What else, the big gender reveal is only a few days away gaaahhh!!! Pretty soon we'll know if we're Team Pink or Team Blue. By the way as the family goes we have a large majority in favor of pink including myself & HL. Daddy is going with blue though so we'll see...
HL is growing like a weed and his brain is soaking EVERYTHING in at warp speed. I am amazed at how much he understands now. Oh and have I mentioned yet that this kid is a wild man... two words... CONSTANT MOTION. He is never still, no seriously, never. He is not the type to sit down and "play" instead he runs around the entire house finding ways to entertain himself all. day. long. Olympic Toddler Chasing has become my life ;)
Highlights: He is officially done with the bottle, we took it away cold turkey at about 11 months with no complaints. No more formula or purees. Still in size 3 diapers. He's about 21 lbs.
Favorite things to say: Mama, Dada, Uh-Oh, and Lights. His new word is Lights aka "aughts" and he will point them out to you EVERYwhere you go, especially every morning when he wakes up and sees the Christmas tree. His hands go up to the sky as if he's praising the lord and he screams AUGHTS!!! He also likes to go "vroom vroom" with his Hummer toys.
Favorite things to eat: He is a fickle eater. This kid will eat pretty much anything you give him it's just a matter of timing. He may adore bacon or cottage cheese one minute and nearly vomit it on you another time. He is a carb-a-holic, any bread products go over very well. PBJ's, chicken nuggets, fish sticks, cheese and GRAPES are our go to foods, he will always eat them. Seriously this kid and grapes... he has them at every meal. And milkie, well that goes without saying, he adores his milkie in his sippy.
What else: He helped cut down his first Christmas tree. He constantly points to pink when we ask him whether the new baby is a boy or girl... apparently he wants a sister, we'll remind him of this later in life. I am just amazed at how much he understands these days. We can ask him "where is Grinch-y" and he will grab his Grinch toy, ask him where my nose is and he will thump you in the nose, he knows what his ball is and loves to get pelted with it by Daddy. And of course my little drummer boy still bangs on everything.
