18 Months Old!

There's my guy! I can't believe he's 18 months old! Officially, the 18 month mark is tomorrow but we had his check up today. Tyler now weighs in at 22 pounds 4 ounces. That puts him in about the 7th percentile for weight, though you'd never guess it with those chubby cheeks of his! And he is 31" tall.

Tyler loves:
-putting on other people's shoes, especially those belonging to his sister. The pink cowboy boots were on his feet just before he decided to switch to the purple clogs. I also have photos of him wearing pink sandals, pink rain boots, pink snow boots, pink and white tennis shoes... (oh yeah, Katy is in love with pink lately)
-eating popcorn. He knows where to find it in the pantry and will bring it out to me. Then lead me to the microwave. And while it's popping he will get out his bowl. Then comes the stuffing as much popcorn into the mouth as possible :)
-playing outside. He loves the slide, and just yesterday he learned how to climb up the ladder to it all by himself. He also loves the sandbox and trying to ride Kaitlyn's bike. He throws tantrums when I get bored and force him to come back inside so I can get things done.
-getting hugs. He will come running and throw his arms around my legs. So cute!
-dancing in the living room with his sister. They turn on Kat DeLuna (uh huh - Katy loves latin music) and twirl and giggle.
-teasing. He's quite a jokester. Loves to be tickled, hung upside down, or chased.
-animals, especially cows and horses. When we are driving he looks out the window and will make animal sounds and point when he sees them.

He can:
-climb up on just about anything now. Scares me to death sometimes when I find him places he shouldn't be. But so far he hasn't tried to get out of the crib (knock on wood!)
-say a few words though most of them are still toddler gibberish or not "real words" (moo, quack, mmm). Most used word: uh-oh!
-follow directions like "go get the book" or "please throw this away"

Awww - I just can't believe my baby boy is growing up so fast!
