How did this happen so quickly? He is indeed two. On the eve of his birthday, we had a stand-off occur at breakfast. Eli would not finish his oatmeal, still insisting upon having some jelly english muffin. Art and I would encourage his with words like, "just two more bites and you can have your muffin." This went on for a good 20 minutes. Eli would not budge - his bottom lip protruding, he stood his ground, no oatmeal were to pass his lips. He's been working up to this stamina for a while now but this was a remarkable sign of being two right around the corner. Finally, I took a eenie, teenie, weenie piece of my muffin and put it in his mouth. He immediately grabbed his spoon and shoveled in the required amount and demanded his muffin. whew....what's to come.
