24 months

I have totally been slacking on keeping up with your updates. But I guess that is what happens when you have a 2 year old.

What have you been up to lately?

- You are two! So you are definitely talking non-stop. I honestly can not even keep track of all of the words that you can say. You know the entire Alphabet. W is my favorite letter to hear you say. You can count to 10 as well. You can identify objects, people, animals, and much more.

- You can climb just about anything. The kitchen counters, the slide at the park from bottom to top, every baby gate that we own, and pretty much anything else if given the opportunity.

- You are turning into an amazing little swimmer. For having a Mama who is 26 and can't swim, I am shocked with how quickly you are learning!

- I suspect that you are most definitely going to be quite the athlete when you get older. You love Basketball, Baseball, Football and any sport that you are introduced to.

- As well as sports you are also pretty good with the drums. You love to pull up your little chair and sit in front of your drum set and play away.

I hope that I can keep up with everything that you are doing. This blog is meant for you. I wanted a way to keep track of everything that you are learning and doing. It is so easy to forget the little things sometimes.

17 months

17 months already! I have been looking back at all the postings that I have done every month and I am so thankful that I documented every wonderful thing that you have done. It is so hard to remember when and where you started doing some of the crazy, fun and amazing new things that you learn everyday.

What have you been up to this month.

- Talking! You can say so many new words now, it is crazy. Your favorite is Apple. Cat will have to be number 2 on the list. You can also say Cow, Mama, Dada, hi, hey, one, toes, uh oh, whoa, ouch, bye, no, Caillou, all done but it sounds more like "alt an" and baby. You also say " a butter" which is short for Butterfly. There are more but those are the ones that are standing out right now.

- You can sign like a pro now. Good, all done, more and food are your most commonly used signs. We are working on Toilet, Mama and Dada at the moment.

-You know your body parts as well. You can point out your eyes, ears and toes so far.

- Speaking of toilet, you are already using the potty like a big boy. I am soo thrilled and proud by how well you are catching on. I have no set goal as to when I hope to have you totally potty trained though.

- You are starting to fall asleep on your own now. You no longer need me to sway you anymore... Where has my little baby gone?

- I think what is most exciting to me is that you are able to come up to me and sign "food" when you are hungry. The fact that you can now REALLY communicate with me like a big boy is soo amazing. I no longer have to guess what you want or need because you can tell me yourself now.

I am a little late on this update. Just three weeks from now you will be 18 months old. Like I said  before, where has my little baby gone!

16 months old

Time is flying and honestly I can't keep up with it or with you. You are growing so quickly! What have you been up to this month?

- Talking non stop. I still don't know what you are saying most of the time. Although you have learned how to say Caillou. 

- You love to give kisses. It is amazing to wake up to your little face every morning with your lips puckered waiting to give Mommy and Daddy kisses. 

- It's officially pool time and you love the water! Your water table and kiddie pool are a life saver!

- Circles! You love to spin in circles over and over again. 

- You refuse to wear any hat that I put on your head but you love to put on Daddy's hat. You put it over your face and bump into walls all day long.

- You have 9 teeth that are fully out and 7 that are poking their way through.

I love every moment with you and I am so excited to see what you are doing next month.

15 months old

I have to admit I have been a little behind on your updates and I totally forgot to even do a 14 month old update on you. So lets get this started...

- No no no no no! I think you have found a favorite word. You also know how to say hi, hey, what, Mama, Dada, baby, water, one and uh oh.

- You love when we count your toes and you can now point to your toes and say one.

- You love to dance. Cutest thing ever!

- Everywhere we go you have to get a new ball. Footballs, basketballs and bouncy balls have taken over our home. You can even point out every ball in your books when I ask you to.

-You love broccoli, green beans, carrots, tomatoes, peas and corn. Pretty much any and every veggie I have given you to eat you like.

- Self feeding with a spoon and fork is getting a lot better and you love to drink from a straw.

- We have slowly started to introduce the potty to you. I hope that by the time that you are 24 months you will know how to go potty like a big boy!

- You can give kisses and pucker your lips. My absolute favorite.

- You are becoming more cuddly. You like to lay on us while you are relaxing and watching Caillou!

- You love going on afternoon walks with Mommy and Daddy.

I know that I am forgetting so much. You change so much everyday that it's so hard to keep up with all the new and wonderful things that you are learning to do. The one thing that will never change though is how much we love you.

Paper Mama: Family

I love this photo. There is nothing sweeter than witnessing your baby see the ocean for the first time. Loved our time in California. Can't wait to go back.

 Love my boys.

Photo bloopers

I probably have taken over 5000 photos of Oliver since he was born. This one tops the list of my favorites. It was taken on Christmas last year and I think that it's a classic. Definitely one that I will be pulling out 15 years from now and showing all the girls. I love the unbutton jeans.

Linking up with Growing up Geeky for TAT topic: Photo bloopers.
