You're 20 months year and growing up so quickly. Sometimes it amazes me how smart you are. This month you figured out you can turn off the lights in the house so you run around behind me turning them all off. Too bad you're not quite tall enough to turn them back on! You still weigh under 30 lbs because you're going 100mph from the minute your feet hit the floor. The first words out of your mouth every morning are ball ball, shoot shoot. We have basketball goals all over the house and you're obsessed!! You know a lot of words and constantly remind us what you know. Most times you'll use every word you know in a sentence. You'll say, Mommy, Daddy, Puppy, Dog, Ball, Outside, Shoe, Sock, Birdie...". If we tell you no to something that you want you immediately follow it up with something else. So if you ask to play "birdie" (angry birds) and here no you say "outside?" You're a clever little munchkin I'll give you that. You like to push the limits and are always trying to play with the electronics that you have been repedetly told not to touch. You sleep about 10 hours a night but fight all the way down. You're very sweet and love to give hugs and sugars, at least to your dad. And prefer to not go to sleep at night until you have gotten a fist bump from dad. You met your new cousin Audri this month and did amazing with her. You were very curious and wanted to love on her but you're not quite aware of your own strength. You had a blast at Christmas but are so particular about getting off every piece of paper that it took hours to open all your gifts. You're starting to learn how to color better, but still break all the crayons :(! Mostly you just want to play ball and need mom or dad to play with you, you dont like to do much on your own yet. You absolutely HATE santa and anything healthy to eat. Most meals take an hour of just sitting there until you decide you're ready to eat. You go through about a bottle of ketchup a month (may be an exaggeration) because you have to "dip" everything. You call Rocky, Bot-T, dont know why but its pretty stinking cute. You eat Welch's Fruity Snacks like they're going out of style, and still love a ton of milk. Still no juice for you yet...yeah healthy teeth!! You flew 2 more times this month and even got your own ticket on one...you're growing up quickly.
You're the cutest little man around and we love you very much!!
Well you are clearly now old enough to rip your numbers right off your shirt so this month we didnt even attach, I just had you hold it. You're 19 months old and the big 2 years is closing in on us quickly. You are seriously the funniest toddler I have ever met, I may be biased!
You still love our puppy very much and chase him around more than he would like. You're happy all the time except bed time. You still hate to sleep. I have a feeling this will be something that will never change. You have officially reached the 3 foot mark and are still growing like a week...not sure how long that convertible bed we invested in will last. You never listen to me, and you get away with EVERYTHING. Your down however has complete control and can simply look your way to get you to behave. However, your quick attitude corrections usually have him running for the door to hide his laughter. You love to give kisses and are still a HUGE flirt. You've loved the ladies from the get go, and still do. You are everyones favorite at the gym and walk around the place after moms work out high fiving and waving hello all the people. You can now go down the "BIG" slides by yourself at the park, but it scared me to death because you're fearless. You weigh about 28 lbs and are wearing 18-24 month clothes right on cue, but your legs are really long so I do my best to not put you in high waters. Balls are still your favorite toy and all day everyday you ask me if you can go "outside, outside". Hopefully it warms up soon so we can get out of the house again. We are excited to celebrate your second Christmas and look forward to the last few months of you being one. Love you.
