When did this happen?

When my child grew up, I'm not sure. I blinked my eyes and missed it! But what a joy it has been to have this little guy in our lives for the last 2 years! He is learning new things every day and surprising us just as often.

I must say he gets more and more handsome every day!

At 2 years old:
-He loves Mickey mouse and all his friends. After disneyland this year, he can't get enough of everything Mickey. He knows and can name all of the mickey mouse clubhouse characters.
-He talks all the time and is starting to use 3 word sentences more and more like "I want some" "I try it" "I do it" stuff like that.
-LOVES to groove! He is a little dancer and I must admit, he has some moves! Watch out ladies! He will swing his hips anytime he hears music.
-His favorite toys are cars, trains and helicopters and he lines his cars up bumper to bumper like a train.
-Still a good eater. Especially loves watermelon, strawberries and chocolate milk. Loves to have cereal so he can drink the milk out of the bowl
-Transitioned to a "big boy bed" with no problems at all!
-He likes to pretend to be a pirate, but not just any pirate, a scary one. He will say "aaaarrrggh.... pirate.... scary....AAAAAHHHH!"
-Will point out familiar things he sees like tractors, trucks, helicopters, animals, airplanes etc when we see them.
-His favorite movies right now are Monsters inc., Toy Story 3 and Cars
-He is so very smart! He picks up on things very quickly and remembers it
-He can repeat the abc's and can say parts of it by himself particularly  "O, P, Q" but "W" is his favorite to say
-He can count to 5 by himself, almost to 10 now with a little bit of help
-He can do the actions to "Popcorn Popping" and "Daddy's Homecoming" all by himself
-Loves to sing"ring around the rosies" and the "Hokey Pokey"
-Loves to help say prayers.
-Becoming more possessive. Everything is his and if even the dog tries to sniff it he pulls it away and says "mine. stop it!" I have to remind him that Koda is NOT going to steal his chocolate milk from him - he's a dog.
-Makes us laugh EVERY day!

It has been so fun watching him learn and grow and he is such a good, chill kid that he has made it pretty easy on us so far too!
