Tanner is 3!!
As I sit here reflecting on how much I love Tanner, my heart is filled with emotion! He has changed me so much, and I think I've learned more from him than I could ever teach him!
Tanner is now 3 and I really wonder where all the time has gone! He is 39 inches tall and weighs approximately 35lbs. He is getting so big and getting so independent. He is usually smiling and has the best personality ever! He loves to tease, sing, and talk. When he was little I remember saying one time, "I can't wait until he can talk". Well, he talks now and he talks a lot! There are times now I wish I would have never said that! :) Tanner knows his ABC's, and can count to 13. Why 13 I don't know... but he's so cute about it. He gets to 13 and then he pauses and yells 20!! He knows 7 colors and all the simple shapes. He will be starting preschool in January, and I'm so excited for him!
His favorite toys currently are Thomas the train engines. I was able to find some cheap off of craig's list. Best purchase ever! He plays with those trains nonstop. His favorite food is chicken nuggets with ranch & macaroni and cheese. He eats all the typical toddler finger foods. His favorite snack is chips and dip. He is a dipper.... if the food is dip-able, he will dip it! He tells me all the time that he is a "Ranch Boy". I think he's just a silly boy!
I found this poem online, and it reminded me so much of Tanner......
