I’m not sure there is a way to write about how amazing this little man is… At 2 years old he is one of the sweetest, most thoughtful people I know. Being the middle child surely isn’t easy, but August embraces it and truly is one of the best brothers to Shae and Emmett that I could ever hope for.

August is the best sleeper, still! Thank God for this fact, because 2 difficult sleepers is more than enough for one family. He goes down extremely easily, and can even sacrifice his bedtime routine if needed and will still sleep through the night without a peep. In the morning he still likes to wake up and lay around in his crib for a bit before standing up, but still will very rarely call out or cry for me to come get him. His patience is unmatched and I am so grateful for that. August still takes 1 1.5-3 hour nap in the afternoon.
August potty-trained extremely well at about 21 months. He will still have the occasional accident if he gets too busy playing and I forget to make him stop and go. He rarely fights going to the potty, although I think that may change a bit once we start spending more time outside. I’m sure his father would love to teach him how to go outside, but I’m not so sure the neighbors would appreciate that very much. Clint had a proud Father moment when he took August to the bathroom in public and August used his first urinal- its the little things that make Daddy’s proud I guess?
My little man loves any type of balls, especially his football and a new favorite is his soccer ball. I love the way he says “soccer ball” right now… so darn cute! One of his favorite things is pestering his sister by grabbing whatever her most favorite toy of the moment is and running full speed away from her while she shrieks at the top of her lungs running after him. This is one of the few times that he is a little ornery, and honestly its good for Shae! Usually if he is being a real pill I will make him give whatever toy it is back to her, and he always does so without protest. Most of the time, however, I try to let them work it out amongst themselves… thats what siblings are for right?
He is wearing 2T pants and 2-3T shirts. He still definitely has a belly on him, and I’m pretty obsessed. No more diapers except a pull-up or diaper at nap/night. He loves his “toodles undies”, but I prefer him in his boxer-briefs… I mean come on, does it get any cuter?!
August still loves all food for the most part. He is still a meat guy, and loves meats over pastas and starches typically. His favorite food right now is probably yogurt, and would eat greek yogurt at every meal if I let him. There is rarely a food he won’t eat, but he isn’t a huge fan of casseroles.
