19 Months Old!

On this fine Saturday morning, I awoke as an older man! Well, I guess every morning I wake up, I'm a day older. But, that's besides the point. My point is, today I'm 19 months old!

I thought I'd do a recap of the things I'm up to as a 19 month old...

My favorite thing to do in my spare time is to play with my cars, trucks & trains. You can usually find me wandering around the house or day care with a car in each hand.

I take my cars & trucks to the kitchen & push them around. It gives me tons of enjoyment & keeps me occupied when my parents need to do something. Although, anything they do should involve me, since I am the center of the universe. Am I not?

My favorite thing to watch is Disney's Cars & I usually watch it in the morning while Mom & Dad get ready for work & in the evening as I'm getting ready for bed. My parents are trying to limit the amount of TV I watch, so I'm not able to watch Cars as much as I'd like to. Which would be about five hours a day if I had my way.

I wear size 4 diapers, size 6 shoes & 2T or 24 month clothes. And you know what they say about big feet, right? A big heart! What were you thinking??

When Daddy asks where Mama is, I point to her (which is what I was doing in this picture) & say, in the cutest voice, Mama! I do this for anyone you ask about; even people I just met... well, I can point to them, I can't say their names. I'm not that good yet.

I adore playing with my pets! Demps can be a bit overbearing at times & she even tries to snag my cereal when I'm snacking. Stella gets a little ornery when I sneak up on her when she's sleeping. She snarls & growls & my feelings get hurt. I rarely cry, but I look around at my mom & dad, and I breathe very heavily & whimper.

Here's where I do my snacking!

I still sleep very well. My parents give me my milk in a sippy cup at around 7:30p.m., it takes me about two minutes to drink & then I lay in my crib & "talk" for about a half hour. So, technically I sleep from about 8p.m. until about 7:30a.m. Although, this morning, I decided I'd let my parents sleep until a bit after 8!

And when I'm home, I nap for 2 1/2 to 4 hours. My napping can get excessive. And any parents of little ones out there might be reading this, thinking, yeah, big problem to have. BUT, when I'm sleeping from noon to four, most of the day is shot.

I loathe having my diaper changed because I don't at all appreciate having to stop what I'm doing & lay down for a pee or poop-ectomy!

I like to snack before school, so yesterday I moseyed up to my snack table on my horse. My mom put pillows all around my snack table so that Demps couldn't snag any!

Well, that's just a little of who I am at the moment. I change every day, it seems, so keep on checking back!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I know I will, since we're heading to pick my Grammy up at the airport in about a half hour!!

Haircut & Naked Time!

Saturday my mom decided it was high time I got my third haircut. This time though, she decided only to cut the back & sides while keeping the top long.

The above & below pictures are the before shots.

And here's the finished product! Aren't I quite a handsome devil?!

And here I am, just munching on some prunes!

After my haircut, I took the liberty of getting naked while my mom & dad were preoccupied with something else! I was in my diaper & the next thing they knew, they had a naked boy on their hands! Good thing they censored the photos & didn't put any front shots on here (not that I have anything to be ashamed about, if you know what I mean!)

Bye for now! Hope you're all having a great week!

18 Month Check-Up

Today I was so happy to see my mom at daycare earlier than usual. But unfortunately, instead of going & doing something fun, we had to go to the pediatrician for my 18 month well visit which included 2 shots. Ouch! Although, I handled it like a champ, if I do say so myself. And I do!

Here are my 18 month stats:

Height: 34.5" = 94% (1/2" longer than my 15 month visit)
Weight: 30# = 90% (1 1/2# up since my 15 month visit)
Head Circumference: 20.28" = 100% (as usual!) (0.2" huger than my 15 month visit)

I've started to level off as far as my weight gain is concerned which the doctor said is completely normal at this age. I'm so active & I have a short attention span during meals. I'm going to start taking a multi-vitamin since I don't always get a well-balanced diet with all the fruits & vegetables I need (my mom hangs her head in shame in regards to this!)

Here's a few pictures of the 18 month version of me!

Look at my juicy, pouty, kissable lips!

I love playing with my alphabet train!

And I especially love climbing! I'm such a little monkey & quite the daredevil!

Ta-Da! I made it to the top of the couch! I'm king of the world!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Today is my dad's 31st birthday! When we got home from daycare today, the house smelled delicious & I suspected that Mommy had made a tasty meal to celebrate the day!

And boy oh boy was I right! We enjoyed Chicken Cordon Bleu with whipped garlic mashed potatoes & roasted asparagus. I'm sure my mom would share the recipe for the chicken if she had one, but she basically just butterflied & pounded out boneless chicken, dredged it into flour, egg & panko breadcrumbs, browned them, stuffed them with ham & sharp Provolone cheese & baked them at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. Viola!

I was loving my meal! (Although, come to think of it, after a few bites I wanted to get out to play & then I just had my mom & dad feed me whenever I felt inclined to have another bite).

It's the birthday boy!

Don't mind if I pretty much devour my dad's entire birthday parfait!

Me & Mommy got Daddy a Bears hat & a Blackhawks t-shirt. Unfortunately, the hat is too small for his massive noggin! No wonder my head circumference is >100th percentile!

And for dessert, my mommy ate some stinky toes instead of cake! Happy Birthday, Daddy, I love you with all my little boy heart!

As things were wrapping up on Easter, everyone heard some clambering going on in Mommy & Daddy's bathroom. And they found that the source of the noise was me & my cousin Mikayla having a blast goofing off in the shower!

These pictures speak for themselves!

A Bountiful Easter!

I woke up Sunday morning assuming it was just another day, but to my utter delight, I was faced with a basket full of goodies & eggs hidden throughout the house. I wasn't sure what was up with that, but I went with it!

My first Bible!

Found another egg! This one is orange!

Look at all the eggs I found!

Aren't I handsome? Don't mean to toot my own horn, but you really can't argue with me on this one.

Having a pre-church dance with Mommy. Okay, maybe she's busting a move on her own; she's a bit wacky, that one.

Stella spent half the day in the pack n' play. You may think this sounds mean or odd but it was neither. She was avoiding Uncle Jonesy's dog & enjoyed being curled up in the safety of her little den.

And this was one of the cool toys I got for Easter! Mikayla was helping me break it in!
