A few weeks ago now, Phinehas turned 2!
Some stats from the doctor:
- Weighs: 26 pound, 6 ounces which is 31st percentile
- Height: 35 inches, which is 63rd percentile
He’s such a joy to us! It really is fun watching kids discover new things. He’s still a huge fan of the vacuum (so much so that we got him a birthday cake with a vacuum on it!). For his birthday, he got a set of those MegaBlocks and has been stacking them all the time. He also got a train set from us, which he adores. We let him pick out 1 train car to sleep with each night. He also got a kid’s broom shaped like a bug and 3 dust pans & broom sets — kid loves to clean!
He’s definitely learning boundaries too. That’s been a real eye opener for Jeff & I — what it takes (consistency!) to train him and there are LOTS of times he chooses not to obey. He’s definitely learned that he doesn’t have to obey; that it’s a choice. Doing what we should instead of what we want is a life-long lesson to learn!
He sleeps about 11 hours at night (bed time at 7:00 p.m. right after we watch Wheel of Fortune while we drink our milk) and takes anywhere from 1.5 – 2.5 hour nap in the middle of the afternoon. He usually wakes up happy from overnight sleep, but mad from his naps.
He’s a typical toddler when it comes to eating — usually eats most things, but the quantity varies. Sometimes, he’ll eat just as much as I do and other times, he doesn’t seem to care. But he’ll eat just about anything. Loves cheese and “dip” (ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, whatever).
This being a mom thing is fun!
