We have a TWO year old!! Happy birthday, Beckett!

Beckster Bean,  
Happy 2nd birthday baby!!  This year seemed to fly by, yet as I look back I can't help but notice how much you've grown!  You've become an independent little man and your curiosity extends infinitely!  You are truly the most kindhearted and gentle little boy I've had the pleasure of coming across and words cannot describe how proud I am that you are my son.  We are so blessed to call you ours!

Age: 2 years! 

Stats: 24 lbs, 34"

Clothes: 18-24 months.  You're favorite things to wear are car pajamas, t shirts with cars on them, your fedora and your rain boots!  You're also a huge fan of your disney character socks!  I've never seen anyone get as excited about socks, you're just too cute!

Favorite Foods: You have gone from the best eater ever to Mr. Picky!  You still love all fruit, some veggies (like green beans), but your all time favorite food has to be spaghetti and sauce!  You never turn it down :)  You're also really into turkey, mayo and cheese sandwiches, too. 

Favorite Words: You do not have a favorite word... You say yes & no and make a statement on extremely rare occasions!  For now you're a man of few words, but I have a feeling that when you decide to start talking, you'll be talking in complete sentences! 

Favorite Activities: 
-Going for rides in your wagon
-Playing Hide and Seek... which I don't like.  You decide to play at the most random times and then I freak out when I can't find 
-It's completely inappropriate for me to post this as one of your favorite things... But, you love helping pick up dog poop haha not actually picking it up, but pointing out where it is and you make sure we don't forget any!  
-You are all about your new sandbox... If you're playing in the sandbox, you're one happy guy :)
-Basically, if you're outside, you're as happy as can be!

Least Favorite Activities: You don't like having your diaper changed!  
"Beckett, do you have a poopy?"
"Nooooo...." (as he backs up slowly and then turns to run for his life ;))

Favorite Things: You love bubbles, in fact, you just figured out how to blow them yourself!  
You also love your car, train, plane and dinosaur toys; you play with them all daily!  
Coloring has certainly become a favorite past time and this past month is the first time you've decided to take your art to the wall.  
You love to read, we read every night and often during the day as well!  Your favorite books are Goodnight Goon, Five Little Pumpkins, Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site, Pat The Bunny (your favorite part is making sniffing noises to smell the flowers), Love Is You And Me, Little Blue Truck, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and I'm sure I'm leaving some out... 

Signature Moves: 
-The "I don't know how that happened..." shrug lol! 
-You are so expressive with your hands! Whenever you're explaining something to us in baby gibberish you use your hands to enunciate so we know just how important your statement is, it's so cute!
- We might just start calling you Mr. Clean instead of Mr. B, you're such an amazing little helper!  You like to wipe down your tray after meals, put trash in the trash can always help by picking up your toys :) 

Mom and Dad's 'Proudest' Moment:  Since we've had your sandbox from grammy and grandpa set up, you've eaten your fair share of sand!  Oh, and your super awesome mama elbowed you in the face on accident!  & somehow I was the only one that ended up in tears over the whole ordeal.

Other Milestones: You love your puzzles and do an amazing job at piecing your alphabet ones together.  I still have to help with rotating and turning over pieces, but you're definitely getting the hang of it! 
You can 100% navigate through our phones  and the iPad... Not so sure that can be classified as a milestone haha
And last but certainly not least, you're in your big boy bed!  The first night was a disaster, the second night you did a little better, but not great, and by the 3rd night you had it down! You didn't cry when I left your room AND you stayed in your bed all night long!  We're so proud of you honey!

Since you've been in your big boy bed, you've been letting yourself out of bed in the morning.  So far I haven't had to worry because you come straight to our room, and snuggle into bed with Daddy, Ellia and I.  Words cannot describe how much I love these morning snuggles!  It's just you and I awake and we sit and giggle about silly things like you making tiger give me kisses for 30 minutes until Daddy and E wake up :)  It's one of the best parts of my day.  I love you Beckett bean!  May this upcoming year be as amazing as the last!
