London 14 months old

Yesterday, you turned 14 months old. We officially have a toddler on our hands. Everyday I am amazed by what you are doing, what you understand and what you are saying! Yes, you are a chatterbox! You have learned at least a dozen more words this past month. Your latest obsession is pointing out animals in our picture book and then making the noise associated with each of them. Or, all I have to do is ask you what they say. You know puppy, sheep, cow, snake, alligator, elephant (my favourite), monkey and lion. You also hold up, and say "one" when we ask you how old you are.  It's seriously the cutest thing ever!

You still sleep with mommy every night. We (I) gave up on your crib, for good, about three weeks ago. Cosleeping works best. You aren't the greatest sleeper. You have recently started boycotting naps on the weekends. I think it's because mommy and daddy are home and you want to spend time with us! You talk, move, and cry in your sleep and usually wake up a few times a night. You've been cutting two bottom teeth lately which is making for some rough nights too. I love having you next to me to cuddle during those rough moments but I love when I get a solid stretch of straight sleep! I feel like a new person! 

Amazingly, I'm still nursing you. I thought it would be tough with work but it's not. Those minutes together in the morning, before we leave the bed, and in the evening, before you fall asleep are my favourite! There is an end date I have in mind but, either way, I know I will be done by March as I'm hoping to go away for a few days. If you wean sooner, that's okay too. I didn't realize I would love it as much as I do. 

You love to play with Daddy. You are definitely a Daddy's boy. You grab his hand and take him to the playroom and follow him around after work until he picks you up. You have also started calling mommy "daddy" but I'm pretty sure you're doing it to be funny because you always laugh after we say "say mommy" and you yell "dada!" Cue the giggles... Your favourite game by far is "I'm going to get you!" You scream as you run away from whichever one is chasing you and then scramble to jump in the other person's arms. It usually ends with someone being tickled!

You have so much fun with nana during the week days and she is teaching you so much. We are so blessed to have her. 

You have such a great personality. You are funny and I love how you scrunch up your nose when you laugh. You

 can be a trouble maker and don't listen when we say "no" (you usually laugh) and have already broken three ornaments off the tree. 

You sometimes hit too. You always follow it up with a kiss but it's something we will have to watch. You rarely cry and are usually really happy (unless you're tired and whiny!) 

You are in size 18-24/2T clothes and size 5 diapers. I would guess you're around 28-29 pounds now. You wear size 6.5 shoes!!! 

I love you so much baby boy. Thank you for being you and for making my life so mix. Better. You always make me smile and you warm my heart everyday. 

Love Mommy
