Eric is TWO

Posted by Elizabeth on May 26, 2011

Eric is officially 2, but acts like he is about 3 1/2. He is such a crazy little boy and I can’t help but love him for every ounce of his personality.

He talks in complete sentences. With the filler words too. One of my favorite recent conversations with him was while we were passing Grant’s school. Eric: “It’s Grant’s school day today?” Me: “No, Grant doesn’t have school today.” Eric (really excited): ” Is it my school day today?!?” Man I wish I could send that little boy to school.

He can count to four on his own. This I attribute to us counting as we go up and down the stairs. Since their are plenty of stairs in the house, he started counting on his own really quickly.

He is getting SO independent. He likes to do EVERYTHING himself. If Grant can do it, he can do it. He climbs on and off the barstools by himself. He puts on his rain boots. But that…I suppose is all just being two…

I think the thing that gets me the most of him is how he understands things. Last week he was carrying his blankie all over the house. When it was bedtime, blankie was somewhere downstairs. Aunt Sarah said to Eric “Eric, you know that your blankie is supposed to stay in your bed. If you carry it all over, then it isn’t there when you want it. You are going to have to go to sleep without it tonight.” Grant would have protested and completely had a meltdown (and with how much Eric loves his blankie, I totally would have expected him to as well. But his simple reply with a sniffle was ” Okay.” Then he laid down, grabbed another blanket and went to bed.

Really I just love that Eric has overall been an easy child for me. Let’s hope the next one can follow suit…

    The last I saw him, he was a newborn. I can’t believe he is two. And “the next one can follow suit…” – Is that an announcement?
