Peanut is really, really reading. He points to signs from the car and reads them out loud to us. He has a couple of beginning-reader books that he can read almost competely by himself. It's so cool!
Bean is talking in sentences, including lovely phrases like "Mommy, leave me 'lone!" and "I do it!" He's transitioning into the terrible twos. Tantrums have increased exponentially and have ramped up from crying and the occasionaly lying-on-the-floor-and-kicking variety to the full-blown-ear-splitting-screaming variety. Yay.
He's still a sweetie, though. We get plenty of "I love yous".
