Brody is 17 months!

Our big boy.  You are a barrel of fun and it so neat how you fit into our family more and more.  We love how you try to be like the big kids and you even try to talk to let us know what you are thinking or what you want.  We all have you watch you like a hawk because you are into everything. 

Here are some things you are doing this month:

  • You wear a size 4 diaper, you are 23 pounds, you have 12 teeth and are about to get 4 more
  • You wear size 12-18 month clothes and you can even fit into your size 9 month jeans, this is nuts considering we have big babies and Blake and Sydney would have been in 2T by this age, you are our smallest baby by far, guess it's all that running around you are doing
  • Hats, bats and baseballs are you favorite toys.  You swing a bat so well for your age and daddy says you bat left-handed even though it looks like you are right-handed.  You throw anything you can find, even the landscape rocks.  You threw one at the back of mommy's head, ouch!!
  • You love to open up the dishwasher and stand on it trying to get utensils out
  • You started to climb and you can get up on a chair, the couch, even the kitchen table and desk in Blake's room
  • You absolutely LOVE being outside.  One mention of outside and you look for your crocs and stand by the door.
  • When we tell you to sit down, you listen (mainly to put shoes on), now sitting in a high chair when we go out to eat is a completely different story!!
  • You love suckers and if you see one in sight, you let us know how bad you want one
  • You light up when we have family jam out sessions to Justin Beiber's "Baby" song.  You dance and smile and bop you head, it's sooo cute!
  • When we sing "Stop Talking Bout", you say, "Blah, Blah, Blah"!
  • Favorite words of yours are: stop, ball, hat, momma, dadda, Bub (for Bubba/Blake), school, outside, moon, sky, up,
  • You let us know you want something when you say "uh, uh, uh"!
  • If you think something is cool, you say, "Ooohhh"
  • Bathtime is not your most favorite.  You don't sit down anymore and you cry the whole time, until you get out
  • You are terrified if water is on the floor since you don't want to fall
  • You are starting to run
  • If Mr. Moon is out, you get soooo excited
  • You have become so interested in reading books right before naptime, we call it Rock and Read.
  • When I ask you what a dog says, you bark like a dog and you point up in the air when you see an airplane
We can't see what new and exciting things will be happening in the months ahead our little monkey!
