Zach is 2!

My baby is 2 as of yesterday.  I still can't believe it.  He is such a hilarious little guy and is growing into his personality.  He brings so much joy to our lives and we can't wait to see how he continues to grow and develop.

He is 24 lb and 4 oz, putting him in the 20-25% and 32" long, putting him in the 30%.

He wears size 2T and the pants finally fit his short little legs.

Still in diapers, we're working on using the potty.  He was doing well with it, and then flat out refused.  He may or may not go to high school in a diaper at this point.

He still naps, praise the lord!  We head upstairs for bed around 8:15pm.  We wash hands, face, and brush teeth before we read books and pray.  He is usually out by 8:45pm at the latest.  He naps anywhere from 2-3 hours after lunch.

His favorite foods are peanut butter toast and chicken nuggets...and donuts.  The donuts are probably my fault.  They have been a pregnancy craving so we get one when we go to the grocery store if he is a good boy during the shopping.  He eats a little bit of everything.  Vegetables are a tough sell and we hide them in foods.  He is a sugar kid, maybe because he doesn't get a ton he gets super excited about it.  We kept telling him it was his birthday and he just kept responding "birthday cake!"

He did not want to blow out his candle, he just wanted to burn the wheels (oreo's) of the cake.
His favorite thing ever is tractors.  Trains are a close second.  After his birthday party this weekend it looks like we're running a small John Deere store.  He has to bring one of his tractors with him everywhere and wants to go to Nana and Papa's to ride their gator everyday....multiple times a day.  He can ride in the gator or a tractor for hours.  I cannot wait for harvest, he is going to lose his baby mind riding with Papa.  He also knows the difference between all the farm equipment...do not try to tell him a hay wagon is a hopper wagon, he will tell you what is up with some sass.

He talks so so so much.  He takes after his daddy and is going to be the life of the party that makes friends anywhere he goes.  His vocabulary is expanding everyday and he surprises us with what he knows everyday.  He uses full sentences, counts to 10 (always forgetting 5), knows the first bit of the ABC's, and apparently knows some letters.  He surprised us by pointing out the H in his Happy Birthday sign and going "H".

Making sure to feed his new toy deer some cake.
He goes to daycare 2 times a week and loves playing with his friends.  He asks to go on the weekends and runs to his room every time we go.  He also loves the library....like weirdly loves the library...he gets that from his mama.

We love this kid to the moon and back, even if he does make us want to bang our head against the wall sometimes.  No and mine are big in his vocabulary now.  Thank you for making us smile everyday with your phrases such as "I farted mommy", "I love tractors", and so much more.
