Ethan's World: 18 Months

18 months?!! How did that happen so fast? Time is just whizzing by and every day it seems like you are changing. The biggest change this month has been your vocabulary. You are adding new words every day, it's amazing. You try and repeat so many things that we say. My favorite new word word that you are saying is, "purple." The way you say it is so cute. Speaking of colors, we've been working on identifying colors and you are doing so well. You can pick out blue, green, red and purple so far. 

We've done so many fun family things in your 17th month.We visited the pumpkin patch, painted pumpkins, did lots of crafts, played in the leaves and went trick-or-treating. It was so much fun this year to have you participate fully in our activities. You are so excited every time we do something new, it is just so fun to watch your enthusiasm for everything. 

Your two current obsessions are Thomas the tank engine and being outside. You are obsessed with everything trains. We took you to a local train show at a library and you loved it. You just loved watching all the trains and kept saying, "choo, choo."

You also love being outside. You don't care what the weather is, when we get home from going somewhere you want to run around for at least a few minutes. You love walking through the leaves, watching birds fly by and seeing airplanes fly overhead. I am so happy you love the outdoors and can't wait to play in the snow with you this Winter!

Other stat updates: Your weight is right at 28 pounds and you are officially 36 inches tall. You've had a growth spurt this month. Even your feet grew. The size 7 shoes we bought you 2 months ago are already tight! You are still in size 4 diapers, size 18 month and 18-24 month clothes. You have 12 teeth, including 4 molars. You have been drooling like crazy, it's just been pouring out of your mouth so I'm guessing there are more on their way. You have been eating more and have been trying more things which we are so happy about. Pasta is still your favorite food and you have never met a cracker you don't like!

Ethan, right now you can be described in three words: SO.MUCH.FUN! You make Daddy and I smile so big and laugh so hard. We love every second we spend with you. We just wish time would slow down a little. We keep looking at you lately and you just look so big. You are definitely not our little baby anymore. We don't know how we got so lucky but you are the sweetest little boy we could have ever imagined.  We can't wait to celebrate the holidays with you and make so many more wonderful memories as a family. Happy 18 months my little man!
