just in the nick of time (>>he hits 17m in another day).
We had QUITE the month. Including 'baby's first mandatory hurricane evacation'.
Nash, at 16 months you...
...want to THROW everything. You have a great "pitch" on the balls in your ball pit and they end up scattered across the living room floor daily. (good thing we make the big brothers pick them up!)
...LOVE annie's cheddar bunnies. They are the main food group that sustains you each day.
...thought the biscuit that you ate at Maple Street this month was DELICIOUS. Yay for adding a new egg-free breakfast food into the mix.
...stack and sort EVERYTHING. We keep the duplo lego bin in my bathroom so that you can play with it while I'm getting ready in the am - you enjoy looking at all the legos and setting & placing them out next to each other - then moving them into the shower if the shower door happens to be open...!
...JUST STARTED officially pulling up on furniture. You got annoyed one afternoon that big brothers were i-padding it away on the couch and ignoring you, so you decided to pull yourself up to see what was going on. HOORAY! Evan was so excited and screamed for me to come in. This was also about 2 days after we went in for a PT evaluation (since you're not walking). You've gotten really great at the standing and pulling up during the last few weeks and are now pulling up on things like the wall mirror or the baby gate. It's the CUTEST when you stand and eat a snack at the "little table" with your brothers!!!
...LOOOOOOOOOVE mickey. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is our go-to lifesaver when you've had it. You love all of your mickey books, mickey legos, & mickey toys -- and you call mickey "Guh-Gah" when you see him and point at him saying "Guh-Gah" repeatedly.
...still throw food everywhere. If you don't care for what I gave you (ie strawberries, cantelope) - you sort that item out of the mix and drop it quietly with your arm outstretched next to the high chair. OR if you're just *done* eating, you do the same. Toby enjoyed half a cheese biscuit this way earlier in the week.
...POINT at everything. I'm waiting for you to break out more words, but for now the pointing is working well for you. (sidenote- you totally said "bah-bee" at a pic of a baby on a diaper box in target earlier in the week)
...LOVE to give "hugs" and "kisses" to us. Or to your animals (hug pictured above!!).
...are always SO SUPER EXCITED to pick up big brothers from school each day. Even if it means ripping you awake from your nap at 2:20.
...LOOOOOVE books. Dear Zoo remains the winning favorite. I read it in order. Daddy lets you pick the page that you want to read and move on from there at your discretion.
...have SO MANY teeth. I've lost count.
...& hopefully had your last ear infection for a while. We had tubes put in this month.
XOXOXOXO sweet baby...
we love you.
