Yet again I have taken another ridiculously long time to update my blog. Ethan and I have been enjoying the summer and taking advantage of the fantastic weather!
Here are the updates:
18 month doctors appointment: My giant boy is still in the 95% at 34" tall and 30lbs.
New friends: We have made some new friends and enjoyed lots of playdates. Thursdays we generally join the "Bump & Baby Club" in Wicker Park for fun in the sun. Also, my friend Heidi has been sweet enough to invite us over to join her on Wednesdays to play with the boy she nannies.
Good Friends: Ethan & I generally join my fabulous friend, Beverly, and her two kids, Austin & Addyson, for a weekly date in the park.
Words: It's finally happened, Ethan is starting to repeat everything I say. Luckily we have avoided bad words. We've learned cool, dude, happy, happy birthday (sounds like appakirchu), elbow, oh man, boo (or boooooo), airplane, hippo, bra, owie, and... boobs (or boo boos, not to be confused with owie). Lots and lots of words... it would take all day to list them.
Style: Yup, my boy needs a style section now! He's wearing 2T and some 3T clothing. I found little Hanes tanks (aka: wife beaters, dago tees - sorry if these offend) that are so cute on him since he's little. We found this awesome skull and crossbones hat at Psycho Baby. He also got his third, and most stylish, haircut a couple weeks ago.
Mama cut it... we went a little retro. I love it!
The Cute Things: When I say "dragonfly" he does this cute eww gross thing with his face and hands. He responds to "I love you" by blowing a kissing, or sometimes by saying whaa (kinda like muah). And just to make you fall even more in love with him, if you ask him some like "why are you so cute?!" he will shrug and lean his head to one side. You have to see it to understand how adorable it is.
Fun Stuff: Ethan is taking gymnastics with his cousin, Maggie. He loves it and never wants to leave. Ethan even mastered the somersault. Okay, well maybe not mastered but he practices every chance he gets. It's too cute!
We have also gone to several splash parks and had some city fun, especially at Millennium Park!
Last but not least... PICTURES!
