It is hard to believe you are two years old now! You're growing up so fast and are learning so so much all the time! You are certainly making room for a new baby in our family!
You are quite mischievous and the twinkle in your eye is ever growing! ;) You will drag chairs from Alabama's room to reach whatever your heart desires. Like bananas while I'm still asleep. (Yes, seems like the perfect time to mention that you can and do climb out of your crib. Our only baby to ever try it.) Or candy or someone's cup. Probably with tea in it. If I think I put something out of your reach and then you make a way to get it, you'll look at me as you're reaching for it and smile and say "got it!!" As much as you like to be sneaky, you also love just as big! You give such good hugs and kisses! You wrap your little arms all the way around my neck and give the hardest squeezes! Pate and Alabama adore you and you are in love with them both. Unless Alabama is trying to pick you up. You usually go along with whatever they are playing and pretend right along with Alabama. So cute.
You have started talking so much now! You say so many words I didn't even know that you knew! Your favorite phrases are "Got it!," "Reeeeach," x "Hey Mama", "Hey girl", "No, no, Pate", "love you," "night night," and "Moan" (come on). A typical conversation might go like this:
Mama: "Where's Daddy?"
M: Yep, Daddy's at work.
M: That's right. Daddy works on cars.
You love to copy everything we say with just the same tone and inflection. It's hilarious!
Your favorite foods are : bananas, pancakes, cupcakes, candy, chicken, yogurt, popcorn, strawberries, and oranges. Of course, everything tastes better off someone else's plate! ha! No, Helen!
Your favorite books are : My Truck is Stuck, (you say uh-oh, uh-oh the whole time we read it!), Little Blue Truck, and Biscuit's New Trick.
You don't care about watching TV....or movies. ;)
You can count to three. You know that you are two! You like to put together puzzles.
The things you love to play the most are cars, trains, being outside, ball, riding on your bike or four wheeler, and babies.
You have 16 teeth and weigh 30 pounds. You wear size 24 month and 2T clothes. Size 7 shoe.
You're an excellent climber. You like to wear boots every day. (Now you also like to wear your new red tennis shoes.) You are picky about what clothes you want to wear! "That shirt!" you say. (I didn't know I had three girls! ha!)
You love dogs and notice them everywhere we go.
We love the joy, love, and fullness you have brought to our family! I know your sweet heart and determined spirit will do great things for the Lord one day! I count it as a special privilege to be your Mama and can't wait to see you grow in your love for the Lord and I pray you will serve Him all the days of your life!

Our sweet Blue boy turned 2! We had a fun Little Blue Truck party to celebrate! We had pigs in the blanket, veggie straws, popcorn, fruit salad and Pioneer Woman chocolate cupcakes! He had a fun time playing with his cousins and brother and sister, opened some fun gifts, and loved the cupcake!

|The most handsome boy in the world!|
Pate, my sweet, handsome boy! I am just so thankful for you. I love you more than you'll know! You are such a fun boy who loves to play outside. You just learned how to swing yourself and can go soo high! You like to play in the dirt and make mud and are also getting good at riding your bike! You also like to play with your cars and trucks. Lots of times, you pretend they are a family. To the big truck, "Hey Daddy!" And to the little one, "Yes, son." Makes me so happy. :) You love to "play" football. Mostly you like to get tackled and to kick the ball. You make Blue play with you sometimes and poor boy gets knocked down quite a bit. But he loves it, too. You started t-ball this year and learned a lot and had a fun time! T, step, and throw!
|Loving your skates!|
I love that you still don't say all your words correctly. :) Most of the time, you don't say the L sound, but say the W sound instead. Bwue, Mrs. Weesa, wemonade. You also say he instead of his. "He can't find he passy." But, there are a lot of things your say correctly, now. Instead of Axby's, you say Zaxby's!
You love Blue and he is over the moon in love with you! He wakes up from every nap calling, PATE! He loves to show you what he's got or what he's done. You are starting to play together a lot and I love that sweet brother friendship you have. He also likes to tell on you when you do something to hurt him. ha! You are really good at watching out for him and making sure he's ok.
We think you are a really funny kid! Sometimes you mean to be, and sometimes you don't! A couple weeks ago, you were upset at something I did and said in the funniest tone, "Mama Smelts!" haha! I guess you hear me say, "Pate Smelts!" a lot! Alabama asked you how you pushed yourself on the swing and you told her, "I just pat my back." ha! This week, we told you to show Papa your Georgia ball. In an exasperated voice, you told us, "But he don't have any eyes!!!" lol! Sometimes you ask me, "Is that just a joke?" ha!
|Silly hair in the bathtub|
You love to run fast! Two weeks ago, you got your very own "fast shoes!" We went to the mall to pick them out and they are blue Nike Lebron X's. (on sale but still way more than I normally would spend on shoes!!!) You are so proud of them and love to wear them all the time. Daddy let you wear them to church on Sunday and Alabama got so upset. She said, "Those are not church shoes!" You told her, "They wook wike church shoes.' "No they do not!!" she said. ha!
You have a few friends and they just love you! Jackson, Beau, Clara, Georgia, Caleb, Blakely, Brooklyn, and Caroline are a few.
You have great manners and I love to hear your sweet voice say, "Yes, Ma'am", "Thank you, Mama."
You can also be very mischevious and a little sneaky! It's hard to not get in the dirt or water outside before we have to go somewhere.
|Driving the boat! (Not seen in the picture, Alabama having a panic attack!)|
You are the only child we have who loves to go to sleep! ha! When you are ready for bed, you are going and with no lights on at all!
I'm extrememly partial, I know, but you are the cutest four year old boy I've ever seen!!!! I just love your cuteness overload! I could eat you up, I love you so! I know God has amazing things planned for you life and I'm so proud to have the awesome privilege of being your Mama!
