My baby boy is almost 2 1/2 and by the time he reaches that milestone he will have gained the new title of big brother.

But before that happens I wanted capture him and remember him at this stage.

Everyone in our family would agree Kolter is the ham of the fam. He loves to be funny and the center of attention. When making new friends he will often ask them if they think he is funny. When "performing" he will wait until all eyes are on him and  he will expect applause.

He has a love for all things Superman. He is rarely without his Superman cape. And recently he insists on wearing his Superman shirt. He had 1 Superman shirt and after 3 days/nights of use I insisted he must take it off to be washed. He couldn't bear the thought so I suggested we use some of his Christmas money to purchase another Superman shirt and he was thrilled with this idea. So, we visited Target that day and he very carefully picked out his new shirt and he couldn't be more proud!

He has very clear speech and people are always commenting about how well he talks. He doesn't always speak in sentences, but the words he uses are very clear. My favorites are Superman, banana, smoothie and Koko. While he can say all of our names with ease he will not say his proper name, he always calls himself Koko.

Kolter is our eater! He will eat pretty much anything including things Mom and Dad won't touch (i.e. ranch, kohlrabi, etc.). His favorite is, hands down, applesauce! He would eat it all day, everyday. He is a big snacker and would prefer snacking to eating actual meals.

He has a big imagination. You can often find him playing superheros or Thundercats. If you ask him who he is 99% of the time he will say "I'm Superman!" and then jet off to save someone.

He is a fish and is fearless around water.

He still loves to play with balls and is not scared to play with the bigger kids. He loves t-ball, soccer, football and basketball.

He is quite charming and will often tell me or Nora we look beautiful. He also flashes that smile and dimple and often melts the hearts of strangers. He can be very loving doling out hugs and kisses to all.

He is a busy boy! He does not sit for long and doesn't love books or puzzles because they just aren't active enough. Though he will read a book or 2 and he prefers books about farms.

He loves to be outside.

He loves babies…hopefully that bodes well for his future…that baby brother/sister is arriving soon!

He is not patient. He does not like to wait and will let you know it.

He is fully potty trained. As long as we are in our routine or mommy is around he does great. When we put him in a new or unusual situation he may have an accident, but generally he does very well.

He loves to wrestle!

He is very social and rarely shy.

He still loves cows.

His favorite show is Paw Patrol.

He doesn't have a whole lot of interest in academic pursuits ;) but I know he catches on pretty easily because he knows most of his colors and can count to 10 even though we've never sat down and taught him these concepts.

His best friend is Calvary or Cal Cal and they are like 2 peas in a pod.

He loves to have his picture taken.

His favorite color is green.

He is often a hot mess and doesn't mind getting his hands (or feet, face, you name it) dirty.

He is usually our early riser around 6 or 6:30 am and he generally takes a 2 hour nap in the afternoon.

We love our Kolter Howard! I can't wait to see how he changes and grows as moves into the big brother role!
