toddler update: my big boy & his junk

age: 2 1/2 years - really, i have a 2 1/2 year old. that's basically a teenager. really, how did my baby get so big? he's already losing his baby fat.

weight: 33lbs, my tank

what landon loves: his business. i know it's just a phase and i've tried teaching him about respectively our private parts but he is boy through and through. he also loves fruit snacks, apple juice, nuggets, and chippies [food wise]. he loves his superheroes, his tools, his legos & dress up clothes [toy wise]. above all, he loves friends. seriously, he is such a social little butterfly [wonder where he get's this awesome quality from?]. where ever we go, he's asking me 'mom, where's
my friends?' [he defines friends as any kid]. it makes me so happy that he is so friendly and able to make friends so easily. he also loves being outside- morning, noon and night. luckily we have an outside paradise- a water table, a sand box, grass, tons of outside toys, a scooter, a jeep, a kiddie pool- just to name a few. we spend a lot of time outside.

playing with neighbor kids
and having a blast
what landon hates: listening to his mother. my friend told me that her pediatrician said toddlers act up by refusing to eat or potty train because it's one of the few things they can exert control over. makes sense. you can see him debating on whether or not he will listen and obey me, depending on if i possess the ability to punish him for not listening. really- what a turd. he vehemently HATES the
booger sucker. like screams about it and has told me several times he's telling on me to his friends for stealing his boogers [yet he always wants to look at them after i've fought him to get them out]. he does not like his foot medicine either [he has inherited his father's nasty caveman feet]. he also does not like eating meals- he's a snacker. breakfast usually comes at 10am, lunch i bribe him to eat by letting him watch a show [so i can watch a show] and dinner we have to bribe him with desserts.

i just love this pic - it shows him in his
undies and his chaos we call 'play'
what we're working on: potty training of course. not being too violent or aggressive [someone got in trouble in nursery for choking- CHOKING. i have no idea where he learned that. i was so embarrassed and appalled]. sleeping through the night [he has gotten into the habit of waking up and wanting to come into our bed] and going down to bed at night without taking an hour and a half.

landon's favorite things: playing outside, playing with friends, superheroes, dressing up in costumes, pretending to be a fireman, puzzles, army men [he doesn't actually have any- our neighbor kid does and he's played with them twice so he just calls random boxes or things army men], and using his imagination. seriously i just love it! he plays so well now by himself and will just make up the cutest and most random things. for example, he kept telling me for DAYS he was making a tuna sandwich, to which he's never even eaten and neither have i [that i can remember] in front of him. so how he knew about tuna sandwiches i have no idea. i just love this dude.

Pin It!

Its so nice to know I am not alone in this toddlerhood. Abby is a turd too. Its a good thing toddlers are also cute because seriously, sometimes I just want to leave. Haha. We'll make it right??

Despite his acting up, Landon is so cute. Its hilarious that he gets mad at you for stealing his boogers and that he wants to tattle on you.

Hahaha, in trouble for choking. That's hilarious. And the tuna sandwich is great too. The things little boys do :)
