Jonathan at 18 months


Yesterday Jonathan was officially 18 months. And he is quite the little boy. He continually keeps me on my toes with his penchant for exploring. He is just now becoming more verbal. He doesn't have very many words yet, but I feel like his vocabulary is on the brink of exploding. The last couple of days he has added a new word each day.

Here are his words so far:
Mama
Dadda
hello (how-o)
milk (which also sounds like mama)
up
hot
mine (my!) (hmm, wonder who taught him this one!)
night-night (na-na)
light (lide)
slide (lide)
elmo
ball
bird
balloon (ba-oon!)
apple
all gone or all done
ride
eye
again (eye-en!)
bye bye
a bite
help
walk

He is also becoming a master at various animal sounds. His favorite is the elephant. He loves to cover his mouth with a cup or cardboard tube (or really anything at all) and make a loud "wooooo" sound. The cat and the cow still sound pretty much the same. But his roar is quite good, as is his quack. It's like the deepest most boyish quack I've ever heard. And whenever he sees a dog he gets really excited and pronounces "woof, woof!"

What a cutie! It's hard to believe it's already been 18 months since his birth. He still has that twinkle in his eye and his mischievous little grin. I think you're going to be wearing running shoes for a long time. =)

Yep,cutest quack ever. He also loves his books and is a real snuggler.

He's looking less like a baby and more like a little boy!
