18 months

My little guy isn't so little anymore. Geez. And, I have to say, I love this age SO MUCH! So many new words, expressions, actions. So much love. So much silliness.

I knew I was never a big baby person. I love them, and I think they're wonderful; they smell sweet and are so needy and cuddly and fresh. But the toddler age--it's AMAZING! I love watching how Latham learns things. He knows all his body parts; he says about 20 words; how he says "Choo-choo" is THE CUTEST THING EVER. And that's just Adam's opinion, too.

My Latham is the most perfect being I could ever imagine. I can't believe I gave birth to such a wonderful bundle. Of course, he can be naughty. But he even looks cute (and knows it!) when he has to go to his time-out corner. And, wow, he just is doing so much. He's so athletic! He loves hide-and-seek! He loves tickling and being tickled! He loves talking to relatives on FaceTime! He loves taking my phone, holding it to his ear, and say "Hey!" He loves cleaning up toys! He loves Oliver! He loves reading!

And, he sleeps. LIKE THROUGH THE NIGHT. FOR SEVERAL MONTHS! For me, that is the biggest mystery. He went from helpless, sleepless infant to interested, sleepless baby to ambling, kinda sleeping toddler to THIS PERFECT MAN! Whhhhhaaaaaaatttt? Seriously, when the sleeping-through-the-night thing took hold, it changed everything for me. Geez.

To conclude: SLEEP IS AMAZING. My son absolutely rocks. Life is wild, but my Latham makes life look (and feel) GOOD!  :)

 Baby to Toddler...amazing!
