My boy turned 16 months today!
He's growing up SO fast. I am constantly doing double-takes, catching myself, in awe of just how much he's grown. Every single day, there's something new. He's amazing.
Here's some of what Ezra has been up to lately...
-He loves to chase. At the park, at the store, down the sidewalk...anywhere. He squeals with excitement whilst grinning and making fists, then runs after me. It kills me dead.
-He tried (and loved!) salmon! Jordan picked some up, on a whim, and Ez loved it! In case you're wondering, it was wild-caught, Sockeye salmon.
-Those teeth that were driving him mad this past month? 3 or 4 of them have clearly come in (it's hard to tell - he's not too excited about my finger in his mouth.). There's still 2 or 3 that are hovering...just waiting to come in. I think the worst is over, for this round :)
-Playdates with his friends are getting to be more and more fun! He even held hands & walked around with his friend Claire! Seriously, it was crazy-cute. They hugged and held hands and just made us melt. Adorable!
-Ba! is still his word for bath, Mamama and Dadada are still works in progress. He's playing around with different sounds, feeling them out, and taking his time.
-His current arsenal of signs? Milk, dog, more, sleepy, please, water, all done, bye.
-He still loves to give high-fives and blow kisses.
-The bike is now something that is just to be played with and no longer ridden. Screaming fits happen if we attempt to put him on it for a bike-ride :(
-His stroller has come back into play, thankfully, as a means of transportation - not just something for him to push.
-The zoo is more fun each time we go!
-Swinging on the swing set at a playground is at the top of the "Ezra's favorite Things" list. He also goes down the slides (the little ones) all by himself!
-He's absolutely amazing. And I tell him every single day.
Here's some pictures:
This should be titled, Pouty Ez.
Such a big boy :)
Getting him to look in the general direction of the camera was difficult.
This is him signing Milk. He does it with two hands sometimes...as if he's yelling ;-)
After reviewing this picture, we both decided it's time for a haircut. Just a trim (again), but some of that mop top has got to be thinned out.
Such a cutie.
Look Ma! I can touch the ceiling!
16 Months! Yay!
