Just one month away from TWO.
And so, At 23 Months Noah...
...weighs in at 24.5 lbs. Teeny Tiny Him!
...wants to do anything, everything, and MORE than Evan does. It's scary how much he sees and then tries to mimic.
..."announces" which sesame street character is on his diaper at every diaper change (Pampers baby dry brand!). Saying elmo, big bird, and ernie with clarity.
...Shouts out "BAY-BEEEEE" about any child 3 or under (doesn't obviously matter that they are older than him!) that we see while out - OR any "baby" spotted on packaging/posters in a store. OR any mention of a "baby".
...is obsessed with popcorn. This started as a diversionary tactic during Ev's tee-ball games, and Noah's has now come to discover that Target sells popcorn. And it's not a bad $1.29 to spend to keep him sitting nicely in the cart for a solid 45 minutes... (just sayin').
...says "ROARRRRRR" anytime he sees a dinosaur. Or when he puts on his dino rainboots (which are very loved, and often worn in and around the house - or to pick up Ev from preschool).
...loves playing trains with Evan - which is nice because it's made Evan play trains more than he has in a long while.
...still tells me "pop pop pop" while poking his belly (in reference to bubbles!).
...Is not interested in the slightest in Daddy putting him to bed at night if I am home. He will COME AND FIND me and insist that I put him to bed. And his cuteness is persuasive. :)
...loves to find Evan's abandoned lego minifigures and play with them as quietly and sneakily as possible until I discover what he's up to, at which point he will bring them to me handing them up and saying "momma" (as if he just found them and knows that they are not for him).
...LOVES both the beach AND capri suns. Announces "bea-ch" as we drive along A1A and can spot the beach down each through street. And Capri Suns have proven to be much easier for him to hold and drink than juice boxes - he thinks they're gold.
...And is super-silly and funny ALL.THE.TIME. Especially when he has an audience. ;)
