Not-So-Bitty Man

Bitty had his 30 month well-baby check today. Bitty has always been, well, Bitty in size. Hence the nickname. At birth he was in the 10% for weight and just under 50% for height. By his first birthday he was still 10% for weight but had dropped to 10% for height. At two he was up to 25% for both height and weight.

Today, at 2 1/2, he is just over 50% for both height and weight! I knew he had gone through a serious growth spurt by how quickly he grew out of his summer clothes. But I also knew that most toddlers have a growth spurt around age 2. So I was pleasantly surprised to learn that my Bitty Man is, technically, no longer Bitty.

And I'm proud to brag that the doctor pronounced Bitty, "Off the charts, developmentally... Well exceeding all expectations for a 30 month old." Best of all, Bitty did not even flinch when the nurse gave him a 'pokey-pokey,' exclaiming, "That was fun!" as we left the examination room.

But no matter how physically average or developmentally off the charts he is, he'll always be my Bitty Man.

It's Snowing in Bitty's World!

Well, on the computer anyway:

Turkey Pinecone Craft

Amazing what can be done with a pine cone, construction paper and glitter! I don't know who had more fun doing this art project, Bitty and his 5 playgroup friends or the Mommies!

Pinecone Turkeys
1 Pinecone
Construction Paper
Acorn OR Brown Pom-Pom
Small Red Pom-Pom
Pipe Cleaners

Trace your child's hands on the construction paper and cut them out. These are the 'feathers'. Let your child go nuts painting/coloring/glittering the 'feathers' and pine cone. Attach the 'feathers' to the pine cone using glue. The brown pom-pom (or acorn if you have one) becomes the 'face', the red pom-pom the 'waddle', pipecleaners for beak and legs and eyes for, well, eyes.

Happy Half Birthday, Bitty Man!

Bitty is officially 2-and-a-half years old. He is thrilled with his newfound status... although he's still expecting a cake and presents to appear sometime today. I wonder if a muffin and Matchbox car will suffice?

Help Support My Pumpkin Spice Latte Habit!

I know a lot of you have ordered jewelry from this website. I've ordered several pieces and have been thrilled with the quality -- not to mention the price! If you place an order after clicking through my link (below and in my sidebar) I'll earn some extra Starbucks money!

For the 20+ people who check this sight daily.

Mama is too emotionally drained from last night's Redskins victory over the Iggles to compose anything witty or even informative for a Blog entry... so here's a cute picture to tie you Bitty Fans over until my creative juices are flowing again! Posted by Picasa
