Dude is 21 Months!!!

Dearest Dude,
You are now 21 months old and growing way too fast!  You look like a little boy now. See.

We are letting your hair grow out and you've lost most of the "baby look".  However, you are still rocking the arm rolls.  I may cry when you thin out enough to lose them.

Here's what you're up to:

  • You are a total daddy's boy now.  
  • I am ok with this.  You soak up every inch of your daddy when he is home.  I believe that children need a strong father figure and it makes my heart smile to see my boy's love for each other grow.
  • You are now the proud owner of a blue F150.

  • You can barely reach the pedal, but you make do.  However, you do not watch where you are going.  We are working on this!
  • We are beating the heat by swimming in mammy & pappy's pool!
  • You sneak into sister's room and play with things you're not suppose to.  I can foresee this being a problem in the future:)
  • We've been spending as much time as we can with Zack and Case before they have to go back to school.

  • We also watched Case play ball!  You were way more interested in the cheetos and popsicles:)  You did yell a "let's go" one time though...
  • You no longer feel the need to fight me when I brush your teeth.  Sometimes it's the little things in life that make all the difference.  Thank you, dude.
  • Speaking of teeth, you have 16 of them!  Your upper canines came in a few weeks ago. 
  • Ever so often, you will pose and smile for momma's camera phone.

  • You're still a little techie.
  • Brother will watch youtube with you, in hopes that you will share your snacks!
  • We have been in full blown getting sister's nursery done mode!  
  • You don't mind too much though....  So long as we let you ride in the car at Lowe's.
  • Cousin's coming into town this week!!  Here's a pic of the last time he came:)
  • Ya'll are 3 months apart and pretty much the same size.  And both have heads full of red hair!
  • We are working on forming sentences.  You can say almost any word, but have a little trouble putting it all together.  
  • You still love for us to read to you.
  • Here you are at church this morning

  • The other day, I handed you a peppermint patty and this is the response I got.

  • You are one of the sweetest things on God's green earth.
  • This was in your fortune cookie today.
  • It is so you.
  • Love you my little acorn:)
