STATISTICS

HEIGHT:  35 1/4 inches (75 percentile)

WEIGHT:  28.6 lbs. (50-75 percentile)


HEAD SIZE:  50 cm. (75 - 90 percentile) - Basically, his head has been doing most of the growing these last few months.  He has never had a larger head before so this one surprised me.

FAVORITE COLOR:  Not sure yet but Evan thinks he likes blue

FAVORITE TOYS:  Books, anything with wheels, Mommy's and Daddy's phones and kindle, big brother's Wii and other games, and big brother


FAVORITE GAMES:  running around copying big brother in everything he does like trying to use the potty; dancing; baby wrestling (Evan's invention)

FAVORITE CARTOONS/TV SHOWS:   He has never really been into watching TV, but lately, he wakes up and comes in Mommy's and Daddy's room and hands us the remote to turn on the TV to his shows.  He won't sit still and watch for very long, but it does help keep him happy so Mommy and Daddy can get ready in the morning.  He usually enjoys shows like "Diego," "Dora," "Blue's Clues," "Yo Gabba Gabba," "Backyardigans," and any shows that play lots of music.  

FAVORITE SONG: He likes music that he can dance to...none of that slow stuff for him.  If he turns on the music on our stereo that is loaded with his kids music CD's, he'll keep changing until he finds something he can dance too.  One of his favorites is "I'm a wiggle worm."  


FAVORITE BREAKFAST FOODS:  He still just prefers his old favorites, yogurt and applesauce, although he does like to occasionally eat some cereal. 

FAVORITE LUNCH FOODS: He takes finger foods he can easily feed himself to school so he likes cheese cubes, cut up turkey, cut up grape tomatoes, and cut up pieces of fruit like grapes, oranges, or melon.  He likes other veggies too like carrots, celery, lettuce, etc., but we don't send those to school because of the choking hazard.

FAVORITE BEVERAGES:  milk and cold water with an occasional juice/water mixed drink (his cocktail)


FAVORITE SNACK:  anything brother is eating, cheese crackers, fruit, cheese sticks

FAVORITE ANIMAL:  definitely dogs since he still thinks he is one

FAVORITE BOOK:  "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom," any Dr. Seuss books, "I'm the big brother," and any books brother will read to him.  He brings us at least 6 books to read at night. 



FAVORITE PERSON:  Big brother Evan but Daddy is a close second

FAVORITE CEREAL:  Whatever Mommy is eating. 

FAVORITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE:  swinging and pushing my four wheeler or other ride on toys around the yard, and he has become very adept at throwing a ball.

FAVORITE HOLIDAY:  Not sure yet but we think he enjoyed Christmas and Easter

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT:  Myrtle Beach and Disney World (the two primary places he has vacationed in his short life)

FAVORITE TOY TO SLEEP WITH:  his silky blankie

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO EAT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY:  cake, definitely cake, since he already had cupcakes at his party

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP:  not sure...maybe a dog?

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT YOU:  I am a good little brother, a good listener, and a good snuggler.  I am Mommy's sweet little cuddly boy who gives the best love.

Dear Brody,

Where did the last two years go?  It seems like just yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital. You have really developed quite a personality in the last year.  You can be so sweet and loving, but you are definitely all boy and are so tough.  You definitely want things your way and will get so frustrated when you don't get it.  You are so physical (just the opposite of your brother) so your temper is displayed by physical acts of throwing things, turning over your chairs and table, etc.  We are so glad you are starting to get more verbal and hope that verbal communication will lessen your frustration.  You are a very smart little boy and love figuring things out for yourself.  You are also such a big helper these days and love throwing your trash away, wiping up messes, and helping to pick up toys.  You are already very adept at using technology and love getting hold of our phones or kindle.  You make lots of calls to family and friends.  Your newest fascination is getting your little chair and climbing in it to reach the light switches and turn them on and off.  You love to climb onto your little chair to reach the kitchen counter to see what we are doing and to "help" us.  You still love any source of water so I know you are going to love the pool this summer.  You are just tons of fun, and you brighten our home with your sweet smiles and giggles.  You also give the best hugs and kisses and make the cutest kissing sounds.  While I miss the beautiful little baby that you were just a short time ago, I am so proud to watch you grow into a sweet and beautiful little boy and man.  And you will always be my baby!  

Love always,

Mommy
