2.5 style

half birthday
happy half arie joseph :) 

you are always a silly 

your stats
38 in tall
and 31.6 lbs

you tell me No thank you doctor mommy
but we went anyway ;-)
and you are a healthy boy praise the Lord

what do you like at 2.5?
your big boat and sea boat
and traverse city
being silly
trying to get your way 
you love kids and your grandparents
your papa and your mama
saying silly things 
like no helmet naughty naughty and repeat
your words are coming more and more each day
and potty training is still in process, which we aren't rushing
you still nap [rare occasions you pass]
and like to be tucked in tight at night
the list could go on... :) 

so thankful to have you as my little man
