Terrible Twos and Potty Training Adventures!

Dear Drew,
Wow! What can I say? You aren't even 2 years old yet, but the terrible two's have hit for sure!! From temper tantrums to unexplained outbursts, you are showing typical 2 year old's personality! I often say I can't wait for this time to be over, and as I sit and type this, you are pulling on my arm and crying "Mamamamamama" because your daddy and brothers are downstairs in the den and you want to go, but I have to remind myself to treasure this time because it will be gone all too fast. I have to remember that this is you testing your limits and trying to express yourself the best way you know how at this point....

That being said, you are saying so many words! It's so funny, because any time we ask you anything, the answer is almost always "NO" even if you mean "Yes!" I'm very proud of how smart you are! You have this shape-sorter ball and that is one of your very favorite things to do! You have your daddy or I let all the shapes out and you will sit there for hours spinning the ball looking for the right hole for each shape over and over again! You are VERY good at it too! It's really quite impressive!

You also love any kind of sport! Football, baseball, basketball...those are your favorites! And oh my! are you left-handed! You hold a bat and swing perfectly left-handed - just like your mama! You throw left-handed, shoot basketball left-handed and even suck your left thumb! Yep! Sorry to say, but you are STILL sucking that thumb! I know you're going to get me for allowing you to do that for so long later on, but everywhere I've read says it won't hurt you until your permanent teeth come in....believe me, I've researched it over and over again!

After the last couple of weeks of bathroom wars with you - long periods of time sitting (playing) on the toilet, you FINALLY peepee'd in the potty today! I was so excited! I hope that this is the start to you realizing what you're REALLY supposed to do when you're in there!!! You won't be 2 for another 3 months or so, so this is a fantastic head start. I'm very proud of you and all of your accomplishments in the short year and a half you have been part of my life! Your dad and I love you VERY much!!

Mommy <3
