And it's sad. Happy and sad. He's so cute and says all these cute little things, and I can usually tell what he means. And then he won't stop talking, and says all the same things over and over, throws tantrums left and right, regular 2 year old stuff.
Recently I gave him a haircut. I did it when Dan was out of town. I'm sure everyone in the world is mad at me, but I'm telling you - after a certain point curly haired guys get to be stringy shaggy haired guys and it's not cute. I figured if I buzzed it, it will all grow out evenly for the next time it's curly. It worked for Charlie. I'm hoping it works for Luke (although Charlie's was always curlier.)
Other things that make Luke seem old:
he no longer has baby chub,
he wears underwear (he really wants to potty train - not great timing for me),
he reads books to himself,
he watches TV (he has never been interested before now),
he wears 3T clothes,
he wants to be a ninja.
Luckily he still has his blankie and thumb to make him seem babyish. And he still likes to cuddle.
