nicolai is now a big brother to his "best bud" (as i remind them both often), matteo.
he is full of (perhaps too hard) hugs and squeezes.
strangers continue to complement his speaking abilities.
recently he discovered he can stand up in the center of the hot tub which has freed him to jump from the side and try more tricks.
finally he can touch the ground on his kick bike so we're hoping to help him gain confidence there.
he is full of opinions which he's never shy to share with us.
we find ourselves reminding him to use his kind words and manners during those whiny or demanding moments.
lately he likes making up stories, which always begin "once upon a time..."
we love having our 2 year old sous chef at our side in the kitchen for meal prep and play dough/paint making.
