He started preschool in September and has been getting sick a lot more than usual, like at least once a month, which has been frustrating. When this happens, we always keep him home with Hannah for at least a week, but I’m not sure how this is going to work out when Hannah leaves. How do other working parents handle this…I have no idea. I just hope he builds up his immune system and gets sick less often. I know it’s to be expected for him to get sick more in a school situation, but come on…the poor guy!

His pickiness has been getting a lot better, he is more willing to try new foods and sometimes likes them. Not a great eater though and usually always wants to eat the same things! He loves chicken nuggets and fish sticks, blueberries, smoothies (that’s where we sneak in the vegetables), Sandwiches or Bagels with Peanut Butter and Honey, coconut or soy Yogurt and Granola Bars.
We will just keep trying and offer him new foods regularly. He even ate turkey for Thanksgiving which was a huge surprise to us!
He dropped his nap pretty quickly after his second birthday. So right now he sleeps from 7:30pm to 7 or 8am every morning. He does very well with it and it works for all of us. He still does one hour of “rest time” in his crib every day from 1-2pm, where he can play with his toys.
Only pull ups at night, no more diapers during the day!
18-24 months pants, some 2T. He wears 3T shirts and Jammies and size 7 shoes!
I asked him if he could sit still for one picture and this is what I got...ha!
Ever since he started school this summer, he has been doing much better in social situations. He now plays with other kids and sometimes even goes up to older kids at the playground and asks them to play with him. He loves school and made a best friend there.
He still doesn’t like crowds though and is a total homebody. He would be happy being home and playing with his toys all day, every day.
Now I know that no one but me wants to read all this, but I want to write it all down, so it goes in our blog book/Fox’s memory book! I made notes on my phone over the last 6 months…so here we go:

- Katie told Fox to be polite and say please and thank you when he wanted to get a toy from her and Fox said "I already have it”.
- "Popsicles make me sad"

- One night I was rocking him before bed and started singing. He quickly said: "Your singing makes me sad. Let's be quiet."
