Per usual, this newsletter is late... but I actually have a good excuse this time. We've been busy -we moved, had visitors, celebrated Christmas and had more visitors! It has been a busy and fun time with you. Even though I've gotten a monthly newsletter out later than this (we're only 9 days late right now), I couldn't let 2012 end without writing.
You are 20 months old... that's awfully close to being 2. How the heck did that happen? You are this silly, fun toddler with so much personality. You are a complete ham and are so entertaining.
Hamming it up in front of the Christmas tree.
Having fun with Adelia.
Cutting your nails.
Trying on Mr. Potato Head's glasses and hat.
But being this close to 2, you may have started your "terrible 2s" early and you're not always so fun... You have a stubborn/independent streak and haven't quite figure out how to express it (other than by having a meltdown)
Having a tantrum about something -being inside, taking off your shoes, who knows.
And another... didn't like what was offered for dinner? Someone looked at you funny? Who knows -crazy toddlers!
But, usually you're pretty amazing and thankfully your meltdowns are pretty short and few. Your dada and I are so lucky to have you and we are having so much fun watching you grow up. I know the next few months are going to fly by and then you'll be a big brother, but I'm going to cherish these last few months of having you all to myself. I'm so excited to add to our family, but also sad since our dynamic is going to change so much. I know you're going to be an amazing brother. You're such a caring, affectionate and compassionate little boy who is so great with other kids and babies. I can't wait to see you interact with your new baby sister and teach her all sorts of great things.
I love you munchkin. Happy 20 months.
