Miller is 3

I still can't believe that it's been three years since Miller was born, officially June 27th, I'm just a little behind.  It feels like a blink of an eye and at the same time like he has always been a part of our family.   I've found that time seems to move a lot faster now that I have kids.  I decided to do a little recap like I used to do when they were babies.

Miller,
 I know I say this every year but I think the change from two to three was by far the most significant.  You went from being a baby to a little kid this year.  I can't believe what a little person you've turned into and I can't wait to see what this next year holds for us.  Your little personality is sparkling, you're so friendly and will talk to any person you meet.  You love making new friends and being around other kids.  You are so social without a shy bone in your body, I hope you always stay that way.


Weight: 29lbs 
Height: 38in 
(these are guesses we do to his check up today so I will update these) 

You are still a tall skinny kid!  

Clothes:  Size 3T and some 2T shorts/swim trucks because you're still so darn skinny! 

Favorite Foods:  Eggs, waffles with almond butter, pretzels, broccoli, avocado, sweet potatoes,  ravioli, hot dogs, tacos, and spinach quiche. Oh and chocolate- you're are a chocoholic and would eat it all day long if I let you!   We still struggle to get you to eat fruit so you still eat the fruit and veggie pouches. 

Sleep: Going to bed around 7:30pm and waking up around 6-6:30am.  Some nights you go to bed at 7pm some nights not until 8:30pm.  You take a nap about 80% of the time usually from 2-4pm.  You don't think you need a nap anymore but on those days you don't man you are a cranky one ;)  

Likes: 
- dinosaurs- you are still going strong with your love for dinosaurs! It started somewhere around Christmas and they're still your favorite.  I have learned so much about them from you, it's amazing how much knowledge a 2 year old can take in about a subject they love.  
- the pool
- the beach
- the park and playing outside
- school- you loved school this year and miss your friends so much this summer
- playing with friends- you will be friends with anyone that will play with you 

Favorite tv shows/movies:  Dinosaur train, Dinotrux, Dino Dan, Paw Patrol, Blaze,  Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Planes, and Finding Nemo

Milestones:  
- School- you went to school this year two times a week for 2.5 hours and you loved every minute of it!! 
- Talking- when we started your second year you were still a pretty new talker and by 2.5 you were chatting away in full blown sentences.  Now we can't ever get you to shut up! You've officially entered the why phase.  Why Why Why and it's hard some days not to just say because I said so to every why!  
- You gave up your pacifier!! This was a fight I was dreading for so long because you loved it so much but one day in March we lost it and we couldn't find it before bed that night.  You ended up sleeping fine but woke up the next morning asking for it.  We explained how it got lost and you said ok, a little sad but understanding.  You maybe asked for it two more times and then you were over it.  I think the fact that you lost it rather than us taking it away really helped make the transition smooth.   
- Potty Training-  I would say you're 90% potty trained!!  We have our good days and bad days but in general you're really good about it.  We still do pull ups at nap and nighttime for now.  

Social/School/Sports:  As I mentioned above you are still  a social butterfly and love being around people.  This upcoming year you will be in preschool three days a week and you will be playing soccer two days a week!  I'm so interested to see how 3 year old soccer goes.  I'm hoping to keep you in a playgroup or gym/art class on your days off.
