In 18 months, Jackson:
-learned to sing. This is one of his favorite things. Favorite songs are "ABC"/"Twinkle, twinkle little star", "Baa, Baa Black Sheep" and "B-I-N-G-O". He can really carry a tune (we are hoping for an American Idol superstar!)
-become a master climber. Couches, chairs, stairs, his toddler slide...nothing stands in his way.
-become quite the talker. New words include: Mommy, Daddy, Moo Moo, Bubba, gaga (my grandfather), Hahn (Shawn, my sister), nana (banana), eat, up, hi, bye, baby, outside, ball, brr, pod (potty), Bob (his paci's name), Amen, OMG (yes, he heard this from me, not my proudest parenting moment), yum, orange, purple, read, bubble, eye, ok, no (which is heard ALOT, usually said with force), uh-oh ketti oh (uh oh spaghetti-oh), night-night, yea, alright.
-can tell you what a cow, cat, sheep, duck, tiger, and pig say. He used to have dog down pat, but now when you ask him he says the dog says "ho, ho, ho", oh well.
-can show you where his eyes, ears, head and hair are. We are still working on mouth and nose.
-can kick/throw a ball well.
-still loves to eat...Favorite foods are: Carbs (pancakes, potatoes, bread, cereal, rice), fruit, meat sticks (totally grosses me out), cheese...He used to eat everything but he has recently gotten stubborn and won't try things. I am hoping that this is a phase and he will grow out of it.
I can't believe that I met you 18 months ago. That is such a short time, but I can't remember my life without you. You are such a joy and always know what to do to make me laugh. There is nothing better than hearing you say "Hi Mommy". I can't wait to see what God has in store for you little one!
I love you,
