19 months and counting

Little Man turned 19 months old yesterday. I can’t figure out where the time is going, but it’s going by fast. A few more months and we’ll be busting down the door of having a two year old. This past month has brought about a lot of change for our family, and even more so for Little Man. At 19 months:

  • You’ve said goodbye to your Daddy for an extended period of time, and handled the separation with flying colors.
  • You’ve talked on a webcam…many times.
  • You’ve learned to climb-and very, very well.
  • You’ve finally started to play with something besides baseballs, basketballs, and footballs. Suddenly trucks and tractors are of big interest and you’ve spent a lot of time the past few weeks pushing them around the house and the yard.
  • You rode your very first John Deere Tractor with PawPaw.
  • You’re vocabulary is increasing by the day. New words include “baby, hot, down, up, mommy, cup, duck, dog, monkey {mo-ke},” among others that I can’t keep track of.
  • You are still eating pretty much everything, though I’m waiting for the day when you won’t eat what I give you.
  • You seem to have realized that mommy is always going to have the camera and always going to take your picture. So you may as well grin and pose.  :)
  • You’re still sleeping 10-12 hours a night.
  • And you’re still up bright and early at 7:30, every morning {I’m going to remind you of this torture when you’re a teenager.}
  • You made your first trip to God’s Country {Tuscaloosa, Alabama…home of the Alabama Crimson Tide Football Team…hello? LOL} and met your Aunt Tootie and Uncle Justin for the very first time.
  • You can identify your tummy-along with everyone else's, your head, your nose and your toes. Still working on ears, eyes and mouth.
  • You can somewhat brush your own teeth. You have the concept down really well. And even know how to spit. LOL
  • You know how to put your clothes on and when to sit down for me to put your shoes on.
  • You are very, very, very detail oriented. Moreso than your mommy, which is nuts. You pay attention to all kinds of tiny things and like to figure out how things work.
  • You prefer not to sit in a high chair at a restaurant until the food arrives.
  • You went to the beach and loved it. The sand, the water, everything. You even tried to swim on your own some and do great with your floaties.  
  • You are a pro at drinking from a straw. Now if you could just grasp the concept that you don’t have to turn a drink with a straw up in the air to get the liquid to come out.
  • You like to hold your fork while you eat. You generally pick the food up with your fingers, place it on the fork and then put it in your mouth.  :)
  • You are still just as sweet, just as funny and just as much of a blessing as you were the day that we brought you home. You’re turning into a bit of a mama’s boy while Daddy is away, and I don’t mind at all. Because I know when Daddy returns, you’ll be right back to being his little sidekick. :)
