twenty something

harper is 20 months old already and growing up like nobody's business. he loves stuffed animals and dolls, and playing with his ball and the little play kitchen. he prepares me meals of wood and felt food all day long! he likes to blow kisses and each night he has to tuck the girls into bed and turn off their light.

he still signs quite a bit but he is suddenly starting to talk... a lot.

here are some of the cute things he has started saying this week::
:: more
:: please- pleeeeeesh with a big, toothy grin.
:: ball
:: he has said mama or mommy, and daddy for awhile now but he recently started calling out MOM!! when he needs me.
:: apple- abble
:: banana- nana
:: bath- baf! said while enthusiastically signing bath.
:: esme'-- e-may or may may, or MAY! MAY!
:: mama's milk- mum mums

he is still snuggly and sweet and kisses us all the time. he truly is the light of our lives and we love each day with him. that little nose, those big, brown eyes, those soft blond curls. i could stare at that precious face all day long. and sometimes i do...

Erika he is such a sweet sweet little boy. I cannot believe he is 20 months already. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing you a meal and your birth tub was set up awaiting his arrival.

So cute! Logan is only 4 mos ahead of him and it is amazing how fast they grow at this age! It blows me away every time I look at my baby to realise that he isn't a baby anymore...

Your son is beautiful! Happy 20 mos!

my baby is about that age and suddenly has a lot to say. isn't it amazing how one day they're virtually mute (but still noisy, somehow) and seemingly the next day they're communicating in english?
