20 Months Old

We have officially entered the phase where I feel silly saying __ months old...which means I am going to have to soon start saying 2 years old. Sniff. How did that happen?!

Mr. Fancy Pants has been growing like a weed lately! He is 33.5 inches tall and 24 pounds. 

After I typed the above sentence I entered in his weight and height into the app I've used since he was born and laughed! On October 29 he weighed 26 pounds and was 33 inches tall. So apparently these long legs I keep seeing are all a figment of my imagination!

I will say that his language is the thing that is definitely growing rapidly! I know I mentioned that last month but his vocabulary and phrases grow every day! He loves to tell us to move if we're in his way; when I'm laying down sometimes he says "mama get up"; his last piece of cheese was under a napkin and he said "Parker cheese, gone?" He seems very eager to learn new words too. If I say a word or tell him what something is, he usually repeats it or tries to.

He learned how to do 'shh' and its so cute! When you tell him to close his eyes they scrunch up in the cutest way! He is practicing his jumping...usually in his bed. He is pretty brave sometimes, trying to jump off things if you are close by. He likes to play catch but mostly if you are the one catching.

He went to the doctor this morning for a recheck on his left ear which has had an infection and it still hasn't gone away. Hopefully this round of antibiotics will help because he has had a terrible cough since Thanksgiving.

We went to my cousin's house for Thanksgiving and he really enjoyed looking at their sheep.

He used the fire mitt to help spread all the branches in the tree.

19 Months

I'm a few days late but P-Man is 19 months old! This last month has shown so much development!


His speech has really gown so much lately! He is putting together phrases more and more and phrases that are more of a command/request like "dada play" or "mama go" "mamma up". These requests are funny too because if you don't do what he is asking, he is likely to try and push or pull you to what or where he wants!

He loves wearing Clint's boxing gloves.

Fall Trip to California

For fall break, Clint, Parker, and I took a trip to California to visit my mom and step dad. We went to the beach twice, checked out IKEA, went to the park, and played!

 Our flight left at 6 am so we let Parker sleep in his clothes for the plane so we wouldn't have to mess with getting him dressed! He slept for the first 2 hours and then we had a short layover on Phoenix. The second flight was slightly delayed once we boarded so he chowed down on an apple and a bazillion other snacks! He was so good on the plane though!

He loved my mom's dog Luna.

He loved Mercury...except when he got a bite!

We made sure that he didn't take a nap before getting to the airport...so he was pretty tired before we got on the plane! But it worked out because he took a nice long nap!

We had a bunch of fun but recovering from a trip was much harder this time! Boy do toddlers need a schedule and naps!
