Wonderful One

The Hulk is 16 months old now! Someone please tell me how this is possible. It's flying by in the blink of an eye! This mama doesn't seem to be able to keep up with a baby book or a scrap book or any of those things. So the blog is it for this baby. So with that in mind here are a few tidbits about this guy at month 16 just so I never forget!

The Hulk loves to look out the door or the windows and watch what is going on outside. In fact he likes to try and open the doors now and escape!

If the lawn guy is here mowing he jumps at the door and screams until I take him outside to watch. He always gets a complimentary ride on the mower from Brian too.

The Hulk still is a wonderful eater though he has identified a few things that aren't his favorite. Carrots get pushed to the side and fed to the dog. And if I give him craisins and raisins at the same time he eats all the craisins first. Cracks me up. He still loves all other veggies, millet, humus, most fruits, and bananas!

The Hulk still waddles when he walks but can now squat down and pick something up without falling over.

He can stack 4 blocks and now pushes his trucks and cars along the floor complete with sound effects.

Dance party time is his favorite activity and he of course still loves those books.

He says the following words or some variation of them that only I and a few others understand...mama, lena, dog dog, bath, duck, quack, moo, ball, book, banana, noni (for Liz), no no, milk, poop, out, go, and block.

If you ask him what sound a monster makes he will make a roaring sound. Makes me laugh every time.

Month 16 has proven to me that children are amazing! This is by far my favorite stage so far. I love exploring the world again through his eyes. And I love that he has such a great sense of humor. He is turning into a big boy and a fun boy! What a blessing!!!

I can't wait to see what his first sentence is. My Mom loves to remind me that my brother's first sentence was, "Go away Julie." :)

Happy 16th month to your little man. It's SO true that time flies by...a little frightening actually, because you can totally understand how people can be genuinely surprised they are standing at their child's high school graduation.

He is 100% adorable!
