16 Months

by jessicaturner on November 12, 2009

This is you right now.

Walking everywhere – sometimes a little unsteadily.

Exploring.
Living joyously.
But this is more how I see you sometimes, – a blur that is growing up so fast I can barely keep up.

Here are a few facts about you:

  • You are saying: mama, dada, nana (for banana, Nana and Mama), sock, what’s that, no no, yeah
  • You are wearing mostly 18 months, though some 12 months pants.
  • When we say, “Elias, it’s time to go night night, you get up and walk to your bedroom.”
  • You sleep with two or three stuffed animals every night. Your favorite is Cat (from Cat in the Hat)
  • You love iphones and insist on getting Daddy’s every morning when we wake him up.
  • You prefer to walk more than crawl now.
  • You have the best laugh I have ever heard.
  • You are very ticklish.
  • When you know it is time to get out of the tub, you splash as hard as you can, as if to get in just a little more fun.
  • Your favorite toy is your magnet leap frog farm on the fridge. You play with it all the time.You also love your wood train and stacking toys.
  • You kick your feet whenever we get somewhere in the car because you know you get to get out of your car seat. 
  • You love your class at day care and don’t often cry when drop you off. In fact yesterday, you waved bye and went right on playing. 
  • You blow kisses when someone says I love you.
  • You think Daddy is sooooo funny.
  • You still prefer your milk in a bottle, though you are getting better with it in a sippy cup.
  • You are our pride and joy.
