Gregory at 2 years

He is 2 today!

Although I used to think that life is passing quickly prior to kids, now I see it flying.  Just wait till you have your own and you will see....frankly I got no idea how its already been 2 years and that next year I can send him to kindergarten.

Anyhow, I am meant to write about my baby boy- because at 2 he is still a baby that needs so much attention and love.

Greg at 2 is trying to talk in actual sentences not just 2 word phrases.  He says new words everyday- either heard from us or from his current DVD.  He is super attached to all his grandparents (in fact he mentions them all the time and when it s time to leave we normaly always have a short tantrum) and LOVES to meet up with his cousin Rebecca (even his other cousin but he mentions more Rebecca!).  His favourite past time is still going out in the countryside and getting dirty- well not intentionally but he enjoys playing with soil, water etc :)

At home, he loves to play with cars mostly, read books and draw.  He also enjoys watching his DVDs - at the moment Dora!  He likes to help me around the house especially sweeping and cleaning the bath. Oh and cooking or rather cutting up veg.  He is starting once more to try foods that usually he just refuses like banana and cake to mention 2.  He didn't fancy the banana but the cake said yummy LOL.  Practically he understands both Maltese and English and am quite impressed with him lately.  He is saying his numbers till 10 in both languages, knows the ABCs, can distinguish the colours & also a few shapes.

With the arrival of his new sister last week, Greg became more sensitive and of course asks for me a lot.  We've been having once more nap problems coz of this and therefore more tantrums etc due to overtiredness.  However its starting to calm down slowly.  On the other hand he loves his baby sister and is all the time patting her nice and kissing her.  He is asking a couple of times a day the breast which is conforting him in this moment of unbalance and I do not mind.

My sweet baby is growing too quickly not just in age and so I savour this moment where he is snuggled to me to sleep, when he asks for the breast and looks at me with those beautiful eyes all enquiring, when he tantrums that he only wants mama to get him to sleep and my heart breaks if I can't.  I miss our moments alone and yet I know we will forge new ways to enjoy silent moments together.

My Gregory is two today and I am so happy to have had 2 wonderful years with him so far.  May God give us many more years of these!
