Fast like cars or trikes

Ha! It really cracks me up how fast baby K makes a run for it every chance he gets. Yesterday he ran through toys r us, stoping only a second to touch a toy or two. Running is the name of the game. But... we bought him a Trike... I'm not sure if he is going to like it since we can't hold him down these days but it turns into a tricycle for next year so it's ok. I put it together tonight. So when he wakes up tomorrow morning it'll be ready to ride!

Baby K's new favorite toys are cars. He loves rolling them all through the house.

This morning we went to a Early years play group (a free service that is offered in our area) baby K had a great time. It's really close to my sisters house so we dropped by for lunch! Baby E is growing so fast too! She'll be 1 month next week! She's adorable!!!!

A little toddler life

I can't believe how time is just flying! Baby K will be 18 months old next week. Our big 18 month check up is next week too. I get emotional at times, ok a lot of the time seeing him change so much before my eyes. Emotional and happy at the same time. Everything he did today well everything he does everyday just melts my heart. I don't want to forget any of it! So I'm hoping to blog more and more about the little things and new things he does so I can come back and read it over and over haha yes I'm that crazy mom.

Today we ran out of baby K's favorite fruit. He loves blueberries and today he asked for them "Bru" he calls them. We go through 3-4 packages a week just for him! He kept asking and asking until finally he was satisfied with a apple. He's communicating much more, asking specifically for things he wants more and more. Seeing him change everyday really is incredible.

This morning we went to visit my little niece. I'm teaching Kris to be nice to the babies since lately he has been hitting if a baby touches his stuff. I told him to be nice to baby E and kiss her and he was totally happy and kissed her and called her baby a million times ha! Whew!

We had a fun day today and we even baked a little. Baby K watched me make us cookies. He always wants whatever food he sees, so I had to entertain him with a little sugar and flour so I could bake ha!

Today's fun pics below ;)

Toddler on the run

My almost 18 month old is a little runner. The second his feet touch the ground he's running! We are having a slow start to spring so we aren't playing outside as much as we would like to yet. We need better weather! Today we went to a playland to run around! Kris loves it. He loves running all around the place and getting in and out of the toy cars and toy house. He loves playing with cars. He calls them beep beeps ha!
Soon the weather will be nicer and we will be running in the park everyday!

Family party, baby k danced the day away

Yesterday it was my aunt's 80th birthday party!

She is visiting from Italy and her son threw her a big party.

It was soo nice to see all our family. We don't get to see each-other as often as we'd all wish!

I was little worried about how my little toddler was going to behave. But he was so good. He sat and had lunch then was sooo happy when he got to run around and dance like crazy.

I spoke to cousins and aunts about the toddler life and they all had great advice. Firstly let them be toddlers!!! Ha! I loved hearing all their advice and stories about their kids. It really makes you feel normal about what you are thinking and doing.

How cute are these littles dancing!

Baby... I mean toddler

I can't tell you how happy I am to see the temperature for the week!

I'm excited to be outdoors! And with a toddler full of energy he is excited too!

Little K is changing sooo much! He is certainly not my baby anymore but a full out toddler. Showing his independence everyday. I'm not going to lie. It's breaking my heart. I'm excited and happy seeing him grow and learn new things every minute! But it also makes my heart ache a little. He's growing soo fast!

It's almost unbelievable that last year at this time he was still nursing all day and just starting solids, babbling away, still in my arms and still waking at night to nurse.

Now he's eating everything and always begging for more, babbling and talking, and running so fast not wanting to be held and sleeping all night. Last year I couldn't even imagine my little boy the way he is today. It's amazing, a really amazing feeling.

Where do the days go! I need to to slow down just a bit!

I love my little guy soooo much!!

Breakfast out with a friend

This morning baby K and I met up with friends for breakfast.

The two little ones were so cute! They were funny giving each-other toddler attitude and watching each-other closely.

They both were so good eating their breakfast but of course had their moments of toddlerness to make sure we paying attention ha!

Happy Easter! And 17 months old!

Happy Easter! Baby K had so much fun with his cousins today. We did a Easter egg hunt and boy did he bring home a lot of chocolate and gifts from the family.

Baby K is now 17 months old! My baby! You are growing sooo fast!

You are 20lbs! You are still in size 4 diapers and in 12-18 months clothes.

You sleep about 14 hours a day, usually 10-11 through the night straight and 1-2 naps during the day.

You have 10 teeth! And 2 more molars poking their way out!

You are speaking a lot more every day! saying 15 words we understand and a bunch of your own words in baby talk. Oh and can't forget when you repeat us, that's always shocking and funny to us.

You want to copy everything we do!
You catch on so quickly and amaze us everyday!

You are a sweet boy that loves hugging and kissing us but you also show your attitude when you don't get your way, Drama!

The weather is getting nicer and we are looking forward to taking you out to many places to explore.

You had a fun weekend running around to visit family and playing in the park.
