Sleep talking or Awake?

So lately the munchkin has been stumping his daddy and mommy. We hear sounds coming from his bedroom, fullon converstaions even! We listen and listen, then sometimes we open the door, but we are not greated with that adorable little "HIIIII" instead no sounds issue forth. We have a sleep talker/player! For the last hour I have been listening as the little one has talked, banged the side of his crib, sang, and made other less distinguishable sounds. I opened his door and find a little one fast asleep on the bed! How crazy! I know I walked in my sleep as a child so I think I would much rather have him talk and make me think he is awake rather than have him go head first down the stairs!

With the increased sleep talking also comes another big milestone... His 2nd Birthday! I can hardly believe that my little munchkin is going to be 2 in just a little over a month! He has grown so very much, has developed by leaps and bounds, it amazes me that he was ever a tiny little baby! Ahh how time flies so quickly!

The land of the sleeping

So the past 3 weeks now it seems my munchkin has only one thing on his little mind... SLEEP! Oh how I never thought I would see this happen! He has been sleeping 12 hours at night and then taking a 3 hour nap in the late afternoon! Oh my goodness how this has just thrown me for a loop! Playdates and classes have had to be canceled due to his "sleeping in" and then his slow start to the day! The hubby and I are amazed at how much the little one wants to sleep and how he is putting up a very little fight compared to in the past! Oh how nice this is, although it can be a little bit annoying as well! He is definitely growing as a result of all this sleep, and man does my body feel it every time I go to pick him up. Although he is also becoming such a smart little one. He loves starting his ABC's from the letter I, he loves to do the Gymboree log freeze at the table while eating (it so cute since he does the little shoosh thing too!), he just started to use a fork without spilling the food from the fork (ok it's a spork but he doesn't need to know that), he can climb and run with the best of them, he loves to go outside and in the car in the morning and he absolutely loves his Gymboree class (although mommy doesn't like the fact that it is moving very far away from us and the drive is not so great!), oh and he loves hearing the story "Princess Baby Night Night" right before bed! So cute.

What an amazing little boy he is indeed!
