Taylor turns two

"I do it!" That's Taylor's favorite phrase these days. He still wants to do everything Chase is doing, but he doesn't want my help doing it! Such an independent kid, he not only has to pick out his own clothes and dress himself, but I'm not even allowed to open his dresser drawers for him. If I do, he closes them so he can reopen them himself! He is quite the little daredevil and pretty acrobatic with his stunts. He is talking a lot now, using tons of phrases and short sentences, especially since he parrots everything anyone else says. He is very happy and sweet, always up for a snuggle or a laugh. He sleeps great at night, usually going to bed at 6:45 and waking up around 7:15. He is always hungry and has jumped up to the 10th percentile in weight (7% increase from his last checkup!) and the 25th in height. He loves to color, and the other day I heard him singing along with Taylor Swift in the car. He likes Mickey, Elmo, and Bubble Guppies. He prefers to wear button up shirts and khakis...no joke. He loves to put on Chase's underwear and sit on the potty but that's as far as it goes and I'm in no rush. He insists on reading his own books at bedtime, declaring "mine!" and pushing me aside if I try to read along with him or look at his books. Instead, he gives me my own book to read and we do it simultaneously. He says goodbye to everyone and everything by name, from his friends at daycare to the apples sitting in the garage. He loves to talk on the phone to his grandparents too. He had a fun birthday party and got a new kitchen set to make us pizza and cookies. He wasn't happy that he couldn't touch the cake while we sang to him, but after the singing was done he was super happy. We sure love this little guy and all the joy he brings into our home everyday!
