14 Months

I'm a little late...but we have been busy having fun! Parker is 23 pounds and definitely getting taller. How do I know? He used to fit under the fridge doors but he doesn't anymore. 

He says lots of words and lots of thing that sound like words. He can say the words:
mama, dada, dog, kitty (tiddy...lol), balloon (boon), giraffe (raf), uh oh, boom (bum), Bob (his grandpa), woof, moo, 

He can recognize a lot of other words - like water, boy, basement, outside, slide, grandma, grandpa, put it back, snack, Zoe

He can follow a few simple commands but he also knows when we ask him to do things or not do things and he chooses to ignore us! We are having a hard time with him not playing in Zoe's water. The other night he dumped a full bowl of water on the kitchen floor then laid in it and started swimming. It was hilarious but he is constantly splashing in it!

He has fallen into a good routine with naps (half hour nap in the morning and afternoon). He has had a consistent bedtime routine and time for ever but lately he has been hit or miss as to whether he actually goes down. Sometimes he likes to run amok for an extra hour or two. His glow worm really helps him realize that it's nap time or bed time...except when he throws it on the floor.

He loves most foods and if you are eating anything, he wants to stand right by you with his mouth open. He knows he can tap my mom's leg and she'll hand him something...a bugel, a goldfish, vanilla wafer. He's not too fond of regular milk; some days he only have a few sips of milk and other days he'll drink one cup worth. He loves drinking water though. 

Right now some of his favorite toys are his ball popper (remember when he was scared of this??), his race cars and race track, anything musical, balls, and ALL brooms/mops/long handled tools. I am not kidding...this kid is obsessed with brooms! He sees a long handle and he squeals with excitement! No matter where we are, he wants a broom (someone else's house, the store, outside). He also LOVES books. He will read every book repeatedly and not tire of it. Luckily we have a ton of books and I always find more!

Little man loves to run everywhere! It's too cute except a few times he has gotten too fast and he falls face first which has led to three swollen lips/bloody mouths. It's hard to slow him down! He loves running into things and yell "BUM!" really loud or throw things and yell "BUM!" He also likes to ride in shopping carts and yell "vroom" or push his cars or Batmobile and vroom everywhere.

Parker loves Lucy and Zoe and he likes to cuddle with them...the both are pretty tolerant. Lucy is really good with him; one day he picked her up and tried to carry her. It was so funny! Zoe has come a long way from when Parker first came home. She sometimes tries to get away from Parker and then he chases her in circles which is pretty comical but other times she'll sit or lay still for a little while so he can lay on her. Hopefully they'll become buddies one day!

He LOVED feeding the budgies at the zoo!

I couldn't believe that he wasn't scared at all.

They crawled all over his arms and he loved it!
