16 Month Update!

Maddox, you are 16 months old today!  So what are you up to? (I wrote this on the 18th but i’m a little behind posting)

You weigh 31 lbs and are wearing 2t clothing and size 6 shoe

Your vocabulary has not expanded much but you do a lot of jabbering and I know  that you know exactly what you are saying.  Bud-dy and Ball is still your favorite words.

You love the book Go Dog Go and recently we discovered that you are fascinated with Psalty the Singing Songbook.  (This is a DVD my sister handed down to me that my niece Tori loved as a toddler)

Nana, Papaw and Mamaw are on the top of your list of people you don’t won’t to be away from.  You cry when you have to leave them.  Daddy comes in next….you are such a Daddy’s boy.  I come in last….I have a hard time excepting that until I think about how happy I am that you love being with your grandparents and that you adore your Dad.  I want you to have close relationships with all of our family.  I know you love being with your Mommy and I’m the one you will always want when it’s time to go to sleep, when you don’t feel well, and just need that extra babying and loving!

You have become such a good little helper.  You love to throw things away for us….you tried to throw away all my canned goods the other day and I had to dig them out of the trash.  You help us put clothes in the dryer and today you tried to sweep the kitchen and all the cabinets and appliances…it was too cute.

You have started feeding yourself with a fork and spoon.  You still have a little trouble getting the food on there but you sure know how to get it to your mouth!  You eat just about everything.  Your favorite foods are still Pizza, Bananas and Grapes.

Your favorite toys are your Lightning McQueen Car, Buddy the puppet dog, the little football I caught at the High School Football Game, and you love sleeping with your stuffed monkey! 

You love taking a bath.  When we ask you if you want a bath, you run to the stairs and start going up them!

You love for us to chase you around the house.

I’m amazed at how much you understand.  I will tell you to do something and you just know what i’m saying….amazing!  You shake your head Yes a lot and it is too  cute….it’s like you know exactly when to do it because it always is after we ask you a yes or no question!

There is so much more that i’m sure i will think of later but that is a good overview for now…my baby is growing up!  God sure knew what he was doing when he designed children because as much as I miss you being a baby…you just keep getting funner!!  I’m sure that is how it will be for the rest of your life….I will miss the old stages but the new stages will always bring new joys that keeps me living in the moment!!
