Entering the Terrible Two's

Since the blog is our baby book/family history, I thought I should post some pictures of MB entering the "Terrible Two" stage.

He puts his matchbox cars in his onsies and pajamas. When I change his clothes I find hidden treasures. Maybe he's tired of being a light weight and is trying to put on some extra pounds.

He'll try least once.

MB likes to talk to his Grandma GG (a.k.a. Grandma Reta) on the phone. Well he likes to listen and make grandma do all the talking. When I attempt to take the phone away, he runs to a different part of the house. I have to hand it to GG- she can carry on a one sided conversation for a very long time.

He also likes her in person.

Mr. Boy LOVES water. When I cook, I let him play in the sink with the tap barely turned on. He can't get enough of it and it keeps him occupied while I cook or clean. MB turned ZoZo's Dr. Brown's bottle parts into a drinking fountain. Pretty ingenious.

He is not afraid of heights. We haven't decided if this is a good or a bad thing.

If Mr. Boy does not like what he is wearing, he takes it off.

Every time we're at GG and Pops' house, he insists that they set up this little table and all four chairs just for him (the other two chairs are on their way).

This photo is misleading. He HATES getting his hair cut. I usually end up sitting in the chair, holding him on my lap & holding him as still as possible while he screams, kicks, and twists. If his hair looked good long, I would let it grow but unfortunately it doesn't so instead we have to subject innocent hair stylist to this torture.

He is stubborn, determined, a pain in the behind, funny, and lovable all at the same time. I really hope I can enjoy this stage instead of wishing away the Terrible Twos. I better get myself to bed so I can laugh instead of cry when he does what he does.

What a little cutie! I have a feeling he keeps you all on your toes.

OH...he is so cute! Bring him back to NYC so I can babysit him again. I am sure we could get into all kinds of trouble like last time (getting off the subway at a stop with no elavator and having an NYPD officer carry him and his stroller up the stairs for me...oh and casually running onto David Blaine hanging upside down in Central Park in front of millions of people). Maybe this time we could make the news!

I love it, this will be a fun post for you two to look back at some day.

I bet he does keep you hopping. I thought I would never survive all the flour, sugar, salt on the floor, water spilled everywhere, movies strewn everywhere, naked little children running around, but as I look back on it, I sure loved it. The problems are so innocent. I wish I had had a better attitude about it, and seen it for what it really was. Perspective really does make a difference. Hope you enjoy it!!
