Peter, Age 2

Peter is two today! I don't think I've ever known a toddler who was quite so excited for a birthday - I think because the twins' birthday excitement coincided with his birthday, he really started to understand what exactly it all meant... For weeks he's been saying, "Peter ONE! On bir-day, be TWO!!!" and today when he woke up, while it took a little convincing, he realized that finally he is two! "Yestuhday Peter ONE. And now, Peter TWO!!!"



He was such an incredibly high-maintenance child between about 9 and 21 months that it's amazing what an awesome kid he's turned out to be. He's hilarious. And he knows it! He takes great pleasure in making everyone laugh, and his latest trick is to "grin" at us by making a grimace, putting his fists up, and shaking his whole body until we all dissolve into fits of laughter.




He frequently likes to tell us that things are "funny" or "jokes" even when they aren't. But his excitement about them makes them funny, so I suppose he's right! 



We put a "Happy Birthday" banner up and Peter was incredibly excited to see that there were TWO letters "P fo' Peeeeter!!!" He's been singing Happy Birthday to himself all day, and is really looking forward to going to IHOP for dinner (as am I, since it means I don't have to cook!).



His very favorite thing to do is go outside and do anything out there - walk to the pond, look for feathers, forage (although sadly there's not much to eat now that the hard frost has hit)... He *might* be satisfied to stay inside as long as we feed him constantly - it's hard not to, though, when he declares absolutely everything to be "So zhummy!" or "Dell-isious!!!" A child after my own heart, this one.



We made a group effort to get Peter to answer the birthday survey questions - I thought I'd have to give up when he insisted on answering every question "Gummy bears!!!" but we managed to eke out some pretty excellent answers. He definitely has strong preferences!
