Dear Hunter

Hunter,

How is it possible that you're 2 already? I can't believe how quickly time has gone by. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was watching American Idol as my contractions were starting to get more intense. Now you're running around, climbing everything, jumping off of everything you climb, and talking up a storm! My goodness do you talk...and you speak your mind {I think you get that from your sister!} You generally have good manners. You say please and thank you on your own. When meals are over you often times remember to ask to be excused. One of the newest things you've started saying is, "bess oooo" when someone sneezes.

You're starting to become a picky eater and you love anything sweet. Today you heard me say "sugar" and you're now running around the house saying it over and over again! If you don't get the sweets that you want, you're not afraid of letting us know that you aren't happy about it. You don't like noodles which came as a surprise to me! I thought all kids were in love with things like spaghetti. French fries are your all time favorite food right now.

You are loving to play with your sister and you guys have your fair share of sibling fights. You enjoy taking toys away from her that she's playing with because you know that she's going to get mad and be really angry about it. As soon as I can talk her down and she asks for the toy back quietly, you hand it over. You play dress up with Eden, too. You usually wear your pirate costume and use the sword. Sometimes you can be found wearing princess shoes though. If any toy has wheels or wings you will find it and you will want it!

You're mastering the art of throwing tantrums and telling us "no" now that you've hit 2! You're proving that you might be more stubborn than your sister {which I didn't think was possible!} Your tantrums are textbook and you're very good at them. They're full on running and throwing yourself on the floor before crying and screaming. So far Mommy and Daddy have held strong through most of the tantrums and just let them run their course and ignored them while you've been in the process of being angry. I know this is just a phase, but it's one of the ones that I'm hoping passes quickly!

As you continue to grow up and become more and more of a little boy, and no longer a baby or a toddler, I can only hope that you continue to be a kind and loving person.

Love,
Mommy
