I need to update and write things down on here before I forget everything that Isaac is doing and saying at 18 months. He is such a funny little boy with his big personality coming through more each day. He definitely keeps us laughing and definitely (as they say) keeps us on our toes these days.
Here are some of the things he is doing/saying/loving at 18 months:
-For "mama" he says "maa-maaaah" It makes us laugh because he sounds like a little Yankee saying it. Pretty cute. Hope I can record him saying it before he says it differently.
- He is obsessed with animals, especially farm animals. He loves to read books about them and point to them and make all the animal noises. So far he knows what the lion says (that was his first animal noise), the cow says, the dog, sheep, goat, elephant, bird, duck, horse (his latest), chicken, and probably some others I'm forgetting but that's a lot of animals. ;)
- He loves to sit in your lap and have you read books to him...he could go through a ton of books just sitting there
- He can now say "ella" when talking about sissy and he can also say "olaf" anytime you point to him in a book- kind of funny
-He started walking at 17 months!!! :)))
-Loves his bath times with sissy
-Loves when daddy comes home. He and sissy will run to the door to get to him
-He loves his sissy and anytime she is crying, he always goes up to her and gives her hugs. He also loves to wake her up by getting on her bed and laying on top of her and giving her big hugs for a long time
-He knows what it means to "go eat" and will walk over to his highchair to eat
-He loves to cuddle his sleepsack and has to sleep with his little animals (a horse and cow)
-He loves to be outside, of course ;)
-He gives kisses now but mainly to his sister
-He also became a big brother just before turning 18 months and he loves his little brother. He loves to hold and hug him and also pat his head ;) and give him some kisses... he is pretty good at being gentle with him but also has a little bit of jealously too whenever Ella holds him or mommy/daddy
Here are some pictures of my sweet and wild little boy who is no longer the baby and feels so big to me now....
