Dylan’s 2nd birthday had much less fanfare than his 1st with a newborn in the house. He didn’t seem to mind. Sally and John were here from Texas to help us celebrate. Sally was also here for Vivian’s birth and and godsend in helping me around the house.
I had planned on sewing Dylan a custom tepee but Vivian got in the way of that. Instead I sewed him a custom floor cushion that glows in the dark for his space tent. He was actually more into his balloons than the tent. He loves the tent now and it’s his personal club house. Daddy is VIP there - mommy and sissy are invite only.
Dylan in the past week or so has finally had the language explosion we knew he would! He can easily repeat words we say to him and his vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds. He has also entered the terrible twos which I am sure is worse because of little sister’s arrival. His favorite word currently is NO!
All in all he really is a good kid (I can’t say baby anymore). He’s super sweet and affectionate. Really wants to please and doesn’t want to get in trouble. Josh is awesome with disciplining him and giving him love equally. He definitely doesn’t mess with Daddy. Mommy on the other hand is a work in progress and a bit of a push over.
He continues to love the outdoors, animals, and most of all books (he does love Peppa Pig and Curious George cartoons too). He had such a blast with his grandparents visiting and became John’s shadow after one day! He may throw a tantrum here and there but is quick to literally kiss and make up.
He continues to be in the 98% for height and weight. He was 36.5” and 33 lbs. at his 2 year appointment.
