18 Months OR "One-and-a-HALF"...
...your HALF birthday celebration warranted some egg-free homemade sprinkle cupcakes -- which you admired for a bit while we took pics, then tentatively touched and were so NOT impressed by the sticky frosting. You did however LOVE the cake part once I crumbled that up for you (minus the icing!).
Nash, at 18 months you...
...took your first trip to the zoo (pic above). The aquarium viewing tank walls & fast fish were YOUR FAVORITE. You also loved the giraffes (up close!) and zebras.
...are a champion stacker and sorter. We find toys sorted into "lines" or groups all over the house. Taking the lego duplos in and out of the storage bin is actually how you play with them. Forget the building.
...LOVE to watch Mickey. YOU call him "guh-gah". You watch Mickey on DVR and the ipad (especially when you get a little fiesty). And now you watch him on the oldie-goldie ipad since you threw the "good" ipad on the ground at baseball and shattered the screen....
...LOVE kitty-cats and dogs. You call these guys "guh-gah" too.
...You will dig through the entire little people animal bin to find the lion (below) then carry it EVERYWHERE. You call him "guh-gah" too. ;) >> ANYTHING you like = "guh-gah"
...are cruising like a king. And what we call "knee-walking" - it's kinda adorable and hilarious at the same time and you are a FAST KNEE WALKER!!!
...love to shred napkins!!! If you find a stack somewhere you sneakily grab them and go to town on the shredding.
...still love cheddar bunnies, and grilled cheese (Zoe's is a fave lunchstop for us!), and peas(!!!), and recently Chik-fil-a chicken nuggets (we re-intro'd them to you and the minimal egg in the wash doesn't seem to bother you, HOORAY), AND ARE finally a fan of graham crackers......!
...& you especially love when we sing you the little made up "i love nashers, yes i do" song and poke your buddha belly... Pics below taken while I was singing it and you were poking your belly to remind me of that part!!!!
We love you so so SO much.
