Caius

you are 2 years and 9 months old. here are some things I don't want to forget about you
  •  you sleep in a big boy bed, with no sussie anymore. you have an ikea duvet set and real pillow. when I come into your room sometimes at night for whatever reason, you look way to big but yet so little in your big boy bed. you're falling asleep around 8:15/8:30pm and are up between 6-6:30am during the week. thankfully because no one is up and showering on the weekends, there have been a few times you've slept in either close to or past 7am
  • you have a cup of milk and usually peanut butter toast every morning for breakfast. sometimes you'll share cereal with me or have a yogurt. daddy likes to make fancy breakfast on the weekends and you love to munch on bacon
  • the two things you ask for first thing in the morning is either play cars or watch iPad. if you're tired and more on the lazy side, you like to watch the iPad for a bit to wake up. 
  • you love, love, LOVE to play with your big bucket of cars. cars, monster trucks, diggers.. the whole shebang. you make the sounds of a monster truck constantly and for very long periods of time. you have so many other cool and fun toys but all you want to do is play with your cars and monster truck toys
  • you still nap in the afternoons. you sleep from 1-1:30pm until 3-3:30pm. some days you probably don't need a nap, but to avoid grouchiness and bedtime meltdowns, you nap. at the lake when we've skipped naps, you've done fine. at home, not so much
  • the lake is your happy place. you are so good out there for us. you love to play at the park, go for golf car rides, play at the beach & coming golfing with everybody. you sleep on nana & papa's camper table like a rockstar. the lake this year has been our funnest and easiest year with you yet
  • you are not super confident in the water. you like to walk in and then walk back out over and over. you don't like to jump in and you don't like getting submerged. just a couple of weeks ago, you swam in the deep end for the first time ever with your puddle jumper! it was super exciting but that's the only "swimming" you've done so far. we hope to put you in the swim school come winter time so you can learn some safe techniques and build up that confidence!
  • you still love your jubejube very much. he comes everywhere with us still. now that sussie is gone, you sleep with 2 broken sussies. it's a giraffe party in bed with you. 
  • you have 4 special little girl friends at daycare, Maya, Reese, Sadie & Charolette. you say "no tammy's house" every morning before we have to go. but you have the best time once you're there. hasn't been easy to take you to daycare when you're asking me to stay home
  • I think daddy is your favourite person. he acts crazy with you, does silly things with you and of course, plays monster trucks with you better then I do. daddy is wild and silly and you love it
  • we have one week of holidays with you at the end of July and that'll be out last stretch of holidays together as a family of 3. I'll be done work at the beginning of November and your baby brother or sister will be delivered at the end of November.
 we love your funny but loving personality. you say and do such silly things lately. you are pretty sensitive but yet fiery at the same time. you are cautious caius, there's no doubt about that. it doesn't mean you miss out on things, you just take a little while to warm up to the idea and then enjoy. we love you so much buddy.
