So it’s been 5 months since I last updated about Piggie Smalls. Rereading through all of my old posts about him I just can’t believe how fast they change and grow up, especially in the 2nd year! Here is what Piggie has been up to:
He’s not so much a Piggie anymore 🙁
He weighs less now than he did when he was 9 months old. From 9 months to 18 months, he was the same weight; 26 lbs. I didn’t weigh him again until this month and he’s 24.5 lbs! He actually eats more now than he ever did but of course he runs around all day long, doesn’t sit still for more than 2 seconds.
His only full sentence is “What’s that?” which he pronouces “Whasat?” He says it so much that it haunts our minds constantly, we hear it even when he’s not around lol. One day he pointed to every single flower on a bush and asked for each one “Whasat?!”. I believe in the last few days he has started saying “Where is it?” (whe is it) and “I don’t know” (don knoow). He knows a ton of animal names and loves to do their sounds. He understands Spanish just as good as English, which I find crazy cause he’s with me all day so you’d think he’d understand less Spanish. Toddler brains are truly sponges!
He’s a mime
He copies everything we do. If you lift your cup to drink, so does he. Copies any word I say now (scary, I need to start watching my mouth better).
He loves to dance
Anytime music comes on, he starts dancing. More than once he has attracted a crowd when we’re out in public.
He loves to be outside, he’ll bring you his shoes which he thinks guarantees that he’ll get to go.
For the word “yes”, he says “dow”. Don’t know where he got that from!
He loves wrestling with Luis.
In the morning, as soon as he wakes up he crawls over and says “Hiiiiii” right in my face.
He loves grapes, strawberries, cheerios, pizza, and french fries :/ Mama is not so happy about the last two, but those are my favorite foods too, so it’s my fault.
His favorite toys are cars and trains. He looooves trains.
His favorite shows are: Thomas the Train, Eebee, Go Diego Go, and Yo Gabba Gabba. He also loves our phones and tablet cause he loves all the toddler games on there. I’m currently trying to stop this developing interest in screen time.
He says “Ruuuuun!” and proceeds to run around.
He likes to act like he’s scared of bugs.
His new nickname has been “Insane-o” because…he’s pretty insane.
