I think we stop counting in months now

So as of last Thursday my baby toddler turned 18 months.
That's a year and a half people.
I told my dad that probably means I have to stop counting his age in months, but he told me it's perfectly acceptable until 2.  So I'm going with that.
Anything to keep him little as long as I can. 
Especially after buying him some 24mos and 2T clothes for spring/summer.
Seriously.  Who is this man child and where's my baby?
His little personality is really starting to shine through.
He loves to dance.  And run.  And chase the dog.
He talks nonstop.  Learning new words everyday.
Honestly.  Everyday. 
{Which means we probably need to watch those frequent occasional F bombs}
He imitates everything.  It's hilarious and adorable all at the same time.
He's also become Mr. Independent.  Which isn't always a good thing.
The tantrum throwing is in full force.  Full out screaming, on the floor, kicking.
He's learned this new "trick" where if he doesn't want to hold your hand while out in public he will go completely limp, refusing to walk until you let go.  And if you pick him it's as if his world has ended.
It's awesome. 
He's testing his limits all.the.time.
He's had his first time out.
But amidst all the toddler drama he's such a softie.
He loves to give hugs and slobbery kisses.
He loves to snuggle in your lap.
And just recently has started saying I love you...which comes out more like "I youuuu"
It seriously melts my mama heart.
I couldn't love that kid anymore.

Happy Monday friends!

Jeremy, Censie and Jude said...

Adorable! Yeah at 2 I promised to stop using months too! ;) lol

Melissa said...

He's so cute and getting so big!

Can we discuss the fact that my 8 month old weighs the same as your 18 month old? I have a freakin linebacker for a child lol

Molly said...

Oh yes, I love this age. It is so fun when they start learning new words each day. And I concur on the "I love you" and the kisses. Brigs is becoming such a lovey dovey these days!

Oh they really do grow so fast! I can't believe he is 18 months. Yes, keep on counting in months as long as you can!! Happy Valentines Day

Gwen said...

He's getting more grown up by the minute!!! I can't believe he's almost 2! Jamie you need to slow down! Pretty soon Ellie won't even be able to pick you up.

Big Valentine's hugs and kisses for you all!!!
