[2nd birthday] Interview with the Toddler.

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

While July and Mason's birthday have both come and gone, I still wanted to post this.
Stealing this idea from Laureen (and adding a few of my own questions) and posting some questions and answers about Mason for his second birthday. I thought it would be a fun tradition to start on each of his birthdays and also nice to look back on years from now and see how his tastes have changed.

How much do you weigh?
28 lbs {40th percentile}

How tall are you?
34.5 inches {60th percentile}

What size clothes do you wear?
Tops : 18-24 months in shirts, but could definitely wear 2T shirts for the length

  1. such a fun sweet post to capture his favs at this age! I love the pile of stuffed animals in the corner of his bed! Callie sleeps with a ton but the only one she sleeps with is her bunny :) But heaven forbid I try to take some out to make more room for her!

  2. Cute! It will be even funnier when he starts to answer them with the most random comments ;).

  3. Awe! So Sweet! Crazy how they change in a year!

  4. Bows bows! Hello adorable!! I love this little questionare. It's so so fun!!

  5. Fabulous idea!!!! I have been randomly asking Lily questions to remember but I REALLY need to write them in a post....even though her birthday and MONTH has already passed us by as well. Thanks for the inspiration mama!

  6. What a fantastic tradition to start!! I'm sure you'll be so glad that you did this and will enjoy looking back at it in the years to come! Love all the adorable pics you included! :o)

  7. Great idea! I might be borrowing this for Reese's 2nd birthday :)

    Also love that his favorite game is destruct-o - I know what that's like!

  8. Love it!! It will be so fun to look back on these someday, and hear his OWN answers too as he gets older. :)

  9. ahh love it! Love toddler interviews. I asked Aria random questions this morning, and she gave me some grunts. =)

  10. I really love this idea. I think after 2 I am going to use something like this for his updates. I love all the favorites! Myles' favorite game is destruct-o too! So much fun for them.. but hey it keeps them happy right :) I love reading about how different they are, but how they are also similar too!

  11. This is such a cute idea! Our boys are so similar (except Marcus is not a good eater like Mason), from the books read, to Mickey Mouse, to being outside, to toe nail clipping! I bet they would get along great if we got them together. :)


I love your comments and I love connecting with my readers! I respond back via email so please make sure that your email is connected to your profile. Thanks for stopping by :)
