Day 24- Happy 2nd Birthday Pate!

Pate, you are two years old today! My baby boy is getting so big now! I still feel like you are my baby, though! When I ask you , "Who's Mama's baby?" you point both hands to yourself! Love it. You are so good at running, throwing, climbing up and down stairs, balancing on rails, and climbing things you shouldn't. You have many more motor skills than Alabama did at two. You say about 25 words. You say Mama (672 times a day!), Dada, Papa, KahKah, Ju-Ju, Nana, Bo-Bo, Georgia, no-no (cutest word yet!),  tractor, truck, car, ball, school, church, juice, cup, boots, boat, pull, banana, boo boo, poo poo, more, nite-nite (so sweet!) and go. They are not all clear words, but ones we understand. You aren't putting any words together yet except for Go Dawgs!

You love anything with wheels and can spot tractors, and dump trucks, and fire trucks, and trains a mile away! You drive your cars and trains around the house all day. You like to color with Sister sometimes. Your favorite books are ones that have pictures of tractors and little words! ha! You like to sing Teddy Bear, Happy and you Know It, and the Wheels on the Bus. You like to watch Thomas, Sesame Street, Veggie Tales, and tractor shows. You would stay outside and play all day if you could! You are drawn to the dirt like a magnet!

You are so sweet and like to give hugs and kisses and high fives! You are also strong willed and want your way! When you get in trouble, you stop and look down and usually drop your passy out of your mouth. ha. You don't always want to obey, but you do love to be a helper and will put trash in the trash can and take things where I ask. When you don't obey, you will lay down in the floor and cry but after a few minutes by yourself, you are usually compliant! You still love your passy and sleep with it and have it in the car and you want it at home if you can get to it! You are sleeping 10 hours a night (usually waking between 7-8 now) and take a 2-3 hour nap most days.

You are a very picky eater but your favorites are bananas, chicken fingers, strawberries, grapes, pizza, cheese, pouches, yogurt, and pancakes....and anything sweet! You are the drinkingest boy ever and can suck down a whole sippy cup in like 2 minutes.

I know God has great plans for you and He is working even now in your life to fulfill them. I am so happy to be your Mama! I love you so so much and can't wait to see you growing more! You are so handsome I can't even stand it! Those sweet cheeks and long lashes and beautiful lips are just too much! I treasure each day with you and love spending them with you!
