Happy Twenty-One Month Birthday!

June 13, 2012

Dear Christian,

Happy Twenty-One month birthday!

Twenty-one month statistics: Weight: 31lbs 6 oz. Length: TBD inches. Diaper Size:5-6 Clothes: 24 months – 2T.

The word of the month is Choo-Choo! A couple weeks ago I bought a little wooden table with storage stools at a garage sale for $20. We put it in the front living room and brought up the tracks and trains. Your brother never really embraced the train thing, but you just love them.  You love playing trains and carrying them around. You also love reading train books. Two in particular are your faorites: A Crack in the Track (a Thomas book) and Chugga – Chugga Choo Choo by Daniel Kirk. We read them over and over and over and over again. I love watching you make the sign for train and pointing to other pictures you recognize.

Like your brother (and mom and dad) you love to read! Just the other day you wandered into your room and pulled yourself up into your rocking chair and just started reading quietly. By reading I mean flipping pages and talking to yourself in gibberish that we can’t understand. Check out the 21-month pic. My little reader – and check out the adorable overalls that Grandma made for you!

Speaking of gibberish, your language skills have certainly expanded this past month. So many words: chair, sit, surprise (yes, really!), brother (but you don’t say it often), poop, five, and lots of others. You love to give high five, followed immediately by fist bump. You are quite discerning though. We were at Robek’s the other day for our post hair cut smoothie and you refused to give a fellow customer a fist bump.

The past few weeks you seem to be napping better. Like I said last month, most days of the week include a 1 – 2 hour nap. That said, last week we had three days in a row with no nap – zero  - none – nada! Ah! Thankfully, we seem to be back on track.

We are looking forward to camping at the end of the month. I hope you have a good time.

Lots of love little one.
