The big one-eight!

Parker Bubs,

You are 18 months old! Somehow, when we weren't looking, you made it through half of your second year! 


You continue to bring joy to our lives each and every day. You are on the go all the time. As soon as you wake up, you're counting or saying your ABC's in your crib (you can say your ABC's all the way to letter "f" and count to 11). 

Some stats:  at your doctor appointment, you weighed 27 pounds and are 33.5 inches tall. You are still in size 5 diapers, and all of your clothes are 18 months, some even 24 months. 



You LOVE Scout! You've always liked your stuffed animal, but there's also a cartoon and you'd watch it 3 times a day if we let you. 



You and Jack are buddies! He makes you laugh. :) You really enjoy "playing" with him, which, for now, means patting him on the head or back and sitting on him. :)

Here you are, giving Jack a treat. He's so gentle and careful with you. :)

You continue to LOVE letters and numbers. I'd say 75% of your playtime revolves around numbers or letters in some form. 




You also know colors (red. orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, brown, black and gray) and some new shapes (besides circle, square, oval and triangle): rectangle, trapezoid, pentagon and octagon!!!!




Here you are saying letters in your crib:

We brought your activity table back out (it's been in the garage since your birthday) and you are enjoying it all over again! You especially like "making music" so you can dance.

Speaking of dancing, you and Mia had fun dancing in front of the tv the other night. :) 


((((video to come!)))



"Me-Mote" (remote)


 You blow kisses now! And you make a cute "mu-wah" sound. ;) You also say "hi" and "bye" and do a little wave with your hand. 

Some more cuteness...








You still have a fascination with hats! 

Little Bubs, we love you so much and we're so proud of the little man you're becoming. You are a sweet boy who loves to learn... we just hope that we can keep up with you! We are so thankful to God for the precious gift of YOU.

Love, Mommy and Daddy
