18 months for Bryke

Well hello little man who isn’t so little anymore!! I can’t believe how big you are and just how much fun you are. There are moments when I just sit there and think this mom business is the best job in the whole world. You really are the center of your dad and I’s world and I know big changes are headed our way with your little brother on the way but I promise he won’t be so bad. And that even though he is going to need a lot of our attention there will always. always. always. be time for you, our little bug! You mean the world to us-keep growing strong and letting your amazing little personality shine through- we love you to the moon and back!

Here are your 18 month stats and some things your mama doesn’t want to forget about you :)

Height- 33.5 inches -85%
Weight- 24 lbs 3 oz. -65 %
Head- 51 cm -100 + % ...He’ll grow into it :)

-you can say so many words and understand us really well. You say ball, wa-wa (water), juice, cheese, nana (banana), pretzel (so cute when you say this), choo choo (you really love trains right now), vroom vroom (for all your trucks), lots of animals and their sounds (my favorite is your roar, you just roar randomly now) ya ya (outside), bpa-bpa (grandpa and you say this whenever you see a tractor), grandma, mi mi (Macey or your binky), mommy (absolutely love it when you say this!), daddy, Jill, nenal (Kendal), shoe yew (shoe and you always say the two words for it , go (you love for mommy to say mark get set go and then race), baby, No (this is your {favorite} word) you also sign please and more
-you are spoiled rotten and most nights end up in mommy and daddy’s bed. Your not so much of a bed hog anymore but we need to get tough and kick you back to your own bed little mr!
-I give you your wet diaper and tell you to through it away and you take it right to the diaper genie and flip the handle and everything, you are such a big helper already!
-you love to be outside and say ya ya whenever you want to go out.
-you are a little obsessed with Thomas the Train right now...mommy probably hears choo choo about 500 times a day :)
-you love to sing 3 little monkeys swingin’ in a tree and do the action of mr crocodile quiet as can be snaps that monkey right out that tree.
-you still love to play with pots and pans and have started to pretend to eat what you are cooking
-you absolutely love the swings! you would swing for an hour straight if we let you!
-we tell you to go get your shoes and 9 times out of 10 you bring us back matching shoes you little smarty pants!
-you love to play in the blinds and climb up in the window
-you do the funniest thing with the twins and sometimes daddy. You touch the floor and then rub their head and then the floor and then their heads again. We can’t quite figure this one out yet??
-you have really started to like reading books with us
-your still a pretty great eater but only if we let you feed yourself
-you are the world’s best traveling baby-seriously you hardly ever make a peep in the car unless your singing to yourself :)
-the vacuum and other loud noises still aren’t your favorite
-nursery hasn’t gone over so well you little stinker! You do so well playing with other kids but for some reason you are not a fan of nursery if mommy isn’t in there with you
-you have an arm! Baseball is in your future I just know it :)
-not so sure if you really grasp that you are getting a baby brother. You love babies and always say baby when you see one. You love to kiss and slobber all over mommy’s tummy-you dive bomb baby brother when you give him a kiss. If daddy is around you grab for his head and make sure he gives baby brother a kiss too-thanks for being such a sweetie I really hope you still like him as much when he’s not in my tummy!
-You are the best at giving kisses and melt my heart every time that you pucker up. You’ve also learned that a kiss is the ticket out of time out. As soon as we sit you in time out you are looking up at us going Mmm trying to plant one on us so you can get down.
-you know how to throw a pretty good fit and hit so your pretty familiar with time out
-you are the funniest sweetest feistiest little boy around and we couldn’t love you more!
