17 months

I'm late again but better late then never.

This month you have perfected the word NO.  You use it all the time.  For the most part, you use it correctly.  When asked a question, you answer NO.  But sometimes you say it so much, that you says NO for things that you really means Yes. 

You are getting 5 new teeth this month which brings us to a total of 15 I think.  4 have broken through but you won't let me see what the other one is doing.  So of course this means no sleep for anyone for the past month.  Come to think of it, I don't remember the last time we all got a straight week of uninterrupted sleep.  How did 2 people who love to sleep get a baby that has such problems with it?  Not fair. :-(

You have started not going back to sleep in the middle of the night unless we put you in our bed which has us questioning our parenting on this one.  What is the right thing to do?  Stay up until he goes back to sleep and be zombies all day or give in and let him pass right out in our bed and everyone gets some sleep?

You are talking a mile a minute now.  I don't know what you are saying half the time but you are saying little sentences of gibberish all the time.  You've picked up a lot of new words.

We practice saying our ABCs.  He can go up to G and then he gets bored and stops repeating them.

I am teaching you to say I love you.

You are still a fickle eater.

You like to build towers of blocks now.  You can build a 10 block tower and then look for the different animals on each one when mama asks you where they are.

You still have such a sweet personality.

You know what you want and how you want it.

Your favorite thing is still reading books.  Although, you have been playing with your other toys more often.  You can play by yourself now which give us a little spare time.

Everywhere we go you call different people daddy for some reason.  You love saying his and Sadie's names.  You even call people on the tv daddy.

It is so fun to watch you grow and explore our little world.  I love you more everyday.
