Little singin' Beck :)

Beck has been quite the little singer lately! It is so adorable. And he's pretty quick, too. We can teach him a song (a simple one) in a day or so, and he'll fill in the blanks back to us. But I've been trying to stretch his skills more and make him do more than just filling in the blanks. And it's worked! Thanks to me and Lindsay's efforts the last couple of days, he now has memorized his first little song! Sure, it's a little run together and not on pitch yet (although he will sing on pitch when just filling in the blank), but it sure is adorable! And still pretty good for his age, I think! Now I just need to be a better mom and do this more often. :)

Oh, and the translation/lyrics of the first song:
I am like a star shining brightly, shining for the whole world to see.
I can do and say happy things each day, for I know Heavenly Father loves me. :)

Hilarious Hide and Seek with Lindsay!

So Beck and Lindsay have been playing hide and seek ever since Beck could walk, and I realized I didn't have it on video! So I set out to capture a typical little round of it but it turned out pretty funny, you just have to watch. ;)

Beck's dump truck excitement

Like most boys, Beck is fascinated, obsessed and easily excited with all things cars, trucks, airplanes and tractors. Here are a few videos for proof!

This is a Christmas present he got from Mamma and Pappa, and this is his favorite thing to do with it... Yes, it gets very annoying after awhile, especially if it's on a loud surface. ;)

Watching the grader go by our house a few months ago. He's more in awe than excited in this video. :)

This is us/him reading one of his favorite books. As you can see, it's been a little destroyed. I had it put away for months, and he found it the other day. And to my surprise, he knew like almost every single vehicle in there!

Beck's 2-year stats

I forgot to include Beck's 2-year stats with his birthday post, but wanted to throw them on here while I'm thinking about it!

Weight: 30 pounds, 70%
Height: 35 inches, 68%
BMI: 17
(The doctor called him "quite trim" at his last appointment, I thought it was funny.)
So he's a healthy, happy little guy!

Oh, and one funny (well, not so much, actually) story from his doctor's appointment:
So, in the rooms at the office they have different themes, with big vinyl decorations. There is a tractor room and an airplane room that I knew of, so when we were getting ready for the appointment and Beck didn't really want to go bye-bye, I told him that there would be tractors or airplanes in his room. He fell for it, and we were out the door. Well, of course the nurse happens to put us in the fish-themed room (even though the other two were empty... wouldn't you put little toddler boys in tractor or airplane rooms?). Beck literally loses it, and starts flipping out that he's in the fish room. Up to this point, I had never seen him throw a tantrum like this before. It was like he was transforming into a "terrible 2"-year-old in the middle of his 2-year appointment. It was pretty ridiculous. The nurse finally offered to switch him to one of the other rooms, so she led us into the tractor room. He was ecstatic for about two minutes, then he started flipping out that he wasn't in the airplane room. While we were waiting for the doctor, I decided I'd let him peek into the airplane room, but right when we opened our door (which was across the hallway from it), the door to the airplane room slammed close, which made this crazy toddler lose it even more. Then he had to get three shots. We were beyond ready to go home! Thankfully, that was still his worst tantrum thus far. :)
