Wow buddy, I can’t believe you’re 18 months old! I mean, how has it been a year and a half already since you were born?!? Time is sure ticking away fast. I know Dad is being a little over-dramatic, but I can’t help it as I watch you grow before my very eyes. Ok ok, onto what we came here for…..
Well, this month was a marked improvement over last moth. While you’re still having some “attitude issues,” you were in a far better mood overall. We embarked on our first family road trip, and while your Mom and I were really nervous about how you would be in a car for 8+ hours a day, you completely surprised both of us by being a complete stud. Heck, you did better than Mom and Dad; well, at least better than Dad who lost his cool a few times with idiot drivers.
Learning, Leaning, Learning:
We spent a good deal of time at several children’s museums on our road trip. Your Mom and I are quickly learning these places are great for pit stops along the way, and it gives you something to do to burn up some of that energy. Plus, you really seem to enjoy learning and playing.
You’ve learned a few new words this month. While “NO!!” is still your favorite thing to say, you’ve started saying words like, “bubble,” “door” and “ball.” You also do the “moooo” sound whenever Mommy asks you what a cow says; and it’s over the moon adorable. I think your most precious skill this month, is the refined kiss you give us now. No more open mouth, sloppy kisses against our face. Now, they are pursed lips kisses, and they’re cute.
Moments To Remember:
This, buddy, will probably be the bulk of this blog. because there was so many awesome memories from this past month. As usual, you spent some good ole QT with your #1 fan, Aunty J!
On The Menu:
Chicken noodle soup was still the big winner this month. Although, you did change it up a bit when you preferred eating hot dogs while they were in your soup. Mom and I just called it Hot Dog Noddle Soup. Hey, whatever gets you to eat I guess.
We also discovered a new treat you just happen to be nuts about……
…..and that treat is
As I said earlier, you really love the water now. So much so that Daddy can’t even water the plants without you getting all soaked. Something tells me you’re going to be a “run through the sprinklers” kind of kid too.
Nothing new this month. You still hate being told “NO!” by us, even though you say it repeatedly to us.
Well buddy, we had a great time on our trip. You were such a good boy. Mom and Dad really needed this vacation, and you certainly made it enjoyable.
It was a pretty awesome month with you kiddo. I still can’t believe you are only 6 months away from being 2 years old. If 18 months went by this fast, I feel like 6 more months are going to go by in a blink of an eye. But at least, while the time is flying by, it has always been packed full of some kind of fun or adventure. You certainly do keep us on our toes kiddo….
