20 Months

COLTON - You are 20 months old!!!
You are growing so fast!!  I cannot believe how big you are getting!

You weigh 21 pounds and wear size 18 month clothes, size 5 shoe and size 4 or 5 diapers.

You are still a great eater however there are a few things that you used to eat but now you turn your nose up to.  Generally you are a very good eater!  

You are getting better at feeding yourself.  Just this week you preferred holding your banana at breakfast instead of me cutting it into slices.  You love to feed yourself yogurt and applesauce.  

You are a great sleeper and napper.  You take one good 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon and sleep from 7:30/8PM to 7:30/8AM.  

You sometimes fall asleep on the way home from preschool but you are getting better at staying awake til we get home.  

You are the sweetest little snuggle bug.  You love to give hugs and kisses.  You are so friendly and love everyone.  You are so happy and easygoing.  

You have definitely entered the terrible two's.  You want what you want when you want it.  When you don't get your want you throw yourself on the floor and throw a oscar-winning tantrum.  

Your defense mechanism is a scream.  This happens usually when your brother takes your toys or you want what he has and can't have it.  You do listen when we tell you no.  

(I pulled the camera out to take your picture and immediately you sat down right here and smiled big for the camera!  You are so cute!!!)

You are saying more words.  They aren't very clear but I can tell you are really trying to repeat and say words.  

You love to read books.  You will bring me a book and want to crawl up in my lap and read.

You are definitely a momma's boy and want me to hold you 24/7.  Though I would love nothing more than to snuggle and love on you all day but I must get some things done.  

You bring so much joy and love into our lives daily!  We love you so much and cannot imagine life without you!  You are a blessing and such a joy!
