Piglet's 20 something month update

I'll admit it.  I have not been very good at keeping up with Piglet's monthly updates.  In fact, the last one I did was two (almost three) months ago.  Hmm....what could have been happening in the last three months to make me such a slacker?  Not much, not much at all. ;)  

Also, I don't think I'll be able to do monthly updates for him forever, and there will eventually have to be an endpoint, right?  Today I was just thinking about all the words he says now and I wanted to document them (as I'm sure I'll look back and want to compare the twins with him).  That's right, I'm a mother and I'm not above comparing my children.  Right now it's twins 1, Piglet 0 as they passed their NT scan and he did not!  

Anyway, Piglet has been talking up a storm lately, surprising Mr. K and I when we just say "Piglet can you say _______?" out of habit and he repeats us as if to say "That's right, suckers, I CAN say that!  I've been able to for awhile!"  

A sampling of Piglet's spoken words:
  • Yes
  • No
  • Gingee
  • Eat
  • Juice
  • Up
  • Down
  • Gotta go!
  • Car
  • Bus
  • Choo choo
  • Blue
  • Underwear 
  • Basketball
  • Outside
  • Cheese
  • Night night
  • Poop
  • All done
  • Crane
  • Book
  • Cracker
He is also all about walking on the sidewalk, at the mall, down the driveway -- all by himself.  He totally gives me the hand brush off when I go to hold his hand.  Already too cool for mom I guess.  Piglet continues to be an awesome mimic and it is hysterical, making for some very entertaining and memorable dinner times! Sometimes I look at him toddling around the house with his snack trap or playing on the rug with his trains and I feel like my heart might burst from being so full of joy and love.  

In a few short months he'll turn two years old and then a few short months after that he'll become a big brother.  Mind-boggling but true.  And once again my heart feels like it might burst.  

And because I haven't posted an update with photos in so very long, here are some pictures (a few of them grainy because they were taken with my phone) of Piglet from the past few months.  Besides, let's face it.  Most of you just skipped all the text above and went right for the pictures anyway.  :)

He is unbelievably adorable!

I had a toilet facial at work today. :( I tried to eat a piece of birthday cake - I still cannot do sweet stuff!

He is such a cutie pie! :)

I've started doing three month updates. That seems to be more "do-able". :)

I read all the words, I promise. :) He sounds just like my Bean. I adore this age, I am constantly cracking up at things he says (real words or just creative babbling) and melting inside at the things he does (picking up two stuffed animals at once and giving them each a hug and a kiss). I keep saying to DH, can you imagine having two of these roaming around here at once? Unreal!
