Big Boys Don't Cry...Just Their Moms

At the beginning of this past week, Bubs turned 18 months! Slightly a big milestone, especially in church terms. He went to his first day at nursery today. I was planning on going in with him, but I was warned by Lance that I SHOULD NOT do that because it would make it harder for David to be comfortable there. But who would be there to protect my little babe from the nursery bullies or from the evil sugary snacks/drinks that they might give him? Not me, not this time! I went to sunday school and started to cry...thank goodness everyone else was too...from the lesson. Most moms I'm sure are so ready for the day that they can sit through lessons at church without interruptions of whining, crying, and chasing the kids through hallways. I was 5% ready to drop him off and 95% sad/reluctant to. I just couldn't help from being sad over the idea of him getting just a little bit older and doing bigger kid things! I dropped him off and not a tear or whine came out! I checked in about 15 times to see if he was ok and every time he was perfectly fine! Even without his mom. I have a feeling this is what it will be like when he goes for his first day of school or to his first cubscout outting...he will be perfectly fine and excited to go and discover, and I will be an emotional wreck, wanting to protect him from the world. Is it so bad that I want him all to myself:-)

A few fun things about our 18 month old:
- He loves to talk! He will just jabber non-stop. He will repeat almost anything we ask him to say. He says HI! to Lance and me everytime we walk in the room. It surprises most people how enthusiastically he says things.

-Favorite foods as of late: blueberries, strawberries, apples, cottage cheese, hummus, greek yogurt(yes he prefers that over regular), crackers...and on and on. Every once in a while I will let him have a treat or what he thinks is a treat(my protein bars?), he'll put it in his mouth and then start laughing EVERYTIME it is something somewhat sweet. He loves his foods!

- He still loves cars over most everything.

-He loves books, second to cars. He likes to read the same books over and over again.

-He loves watching baby einstein on Lance's phone and snugs with you when he does(Lance does this alot so he can get his snugs in with David).

- Loves the water and being outdoors.

-Loves Jake and sitting on him.

- He still sucks on his pointer finger.

-Loves to be around other kids.

-Has the funniest sense of humor.

-Sometimes he hits you when you do something he doesn't like...we're working on that. He gets very sad when you reprimand him.

-When we wrestle with him he gets so excited that he starts to bite things;you, the blankets,etc.
-He has 4 front teeth and still only two bottom but he has a few molars coming in now.



There are probably a lot of things I'm sure I have forgotten that I might add on later, but this is a few about our favorite little turkey!

Old Mcdonald Had a Farm

Other than cars, David's next obession is with animals. He loves all animals(especially dogs) and making all sorts of animals sounds. He will walk up to any dog he sees, mabye not the safest thing to do, but he'll do it with all the excitement a 1.5 yr old can have! He loves looking at books with animals in them and will point to his favorites and say "dat!"(for "what's that?") and I will answer him. When I ask him, he will usually say "dat!" again and then I have to answer or he'll make the sounds of the animal...too cute. We came up to NY this week to visit Lance while he was in town and we found, of all things to do in NY, a farm that you can tour! So in the 95+ heat we headed out to the farm...



 Don't worry there were lots REAL animals that we eventually looked at









I think both great-grandpas on both sides of our family would love to see this





Love em', love em'!
