29 Months!

So my little booger butt is officially 29 months! I am to the point now that I have to go back and count from April to add the months up just to make sure that's his age. I just can't get over how fast time is flying. He is learning new things and it amazes me every day!

He has since started really feeding himself(I just liked feeding him) and he loves it. He talks in longer sentences now. A few of his favorite things to say are, "Keiser peed in here," "Momma chocolate milk," "Want go outside," and "More juice momma." He loves to get out of his crib and lay at the door looking under it and calling our names. He often wakes at night and wanders through the house(wonder who he gets this from) or comes straight to our room to tell me he has peed. He does scare me when he does this! He dresses himself and loves picking out his clothes, wearing sock and shoes. He tells me all the time to "Put shoes on momma." Oh and organization; he loves organization! I mean this child has to have everything in it's place. If someone leaves a paper towel on the table he will get it and take it to the trash. He even will ask can he throw things in the trash. If his clothes get dirty he takes them to the laundry room. If something is on the floor that belongs in a drawer he will put it there. I love it! :)

His naps are few and far between now. Well they have been for about a month now. He usually lays in his bed, stands in the window, dumps all his toys out, empties his drawers, sings or talks to himself rather than taking a nap. :)

This afternoon we got outside for a bit. He of course was trying to find the airplanes(haypanes) that he kept hearing in between chasing Keiser with his dump truck!

He weighs 30lbs. even and his height is marked on his wall. I have yet to measure it to see how tall he is. Happy 29 months Sugar Booga!

29 Months!

Books and more Books

I have to say that I just love the fact that my son seems to have my love for books. He will disappear on me and when I go to find him he will be tucked away in a corner, sitting in his(my rocker glider)chair or in the middle of the floor with a book just a reading(or what I would call reading since he's only 28 months). He has always played with books and loved looking through them ever since he was a baby. I am so amazed by how much he's intrigued with them. Can you tell I'm just excited?!

Several weeks ago I picked through all of Karli's books and took all the ones that were below her level out. She has tons of books. I tried pushing books and reading on her but it never stuck with her. She reads to get by at school but doesn't love doing it. So now Cam has many many books to look at. He's one happy bud.

So a few days ago he finds Goodnight Moon. Oh boy. It just piqued his interest and he has fallen in love with that book. He's always saying "Read G'Night Moon momma."

Tonight before bed I asked him, "Do you want momma to read Goodnight Moon?" He looked at me and then his daddy and gave off this huge smile and said, "Read G'Night Moon." I was so happy. So after giving daddy and his sissy hugs and kisses we went to his room. I got his blanky and wrapped it around him and began to read it. He sat there, leaning on my chest, so still and quiet. He was listening to every word. Close to the end of the book he started helping me turn the pages. When I was done I put him in his bed and he was off to sleep. I see this being an every night thing and I love it!

He LOVES Books

So after I came out of his room, Karli wanted to read me another chapter from her book. She's required to read so many pages each school year and although she doesn't like to read at all, she does do it. So we sat on the couch and I listened to her read me a chapter from Mercy Watson Thinks Like a Pig. She can read fairly well for someone who doesn't care to read for pleasure. She even wanted to read to me like her teacher does, where she holds the book to her and then shows me the pages once she's done reading the page.

I even took a little bit of video of her reading. When she realized what I was doing though she wasn't too happy. I just want to remember all of this. I can remember being in school and loving reading my books. They'd take me places that I'd never been and I could read about people and their lives. I loved the adventures I'd go on and my imagination would soar. I just wish she could have that same level of interest with books as I did. Either way I'm just glad she can read and will do it if she has too. I'm very proud of her.
