Dear Davis–18 Months

     Buddy…how in the world are you 18 months old?!  You are such a big boy lately, and it’s almost too much for me to take! You’ve had a huge month celebrating Christmas with everyone, and I have loved spending this break from school with you.  It’s been awhile since I’ve done a post just for you, but celebrating 18 months seemed like the perfect time!

     The past few months your vocabulary has exploded! You can say anything you want and talk all. the. time.  I love hearing what you have to say!  You have been really agreeable lately, but you definitely know how to pitch a fit.  You can be very stubborn, and when I see those eyebrows go up and your eyes cut over at me, I know you’re ignoring me.

     You have not slowed down at all. You are all go. You love to run and jump and climb and drive be silly and wild and BOY! In spite of all that get up and go, you are still so sweet. Hearing you say “please, mommy” and “wuv ooo” is just about the best thing in the world.

     In the past few months we have done just about everything the world has to offer!  We pumpkin patched (twice), and you showed us that you can pull your own wagon, thank you very much.  Approximately two minutes after that picture, we tried to put you back in and you stood up and fell out splat in the road…because you are busy and never still.  Thankfully you were fine, but one of us may have made a bit of a scene…

     On this particular pumpkin patch day, you thought that 15 minutes was an appropriate length of time to nap…it was not.  By 6:30 you were d.o.n.e.  Side note, I still love your cute little tail in a pajama!

Stats
Length: 34.5 in. (95th percentile)

Weight: 26 lb. 6 oz. (75th percentile)

Sleeping: 7 to 6 with a big midday nap (on a mat when you’re at school!)

     Everyone says you look just like your daddy…but every once in awhile we are twins too! It’s a well known fact that you get a lot of your personality from Mama too…

     We had a petting zoo at church to kick off Animals for Africa, and you loved it! As soon as I told you there were goats, you ran screaming for the yard. You and Suzanne love goats. #yougetitfromyourgranny

     I hated that you didn’t feel too good on this particular weekend, but I did not complain when you wanted to sleep on me for an hour. It was definitely a highlight! Christmas was another big moment this month, and I was so happy to see that you actually kind of “got it.” Last year you weren’t that interested, but this year you were so excited!

     Davis Malcolm, we love so very much! You are tons of fun and bring us lots and lots of happiness! These past eighteen months have stretched us inways we never could have imagined, but they have been the sweetest and best months of our lives. We cannot wait to tackle 2017 with you!
