Let’s double it up today… not only is it Friday and time for High Five for Friday Edition, but this week, Avery turned 20 months! His personality is really coming out. He’s determined, stubborn, and has quite the temper. I swear, ‘they’ lied. The terrible twos start at 1 1/2, not 2. But he’s also a sweetie… loves giving hugs and kisses. He loves playing outside in the dirt, at the park, and loves to color…whether it’s in the bathtub or on the walkway. And this past week he’s been eating like a champ… so maybe we’re looking at a summer growth spurt?!
So let’s join the link up party with Lauren, by sharing what Avery’s been up to this week…
Mr. World Traveler
For the long weekend, we visited our friends in Baltimore. It was our first time taking Avery on a plane as a toddler. Man, is it a different adventure than with a baby. First of all, babies sleep on planes – Toddlers play on planes. This kid decided to sleep on the ride to the airport and wake up as we walked thru security. So, he was VERY awake for the flight. He wanted to run around and wave to everyone – so when we had to be seated for take off, Avery flipped out! He does not like to sit still. But once we were in the air, he was thrilled to color and play peek a boo with the couple behind us.
As we’ve shared.. we’ve been busy in the yard these past couple weeks. So, we have a few extra tools laying around.. and that makes them fair game for Avery! He also digs shovels and rakes. He has his own wheel barrow too… but obviously prefers the real one. And as if playing in his sand box, coloring with chalk, or playing with yard tools isn’t enough, he can always water the yard…which he learned how to do yesterday.
Mr. Hott Stuff
After the rainy start to the week, you wouldn’t think we’d have 90 degree weather – think again! 93+ yesterday. So clothing was VERY optional this week. Oh and yes, Avery poured out his Cheerios onto the couch… slick move kiddo. He did eat them all though… so you can’t really blame him, right?
Mr. Hott Rod
Avery loves cars. Matchbox cars in the sand box. Loud cars that pass the house. And he LOVES to drive. When we get to daycare in the morning – always a wee bit early, somebody hops in the drivers seat and takes a spin.
4 months to go before the big “2″… and yes, his birthday party is already in the works….
How far ahead do you start planning birthday parties?
