Landon is 16 Months Old!

Landon, today you are 16 months old! You have begun that stage where you are practically changing and learning new things every day! You are starting to say more words which is going to help so much. You've always gotten frustrated easily when we don't understand your grunting and fussing! You learned the word "out" the other day because all you ever want to do it go play outside! You can say several other words like ball, bird, baby, byebye, all done, thank you and of course mama and dada. You like to try to brush your hair, your teeth, put a q-tip in your ear, blow your nose and take your own temperature. You are quite the silly little boy and laugh constantly. You are still the main instigator in everything and know how to torture your big sister like a little brother should. You love to chase her around and tackle, but we are working on the hitting thing. You are still very sweet and loving, and love to give good slobbery kisses with a wide open mouth. You are still a momma's boy but you are getting better around others. If I am not around, you are perfect and play very independently! You still take 2 naps a day and sleep almost 12 hours without a peep. Bathtime is your favorite and we have to pull you out all wrinkly and screaming. You NEVER want to get out of the bathtub, regardless of how long you've been in there! The water is usually cold by the time you get out but you don't care!

You have slimmed down a lot, I know you are a little over 22 pounds. You run, run, run all day long and don't take the time to eat as much as you used to! You constantly have places to go and things to do. You're mostly in 18 month clothes (with a few 12 month ones still fitting). You love to eat everything...I can't think of anything you don't like! You are looking like a little boy even more now. You have 11 teeth, going on 17. Yes, you are getting 6 at once...right now. Including molars. You are hanging in there like a champ, though. All 6 are about to break through the skin any day now. Your hair has gotten long suddenly and I can actually put it in a ponytail..yikes. As sad as it will be to cut off the baby curls we are going to have to very soon! You are quite the clumsy kid and it's rare that you don't have a bruise or scratch or carpet somewhere on your face. Especially when you get tired, it's rare that you don't fall every 5 feet when running. You are so silly and just laugh about it.

We had a first yesterday at your cousin's birthday party-someone actually thought you were a girl. A lady kept calling you "she" and "her" several times, even though you were wearing boy clothes and have short hair. I know you are a pretty boy and have perfect little features like your daddy, but there is NOTHING feminine about you! You are extremely masculine looking  and even act ALL BOY. I'm not quite sure what she was thinking! I guess there is a first time for everything. Maybe it's because you have an obsession with vacuums and like to sweep. You were sweeping yesterday...haha. Although she didn't see that.
You honestly keep getting more and more fun everyday! I love it that you and your sister are so close. The older you get, the more stuff we can do and places we can go all together! It's going to be a blast. I love you so much and am so privileged to watch you grow up. You are our sweet baby boy!
