Beckett at 21 Months

Sunday, August 16, 2015

In a few short days (hopefully), Beckett will be a BIG BROTHER! We are so excited for him. It's such a big deal!! But you know what is ALSO a big deal? TODAY, this kiddo is 21 months old. He's also the most AWESOME kid I know. 

So today, I wanted to give the world a quick update on Beckett.

Rockin a bow tie at our BaByQue for Charlie Grace
The most important thing to note here is that he is LITERALLY the COOLEST KID EVER. I know moms tend to think that about their kid, but I'm pretty sure I am being objective here. ;)

Breakfast Date!
He is definitely starting to have his toddler moments. His favorite places to have tantrums are 1) at the refrigerator/pantry (because he wants to hold them open and make you guess what he wants) and 2) in the store (because he doesn't want to be in the cart).

Chowing on some red pepper.

He's also starting to develop a super silly personality. I love his goofy side! He's totally moving into that "let me do something to make you laugh" stage of toddlerhood.

He LOVE playing with blocks, cars, & balls. He is a water baby, for sure, and he LOVES his cousins! 

He likes to be outside with daddy. And he's a BIG helper. He throws things away, takes out the trash, loads and unloads the dishwasher & laundry, picks up his toys, prepares meals, and more! Of course, in true toddler fashion, it's on his own terms and often more work than it is help, but I appreciate his sweetness. 

He loves food SO. MUCH. His favorite foods are fruits, but he'll eat almost anything you put in front of him. His new thing is he NEEDS to be in a big boy chair instead of that ole baby seat we used to make him sit in. He's mostly rockin it. I love that he loves food so much because I can bribe him with his next meal. "If you want to go have lunch, we have to finish cleaning up the playroom." I'm not above it. ;)

He's FINALLY starting to sleep well. WOOHOO! He took a bottle much longer than he should have because the sleep situation in our house was a NIGHTMARE. But Jesus loves me and the sleep situation in the house is improving. He's still picky about his routine. Last night he chose SEVEN books, TWO sippy cups (one with milk and one with water, of course), and his quilt from Great Grandma Satchell to be in the bed with him as he fell asleep. He likes to sit up and read before he falls asleep. I LOVE IT.

He also doesn't like to wear pants. You'll notice MOST pictures of him are just in his fluffs (cloth diapers). I'm ok with that. They're cute and it means less laundry for me.

He also LOVES to learn. He can identify over half of his letters consistently, and three colors (with less consistency). He's also starting to work on numbers, animals, and animal sounds. However, outside of these things and some random words, he still doesn't talk much. 

He's got lots of big changes coming up! In a couple of weeks, he starts back to "school" (Parents Day Out at a local church/preschool). He'll attend two mornings a week this year, and will get to move up to the two year old room! I LOVE his school, and so does he. It's only a couple of hours per morning but it's a great opportunity for him to get out and socialize & they are intentional about learning activities, fine motor skills, etc. 

He's also got potty training on the horizon! YIKES!! We're almost two so it's time to start thinking about it! Pray for me, ya'll.

That time he took off his diaper and tried to put it back on...
And the biggest change is CHARLIE GRACE! Little man doesn't seem to have a concept of the child that's about to come in and turn our worlds upside down, but I think he'll do fabulously. 

And that's Beckett @ 21 months! :)
