*This was written throughout the day of Beau’s 2nd Birthday on April 24th, 2015*
Two years ago, my life was forever changed and enhanced to the max, for two years ago I became a Mom! My babies are my biggest blessings, and I am so thankful they are mine!
Two years ago, Beau Duke Bailey was born into the world and Miss Greta Rose was born three months ago! Time is just flying by with my babies!
Beau Rascal, or our Beau-Bud as we call him most, is such a FUN kid! He is ALL boy! This kid can climb like a monkey, has crazy good balance, runs super fast and is always energized! As crazy as he can be (and he can be pretty crazy!) he is equally sweet 🙂 The little guy is a little lover! He will always stop what he’s doing to give you a kiss or a hug if you ask him for one. Sometimes he just plants one on us out of nowhere and it is so sweet! My favorite though is when he gives me a kiss because he sees Patrick give me a kiss…he just wants in on the loving! Aside from being the best son two parents could ask for, he’s an awesome big brother! He has totally impressed us with how well he has taken to his little sister. The little boy who always said “No! No! No!” When we said the word “baby” while pregnant has never once been jealous of his sister, or mean to her in any way. He instead replaces her paci for her if it falls out of her mouth, sneaks her snacks like chocolate and french fries (Yeah…did I mention he’s an awesome sharer?! LOL!) and gives her lots of forehead kisses. We ALL love our Beau-Bud!
At two years old, Beau talks A LOT…we just don’t know what he’s saying lol. He isn’t a super strong talker, but he is getting better each day, repeating words we ask him to say and also surprising us with words we didn’t know he knew! His favorite words are “dog”, “George” (He’s a BIG Curious George Fan!), “choo choo”, “uh oh”, “no way”, “Da!”, “Ma!” and “Greta”. Even though he isn’t a strong talker, he is an excellent mover. He loves to run and man, he is fast! He loves to be chased, and makes us laugh how he already knows to put a piece of furniture between him and his chaser! He also enjoys jumping…not just jumping, but jumping off of things…ALL BOY! He always jumps from the bottom two steps…always! He can be calm at times though, and that is usually when he is zeroed in on a TV show or movie. His favorite shows are Curious George, Thomas, Super Why and Word Girl. His favorite movies are Curious George and Wreck It Ralph. Beau is also calm when he gets into his books. He loves Curious George (Surprise, surprise!) Muddy Paws, Just One More, and The Wheels on The Bus (which he also loves to try to sing!) At two, he is super into cars and trains. He loves anything with wheels! We find it impressive that he lines up all of his cars and trains in a long straight row. He also loves balls and has a pretty strong little arm on him! I would say he’s taken most interest in basketball as he and his daddy go out and play in the driveway and also at the YMCA.
Beau is pretty social. I don’t think he’s ever cried when we’ve left him with a babysitter or at a drop in daycare. He’s also a really good sharer which really impresses us! At this age where it’s usually “Mine!” he is really good at sharing with others, whether it be his food (he loves to feed people!) or toys.
Beau loves water! Getting him to take a bath is never difficult! And he loves washing his hands! In fact, he hates his hands to be dirty.
At two, I think a good word to sum up this boy is “Fearless”…not much rattles him. He falls and gets back up. His daddy throws him in the air and he laughs and asks for more! He’s one in a million our little Beau Duke, and we’re so glad he’s all ours! I’ll end this post with a collection of Beau’s Birthday “party hat” photos 🙂
