My Baby is 2!

It's crazy to think that my baby boy is 2 years old!!

Zeke Russell you are most definitely the baby of the family. You know what you want and you want it right now. We are working on patience and using your words instead of stomping your feet and screaming. :) 

You are in LOVE with Lightning McQueen and everything Cars. You love to watch the movie and play with all your Cars toys. There is a particular Cars toy at Ga-Ga & Pa's that you will let everyone know is yours and only yours! 

You want to be a big boy, but at the same time you don't like to do things big kids do. You really dislike climbing up or down the'd rather be carried and you want to ride on a tricycle or a bicycle, but then you start crying when we put you on.

You are by far the pickiest eater of all! You will eat...toast, oatmeal, peanut butter and nutella sandwich, anything covered in syrup, sausage, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, meatballs, applesauce, yogurt, any sort of cracker or sweet. That's about it! You refuse to try new foods. 

You love to be pushed in your bucket swing! 

Your favorite person besides Mama is Pa! 

You are a really good talker! You will repeat almost everything we say and you are starting to say two words together like "Up peas!" Your favorite word is Mama and you say it about 500 times a day...not kidding! 

You are taking one nap a day from 1pm - 4pm...sometimes 5pm. 

You sleep in the big bedroom with Owen and Jack in your firetruck bed. Sometimes at night after we put you to bed you and Owen have what Owen calls "slapping fights". It's so weird, but Owen is gentle when he smacks you, but you are quite rough!

Right now you're going through a bit of a whining phase and we are going to be happy when that's over with! 

Zeke are my precious boy. I love hearing you say "love you" and then give me kisses. You love to snuggle and be rocked like a baby while I sing to you. You are such a blessing from the Lord! Such a wonderful way to complete our family! 

Happy 2nd Birthday Zeke Man!
