half a month later i'm sneaking in with Noah's 22 month update.
we hit 22 months at the start of our "spring break" week, and the week just got away from me - with easter, passover, a trip to savannah, and another to south florida.
this was snapped in savannah... (i LOVE the little downtown streets there!)
(& honestly, I am just glad that I've managed to keep up thus far - and am almost through the 24 months that I wrote similar style updates for Ev...)
And so, at 22 Months Noah...
...still is hovering at around 24 lbs. I just went back to check and he's gained all of 4 lbs this past year. We're still rocking the 9 months infant sized shorts from target (bc that is all that will fit Mr SKINNY!).
...Makes lots of animal sounds on demand when asked. horse, cat, dog, cow, sheep, bird, goat to name a few.
...Has busted out a plethora of words in the past couple weeks. "beeee" (beach), "birrrr" (bird), "eh-an" (evan), "raffe" (giraffe), "wawa" (water), "bay-BEE" (baby), among more...
...Refuses to keep his shorts on at times, and makes a game out of taking them off when we're just hanging around the house. Similarly enough, he also refuses to keep his shoes on in the car - they are off within the first 5 minutes of our drive.
...still naps VERY well. usually from 2-4:30/5:00 every afternoon.
...LOVES toy story the movie best of all (and anything). When i let him "watch a show" he is not ok with just a "show" he wants TS1. And will say "no-no-no" when I try to select anything else. And then hand me the TS1 box and clap and yell "YAYYYY" when i put it on.
...likes to "ROOOOOAR" whenever he sees anything dinosaur-related. (or even a stuffed gecko for that matter!)
...will tell us "no.... no" (in the sweetest little soft voice) about anything that he's not sure he wants to do.
...LOVES gymboree class morning. and participates in ALL the activities (which makes me SO happy since evan was never a "group-participation kind of baby" ha).
...is enthralled with a target $1 spot sesame street "Bubbles" book. there's a part in it that goes "pop pop pop" where I make the point to pop pretend bubbles on his belly while reading, and i can hear (& see!) him entertaining himself on the video monitor in the morning after waking up in his crib) and saying "Pop Pop Pop" while poking his belly. (and i love that)
...is always on the go. and climbing SOMETHING. hence his "naughtypants" nickname. evan likes to ask me at preschool pickup time, what "naughtypants" things noah did during the morning while ev was away.
...is a bit obsessed with pointing out all the babies ("bay-bee") and water ("wawa") he sees.
...will pull out 12 (or more!) different books, pile them into the big rocker chair in his room, and then climb in and "read" them all to himself.
...and seems to know exactly when to grin & flash his little dimple at me. His timing is impeccable. :)
xo, mr. naughtypants. we love you.
