23 Months

Eli Wesson,

You are one energetic little man.  You are going full force from the minute your feet hit the floor but thankfully that is still only when momma comes to rescue you from the crib.  You have yet to figure out that you can climb out even though you have been tall enough for quite a long time.  Your dad and I are very thankful for that. 

*You're on a very good, consistent schedule for the first time in your life.  You wake up at 9, nap for 2 hours in the afternoon and hit the hay at 10:30 pm.  It is perfect, we love that you're still a night owl.

*You love morning Bible time but only if you get to hold one of our books.  Soon you'll be reading them to me.

*Your favorite toy by FAR is moms IPAD.  But no matter what time of day or what you're doing you would always rather be outside, and are willing to give up the IPAD for outside time.

*Your vocabulary is expanding like crazy....FACE and NOSE are our favorites because you pronounce them so sweetly.  Your have also added pretty much every animal...although you still think that cows are called moos!  You love Noahs ark and love to match up all the animals...two by two.

*Your new obsession is horse racing and could spend hours watching horses run around the track with spoiler alert we are taking you to the tracks for your birthday.

*You're a VERY good eater for your dad  but will hardly eat anything all day when you're home with mom.  The only thing I can still count on you to put down in bulk is "pleases"or fruit snacks.

*You're tough as nails.  You took your first hard spill the other day on gravel and skinned up both legs and elbows but didnt even bat an eye. 

*You think you're much bigger than you are and much prefer playing with the older kids.  In fact you got kicked out of your one year old Sunday School class a month early because they said..."He's good but rough.  I think he can handle himself in with the 2 years olds".  Guess we're moving on...

*You finally started saying "Love you".  Although it is not consistent we still love when we hear it!

*You throw EVERYTHING in the pool no matter how many times Dad and I tell you NO.

*You prefer riding in Dads truck to moms car because its fun to have boy time!

*Favorite outfit is unfortunately your Halloween pants.  You call them "britches" and ask for them every time you see them.  You also LOVE boots and most times just go to your room and come out wearing your rain boots.  You seem to think they go with EVERY outfit.  Although they do not, I let this slide since you're one.  But we are not giving on the Halloween pants...those are not allowed in public. 

*Your best friends are probably Brayden and Van but will gladly hang out with any cute girl you can find.

*You're in the phase of not sharing...especially when it comes to balls, which hopefully we can break you of quickly.

Other than that you still have blue eyes and VERY blonde hair and the cutest smile on the planet.  You bring us so much laughter and are definitely the life of the party...especially if it is a dance party.  We love you more than words can say.  Happy 23 Months Bubba.

(Not the greatest pictures because it was so bright...will retake soon!)
