One Month Until 3

Nathanael’s development never ceases to amaze me.  He’s one energetic kid right now and he gets a big 2nd burst about 9pm.  This means running around the house screaming “catch me! catch me!” and generally squeaking very loudly.  It’s cute but after a while it gets tiresome.

Today Nathanael learned a new phrase “speak up!”  So all evening he told me to “speak up, speeeaak upp, sppeeakkk UPPPPP!”  Followed by a big laugh.  Sometimes at night, he lays in bed and just laughs.  I’m not sure what’s going through this brain but he’s clearly replaying something.

We’re back onto a big hockey phase.  It’s all hockey, all the time. 

Who knew that a 3 year old boy would be so particular about clothes?  He has very specific likes and dislikes.  And he likes what an almost 3 year old likes:  t-shirts with fun graphics, comfy shorts that are light blue (not dark blue) and Elmo shoes (no sandles).  I finally bought a few pair of shorts he already has.  By Thursday, we are out of his favorites and well, it’s just hard.

I’m going to try and enjoy the last month of 2.  2 has been such an amazing year – so much development, so much personality, so much chatting!  I look forward to 3 but it brings a tear to my eye to think that we’ll be done with 2.
