Two. Years. Old.

(alternate title - When the Eff did this Happen?!)

(So last year I took a picture of him in this crown and I thought I'd do it every year for the comparison. It went over really well this year, as you can see.)

Height: 37 inches (97%)
Weight: 28 lbs 5 oz (54%)

Dear Milo,

Last Friday you turned 2. TWO YEARS OLD. Which is weird because I'm pretty sure we just celebrated your first birthday like 5 minutes ago. And you were only born like 10 minutes before that. Right?
In the last couple months you have finally started to pick up a few words. You can now say wow/whoa/ow, done, juice, night night, two (as in if someone starts counting you'll sometimes chip in on two, and you're working on three), uh oh. You still jabber all the time too, and I know the words will come on your schedule! Even though you don't have many words I know you understand when we talk to you.
You're so smart too. You like to try to say the letters and numbers when your in the bathtub with them. You're practically a genius with the phones and iPad. You love to play will all manner of cars and trucks, anything with wheels really. So of course its no surprise that your most favorite movie is Cars and you'd watch it over and over if we let you!
Because of your lack of words, and you know, your age, you definitely have your fair share of tantrums. Or maybe I should say TANTRUMS. Because, oh boy are you dramatic and so sensitive. But on the other hand you can usually turn it off and on pretty quickly and be back to all smiles and laughing in no time. It can be very trying for all of us, you included I'm sure! But you're still our sweet boy and I know the tantrums will decrease when you can tell us what you want.
You've become very picky about food. You love pancakes, oatmeal, pizza, pbj, and McDonalds chicken nuggets. Getting you to eat any vegetables and almost any fruit is impossible nowadays! I really hope you grow out of this stage soon because pbj is getting pretty old!
And perhaps the funniest thing about you lately is your absolute HATRED for wearing clothing. It started with just socks a couple months ago and now its all clothes that you full on hate. Its the middle of winter and your always running around in your diaper! But, you do love your shoes still. Any and all shoes! In a perfect world you'd only wear a diaper and shoes - so silly!
Milo, the last two years have been the happiest and most fun ever, all thanks to you. We love you so much!
