2 1/2

Bryan turned 2 1/2 last week. I feel like we just celebrated his 2nd birthday yesterday. He is getting to be such a big boy.

Here are a few things about him:

*He knows about his pediatrician and calls him by name. If I tell him we're going to the doctor he says, "Dr. Whitaker, look at ears."

*If you ask him what he did today he can answer.

*I've recently started doing a bible study at church and he goes in the nursery like a pro now. NO tears for the past three weeks! Last week he literally ran to class. He got to the door and went straight to sit in the teachers lap. I was so proud. :)

*He's been coloring and making little cards in the nursery. Last week when I went to pick him up he said, "You did that?!?!" (That's what we say to him, so that's what he says.)

* I love when he says, "Did you heard that?" haha Instead of saying, "I'm hungry" he'll say, "Are you hungry?" But it's more like hOngry. :)

*He'll melt your heart by saying, "I love you, Mommy" or "I love you, Daddy."

*He has recently started adding "my" before mommy, daddy, granna, sug, papaw, and pops. "Where's my mommy?" So SWEET!

*He's outgrowing his 2T pants quickly.

*He's obsessed with the guitar.

*He's also obsessed with his new ball that he got for Valentines.

*He loves his sunglasses and wears them in the car all the time.

*He can be crying and you ask him if he wants to play ball (or anything else). He'll say, "Not yet, I'm crying!" The other day he was playing with his seat belt buckle in the car. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "I'm playing buckle."

*Speaking of, he got a new car seat. He was getting too big for the one we had. He loves to go, go car and sit in his new seat. :)

*Some of his favorite shows right now are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Imagination Movers, Wow Wow Wubbzy, and the Doodlebops.

*His favorite movies, that we watch over and over, are Lady and the Tramp, The Incredibles, all of the Praise Baby's we have, and Miss Patty Cake. Miss Patty Cake stays at Granna and Papaw's house. :)

*His favorite foods are pizza, spaghetti, chips & salsa, pb&j, and apples.

*We made a quick trip down to Phenix City last week. On Thursday we visited a place called Monkey Joe's. Bryan is very cautious so I wasn't sure how he would do on the jumpy things. It only took him a few minutes to warm up and he LOVED it! There was a 20 foot (at least) blow up slide that we went down together. He's not a fan of big slides or playgrounds for that matter. Not long after we went down, he wanted to climb the stairs by himself. He got brave all of a sudden and went down the slide by himself!! As he was getting off he said, "Oh wow!" He then went down 3 or 4 more times squeeling on the way down. So brave!!!

Please say a prayer for him today. He is sick...again! He woke up with a 102 fever after his nap yesterday. Now it's right around 100 with tylenol. We just got over the flu bug a couple weeks ago and aren't excited about something else.

Thanks for filling us in!! He is so smart- It absolutely melts my heart when he says "i love you lulu!!!" He looks like a little man in his sunglasses.

I hope he feels better soon- We are pros at this sickness thing now, so if you need something, call me!! :) Give B kisses from the Soles clan! :)
