He's weighing in just under 27 lbs and is 33 inches tall. He has a pretty good vocabulary and has recenlty started saying yes or no to questions. Normally I can offer him something and he just takes it but last week, out of the blue, he started shaking his head no. We were at Target and I asked him if he wanted 'this truck' and tried to hand it to him...he pushed it back to me and shook his head no. I think I just stared at him for a few seconds because he caught me off guard! We went through that exchange at least 5 times before I found the one he was wanting...I love it.
He's also my big time helper. He is exerting his "I want to do it" sense of self and whenever I fold towels he wants to take them to the linen closet or if I have something to throw away he asks me for it and then he throws it away. The other night he was about to get in the tub (one of his all time favorite things to do) and I took off his diaper and was about to put it on the counter to throw away later when he grabbed it, took off running (naked) to the kitchen trash can and threw it away...then clapped his hands. Yesterday I took the trash out of the can and set it into the garage and he got SO upset that I wouldnt let him carry it out there. I'm not really sure how long this "helper" will last, but I'm loving it while it does.Dancing has reached a new level. There's this song on the wiggles that gives commands and he follows all of them. He points his fingers, twists, goes up, goes down, spins around, all of it. I've got to get it on video and upload it so ya'll can see it. It is so, so cute. We are always watching the Wiggles it seems. We dance the day away and I love how much he loves music and loves to dance. He is definitely my kid.
His climbing is getting out of control. He can be on the floor then on the kitchen table in two seconds flat. I think when I went to see the Bourne Ultimatum and then Ocean's 13 while pregnant he was listening very carefully on how to operate some stealth moves. It amazes me how strong and agile he is. He is most definitely 110% boy.

We go 90 mph all day, every day. We dance to the wiggles, laugh at the cats, build towers with blocks, read tons of books and play with his trucks. No complaints here :)
