18 Months

I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone!  Wasn't I JUST peeing on Mama every time she tried to change my diaper?  Or learning to drag myself across the floor to get to something?

It's been a big month for me!  I started walking all on my own!  (Mama says it's about bloody time!)  I liked holding Mama's hand to walk for ages, but then Mama got sick and was away for a while and I had to give in and do it myself.

While she was gone I also started signing please - no one but Mama understood my signals, so I had to figure out a way to tell Daddy, Nana, and Grandpa what I wanted.  My new way to do that is to use the "more sign" with my right hand and use it to point at what I want and say "see?".  All.  Day.  Long.  And oh, boy do I like to come up with imaginative ways to say "no!"  I also started signing "all done" for meals, but sometimes, just for kicks, I throw my uneaten food on the floor.  Haha on them!

Mama and Daddy don't like it much, but when I don't get what I want I scream and cry and roll around on the floor.  It's gotta work one of these times, right?

They call me Destructo Boy.  I don't really understand why.  Isn't it normal to dump all toy buckets, legos, kitchen implements, etc onto the floor and move them around the house?  It's funny as heck when Mama can't find a measuring cup.  Teehee.

Mama calls me Dennis The Menace. I have no fear. I have a big scrape on my arm, scratches on my face and head...nothing stops me. Mama is convinced there will be an emergency room trip any day now.

Speaking of doctors...Daddy was finally able to get me in for my 15 month appointment - 2 months late.  The nurse gave me some shots (yuck!) and told Daddy I weigh 30lbs and am 32" tall.  That's half as tall as Mama is!  I am such a BIG BOY!!\

Speaking of Mama, she shaved her head!  What is up with that?  Now I have longer hair than she does!

Below you'll see some of what I've been up to this month!

That's me and CJ destroying Mama's living room.

We finger painted for the first time!  Okay, I spread paint all over myself
and then Mama threw me in the pool.

We went to a park for the first time since I learned to
walk!  It was awesome!!!!

See?  That's my new friend Triceratops.

And then I climbed.  Holy moly, a wheel that I can spin to my heart's content!
Mama tried to leave, said bye bye and everything.  I waved bye and blew her
kisses.  I know where my loyalties lie.
Sorry this photo is so dark, but it was dark when Mama
took it.  Because I'm so cool that I wear my sunglasses
at night.  And drool milk.

Told you she shaved her head.  Crazy lady.

She never learns.  DO NOT LET ME FEED MYSELF

For that matter, don't let me out of the bathroom after
bath time without a diaper on.  Because good luck getting me
to hold still once you let me go.  HAHAHAHAHA.

So here I am, 18 months old.  A year and a half.  Mama can't quite believe it either.


  1. He is one of the cutest kids ever. Seriously! What a sweetheart.

  2. Could he be any cuter? Nope. Awesome little dude you have there!

  3. What an incredible little man! I love his stories. And you look gorgeous! Have been thinking about you a lot. Much love your ways!

  4. 18 months?! HOW can that be? He's getting so big and grown up, and he has the cutest expressions. :) I hope you're doing well. You're always in my thoughts. <3

  5. Happy 18 months! It does seem like just yesterday that he was born, and my little dude was getting mixed up in a little dish. Incredible.

    btw - I LOVE the shaved head - have always wanted to shave mine, but never had the guts.


Whip me, beat me, take away my charge card. Or just leave a comment. Whichever works best for you :)
