Loving: what we call "sampler" lunches. Right now his lunch of choice is a plate of apples, pickles, cheese and crackers. It's so fun now because I can say, "Henry, what do you want for lunch today?" and he answers..which still blows my mind. A lot of the time he'll say "A cookie, Mommy!" but then will laugh and say, "Nooo...okay, I want pickles. And cheese. And crackers. And an apple. On a plate! ...while watching DUMBO!" Smart kid.
Listening to: He has the same few songs he's always into, and every once and awhile I'll put a song on (we listen to Spotify while driving and at home) he'll say "ooh I like this one!" and I'll add it to his little playlist of Henny-approved music. Right now he's really into The Gaslight Anthem. I wonder where he got that from?
Going: to his 2 year appointment, a month late. I'm not sure why it was scheduled for last week, but it was, so we went! Henry did great with his one shot (we're on the Dr. Sears schedule if anyone's interested), and he didn't even cry which was really surprising. He HATES the ear thing though and screams bloody murder until it's put away, so that wasn't so fun. At his appointment he was 3 feet, 1 inch and 31 pounds. Big kid and growing like a weed. It's so fun to see his growth, and pretty crazy to think his next appointment isn't until he's 3 years old. It seems so far away but I know it will be here in the blink of an eye. "The days are long but the years are short."
Making him happy: Candy Cane Joe-Joe's from Trader Joe's, the song Jingle Bells over and over- all versions including the barking dog rendition, classic holiday movies like Frosty but not like Rudolph (the Abominable Snowman is scary), FaceTiming with Gigi and Poppy, bear hugging Madeline, waking up so slowly then finally yelling "Come onnnnn Mommy! I'm awaaaaaake!" once he actually gets up, fruit and more fruit, waffles with peanut butter, his beanies, kicking the soccer ball and dunking his basketball in the hoop, dumptrucks and garbage trucks, and all Daddy all the time!
