19 Months

On Sunday, Chase will be 19 months. We can't believe it. He is very much a little boy now and not a baby. He has his babyish moments, but he is fast becoming a big boy. It is so fun to see him grow and develop. Here some of his new developments.

-He copies many of the words that we say. His vocabulary is getting large. My favorite new words "apple juice." We have only given him juice about 5 times in his life, and he asks for it everyday.

-He loves to eat salsa. He also likes to say that word.

-He loves to pray for "papa" and "ben-ben." He loves his grandpas (he has 4 altogether 2 of which are great-grandpas). He also loves his Uncle Benjamin.

-He cries when daddy leaves for work or an outing. He is so attached to his dad.

-He loves the song "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands."

-He doesn't like being left in the church nursery.

-He asks for "mama" and "milk" every morning when he wakes up.

-He tells me clothes are "cute" as we shop. :)

-He loves to hide in clothes racks when we are shopping.

-Balls are his all-time favorite toys. I don't need to buy any other toys. He loves to throw things. We are working on just throwing balls.

-He loves to hang on bars at the park. He can hang for about 3o seconds without letting go. He is super strong.

-He is a fabulous napper. He takes 2 naps a day still. He rarely ever complains. What a blessing.

-He weighs 26 pounds and is 33.5 inches.

-His burn is healed and doesn't wear the pressure sock anymore.

-He is the most amazing blessing we have ever been given!

Tagged x 2

I have been tagged twice. People must think I am quite quirky :)

Here are the rules:

Mention the rules on your blog.

Tell about six unspectacular quirks of yours.

Tag six bloggers by linking them.

1. I am a major people watcher. I would find it fun to just go the airport to watch people. Strange I know, but people are fascinating.

2. I shower at least once a day, and Chase gets at least 1 bath a day. Sometimes more. Hygiene is of utmost importance to me.

3. The thought of having any sort of hair on the bottom of my feet grosses me out. I have a phobia. I will not walk on my bathroom floor with wet or damp feet. I will always be on a rug of some sort.

4.Watching movies and TV is a sleep aid for me. When I can't go to sleep, I just turn a movie on or watch a TV show.

5. I can do a lot of "boy" push ups.

6.I love old movies and television shows.

The tough thing is that I don't really know of 6 other bloggers. I will give it a whirl.

Katie, Trisha Thomas, Melissa, Shiela, and Chrisy Myers. I don't know any other bloggers that haven't been tagged already.
