16 Months

I turned 16 Months this weekend and got to spend all 3 days with Mommy & Daddy! We had lots of fun as I'm learning lots and lots of new things! Mommy & Daddy can't believe the difference now that my ears are fixed! My vocabulary has made a complete turn around! While I LOVE to hear myself jibber jabber and squeal, I am back to saying Momma and Dada.
You'll also hear these words:
"baw" (Ball)
"hi say" (Hi Sadie)
"daw" (Dog)
"du" (Duck)
"nana" (Banana or Gramma, not sure which)
"papa" (Grampa)
and I'm still signing "more"

I've been doing a lot of imitating as I learn new things. I like to shake and squeeze the lotion bottle like Mommy. I like to grab Daddy's shaver and rub it along my face. I know what "sit" means, but I don't always like to listen. (I get told this a lot when I'm in the tub!) I go up and down the stairs all by myself - Daddy took the gate down last week! Sadie likes having more freedom too!

I enjoyed my first kid's meal at 54th Street last week! I thought it was pretty neat-o... And I got my own ice cream dessert!! (Daddy didn't even eat it all, can you believe it?!)

I am learning to draw...
I like to play with balloons...
 and all kinds of other toys!

I did some coloring...Am I left handed?
Or right handed?
It's tough to say...

We went to the playground!

There was an Easter egg hunt after church!

I had another egg hunt at home.
I liked to shake them up!
Then say "Ball" and throw them back on the ground!
I have lots of yellow eggs...
You can have this one!
Sadie had fun too!
 I gave her a pat on the back for being such a good help!
...Cuz she's my buddy!

I got a really yummy chocolate bunny for Easter dessert!
I was sharing with Mommy & Daddy too... I was biting pieces off and handing them off!
All done! He was delicious!

Feeling better!

Well, if you didn't know, I've had a horrible time with multiple ear infections since December. We scheduled an appt with an ENT and finally got tubes in my ears on Friday. Everything went well and I've adjusted to the "newness" of my ears. It was a rough week though, as I started having a fever the Monday prior. Mom & Dad took me to the Dr. and found that I had ANOTHER ear infection! So after 3 days of fever and many sleepless nights all week, I finally got the tubes and I'm feeling much better!!

I've also had many visitors come to play with me the last few weeks! First Aunt Molly & Uncle J brought their dog, Luke, and new puppy, Rio, to visit. I had a good time with Rio, only he had a lot of unpredictable energy that sometimes got to be too much for me.

Next, Gramma Jean & Grampa Larry came to see me. We had a good time playing too.
They taught me how to say "Papa".

Gramma Mushy & Uncle Marc visited last weekend after my ear surgery.
Once I started feeling better, I played lots more...

First Haircut!

Well, it was that time...the baby curls all got chopped off! Mommy and Daddy realized it was time when we were out this weekend and a waitress asked them if "she" (meaning me) needed a high chair! I think the waitress realized afterwards that she made a mistake, but Mommy & Daddy weren't going to take any chances of it happening again! We went to a place called Shear Madness where I got to sit in a Hummer! It was kinda exciting and they had cartoons playing for me too!
Here's my hair before the cut...
And here's the cut...
The results...
Of course I was a good boy through it all! It tickled a bit when the hair fell on my lashes and nose. Mommy even got to take some of the cut hair home in a little bag, though I'm not quite sure what she's going to do with it.
