Nineteen Months . . .


Ollie has been with us for nineteen months.  He’s busier than ever.  I need to keep a record of his accomplishments since he’s adding to his arsenal almost daily.  At nineteen months he:

  • Doesn’t want to sit in a high chair anymore, preferring to kneel on a big chair instead.
  • Feeds himself, making a colossal  mess EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
  • Stands at the back door and calls out “squirrel?” while looking for his favorite back yard friends.
  • Wants to watch Blues Clues and talks about letters, mail, clues and Steve all day.
  • Knows that all the adults in our house are “Dada” and all the children are “Hannah”.
  • Clings to my legs whenever he thinks I’m going to leave to go somewhere.
  • Loves real doggies and kitties {aack!} and playing with stuffed animals.
  • Can build a very legit lego or block tower, which he will promptly destroy.
  • Says lots of words, like juice, milk, want, please, love you, ball, uh-oh, no no, yes, good, night night, dog, cat, bath, up, down, in, off and on.
  • Makes funny faces like his Daddy.
  • Joins us for prayers on his knees with his arms folded.

We all love Ollie!  He is the light in our home.  The Hubby and I sit and stare at him while he sleeps, marveling that God saw fit to send us one more little spirit to care for.  He’s a gem!

19 months? The time is just flying past in a blur!

I love the last picture with the spoon to Ollie's temple. He looks like a mystic using his special spoon to predict the future.

Obviously you're doing lots of things right; he seems completely healthy and happy to me!

He's got me hooked around his little finger.

Oh I bet he is so cute when he says Squirel too! My kids say it a lot too, after watching UP. He's a handsome little guy.
