Almost 20 months old!

Kristian, what are you up to these days...? You will be 20 months old in 10 days!  You are an independent little guy and you know what you want and won't stop until you get it! 

You now ask for specific foods you want. At breakfast today you asked for cheese, yesterday you wanted apples and bananas. At lunch yesterday you asked for avocado and always ask for more and more of the foods you like.

You mastered going up and down the stairs on your own but you are determined to learn how to go up and down without holding on! You get brave sometimes and look at me with a 'see I can do it' face. If I say you will fall, you you will say  Noooooooooo. Haha our conversations are so fun these days especially when you yell at me if I'm not giving in to your demands haha! I wouldn't have it any other way!

You're a fun toddler that loves to play and laugh and of course you have the toddler bossiness of wanting things your way. You are so cute so it's really hard to not just give in! 

You love your cousins but get a little jealous if mommy and daddy are playing with them too!

We cleared out all the older baby like toys and brought in new ones. You love balls,blocks, cars and puzzles. 

You absolutely love the water!! We need some warmer days tho! 

I love you soooo much!!

Sun, fun and blueberry pie!

Today started out dark and rainy, but by the afternoon the sun was shining and it turned out to be a nice warm day!

Baby k loves picking those dandelions, kicking and throwing balls playing on the slide and just exploring the backyard. Of course he would try and pick up ants and put dirt in his mouth ha! Oh boy!

We spent some of the afternoon and evening playing soccer in the backyard with his new net that he had got for his birthday last year!

After hours of playing outside we ended our day with some blueberry pie. Yum!

Just the beginning of fun in the sun

The weather this week has been awesome! Since baby K hit 18 months he has been changing so much! It's amazing to watch him develop. He cracks me up too, always being silly with us. I play with flash cards to help him identify things. He knows what they all are now and will get the car card and bring it to his toy cars and the best one was when he chased Zoe saying ki-ca (kitty cat) showing her the card of the cat ha! Like this is you Zoe! Ha!

He also has been telling me when he goes to the bathroom! He says peepee but really doing the other, but he actually tells me which is amazing!

We have been having fun outdoors this week. I am really enjoying more than ever where we live. We have a park right across the street where baby k can run around getting all his energy out.

I also got some backyard toys this week too!

I'm excited for this nice weather and summer time! Bring on the sunshine!

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!!
