Happy 17 and 18 Month Birthdays!

Dear Ian,

I got a little behind on your letter writing, but I will try to do better in the future, I promise! We had so much fun together this summer. We went to the beach, the pool, the zoo, and the park. You learned to walk this summer, and you learned sign language. It's so cool that you know signs and can communicate with us now. You're still the puzzle master, and you can put together a 26 peice alphabet puzzle all by yourself (the box says ages 3+). You even can NAME some of the letters, like o, d, and z. I have no idea how you learned that, but one day you just busted out with it. I was really surprised. You like to push things around now, like the laundry basket, you wagon, and the stroller. You also learned to kick a ball. You've gotten very attached to your binky and blankie, and you always have to sleep with some stuffed animal; kitty, elephant, Nemo, bunny, or monkey. You can be so naughty sometimes, and you love to do things that you're not supposed to do. You're new favorite thing to do, that you're not supposed to do, is slide down the steps at the speed of light, laughing while I stand at the stop of the steps fearing for your life. You like to tease people, and you love to be silly. You are such a big boy. It's amazing.

Your favorite TV show is Jack's Big Music Show and Vinko the Dancing Bear. Your favorite toys are puzzles, play food, blocks/legos, and the tupperware/canned goods cabinet. Your favorite food is chicken nuggets. I have no idea how much you weigh or how long you are, but you wear a size 24 month bottom and a 2T top. You're feet grew 1.5 sizes over the summer and you wear a size 5.5 shoe!

I love you silly head. You're the best and I'm so proud of you.

Love always,
