Wow how time flies when you are having fun. Aiden turned 2 on January 9th and seems to have turned into a new child at times. He is way more demanding, more verbal, and says “no” a lot more and in a much different way. He has grown up in so many ways and is still my baby in others. He still wants me to sing him farashaka before bed and he loves to snuggle. Plus I know he is still my baby because he will still give me a million kisses if I ask for them. He has grown up a lot though because he has no interest in listening at all most of the time which isn’t that much different from before but now he smiles as he ignores what you requested. He still loves the Backyardigan’s but his new loves are soccer and anything to do with pirates. He is obsessed with both. He loves taking about, watching and doing anything that has to do with either. In fact he just brought me a pirate eye patch that I have been requested to wear. Now I have two. One time I made the mistake of showing him how funny I looked with one over both eyes. Now I always get two
He still loves most food but I think he would eat pizza all the time. He would also drink milk 24 hours a day if we would let him. We just got back from his 2 year check up and found out that he is now in the 25th percentile instead of the 10th which he has been in since he was born. I am so excited. His height is now 33 inches and he weighs 26 pounds. Its so exciting to see him growing so much. We can try peanut butter now, we can give him skim milk instead of whole milk, we are supposed to limit his milk to 16oz which we have never done. Its another new milestone in his life and that makes me excited and also sad cause my big boy isn’t my baby anymore.
Aiden is such an amazing little monster (as I like to call him most of the time) and I can’t wait to see what new adventures he has in-store for me now that we get to spend some more mommy Aiden time together.
