Nineteen Months Old

Monday, September 20, 2010

What! Another month gone by? Yep! You’re nineteen months old now, sweet boy! You are absolutely funnier than ever and make us smile all. the. time!image You love to read, and your favorite books right now are the Llama Llama books. We love to read them with you, but you’ve started to want to read alone-you tell us, “My turn!”, read a little bit, and then clap and say, “Yeah, Jack!”. When it’s our turn, we read the first part of the line and then you finish it. It’s the cutest thing-I’m going to try to get it on video soon. In Llama Llama Misses Mama, you always get really excited when Mama comes back-most of the time you give her a kiss!image You’re still a good eater and sometimes surprise us with how much you eat. We had a bit of a struggle this month with you throwing your food when you’re finished, but we’ve turned a corner on that. You now tell us you’re “all done” and hand us your plate-good job, buddy! You just started eating cold cereal with milk and your spoon and that just amazes me.image You have twelve teeth now and have really done great with teething. You don’t seem to mind when they pop through at all. You dropped your morning nap this past month and now take just one after lunch. You’ve been a great sleeper from the very beginning, and we’re hoping that’s something you’ll teach your little brother! Bedtime is still 7:30 and you wake up at 7:00 or 7:30 in the morning. You are all over your crib when you sleep, so I’m really wondering how the big boy bed is going to go. imageimageYou say SO much right now, and we have a great time listening! Some of my new favorites are:
* Clean up, clean up, everybody (the first part of the Clean Up song)
* Jack, silly!
* Ok!
* Deal!
* Bye, bye! Soon! (Bye, bye! See you soon!)
* Bible
* Bird? Daddy got it. Yeah Daddy!
* Beep beep! (When you’re trying to get around or by something/someone)
* Truck, Bus, Car and Airplane (and pointing at them as he sees them)
* Night, night! (really sing-songy)
* Go? (Where did he/it go-with a look of total concern on his face!)
…and on and on!imageYou LOVE to hide-behind things, around corners, behind your hands-and have us try to find you. I love it when I ask if anyone’s seen Jack and you respond “no” from your hiding place! I also love it when you and I are hiding from daddy and you whisper, “where’d he go?” basically begging to be found!image And speaking of daddy, you. LOVE. him!! He’s the one that made you smile so big for these pictures! You pretty much smile like this whenever you spot him-me too! Boy, does that face melt my heart!! image He had to get on you the other night for throwing your food (and your plate!), and you were devastated! You’re such a people pleaser and we could tell that you knew what you did was wrong. It was really sad for us to see you so upset, but I’m glad you’re learning that your actions have consequences and you’re learning from them. You guys ended up snuggling to dry your tears and you were back to our happy boy before too long. imageYou’re such a fun, sweet little boy! Daddy and I are so thankful that you’re ours and that we get to snuggle that sweet face each day! You’re a blessing, little one! I can’t believe you’re closer to two than to one!!
We love you!
Daddy and Mommy
