20 months.

Dear Sawyer,

You are 20 months old.  I can't believe you are so close to 2 years old.  I keep saying every age is my favorite but I'm really loving this stage right now.  Temper tantrums and all.  Because you are so much fun, so funny and entertaining and really becoming a little boy.  We can't get enough of you!

You are growing too.  You weigh 26 lbs and are 31.5 inches tall.  You are wearing 18-24 month clothes and size 6 shoes.  Still in size 4 diapers.

You are just taking 1 nap a day.  You go down after lunch and usually nap for around 3 hours.  You still wake up between 7-7:30 every morning and you go to bed between 8-8:30.  You are back to being a great sleeper.  There were a couple of weeks right after brother was born that you were getting up throughout the night.  Thankfully, that has passed.  And you still love for me to rock you for a few minutes before bed and sing a couple of songs.  I'm doing this for as long as you'll let me.  Hopefully another 10 years or so. Ha!

You still aren't talking a whole lot but are learning more words everyday.  And you know what the duck, dog, train, car, baby, cow, monkey and lots of other stuff says.  And you know all your basic body parts and will point them out on yourself and others.  We can also ask you where certain items are in your picture book and you can point them out.  Probably because we look at the book 100 times a day.  You love doing that.

Some of your current loves include:
outside (if it was up to you then you would never come inside), "baby" brother, milk, oatmeal creme pies, suckers, gardening tools, books, puzzles, bats and balls, pasta, outside, doing the laundry, swiffering the floors, throwing things in the trash, going for walks, animals, airplanes, putting on shoes and socks, bath time, waving, high fiving and giving knuckles.  And did I mention outside.

You constantly keep me laughing and occasionally pulling my hair out but I wouldn't trade one second.  Everyday is an adventure because of you!

I love you bunches!

Here are some pictures of you at 20 months:

And in true 20 month old boy fashion...
