These days Tate is weighing in at around 37 pounds and is almost too big for my mama arms to carry him! At his 2 1/2 year appointment he was half of Geoff's height measuring in a 3 feet 2 inches tall! He continues to top the charts in all his growth areas, though his eating habits can be picky at times.
This little guy is beginning to become a little more independent and test his boundaries. If you ask Tate a question his immediate response will always be "no!" Even when I ask, "Tate, would you like some ice cream?" "NO!" (a moment of silence from him) "I mean yes." It's just an immediate reaction these days and boy is it driving me nuts! I know most of it is a phase that all toddlers go through and move past, but it can speed up a little faster!!
On a positive note, Tate is officially potty trained (see HERE for the post update and how we did it!). He caught on really quickly once we started and has been great, even staying dry for most naps! Way to go buddy!!
From birth Tate has been the most lovable little child and continues to be. He snuggles with me more hours out of his day than any other activity. I don't want to complain because I know one day the snuggles will go away, but sometimes he can be literally smothering! He will sit in your lap forever if you let him and can give one mighty, big hug!
Tate, we love you and love the amazing, helpful, loving little boy you are growing into (just please grow a little slower!).
