|17 Months Old - Taken yesterday while at the park for a walk|
He is talking more and more every day. It's all about the "truck" now. If there is a truck, Grant will find it and make you aware of it. And when he gets really excited it's a "big truck!" He says "Hi" all the time and now "bye-bye" to me every morning when Nate takes him to school. And that's how he says goodnight now too. He still says "Dada" a lot although he seems to be making the transition into "Daddy". But now I'm actually getting more "Mama"s out of him too and there's pretty much nothing I love hearing more than that. He says some other things too. He's much better at "thank you" but gets confused when I respond with "your welcome". "Ball" is something we here quite a bit and he's still working on Brodie's name. He's the "Br" part but when he tries to say it, it just sounds like "Bra". We're constantly trying to get him talking because it's just so cute to listen to him. It's more motivation to get rid of the pacifier - which we still have ups and downs with.
|Husband got this sweatshirt for Grant around Christmas time but|
he got it because he knew I'd love it. When I was a kid we used to
go on vacation in the Adirondack Mountains every summer.
|I'm not sure what he's doing here but this picture cracks me up!|
I'm thinking there isn't much more to my monthly update. The talking is the biggest thing right now and he gets better and better at it every day. He's just doing so much growing up. Yesterday when we were at the park he climbed the slide - the big slide - all by himself (Ok, I was holding my hand behind him) and then went down all by himself. There really just doesn't seem to be any baby left in him. My tiny baby is all gone and has been replaced a by a sweet, adorable, stubborn, smart (sometimes too smart), very hard-headed, talkative toddler who can be very cuddly when he's tired...unless he's throwing a fit because he's tired. Then he's not cuddly at all. As a matter of fact, if you try to cuddle him at that point he'll let you know exactly how he feels about that.
