They grow up so fast

It was a fairly chilly day today, what with the rain and all, so Marshy got to wear his new fall clothes for the first time. Can you believe he is in a 3T?! He isn't officially 2 until the end of the month. Yes, I know he is ginormous.

Anyway, all day today as I watched him play at work and at home, I kept thinking how "growed-up" he looked! He has suddenly gone from being my sweet little baby to a full-sized toddler. When we got home he wanted to "cowa" (Color) in his book. So I got his book and crayons out.

Above: finding the page he wanted to color. His crayons are in the beat up plastic cup. We tried to keep them in the crayon box, but he has an obsession with ripping apart boxes into little bity pieces.

Below: Laying down to color in his book. He has never done this before! I was so glad I had the camera out when he decided to do it for the first time.

Below: He stood up to put his crayons back in the cup. Can you see what a big boy he is?! He is huge for a 2 year old. And his clothes don't really look that big on him. I especially love his little sneakers. I bought them for him earlier in the year. I think it was April or May, but then it got too hot for him to wear sneakers. I bought 7's for some odd reason, even though he didn't wear that size at the time. Luckily that is what he wears now, and they still fit him, even with socks on! He loves his sneakers....especially the laces. His favorite new game is to untie them while we're driving in the car and then cry until mommy stops and ties them back up.Now he's dancing to the music I"m listening to. My SIL all went to the Breaking Dawn release party in our area, and they got an Edward and Bella cd....the track list is here. I borrowed it the other day and put it on my computer and my MP3 player. LOVE the music! Anyway, Marshy loves the music too, because everytime I turn it on he starts to dance. I wish I could figure out how to put videos on here, because it would seriously be the cutest video ever!!

I love it when they start to dance.
My oldest son was a big kid too. The problem with this is that people will think they are older than they are, and expect them to act older. Two year olds do not act like four year olds.

A bit of advice, buy velcro shoes until he grows out of the tie/untie/tie/untie/tie/untie phase. At that age, they can put those on all by themselves. (And off, and on, and off, and on, and off, and on................)

How adorable. He's one of those kids that I love. NOT skinny. NOT fat. Has both eyes level and no snot on his chin. You are doing something right!

Nothing beats a dancing baby. My daughter is 2 1/2 and she is just now fitting into her 2T clothes. And she's only wearing size 5 shoes, with room to spare. I'm thinking your Marshall is a lot bigger than my Leah. That's okay. I've come to terms with the fact that Leah is a peanut.
