Andrew is 2!

Andrew turned 2 on May 13, 2010. He had his check-up on the 14th. He weighs 34 lbs 2 oz and is in the 95%tile. Big boy! His vocabulary has really exploded in the past two months. He can now call all of his family members by name (Grammy, Grandmom, Aunt Becca, etc). He also knows the names of all his little friends--Ben, Ella, Becca, Ashley.

He is saying 2 and 3 word phrases like "thank you", "I love you" (I wuv oo), "Play bball outside", "read book please", and "Go Tech". He also loves music and sings a long with many songs. He still wants to climb in my lap and be read to.

He has discovered the Cars movie and wants to watch it all the time. He also loves playing with his little cars. He says "Cars race!". For his birthday he got a train table and lots of Thomas stuff. He has been enjoying playing "choo choos".

He still wants his way and will throw a tantrum when he doesn't get what he wants. But he is such a sweet boy and we love him so much!
