i snapped some of Evan's "official" 21 month pics today, while we were at a local little park with new friends...
the park was so beyond fabulous >>> it had tons of vintage-y photo op settings, and an old barn, an old house with a front porch, lots of spanish moss, and was right on the river here in jax... very old florida style. which i loved. :)
((this was at the barn)) >> i had to convince ev to go "tap" on the barn wall in order to get him to stand near it... ;)
and so, at 21 months, evan...
...is such a little sponge. he tries to repeat tons of words that we say. and does a near-perfect imitation (usually from the backseat of the car!) of my frustrated "uggggggggggggggh" and also the inflection of my voice when i'm chatting with my sister(s). it's adorable.
...thinks bubbles and elmo are the coolest. or "elmooooooooooooooooooooo" as he says.
...tests me daily. sometimes answers my "do you want a time-out" (for doing fill-in-the-blank-here) with an emphatic "HABOOM". ok?!
...is still set on the chicken anytizer / grilled cheese menu. altho eric did sneak in some fish sticks last week. go dadda!
...loves to points out both baseball bats and balloons in books. and is also totally interested in any book that involves a "knock-knock".
...leads us by the hand to get us to where he "thinks" we should be.
...gently throws toby's toys to play with him. also says "ooooooo-le" meaning "poodle" >> he has caught on to toby's dual name system where we frequently interchange "toby" with "poodle"
...has reluctanly agreed to wear crocs on occasion. they are sometimes so much easier for momma to get on him than sneakers. :)
...is really into riding his PBK rocking horse this month. he loves that thing. i, on the other hand, have always just loved the way it looked in his room... ;)
...is sometimes so my "mini-me" that it's scary. the boy loves croutons like i do. he doesnt eat anything with much variety, but lets me FEED HIM croutons from my salad. adorable.
...thinks airplanes are genius. we will be walking, or out, or even in the house >> hear a plane, and BAM >> evan is off to track it down in the sky and watch it for as long as humanly possible.
...can be persuaded to do things with the very possibility of seeing birds. ie getting into a shopping cart to go into a store to run an errand. thank you birds. :)
...& is so very close to 2. stop it already.
that's all i've got for today... plus a few more random pics from the park. enjoy. :)
