19 Months Old!

19 months old and a full blow toddler BOY. Into everything, HIGH energy, battles with mommy, soaking everything in, trying to be independent, FUNNY little guy. This stage is both exhausting and adoring. I coudln't imagine what my life would be like without my ginger haired little boy though! I love him to the moon and back, always and forever. :o)

  • You weigh 26 lbs
  • You've just moved into 24 month clothes as the 18 month shirts are getting a little short on you
  • You wear size 6/7 shoes. BIG feeet!
  • You have four top teeth and four bottom and just had a molar in the back pop through this week.
  • You're toddler tantrums have been fun lately. (not!)
  • You have been going through another "mommy" phase where you need me ALL the time, but I think we might be coming out of that a little. (You made it through nursery at church without crying last week~ that's a start!)
  • When you're not trying to get what "you want" and telling the whole world about it you are as sweet as can be
  • You have an amazing amount of energy and love to laugh and run around
  • You have an obsession with all things tools and love to fix things
  • You also have an obsession with cars and are constantly wanting to drive 
  • You're favorite movie (which we watch daily) is Barnyard
  • You also like Mator's Tales, Bo on the Go, and Madagascar
  • You love to read books
  • Binky's and Blankey's are still your favorite comfort items
  • You drink milk 3 times a day... yes I still let you in a bottle. Who cares! :o)
  • You LOVE to brush your teeth
  • You have to help me do everything lately- cook, clean, do laundry. Such a big helper.
  • Dancing is a favorite activity.
  • You take 1-2 naps a day depending on when you wake up in the morning. If its 8:00 or later you can make it until 1:30 without a nap and then will sleep for about 2 hours. If you wake up before 8, then you'll take an hour or an hour and a half nap at 10:30, then another hour and a half to two hour nap at 2:30. Mommy LOVES this.
  • Your bedtime is still at 8:30 pm.
  • You're still a great eater. You love everything.
  • Candy is an obsession. You wake up asking for it. Ha!
  • You're babbling and talking constantly now! Waiting for the words and little sentences to start forming soon.
  • So far you can say these distinguishable words: mama, dada, papa, gaga (grandma), Gah (Duke), caca (candy), baba (bottle), vroom, boom, ball (ball-ball), Nala, Mow-mow (mower), Cracker, Nana (banana), Tractor, bye bye, hot-- i feel like I'm forgetting some though. 
  • You make a ton of animal noises
  • You know most of your body parts and can point to them when asked
  • You make a fort daily with all the blankets and pillows you can find
  • You still try sometimes to use the potty, but we arent really pushing that issue too much yet

Toddler Boys and Sleepover Fun!

Oh these two little boys are something else!
 Such fun, SUCH a handful, such love for them. They had a sleepover this week and had lots of fun together. They don't always see "eye to eye", but the always enjoy seeing each other and are sad when its time to go.  
It will be fun to watch them grow up together and see the boys and men they will become!
