A Working Guy…Another month older (27 Months)

Last month was the first that I almost forgot to write an update and this is the first month that truly feels like Micah hasn't really been all that different from the month before. It's the first month that I am considering retiring the monthly development posts and busting out the Birthday and Half Birthday posts instead. Will everyone be ok with that? Perhaps I will still try to do a photo dump of sorts each month, since he is so adorable. I'm not biased or anything….

This month Micah:
  • was fun to hold conversations with
  • enjoyed both mommy, daddy, and gramma time
  • celebrated Thanksgiving with the Lewins
  • thought about what made him joyful each day
  • had a much better understanding of Christmas and Hanukkah after reading lots of holiday books and listening to holiday music 
  • loved everything tools and working guys
  • had his first real stomach bug with a visit to the Doctor just to make sure that's what it was
  • had his first hot chocolate, first candy cane, first meeting with Santa, and made his first graham cracker house
  • has been counting and reading and even rhyming spontaneously
  • has had lots of little crying two year old moments, especially when leaving the playground

Inspired by the gingerbread houses, we made our own. Micah loved counting the smarties on the pathway.
