Middle of My Street, and Little Blue Truck.
~You continue to be the best snuggler and alternate between preferring Mom or Dad. You often ask for hugs or kisses before heading off to play. But your absolute favorite person in the world is your "sissy". Picking her up from school is your happiest time of day…you can not wait to see her, and you both run towards each other for huge hugs at pick up.
~You bring our family so much joy and laughter. We love you more than words, William Tommy.
