21 Months

Have I really not posted anything since Logan's 20 month post?! 🙈  2016 has not been a good year for me and blogging. But let me tell you, that is all going to change in 2017! I'm going to get caught up and stay caught up! 


Logan at 21 months:

*Has mastered walking down (and sometimes up) the stairs like a big kid all by himself.
*Pulls you by the leg (or sometimes finger) when he wants you to go somewhere or help him with something.
*Prefers males in nursery or when we leave him for date night swap.
*Takes off his jackets by himself. It's pretty funny to watch because he uses his mouth to help him.
*Finally holds still while we change his diaper.
*Has all his teeth except for his second molars.
*Discovered Mickey Mouse Clubhouse this month and is quickly becoming obsessed.
*Wants to buckle his own carseat.
*Requests to do bubbles multiple times a day.
*Thinks the rocking chair in our master bedroom is a slide. He pushes it over and slides down the back. I was letting him get away with it, but it has started making a noise when I rock in it, so I'm trying to break him of the habit.
*Is much more interested in playing with cars than Corbyn ever was.
*Has started eating bread on occasion. (He has never liked bread which just seems so weird.)
*Eats breakfast and lunch at the counter with Corbyn and Peyton.
*Holds phones up to his ear and says hello.

He put a lot of milk in his hair one morning at breakfast, so we had some fun styling it before trying to wash it out.

He has to do everything Peyton does.

Found him like this before I went to bed and had to take a picture before saving him!

He loved this car track at Rog's Uncle Ron and Aunt Linda's house at Thanksgiving.

If it were up to him, we'd do all our book reading on the floor. But he listens way better when he's on my lap in the rocking chair, so much to his dismay, we do that most of the time.

He was pointing at himself in the mirror saying "baby" over and over. I wish he were still a baby, but alas, he's very much a toddler. 

After showing no interest in shows of any kind, one day he sat at the counter and watched an entire Mickey Mouse Clubhouse while I was making dinner. If he wakes up grumpy from his nap, I just have to ask if he wants to watch a Mickey and he perks right up.

This toy rarely gets played with anymore and I'll probably put it up with the baby stuff soon, but he and Beckett were having a great time with it one night when the Yates were over for our date night swap.

I have been finding him sleeping on his football pillow sometimes. 

And this was also another time he needed saving from his crib.

I was lazy a few times and let him eat at the counter with the big kids and now he thinks he always gets to eat up there. If he's really hungry it's not a problem, but if he isn't too hungry he'll get up and down over and over while he's supposed to be eating.

Caught a picture of his shhhh. It is so dang cute!

That smile says it all. Such a fun place to play.

He loves putting on shoes and boots even if they're much too big for him. These are Corbyn's snow boots.

We had 4 snow days in 2 weeks. (My least favorite thing about Portland so far.) He always wants to go out with the big kids, but never seems to have too much fun while he's out there. (We don't have snow boots in his size, so I got out his rain boots that he's getting for Christmas and let him wear those.)

He likes holding the receipt and giving it to the person checking receipts at Costco.

I can't believe he'll be 2 in only 3 months! Oh how we love our Logan!
