Micah, you just turned 2 a few weeks ago!!
The morning of your birthday-I let you choose what you wanted for breakfast. You chose a chocolate pop tart and coke. (Don't judge me, parents. Once a year)
I cannot believe it. My littlest baby boy is now a 2 year old...yikes! I think you have officially become a "2 year old" as well! You are such a big boy and are still so sweet and cuddly. You love to give "tisses" and just love on people. You love to mess with your older siblings too, often tackling them. You are so sweet and gentle to Natalie, though. You are a great big brother.
For old times' sake. I love it.
You're obedient for the most part, but sometimes you just get going doing something and ignore us when we tell you to stop. You are learning and we are now having to start getting onto you. You say yes or no very bluntly when we ask you something. For example, "Micah, can you give hugs?" You: "No." (walks away). You've pitched a few fits that involve throwing yourself on the floor and crying when you don't get your way or we "ruin" something for you (putting icing on a cookie you wanted to eat plain).
You are also hilarious. You're a little clown like your brother and you know it. You like your audience and you have the most contagious smile. You can tell by looking at you that you're a little stinker. You are starting to form sentences and the way you talk is the cutest thing ever. You ask for help a lot but also tattletale on Landon a lot, saying he pushed you or hit you. You like to sing and you can count to 10 all by yourself with ease. Actually, you've counted to 11 before. You're a smart little thing.
You do great in preschool now, without crying anymore. You had a very rough start at the beginning of the year and would cry a lot, especially in the mornings. Now you walk in like a champ without turning back and tell me how you painted and played all day. I'm so proud of you.
First ever preschool picture. I die from the cuteness.
You are doing so great at pottying. You'd probably be potty trained by now if Mommy didn't get so lazy since having another baby. You go every time I put you on the potty (and poopoo sometimes.) You used to call it the "choochoo" because you had a Thomas potty seat but we decided to just teach you how to sit on the big potty like a big boy so you get used to it when we're out. You've done great and love to flush of course.
You still sleep in your crib since we're at Grandmommy and Lito's house, but you have climbed out many times, taken the doorknob safety cover off, thrown it, opened the door, walked downstairs, sat in a chair at the kitchen table, and demanded "panchakes" (with an adorable grin on your face of course). When you get your own room in a few weeks, you are going to start sleeping in the toddler bed and we are turning your doorknob inside out :) You still take a good nap every day around lunch time or a little after, usually 1-2 hours long. Mommy is very grateful for that :)
Your favorite things: playing iPad (you're amazing at games like Temple Run, Angry Birds, Subway Surf, etc), watching TV (The Croods, Mater's Tall Tales, Wild Kratts, Magic School Bus, Barbie--lol, and of course Thomas the Choochoo train), eating "panchakes" or candy or macaroni and cheese or "Cote" (coke) which is rare that you get, playing with toys, especially cars and trucks, running around outside in the dirt and rocks, or watching old classic Mickey cartoons on the couch on the iPad right before bed-and after your evening laps around the house of course. You run and run and run every night through the kitchen and living room. Crazy kid :)
Apparently watching an intense movie...
iPad time with big brother.
You wanted big sister to just push you around on her bike. Which she did. Because you're her baby. You love each other a lot.
Micah, you are so much fun to watch and be with, and it makes us so happy to see you so happy with every little thing. We love you so much and can't wait for all the birthdays to come! Happy 2nd birthday, Micahbear!
