#biggywigs | 2 Years

#biggywigs | 2 Years



You turned 2 on Friday and had your 2 year check up today.  It was a wonderful weekend celebrating you!!  Big Brother told you Happy Birthday every morning and gave you extra hugs. <3 p="">

nicknames | Monkey, a rhyme of your name, Baby

weight | 36.6 ' tall and 32 pounds!  97% and 89% respectfully.  Finally the percentages have swapped and you're taller than round.

size | 3T clothes, size 6 diapers and size 7 shoes

sleep | Bedtime is 730.  You're currently waking around 6AM, and napping right after lunch for about 2 hours.

eats |  Being home has not helped your picky food problems.  You get lots of veggie pouches, applesauce, yogurt, crackers and fruit to snack on.  You love chicken, beef, and (of course) carbs.  Our meals are on a pretty constant rotation so you aren't being exposed to as much as if you were at school.  Oh well, you are still growing!

loves | Being outside, chasing brother, and dancing.

dislikes | Getting your diaper changed (most of the time), not getting the toy brother is playing with, being in the car too long.



firsts | You left the house for the first time today since March 16th; other than a car ride that is.  You were so excited to see your Dr and all of the nurses that you had to tell EVERYONE hello and goodbye.  It was a mini parade on your way out of the office!  So stinking cute.

You sleep in your bed for nap no problem.  Every night you end up waking up and walking across the hall and into our bed.  I'm hoping that we can get you to stay in your bed all night here very soon.

Five on Friday

Each week is better than before.
I've dealt with the petty anger from a few week ago and I've really leaned into the new normal.

Justin and I've also taken the opportunity to get a few projects done.

1.
New Nook Light
We still have to paint the ceiling and I am looking for artwork for the side wall.  I love how it brightened up the space!  Now I need to find a new chandelier for our dining room......

(Our old light)

2.
New Fence

This project is going to be finished by professionals, but we started tearing down the rotted fence!
We will have white vinyl  privacy fencing put up around the house.  I am so excited to see the finished product!

We also took the opportunity to trim and cut back the lilac bushes.

3.
New Play set

Technically this is #biggywigs 2 year birthday present, but we purchased it early due to Covid and Stay at Home orders.

100% WORTH IT.



I did quite a bit a research to find a play set that had a smaller footprint.  Our side yard is rectangle shaped and our backyard is really just a super long and very skinny.  The only place a play set would fit would be our side yard.  I wanted a minimum of two swings, a slide and a "double" fort.  (quite a few smaller footprint forts were only wide enough for one child at a time.)

I found the KidKraft Windale and it's been a winner!!

4.
Pelaton App

Free 90 day subscription!  I love that workouts are anywhere from 10 min to an hour and they aren't just for a bike.  Yoga, Stretching, Strength, and Cardio are my favorites.

I can bust out a few during the day with minimal interruption from my munchkins!

5.
Shed Cleanout

No photos of this - but we purged our shed!  We deep cleaned, sold off as much as we could, and reorganized.  We have over 2/3 of the shed usable to us now!  Justin is researching a new door so I'm hopeful that we can really cut down on the bugs in there.  #gross

#biggywigs - 22 Months

#biggywigs | 22 Months

This is being posted a month late.  I'm sorry baby.  I kept forgetting to pull some photos for the post.  Whoops.

nicknames | monkey, a rhyme of your name, Baby

weight | over 30 pounds and 33 inches :)  I'll have official measurements at your 2 year well check


size | 2 T clothes, size 6 diapers and size 6 shoes (though at 23 months you moved up to 3T clothes and size 7 shoes)

sleep | Bedtime is 7-730.  You're currently waking around 6AM, and napping right after lunch for about 1.5 to 2 hours.

eats |  You are defiantly more picky than your brother was at this age #secondkidprobs  You love applesauce, veggie pouches, and yogurt.  You eat well if you're distracted at meal time though.  You also don't like to drink milk, but you have plenty of dairy :)


loves | Being outside, chasing brother, and dancing.

dislikes | Getting your diaper changed (most of the time), not getting the toy brother is playing with, being in the car too long.



firsts | Being home for the past 2 weeks.  Your entire routine turned upside down and you handled it like a champ.  You've gotten a lot more TV than I'd like, but it's still only a limited number of shows.  You love getting out on a walk in the afternoon and your vocab has BOOMED since we've been home.
We also converted your crib to a toddler bed.  SOB.  However you HATED your crib and you love napping in your toddler bed now.  As much as I wanted you to be in a crib until 3 1/2 (like big brother, who LOVED his crib) I'm so happy you're sleeping better :)
