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!

14 Months Old

Our little dude is 14 months old. I can’t believe how fast time is flying. This is what has been going on with our little stinker this past month:
**Little dude is a big dude, weighing in at 28 pounds…that is the 98th percentile. Big ball of love.
**He runs, spins, climbs, dives, and never stops moving. Little stinker take off running away from us when he has something he knows he’s not supposed to…and he’s fast! It’s also great times (meaning we can get nothing done) now that he can climb onto the couch, stand, and try to dive head first over the back.
**He loves meat. Such a boy. Pulled pork, beef, chicken, and even non-meat that looks like meat…veggie burgers. He absolutely loves yogurt, that and lasagna are his all time favorite. Can’t get the kids to eat a fruit or veggie unless it’s pureed and doesn’t taste like a veggie.
**He is obsessed with balloons and balls. He loves a tea party, animals, and vrooming cars across the floor.
**He is such a cute dancer…just squats up and down.
**He talks so much…never stops babbling. In his own way he can say: Mama, Dada, balloon (badu), ball, baby, belly button (bay boo), bush for brush teeth (brshh), peek a boo (pik a boo!), shoes (shzzzz), duck (da), Baa Baa black sheep (baa baa bashee), open (opa), bite, and a zillion animal sounds.
**Takes 1 nap a day (2 hours) and sleeping 11-12 hours a night. Still nursing 3 times a day…but self weaning, sob sob.
**Still hates the car seat and stroller…lots of crying.
**Starting that phase of throwing himself on the floor tantrums when he doesn’t get what he wants. Yay. I think part of that is the fact that he has had bilateral ear infections for 2 months straight now but I knew that phase was coming sooner rather than later. Yay yay.
**Loves his sister. Loves to play, wrestle, laugh, and of course annoy her. Typical, right?!

Halfway to 4

Today we officially have a 3 and a half-year old.  Can’t believe our sweet little stinker is on her way to 4 years old.  The third year has definitely been a challenge, she is strong-willed, stubborn, and sassy.  She is one strong little lady.  Happy half birthday Payton-pie!

Payton in one of her favorite dresses, it is one of the rare occasions that she actually asked me to take pictures of her, which lasted about one whole minute, ha.  …and her plethora of facial expressions in that one minute time frame.  Little ham.  =)
