My boyfriend

18 months old.
Crazy busy.  Crazy messy.  Crazy adorable.  

Longs to be outside.
Favorite word is Noooooo!  Also loves to say “No Me No!” and “No Way!”  Which comes out more like “No Whey!”  It stands for yes, right now, let’s go, all done, I’m happy, and of course, no way.  

Loves to feed himself.  
Loves to see how far he can chuck his food when he’s done feeding himself.  
Directions to all babysitters: “keep feeding him until he starts chucking his food.”

Thinks he’s pretty amusing.
Actually is pretty amusing.  :) 
A charmer.  Flirts like his daddy.  

Totally content to play in princess tents.  Also plays with Polly Pockets, mermaids, and sparkly shoes.  
Loves to be cuddled and held.  
Follows his mommy around all. day. long.  
Does the dishes like no one’s business.  
And the laundry.  
Places one hand on his other arm to soothe himself.  It looks like he’s folding his arms in an attempt to be reverent.
Loves to be rocked and held before bed.  
He holds sooo still for fear that if he moves a muscle rock time will come to a screeching halt.  Then he peeks up at mom often and smiles.  He know this melts her heart and she will keep on rocking.
Total mamma’s boy.  
Mom wouldn’t have it any other way.  
Sleeps with his feet crossed and his little bottom up in the air.
Mom thinks this is incredibly adorable and takes pictures of him sleeping often.
Great conversationalist.  

But knows how to text if he’s not in the mood for chit chat.  
Walks, but still prefers crawling when he wants to get somewhere fast.  CRAZY fast when he crawls. 
Can probably crawl faster than most people run.
Loves his sisters so much and gets positively giddy when they are around.

 Claps at himself often.  We’ve all taught him that he’s pretty special stuff.  
Because he is.  :)
xoxo, Erin

  1. This post makes me want to cry. My baby boy is in high school now and it seems like yesterday he was an adorable 18 month old. I want to reach into those pictures and give your son a hug and cuddle. :-) Thanks for sharing!

  2. This post brought a smile to my face before I left for work. Treasure it every day–my “baby boys” are 8 and 10 now. Seems like just yesterday they were 18 months old. I wish every day that I could have one more day when they were that age. It is magical!

  3. Such a little cutie pie, Erin! Our Millie is 18 months old and I cracked up when I saw the first pic…I just finished cleaning up a big pile of diapers! ha! We started tantrums this week *sigh* Good thing they’re so cute…I just about fall into bed at night, I’m worn out!!

  4. I lov this stage and the darling whale outfit! On another note, I have a 4 yr old daughter and was thinking about getting a princess tent for Christmas. Can you share how big it is and where purchased. Thx!

  5. Oh, my sweet baby Kole is so big. Sad that I don’t get to see him grow up. At least we have blogs! :)

    I’m amazed at how clean your kids are all the time. :)

  6. So sweet. Your son is doing so many of the same things my daughter is. She is just a few months older. She loves to stand on the dishwasher and “talk/text” on the phone! This stage is rewarding and frustrating all at the same time. My daughter is very clingy all. the. time. It is nice to be snuggled, but sometimes mommy needs some space to breathe!

  7. He’s adorable and almost the exact age of my Andrew! They would be a destruction nightmare if they ever got together…but they are so adorable you just have to smile!

  8. Such a cute post…and a handsome boy you have there! Boys do love there moms a LOT, don’t they! My son is 8 and still comes over every morning and hops into bed for cuddle time.

  9. Oh I really can’t believe how grown up he is! It has gone by way too fast for sure! It seems like you just got him here. Love seeing all the cute pics of him (yay for my favorite Erin posts!) Love how he sleeps, too cute! Now that Jensen is rolling like a pro he has fallen asleep with his little bum up like that a few times and I think- so adorable, but he’s way too little for that! I know I’ll blink and he’ll be all over the place!

  10. what a big boy! could it be he’s already 18 months old??? crazy.

    p.s. thanks again for the tap shoes yesterday. sorry we had to run so quick. mcdonalds was calling for the girls. ;)

  11. Your boyfriend is very cute. :) I love how each picture captures his fun personality. I’m sure he keeps you busy, but these are definitely the days you will cherish later.

  12. I think your son and my son were separated at birth. They are so much alike! Dane sleeps EXACTLY the same way as Kole – butt in the air, feet crossed. Too cute. And he loves to be “in the dishwasher.”

    I was actually reading this post with Dane next to me, and he kept pointing at Kole and saying, “Baby, baby.” I said, “That baby’s name is Kole,” and he started calling him by his name. I have a feeling we’ve got another reader of your blog on our hands here! He seems to enjoy it as much as I do.

    My little guy turns 2 on Thursday and it just goes so fast. I totally get how exhausting it is, too, though!

    Hugs to you all!

  13. Wow, totally heart melting/warming post – LOVE it!!! I have a 3 month old little guy and looking at this fills me with the warm and fuzzies about what is headed our way. He has a big sister, too, so he’ll know all about sparkles and princess tents :)
