18 months old!

We can't believe he's 18 months old. I had to get my usual round of pictures at landmark 'birthdays' so to speak, even though its really not a birthday. When he was wee little it was the usual monthly picture, then after he turned one, its been every 3 months. As he's gotten older, its become increasingly difficult to get him to STAY STILL for a picture, or smile, or stop talking haha... for these, we went to the nearby golf course, looked at the pine trees, saw the ducks, and played in the leaves. We came back and finished up in our own backyard. Here are some of our favorites.

At this age, the kid is on the go! So on the go, he really has no time or patient for sitting down to eat. He gets all excited to get in his chair and eat, but then is quickly done and ready to play again! He's jabbering more and more - and using so many signs as well. We understand most of what he says, especially if its paired with a sign. He loves to dance to "Go Diego Go" theme song and any type of music really. He loves to let the dogs in and out for their trips into the yard. He protests brushing his teeth as if it were painful. He likes to read his books with me sitting beside him reading another one of his books too. He's not as cuddly at this age, he's just too busy. but when he gets ready for bed, we cuddle and watch his show before bed. I cherish this time even more now than ever!

Arts and Crafts

We are now doing an arts and crafts activity on our fridays together - well okay, its just play doh but he loves it and we call it arts and crafts haha... we tried arts and crafts one other time with markers and crayons and paper - quite a disaster. play doh went much better!! He got the play doh in his halloween treat basket actually... he kept asking to open it so i thought we'd give it a shot.
He did the usual - hey, i want to put this in my mouth - bit but only tried once or twice before realizing that was a "no no" and moved onto acutally playing with it...

We've pulled it out a few times since and he gets all excited when i yell "arts and crafts" haha...

Some Light Reading...

I picked up some little tiny books at a thrift store the other day, about 5 of them, and abram loves how tiny they are. he sits down with them, and looks thru them, pointing to things and jabbering to himself. This chair is his outdoor chair that he pulled inside a few weeks ago. He got his book and went right to his chair for some light reading...

Husband and I each picked up a wig for halloween. I was going to be a 'blonde' for halloween and husband was headed to a concert that night and dressed up as early 90's eddie vedder. My wig was blonde. husband was brown.

I took this one to see if me being a blonde made me look more like abram - i dunno!

abram loved the blonde wig. on me. on him. and on dad! ha.

but he was SO funny about the brown wig. running from it and not wanting to put it on his head but laughing... we finally got him to have it on for a split second...


He's really started to get into dancing but ESPECIALLY to his favorite show (and ONLY show haha) Go Diego Go. He gets to watch 15 minutes of it before bed and has started to really get into the music! this night especially...
