With all the commotion of the holiday weekend...I forgot to mention one of the most important parts of the day---my little sweety turned 16 months old ON July 4th! In just 8 more months, it's the big 2! Yes, that may seem like forever to some of you...but to me, it will be here with the blink of an eye.
What are you up to at 16 months Gavo???? Well....
1.) You love the word "duck" and you say it perfectly, absolutely perfectly. You enjoy rubber ducks in your bath and more often than not, you'll have one of those ducks accompany you outside of your bath too!
2.) Your newest fave animal sounds is "baaa" and you can recognize a sheep immediately and when you do...I always here a big "baaa". You recognize many animals. But you're quick to announce the sheep and the duck.
3.) You LOVE to play with the computer mouse. Mommy couldn't count the times a day I have to say "no" or "stop" to you messing with the mouse. I'm guessing that's where you learned the lovely word "OP" that you yell at me from time to time. Unfortunately, when you yell "OP" at me...I can only turn my cheek and smile a little. It really tickles me that you say it with such force and you really believe that because you've said it...I must listen. :)
4.) You also love to run to your room and slam the door behind you. I get flash forwards of you as a teenager every time you do this. Also brings a lil' smile to mama's face. You bring a smile to my face always, daily, hourly, minutely, secondly.
5.) One thing that doesn't make me smile...are those nice little gifts I find swimming in the tub with you (wink). 2 different occasions now...I've left the room for maybe a minute, and returned to find you swimming with some new buddies. And boy oh boy, you have no problem splashing around in that mirky water...kicking, laughing, rolling...ahhhhhh, the life of a mommy :-)).
6.) You are known to throw a few tantrums here and there. Yep, our angel, throws himself on the floor, kicks, squeals, wines. Mommy and daddy find that ignoring you is the best thing to do...when you realize no one is watching you get up and go about your business.
7.) The newest thing mommy says to you on most days..."Gavin, you only get one head, you better take care of it!" Why do I say this??? You're constantly falling and bumping your head, throwing yourself back and bumping your head...it's ALWAYS the head. In his case, Hair DOES NOT equal CUSHION...haha. It's fluffy and all, but doesn't make the fall any better.
8.) One of the quickest things to upset you...when daddy goes outside without you. If ANYONE goes out the door, you think you MUST go with them, or life as you know it..is over.
9.) Your appetite has been awesome the last few days. You've had more of everything, more often, and you've even had a HAMBURGER on 2 different occasions. Now, that's impressive! You're also loving graham crackers...those are a new fave.
10.) Why the title??? (Mama's Georgia Peach) Well...we're traveling through Georgia right now...it's 11:27 pm...and you're in the backseat...snoozing away. Mommy and daddy love you...to the moon and back...more than all the stars in the sky. Sweetest of dreams to our baby boy.
