These are a few pics from our snow days a few weeks ago.
He still loves playing with the neighborhood kids any chance he gets (and of course daddy).
He finally is starting to like his preschool. Yesterday he started singing ring around the rosie. We have sang that to him maybe once or twice and he started dancing and does all fall down! I asked him if he learned that at school and he shouts YESS! He also started doing his fingers for itsy bitsy spider. He paints and plays with the other kids. Next year he will be doing the 3 day a week class from 9:30-1:30 at the same church/school.
Food- He is definitely a more picky eater than he was at 1 year and even 18 months. He will eat almost any kind of fruit all day if you let him. He loves his waffles in the morning (I started that because I have to eat as soon as I get up because baby girl is starving in there I guess). He'll then eat cereal and fruit in the mornings. For lunch we usually do a sandwich, with cheese stick and grapes. It's hard finding vegetables that he likes. He will not even touch frozen microwaveable vegetables (unless they are peas). We found out that fresh green beans cooked are on the go list and also softened cooked carrots. He doesn't like zucchini or potatoes. He says either Me no like or like it, NO. Dinner we really just serve what we are having, but I make sure at least one part of the meal either it be the meat, noodles or peas/beans that he likes is a part of it. I am not one to make a whole separate meal to cater. I have also started our smoothies back at night (just too rushed in the mornings now). We sometimes do get in the bad habit of letting him watch a show while eating because it distracts him and he just eats or we can shovel it in. I wouldn't be as concerned if he didn't have a hard time gaining weight.
Upcoming goals before baby is here in 4 months: Move Max into a big boy bed (little sissy is taking over the white crib/furniture/glider), take away the pluggy (pacci), and potty train little mister. He is definitely about ready for the potty training, but due to his school I don't want them to have to deal with accidents or keeping up with that so we are probably waiting till beg. of May to start that. I am so nervous about the pacci. He just loves going in his crib because of it and it occupies him to just lay there or I think he would just scream or try to get out. I told him that the little babies need to have it and he needs to pass it on and he just shouts NO, mine!
Flash back picture to when he was a year! Still just as cute.
