My sweet baby boy is no longer a baby.
18 months old.
Where did the time go?
It still feels like yesterday we brought him home.
Ryan and I looked at each other and said, "What do we do now?"
Well we must of done something right because Oliver has grown to be this awesome child.
Every day he amazes me more.
Currently his favorite food is macaroni and cheese. We eat Kraft in this house. I know, I know spare the lecture - Its not real cheese. But it is delicious. And until I can find a homemade recipe that I actually like, we are sticking with the blue box.
He will go into the cupboard and pull out the box and says "Teese, Teese" over and over. He will bring it to myself or Ryan. Show it to the cats. Wrap it up in his blanket. He loves it as much as his Momma and Dada.
Speaking of blankets. They are his favorite. His best friends. They go everywhere he goes. From the minute he wakes up, until the time he goes to bed B1 and B2 are right by his side.
He talks all day long. Mostly jibberish but he will occasionally throw some real words out here and there. Check out his ever growing list here.
His favorite word is Dada. He says it all day. Everyday. Dada this and Dada that. Mostly because I say Dada a lot. I tell him when Dada is calling us, or when Dada pulls in the driveway. Ask me how many times he says Momma. And I'll tell you zero. That's alright, he doesn't need to call me anything because he knows I am right here. Always.
Favorite vegetable. Hands down Lima Beans. I'm not sure anyone actually likes Lima beans. But my child loves them.
Favorite fruit. Bananas. That has been a constant favorite from the very beginning. He has loved them from the first day he tried them. And now, I have to speed race through the produce section at the supermarket because he will lose his mind if we don't stop and pick up bananas.
Maybe he's a monkey in disguise.
I love this person he is growing up to be. He is so kind and always willing to share. He loves other kids and people in general. But I feel like its all going by so fast. Like I went to bed one night with a newborn and I woke up to a toddler. I'm afraid I will blink and he will be asking for the car keys.
Time please slow down...just a little.
