It is unreal to me that my baby is already a year and a half! I about feel over when Dr. Brunner said that she would see us in 6 months at Easton's 2 year appointment!! He is as ornery as ever and thinks he is as big as his brother!
His absolute favorite thing in the whole world continues to be balls. From the moment he wakes up he is searching for a ball to tote around or launch across the room! He also enjoys finding large sticks to use as a bat.
While we were at his well visit I asked Dr. Brunner what the last possible moment to stop his night time bottle. She said "18 months." Boo!!! My baby is no longer a baby! He also stopped taking his morning nap at Miss "Ta-Da's." I struggled with the lack of nighttime rocking, snuggle time, sloppy kisses, and talking of "tar-tars" (guitars), so I forced him to let me rock him. It took him a couple of days but we've got our new routine down! We read 2 books, then he pushes the button for his music, turns off the light, and shuts his door. Then I ask him if he wants to go in his crib and he shakes his head and says, "naw." When I ask him if he want to rock he nods and says, "ya." Then we rock-a-bye with lots of snuggles, kisses, and songs! This makes mama happy!
|Obviously you can see how shaken up he is about being in the hospital!!|
Although I am sad to say good-bye to all of the baby related things I am super excited that he is growing, learning, and talking. He adds so much laughter and love to our family!
