Happy 18 months Owen

WOW!! Owen, I cannot believe that you are 18 months...6 months shy of being 2!! My, where does the time go? What are you up to these days?????

He is VERY busy...into everything....prefers real appliances oppose to his toy vacuum, broom, etc....give him a vacuum and turn it on and he will seriously vacuum for 20 min!

He loves sweets....especially fruits and cookies...not a huge fan of veggies....oh well...we try to sneak them in when ever possible :-)

He loves to ride the tractor ( lawn mower) and he LOVES the pool.

He loves cats, dogs, and birds.

He loves to play outside...wants to be outside all the time.

He loves to see his family, friends, and other kids....tries to give most kids hugs and holds his hand out and says "WALK"...too cute!!!

He is still not a big fan of unfamiliar strangers ( it is just certain people...mostly males with beards)..he will warm up to them it just takes a while.

He dislikes the swing....prefers to push his friends Elmo and Henry in there instead

He is VERY sweet and loving....but very strong spirited as well.

He loves to feed his "friends" Henry and Elmo....and give us bites of what ever he is eating....such a sharer!

He is a fairly good sleeper....sleeps from 8pm-8am(wakes up some during the night) and naps from 1-4....(naps vary from 2- 3hrs)

He is not a big snuggler....Mommy and daddy really wish that he were :-(....he prefers to be down....but will give you a kiss and a hug in a heart beat!

Lately, he has become quite the talker....walk, mommy, daddy, papa, hey, bye bye, thank you, shampoo, brush, teeth, water, park, pool, tractor, chair, table, cup....are just a few of his favorites!!! We are having to be very careful of what we say....for example yesterday, we were talking about teeth (random topic)....immediately he goes to bathroom and gets his toothbrush....for some reason he has a very difficult time parting with this once he has it....usually results in a meltdown ha!

He can point to all his body parts (nose, hair, teeth, eye, knee, foot....etc)

Owen, we just love you soooo much!! It is hard to believe that you are 1 1/2 today! You continue to amaze us......we are so lucky that God choose us to be your parents!!!
