twenty months


today you are twenty months. crazy. over dinner tonight we talked about how fast it is going by. how much we absolutely love and adore you. we talked about our favorite things you do. (our favorites far far outweigh our like throwing a tantrum in the middle of chick-fil-a, and peeing on the floor right after you said you didn't need to go.) yeah we pretty much love everything else about you.

twenty months is kinda toddler-ish. yeah. I said the t-word. You have an opinion (and aren't afraid to share it), you are on the go all day, and you are doing way more big boy things than baby things these days. You now sit in a booster seat instead of your highchair for meals, you no longer get a sippy before nap, we had to buy you a bigger pair of crocs, you totally get how timeout works and we started potty training. you are so vocal. you can say around 50 words, but my favorites are 'helicopter',  'yes mam', and 'all better' after we kiss a boo-boo. you just started saying your version of 'i love you' which sounds more like ya-yuv-you but I'll take it any way you wanna say it. daddy loves how you say 'yeah' to anything we ask you. (you wanna eat rocks for dinner? yeah. are you a sassy baby? yeah.) your favorite show is bubble guppies, and your favorite toys are trains (choo-choo's) and things that stack like blocks and cubes. your favorite foods are peas, chicken, mango, and cheese-its.

you love to help in the kitchen and ride on the lawnmower with daddy. you love cole so much! he is the first person you ask for when you wake up in the morning and the first one you look for when we get home. lucky dog. daddy taught you to put your hands up to catch a ball. it is the cutest thing ever. you get a mini-m&m if you tee-tee or poo-poo in the potty. you don't ever let us forget about it either. it has been such an amazing summer with you, my sweet boy. I just don't want it to end.

I know I say this every month. but twenty months is by far my favorite age. we love you times a million. xoxoxo momma & dada
