Meet the Sullivans: Oh my, Owen is 1 1/2!

Oh my, Owen is 1 1/2!

Dear Owen,

Oh my, big boy! Last week you turned 1 1/2! My friend Nicole told me way back in the Spring that now that you're one your language would just take off -- and she was right! You're picking up new words left and right.We have to watch what we say 'round here!

blowing kisses!!

3 1/4 inch tall (79%) and 26lbs 4 ozs (77%)

Through the night on most nights, but is up once a night every once in a while. Naps seem to be getting shorter (you haven't taken a 2 hour nap in weeks) and bedtime is getting later. You've been staying up past 9pm like it's no big deal. 

Buses! Trains! Airplanes! Dogs. Pretzels. Dancing. Climbing. Being outside. Learning new words. 

Being taken away from something fun. Having your diaper changed. 

- SAYS -
"Mama baba hot", "Hi dog", "Mama voo voo?" (car),  "Mama uppie?", "Knock Knock", "All done", "OH NO!", "Aipane!!" (airplane), "Sit", "Mook" (milk) and many more.

- DOES -
Loves dancing to "Blurred Lines", it is his jam. And his favorite spot to dance is on our bed while playing music on the Apple TV. "Rides" his bike. Jumps into the pool after counting to three. Runs fast and slow when asked. Asks mommy and daddy to sit with him while patting the seat neat to him. Spots airplanes in the sky and stops whatever he is doing to watch them fly in the sky. This month we bought you a potty and you sometimes pretend to go pee pee on it, but we're far from potty training.

- EATS -
Apples sliced up with the wavy knife. Watermelon. Broccoli, if I call it a tree. Turkey. Pot roast. Pretzels. Popsicles. Cheese. Tortillas. Quesadillas. the list goes on...

How can I possibly sum up all the fun we have in one little post? Each night when you go to bed your dad and I marvel at how sweet, smart, fun and adventurous you are. I have loved you since the moment of your creation, and I have loved every stage so far (each in its own way and for different reasons), but this age is by far my very favorite. You communicate and express your feelings and we have so much fun! I love you so much, my sweet sweet baby boy! 

xoxo, Mama
