24 month update

1.) How old today?
Matthew is 3 days shy of 24 months (2 years) :-)
2.) New milestones/ talents/ achievements?
His speech is improving daily. And I just love it! 
3.) Favourite toys & favourite things to do?
He loves playing with a hosepipe
Loves to walk around with some of his cars
He loves his books and will point to all the pictures and wait for you to name the object
He is loving his new tent and tunnel
He loves anything to do with motorbikes
4.) Current words?
His latest words are "come" and "go". I also just love when he says "shhhweets" and when he calls me and I ignore me, he will say "mama" about twice and then in a louder, frustrated voice say "MAMA". lol!
5.) Favourite food and snacks?
Fizzer sweets and KFC chicken pops
6.) How is toddler sleeping at night?
He starts off in his cot and ends up in our bed. He will wake between 12:00 and 02:00 and cry the entire time. But once he's got his juice and is in our bed, we all sleep again until around 07:00. Can't really complain...
7.) Day naps?
He's at creche now and they have a nap from around 11:00 till 13:00 I think. Weekends he can still have 2 naps for the day, one morning and one afternoon.
8.) How many teeth – and how are teething issues going?
16 - just waiting on those molars now
9.) Weight and length?
Last clinic visit he was 89cms at 21 months. I'm not sure of his length now but he weighs just over 12kgs now.
10.) Clothing size and shoe size?
18-24 months, 1-2 years and can still fit into some of 3-6 months clothes. He wears a size 7 shoe
11.) Recent toddler ‘highs’?
I love that he chats so much and he just LOVES talking on the phone. The kisses I'll get when I'm 'hurt'. The fact that he (and us) understands so much more and communication is just so much better!
12.) Recent toddler ‘lows’?
It looks like the 'terrible twos' have hit. Tantrums and crying are the latest craze in our household. Oh and he can ignore us so very well!
13.) What are you looking forward to in the coming months?
Communication just getting better and better, potty training (read: no more diapers!), hopefully prepping for Matt's sibling :-)
14.) How are mommy and daddy doing?
We are doing great! We just need to work on managing our stress and and not taking it out on Matthew. Otherwise, we're both coping well and share all the parenting responsibilities. 


  1. Great update, Kim! I can't believe your brown-eyed angel is almost 2! I still think he is the most adorable little dude with those curly hair and big brown eyes <3

    1. :) Thank you so much Debra! I just love those curls and it will be one sad day (I mean week) if we have to cut it off.

  2. Ah this is a great update Kim!
    Can't quite believe how time flies, our kiddies have grown up so fast.
    Yum, KFC pops!!!

    1. Thanks Jess. I know, time means nothing when you're a mom.
      Hehehe, its the only take-aways he'll eat!


Please leave a comment. I would love to hear from you!
