Grayson Two Years

Age: 2 years
Stats: 27lbs (45%) & 35 inches (75%)
Little man is wearing 2T and is a 6.5 in shoes. Ryan and him can basically wear the same clothes - they are a little big on Grayson and a tad small on Ryan...but get the job done in a pinch. Grayson's upper body is probably the same size as Ryan's but his legs are not quite as long. If they are both sitting in the stroller a lot of people ask if they are twins?!? really? They look nothing alike...
Favorite Foods:
I would say typical toddler foods including hot dogs, chicken nuggets, and mac n' cheese. He however is not a huge fan of PB&J - sometimes he will ask for it (because that's what Ryan wants) but he won't eat much of it. In general Grayson is my big eater. He really will typically try anything and when he is hungry he will gobble it all up. For breakfast he loves sausage and yogurt with granola. And when it is meal time this guy is serious. He has figured out how to climb into his highchair himself and will not let you help. 
Another great sleeper - yay! This little guy wakes up around 7:30am, takes a nap from 1pm - 4pm and then goes to bed at 8pm. I guess this makes up for his first six months of not sleeping :)
His vocabulary is crazy! 
Yesterday Kevin asked him what he did at school and he ACTUALLY answered! (This is surprising because when we ask Ryan he typically says "I dunno, what did I do?" or nothing...which is a typical boy answer.) It was so cute! He said that he "Played, Picked up toys, Ate Food, took a nite nite and played outside." It was adorable! He is a little parrot as well. Doesn't matter what you say he will repeat it all. And he will communicate using full sentences. He talks so much more than Ryan did at this age...and maybe even more than Ryan currently does! lol!
This little man loves Little Gym and music class.  At little gym he is a huge fan of the bars and balance beam and he has almost mastered doing a forward roll by himself.  
Favorite things:
He loves legos, balls, play-doh, and art! Grayson loves to color and paint...and has been known to get loose with a crayon or two. Oops. He loves to play outside at the park, in the backyard and especially in water. He loves to help out in the kitchen and will drag his chair over to help reach the counter.
Sibling Love
Grayson LOVES his big brother Ryan. I love it when he and Ryan play so sweetly together...which is happening more and more. Grayson also knows how to push Ryan's buttons. And he also loves his baby sister. He brings her toys and is constantly worried about her pacifier. He will bring it to her and try and shove it in her mouth. If she doesn't take it he gets so worried...and then he just sticks it in his mouth. 
Signature Moves:
Happy feet dance. This little man has some quick feet! He loves to dance and it's pretty darn adorable.
Fake laugh. I don't recall exactly how this started but Kevin and I were laughing at something and we noticed that all of the sudden Grayson started laughing although he had no idea why. He just wanted to be included. So now we purposely will randomly laugh just to see how he's quite funny. He looks around to try and figure out why we are laughing then will just laugh. Once he realizes that we are now laughing at him he gobbles it up. He loves attnetion. lol
He is going to school on Mondays, Wednesdays and half-days on Friday. He has really transitioned well and loves his teachers. They call him "party boy" because he is always so happy. Morning drop off has been great as he walks right into the room (like he owns it) and gets right down to business...finding a toy to play with. There is no crying which I am loving!

This little man is such a blessing and we have loved watching his personality unfold over the past two years. Love my little boy!
