16 months old!

Our little dude is 16 months old…I say it every month…so crazy, he is growing so fast!  He is definitely a little man now, a little toddler, a little dude.
–He is starting to finally talk, a lot more!  He had tubes put in at the beginning of the month after dealing with 3 months of chronic ear infections and fluid filled ears.  Finally no more ear pulling and muffled hearing.  Every day he is saying a new work.  And starting to mock Payton with it!  Payton was being silly and fell on the ground, started whining and saying “ouch, ouch, ouch, ouchie!” and right away Miles looked at her and in a mocking whiny voice said “oooouchie”.  She stopped whining immediately after that!
–He is mastering the spoon, he can eat most of his oatmeal now with 80% of it making it into his mouth!
–He still hates just about all fruits and veggies.  Grrrrr.  Still a meat and carb eater. –Sleeping 11 hours at night with a 2 hour nap.
–Sob, sob, sob…just about fully weaned from nursing.  I think this is harder on Mama than Miles.  A bit sad…a baby no more.
–Still running, climbing, and destroying everything.  Going through the awful phase of hair pulling and biting…no fun.
–Loves stacking blocks, throwing balls, digging in dirt, splashing in water, reading books, and singing and dancing. SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

Off to the Farm We Go!

Took the kiddos to Fox Hollow Farm today.  Was an exhausting three hours but oh so fun!  Last year when we went Payton was afraid of all the animals and wanted nothing to do with them…this time she had a blast!  Wanted to pet them all!  It was Miles that wanted nothing to do with the animals.  Cried around most of them…except for the chickens.  He ran around with those chickens like he was one of them…yelling “bawk bawk bawk!”.  Had a little picnic by the stream and ended at the play houses…one of their favorite parts!

Last day of Preschool: Monkey Class

I think I am in a bit of denial and shock that this is the last day of Preschool.  We have a cute independent stubborn little 3.5 year old.  I am so thrilled that she is moving on to bigger and better things but a piece of me is mourning the loss of my little baby.  She is growing so fast, I want things to just slow down for a bit.  It feels like we are always moving in fast-forward mode, getting here to there, hurry hurry hurry.  I think this summer we need to hit pause and slow it down for a bit.  I am quite sad that another year of Preschool is done…but also quite excited to spend a warm sunny summer with my two amazing toddlers.

15 Months Old

Our little cutie is 15 months old!  Goings on this past month:
–A whopping 28.5 pounds!
–He is going to eat us out of house and home.  This little boy loves to eat eat eat.  He loves: meat, meat, meat, bananas, strawberries, yogurt, quesadillas, PB sandwiches, lasagna, Cheerios, and meat.  As soon as you say it’s time to eat, he literally runs over to his high chair and screams until you put him in, and then screams until you put food in front of him.  This kid is serious about his food, no jokes here.
–He is a tornado, a destructor, he throws, slams things, pushes things over, climbs, tries to throw himself over the couch, drags furniture around, and he can open doors…he is a rough and tumble little boy…he keeps us on our toes.
–Nicknames: little dude, destructor, and little chubber.
–He loves shoes and trying to put them on, loves brushing his own teeth, and combing his own hair.
–He loves balls, books and reading, playing tea party, always carrying around a play bowl and spoon, playing outside, loves playing in the sprinkler and kiddie pool, and loves being chased around, especially by Payton.  He loves anything with Payton!
–He has the cutest little dance…now he runs his feet in place up and down as fast as his little legs will let him.
–Starting to learn body parts…belly button, feet, toes, eyes, and nose.
–Still only has 4 teeth on top and 3 teeth on bottom…but looks like tooth #4 on the bottoms and a couple molars will be coming through soon.
–Sleeps from 8pm to 7-8am and takes 1 nap a day: 2pm-4ish pm.

So lucky to have such a fun little guy…

A Springy Beachy Day

It seems as if Spring in Seattle started a month ago…so warm and gorgeous out.  Then we get days like today thrown in, cool and gray.  We took a day at the beach to dig and play in the sand a couple weeks ago.  The kids had a blast.  I assumed the water would be too cold so didn’t pack any swimsuits…well I was wrong, way wrong.  All the kids wanted to do was splash in the water!  So they splashed, they got wet, they had a blast.  So looking forward to the warm days ahead!
