eighteen months

This guy is the cutest. 

And he's 18 months old today. Can you believe it?? I can't. 
Or maybe I can. He's been a busy little fella. 

: :  Eighteen Month Stats  : :

Height: 32 1/2 inches {55th percentile}
Weight: 23 pounds 6 ounces {45th percentile}

: :  Loves : :

 - Thomas the Train {aka "Tommy" at our house}. Jake is nutso for him. All the time. His first and last word each day is "Tommy". 
 - Monkeys. He finds them everywhere, even when you don't see them at first. And he makes the most adorable monkey noise on the planet every time. {video here, you're welcome in advance}.
 - Sleeping. This kiddo still sleeps 12 hours at night and takes a solid two naps a day {praise Jesus}. And when he starts to get tired he just says "night night" and expects to be taken to his crib.
 - Sidewalk chalk. Jake loves to draw all over the driveway. And sometimes all over Momma. I think its one of the hazards of the job, no?
 - TALKING. Holy dictionary Batman. I've read that at 18 months, toddlers say an average of 15-20 words, clearly and correctly. Yeah, not this Chatty Cathy. For fun, we counted all the words we could think of that Jake says often and correctly. Over 130 words, people. It's crazytown.

: :  Dislikes  : :

 - Meat. Still. Ugh.
 - People leaving. It's the end of the world. Always.

And that's it. He's entirely too easy to please.

Jake is such an awesome little kiddo. We're completely spoiled with him.
He mimics everything he hears and picks up on things so quickly. Like, scary quickly. I'm convinced that he's a genius {shocker}.
He finds joy in everything. Everything. Couldn't we all learn something from that?
People love being around him and he loves being around people. I'm so stinkin' proud that he's my little man!

Amazing. He's freaking amazing. 
Happy 18 months sweet thing!!
