brooks hayden || two and a half

brooks hayden at 2.5 years old:

weight: 35 pounds (91%)
height: 38.5 inches (94%)

brooks is at such a fun age.  he is hilarious and has really become my best little buddy.  last time i did an update post, brooks wasn't really talking very much.  he has come a LONG way and now is talking up a storm.  it kills me the things he says sometimes.

at this age, brooks loves:

-watching "shows" (kids youtube & netlix)
-paw patrol, daniel tiger, caillou, mickey mouse clubhouse
-reading books
-playing pretend
-target & costco
-playing with cousins and friends
-pink cookies from swig
-waffles, cottage cheese, samachis (sandwich)
-playing in the snow
-jumping off of stuff

he is not so fond of

-when i wear my hair up  seriously, he cries or whines and tells me to put it down anytime it's up.
-the idea of church  haha every morning he says "i don't want to go to church" which is funny because he actually likes nursery now.
-going to the doctor
-when he doesn't get to watch a show
-most vegetables

things i want to remember:

-the way he asks, "can i watch a show on your phooooone?"
-when he grabs my face and says, "you my best fwiend in da whole wold"
-when he can hear in our voices that we are annoyed, frustrated, sad, etc.  he will ask us, "mommy/daddy you happy?"  
-how he still loves for us to hold his hand in the car or when we lay with him in bed and when he says, "can i cuddow" (cuddle)
-how he always calls remi "wem wems" and asks a million times a day if he can hold her (which she hates by the way).
-how he blesses everyone he can think of in his prayers, including paw patrol characters
-he always wants to know everyone's names.  if we are reading a book, he will point to every single person or animal and ask what their name is.  if matt and i are talking and he's listening he will ask the name of whoever we are talking about.
-whenever he doesn't like something or doesn't want to do something he will say, "i don't like you, your gwoss! or i don't like dat, it's gwoss!"  everything is gwoss.
-he's the most particular kid ever about the weirdest things.
-how he is the sweetest, most tender kid.  he is so cuddly and lovey.  he always wants to be held and he always wants to lay next to someone for naps or bedtime.

there is so much more i could write.  i just want to bottle him up and keep him at this age.  he is a little turd nugget at times, but his happy. precious moments make up for it times a million.

he is so cute with remi and loves to play with her.  sometimes a little too much.  she doesn't like to be touched or held and he LOVES to touch her or try and hold and pick her up.  he is good to share his toys with her or trade her toys and he is always so excited to see her in the morning.  they are cute.

brooks is pretty much wearing 3T clothes right now and in size 6 diapers.  we are going to start potty training him soon, but i don't want to rush it.  he already tells us when he needs to go to the bathroom but he has no interest in sitting on the toilet.  we shall see.

i can't believe he will be three in no time.  we love you brooks hayden!
