Our "baby" turns 2.5 in a couple of weeks! I haven't updated the blog for a LONG time so I thought I'd put some effort into it. So, starting with Ross, here are some updated pics of the guy that keeps us on our toes all the time!

This was St Patrick's day... the Sesame Street sign on his shirt was green so he wanted to wear it... but I couldn't get him to stand still for a decent picture.

Playing basketball in the garage. He kept saying "Ready... Set" and then shooting. Typically the ball went straight up and then hit him on the head.

Heading out the house one day he knocked his head and got an ouchie (very small) but he needs an ice pack immediately when he gets hurt. I got him a blue ice pack out of the freezer and he was a happy guy. Minutes later I hear a sucking noise in the back seat. He ended up biting a hole in the corner of the ice pack and sucking the ice out of it. I called Russ and told him to put poison control on speed dial :) The ice pack said 'do not ingest' on it... but luckily it also said non-toxic. He was pretty mad at me when I took it away from him.

Baby Kameron is done borrowing our car seat and Aunt Cheri returned it to us last weekend. Ross wanted to see if he still fit... I think he's grown a little :)

This was last night after bath time. He was cooperating and taking good pictures because I had pez candy :)

A few more updates:
* Ross is talking up a storm. Full sentences, knows what he wants, when he wants and can finally communicate those desires to us. His screaming and fits have decreased tremendously... although not completely.
* He's still scratching and biting at daycare :( They are moving him up to the 2.5 - 3 year old classroom and he bit in his new class yesterday... ugh! I can't WAIT until he grows out of the darn biting stage.
* LOVES to read books. His favorites this week are Llama llama and Diego seek & find book. The last couple of nights he has laid in Ryan's bed with Ryan and I reading books and then gets a couple more in his room as well... Little sneaker has figured out how to prolong book reading time for sure!
