Trevor Update

My little monkey spent a special day downtown with Mama and Daddy on Friday. We took the train down, rode the water taxi to Michigan Ave, walked to Navy Pier, played at the Childrens museum, walked back to the water taxi, and took the train back. It was a long but fun day!

I cant believe he will be 22 months soon. So close to 2..He continues to surprise me every day with his understanding and amazing personality.

He picks up the lyrics to songs in an instant and sings along. We have the Carole Peterson and Laurie Berkner CDs in the car and he requests his favorite songs.

He is talking in 5-6 word sentences now. He usually adds the name of who he is talking to, in there. Like, "I hungry, Mama." The funniest thing is when he gives Tom his report of the day when he sees him. He just talks and talks and I have to interpret for Tom.

Poor guy got his first bee sting yesterday. :( I have never been stung, yet my 1 year old has! He was a trooper! He just whimpered and grabbed the back of his arm. Sure enough, there was a red dot, a white circle around it and it was very irritated. I watched him closely and am thankful he did not have an allergic reaction.

Trevor is still napping 2-3 hours in the afternoon. Hes pretty flexible about when he goes down. Unless he is tired and we are in the car, then he passes out. That can be tricky because he is not good at being transferred to his crib and staying asleep. We try to avoid that!

He is my fruit loving boy! He will eat almost any fruit and some favorites are blueberries, bananas, pears, peaches, grapes, etc. He will barely touch a vegetable. He ate corn recently and I was so happy!

We have been to parks often lately and he has mastered climbing ladders. He is scared of the swings. You can push him slow but if you go fast, he tenses up and makes this funny face.

He is always willing to give hugs and kisses..even licks. Haha When you ask for a hug, he comes close and turns around for you to wrap your arms around him.

He is obsessed with monsters right now! He has a few books that are his first pick at bedtime. He will pretend he is scared and its so funny.

He adores baby Rylan and all babies in general. He is super sweet and wants to kiss her and hold her. I hope that love of babies continues into the winter..

Trevor has always loved bath time and now will submerge his face for 5+ seconds. I will jokingly yell to Tom that Trevor is "trying to drown himself again."

He will tell you that he needs his nah-nee(pacifier) if he is upset or tired. I only give it to him at bedtime or if he is miserable. Im not sure when we will take it away. Im thinking around 2.

He is a tall and skinny boy. He swims in most 2T shirts and wears 18 month shorts/pants. His feet are huge-he is in size 8!

He does these hilarious "side-eyes", that we call them, and below is the perfect shot of it!

Tom and I talk about how lucky he is to be our first child. He is always in the spotlight loves it. I know it will take some adjusting when the new baby comes, but I think he will like having a playmate for life. :)

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that people who are allergic to bees (wasps, yellowjackets, etc.) don't generally have a reaction until their second sting/bite. It's the body's reaction to the first sting that causes an allergic reaction to the second sting. I'm sure he's not allergic, but just wanted you to be aware.

I didn't think it was possible, but Trevor keeps getting cuter and cuter the older he gets!
