Yes, I'm well aware I'm probably the only person who still likes to do monthly updates after their baby turns 1. But I can't help it! I just love looking back and reading them. Plus, they'll be great to have in his baby book. AND he's constantly changing so I have lots and lots to say about him.
So any who, my sweet little boy turned 16 months old on Saturday, March 12. This kid rocks my world like no other. He is so incredibly awesome...and fun....and goofy...and sweet. Oh, and he's smart, so, so smart!!!! I've lost count of how many words he says. He knows all his animals and knows all the noises they make (which he has for a few months now but has added new animals like a skunk!). He has recently really gotten into counting things and we are just starting to get into letters. He loves, loves, loves looking for cars and dogs (his 'woof' is the cutest sound ever!!!) He's still obsessed with books and definitely has his favorites. AND he really loves his mama and dada. He's the happiest when it's just the 3 of us - hanging out and playing. At night when he's nursing he wants his daddy to be sitting right next to us.
Freddie the frog goes everywhere with us (ie see above pic!) and he's most definitely attached to him. Camden loves playing peek-a-boo and always comes around the corner saying 'boo!' He loves to play with my hair - it's definitely a comfort thing for him and I love it. I love the feeling of his little arm wrapped around my neck as he plays with my hair in the back. This little boy has me wrapped right around his little finger and I don't care <3
He loves himself a good little temper tantrum though - especially if he's tired. He likes to be given a choice in things and is pretty independent (gee - I wonder where he gets that from?!?! ha-ha) He likes doing things on his own terms, which most definitely tests our patience at times.
He's still pretty small for his age - he probably weighs under 21lbs. He's wearing mostly 12 month stuff but does still wear 9 month clothes. We are down to nursing in the morning and at night only. His favorite foods are applesauce, eggs, black olives, pancakes, waffles, and watermelon. He does love veggies, though, especially corn, sweet potatoes, and peas. He still loves to help out and especially likes to help make coffee, unload the dishwasher, and of course help with the laundry.
Pretty much we think he's perfect and are totally loving this age! <3
