16 months

Gosh!  We can't believe how fast he's growing and learning!

**Communication overload  He's talking and babbling stories all the time!  We'll often times overhear him "talking" to himself while playing.  He's repeating almost anything we ask him to say.  He says please without being asked sometimes.  Which by the way is the cutest sound ever!  Kirby and I can't say no to it.  We are working on Ma'am, Sir,  and thank you.

**first time out He's been testing the limits and exploring his independence a lot lately!  Therefore he had his first time out this month.  It's been from biting, hitting, and throwing things.  Thankfully, it hasn't happened too many times.

**sports  Football, baseball, basketball... anything with a ball.  He even imitates "calling the play" when playing football.  He yells "TOUCHDOWN!" whenever football is on TV.  Going to his first football game was a hit!

**climbing EVERYTHING!  It seems like overnight he grew tall enough to climb the couch by himself and then took off!  He's climbing toys (that aren't supposed to be climbed) and chairs and loves to climb everything at the playground. 


**bumps, scrapes, and bruises... it comes with the above I guess...  He looks so beat up sometimes!

**diaper changes  These got worse this month.  He doesn't want to be still for any sort of time.  We usually need to turn on Elmo or Shania Twain to help distract him. 

**Shania Twain  His new girlfriend.  Obsessed.  He will sit through several songs without moving.  This has helped in many situations (see above).  Thank you Shania!

**tubes This is the biggest thing this month.  He had another ear infection (double) and so we were referred to an ENT.  Our appointment is October 29, so we'll see what he says.  We have a feeling, after 9 infections, our little man will get tubes. 
**loves hats, trains, shovel, blocks, and still books


(...even at daycare... even things that aren't a hat)
**Other random things to remember
cute projects from school all the time

loves to play in the car


we shoes... new jacket... new clothes!  Our boy is growing!
