Eric turned 2 years old last week! He doesn't go to his 2 year check up for a few more weeks so I don't know his stats yet . . . though I think we've still got a skinny little man on our hands. Eric is such a happy little guy and is talking up a storm. He's mostly speaking in sentences and really can hold a conversation now. He will tell us what he did in school during the day and who he played with.
Eric is an easy going little boy who typically has a smile on his face. He is starting to enter the terrible twos though I have noticed that I am not nearly as strict with discipline as I was with Evan at this age. So I am going to have to crack down on that if we are going to survive the next 2 years. Eric can generally get away with much more than his brother could at this age. Where Evan used to feel bad about doing wrong and being in time-out, Eric just smiles at us. And at times I can't help but smile back.
Eric loves all things Thomas the Tank Engine right now. He will play at the train table every single night before dinner. Eric can name the names of all of the trains and enjoys watching Thomas on the television whenever we let him. He also plays on the iPad and it's amazing the things he can do on there - he really likes the matching games and puzzles.
Eric continues to be a little miniature version of Brian. It constantly amazes me how much he looks like and acts like his father. He loves music just like Brian and sings along to the songs Brian has introduced him to when they come on the radio. He will also sing us songs that he has learned in school. He is full of life, loves to give us hugs and kisses and just fits so well into our family. I just can't believe he's 2 years old already!
