Eighteen Months!

Our sweet baby is eighteen months of age today, and he got to wear some autumn clothes, as it was quite chilly. He took a great nap in the car while Mommy and Big Bro went to mass, and then he spent the rest of the day playing at home and getting lots of cuddles from all three of us.

Here are some of O's favorites:

Favorite foods: bananas, waffles with syrup for dipping

Favorite television shows: Little Einsteins, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Third and Bird, Henry Hugglemonster - basically anything on Disney Jr.

Favorite Books: his small farm-themed board books; his wooden Melissa & Doug ABC puzzle book; Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?; 101 First Words (from Big Bro); The Big Shiny Sparkly Book of Things That Go; Where Is God?; his Lift and Look Nativity puzzle book; My Best Word Book by Richard Scarry in Ukrainian; Danny and the Dinosaur; and he just discovered One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish last night and loves it. He loves to read, and he reads all day. In fact, he would not relinquish a reindeer hide-and-seek book and is reading it aloud in bed right now!

Favorite music: He prefers to listen to classical music, but he is a bit more of a rocker when he turns his electric guitar to auto-play while he jams on his red Schoenhut piano. He is even sometimes moved to stand on his bench like Jerry Lee Lewis!

Favorite toys: his Fisher Price Little People zoo and any puzzle

He is every bit as perfect for our family and as wanted as he was the day he was born, and we love him.
