Barrett - 2.5

April 28, 2022

 Dusting off the cobwebs on this blogspot for the sake of documenting the baby of the family turning two and a half. He's all baby y'all. Partially because of his personality to do what ever the heck he wants and not caring but also partially because he's our last baby and we're hold on for dear life to every shred of baby-ness he has left. We just adore every little bit of him.

Two months ago was the last I weighed and measured him. So, back in February he was 38 pounds (99%) and 37.25 in (93%). He's a big BIG boy. He has a big head, big hands, thick legs, chubby ankles, and we are here for ALL OF IT! His eyes are still basically black and his hair is a dirty blond with just a hint of red sprinkled in there. (These pictures are the worst because they were taken on a bright green swing as the sun was reflecting off of it so any chance of accurate color is long gone)

You probably talk the least of your siblings and I'll have your speech evaluation done in September maybe. I'm interested to see what they have to say. You have way more words and talk way more than what the "milestone" says you should so I'm not worried about you at just drop off the first syllable of words so we've got to get that takes care of.

You are so funny and head strong. You have zero interest in potty training even though you can hold it for hours. We're working on counting, your favorite color is red and you don't really care about the other colors, you're learning your shapes. Your favorite is an octagon. You know some of your letters and know that a "B" is your letter. 

You love being outside. You ride a two wheel bike (with pedals and no training wheels) really well. You love to play with Nerf Guns, dirt, dump trucks, and race cars. You love anything that goes! You also adore animals. Especially dogs. I've really never seen anything like it. You are obsessed with our dog Penny but in public we are always running behind you say, "Sorry, can he pet your dog" because any dog you see you just have to go to it. 

Barrett, we love you so much and I could never have enough space or enough words to describe how special you are to us. You are just the little amount of spice we needed in our lives and I'm so glad God gave you to us. We're so lucky to get to watch you grow up.
