AJ - 2.2

Thank goodness for Danifred to remind me what I should be keeping up with :)

AJ is 2 years and 2 months. If it wasn't for my lost metabolism and carbs, I wouldn't need to work out. The little tot has me running around all of the time! I'm either chasing him down the street, literally, chasing him around the house or running to keep him from falling, knocking down/over, spilling, dumping or eating. You would think my house was a prison the way he takes off as soon as he steps foot outside.

AJ is still a copy cat. He mimics everything Seena does. If she's practicing a dance move, so is he. My favorite is when Seena does a twirl-kick combo. AJ gets right in there and does his own version and then walks away so confident you would think he landed a perfect triple axle flip. It's so darn cute.

AJ's favorite activity is pulling off the couch pillows and jumping on them.

AJ can actually sit in time-out by himself now....for 20 seconds.

As much as I don't want him to grow any faster than he already is, I am looking forward to him getting just a little older so that I can put him in some sort of activity. I'm considering the little soccer programs for him but I know that there is a class at our local fitness center that incorporates all sports, not just soccer, but the age starts at 2 1/2. I also thought about swimming but I feel like it's a waste of money for his age. Any thoughts?

AJ has now officially crossed over into Picky Eater territory. He decides to eat his food by plate/bowl appeal now. Gone are the days where he would eat anything. Perfect example would be the spinach soup I made last week. It was very tasty, especially with Parmesan Cheese sprinkled in it. He took one look at the green liquid and wanted nothing to do with it.

And lastly, I'm starting to get a little concerned with his lack of words. He talks, he is my child, but he's not talking talking. I can understand him and I know what he wants but I feel like he's not exactly where he should be. Our daycare provider noted it as well as was going to keep an eye on it as well.

All in all; for all of his craziness, he is so sweet and loving. And so darn cute.

He and Bean sound so much alike! I wouldn't be too concerned about his speech at this point. He may just have a language explosion in a couple of months.

Talking makes me nervous...after it starts, will it ever stop! Heehee...

He's adorable!

The Talking...

Muffin turned 3 this month. I just had him evaluated by the county school system. They came out to the house and worked with him. I now have some great tools to use! I would highly reccommend calling them. It will probably put your mind at ease. He is already doing better with my new "tools"!

Puck was a late talker too. They also said don't compare boys to girls;)
