Once again I'm posting the "Hello & Goodbye" edition of Nash's monthly update... 21 Months was a good one for us.
Nash, at 21 months you...
...are up to just about 26 lbs, and 32 inches.
...are getting FAST at your newfound walking/speed walking skills!
...LOVE trains! We resurrected the thomas train table (dating back to Evan's 2nd Bday & long since used as "storage" in our playroom) and bins of trains and tracks in the garage - setting up a few favorite trains and a small track loop. You like to organize and sort the trains (big surprise!) and transport them all over the house. We found about 8 trains "stored" in the interior of our front window behind the plantation shutters (you had secretly put them all through the slots!). And we can almost always find you carrying around the red train - James (your fave! see below!!).
...seem to finally have come out of your sullen, angry, annoyed, and generally devil-baby period (the 2+ months that preceded this month) -- I'm attributing it to complications from your ear tube surgery healing in one ear and the fact that the ENT cleared one ear of this mess (thus the better attitude all around after!!!).
...still think almost ANY animal that's orange or yellow or has a long neck or is a bird says "QUACK". See below -- you were saying "quack quack" to the long neck dino...!!!
...LOVE being outside. Especially when the big boys are out front playing (basketball!). You point and make us bring out the baby hoop and a collection of "bahl-bahs" (balls). And you love the water table (minus water!) too!
...love to watch Sesame and Mickey and you get up and dance (& look around the room to see if we are watching your cuteness!) anytime the Sesame "letter (or number) of the day" song comes on.
...are starting to make more animal sounds. You've for sure got "quack quack" down & a realistic elephant noise, and you also will now "baaaa" for sheep and "Mmmmm" (moo) for cows and you still shout "guh-gah" about lions.
...HATE taking baths.
...decided that "fridge-shopping" is just as exciting as pantry-shopping, and will wait at the fridge for us to pick you up when we open it.
...ate TWO crayons this month (the points). :( SO we're going to hold off on those for a bit and focus on stickers as a fun diversionary activity while we're out. ;)
...LOOOOOVE your orange tambourine. It's a go-to carry-around toy.
...LOVE your big brothers, but refuse to stand with them for a photo...!!! :)
...and are just about the cutest thing we ever could have dreamed up. It's so sweet seeing Evan & Noah appreciate your fleeting "baby-ness" and adorable antics as much as daddy and i do.
