15 Months Old

Because of my C.R.A.Z.Y. December I did not get a 12 Month update.  So now that he is 15 Months I will just update now!

Thomas have been growing and talking and making so many strides it blows my mind every day!

Baseball, Basketball, Football: 
As I have said already in another post, one of Thomas' first words was "ball" well he has shown how much he loves any kind of ball game.  He calls baseball and basketball, "ba-ball." He has quite a few "ba-balls" and I sometimes will listen to him ask for it ALL day long!! He will get it then lose it then look for it again. I love that he loves sports! Thomas has a Tee and baseball bat and baseballs.  One of his favorite things to do is to hit the baseballs off this Tee.

Words - His most popular words these days:
People:
- Da-da
- Ma-ma
- GiGi
- Pat-Pat (My youngest brother)
- Opa (My dad - He only says this occasionally)
- Sister (We are still working on Chloe)
Other words: 
- ba-ball (Baseball and basketball)
- firetruck
- keys (This is an occasional word)
- Elmo
- Uh-oh
- Bye-Bye
- Baby

These are to just name a few.  He is learning so much everyday!!

Clothes:
12-18 Months - Soon he will be in solid 18M Clothes.

Diapers:
He is in size 3 right now but when we run out he will go up to size 4.

Walking:
He started walking (taking more than 1-2 steps) on January 1.  Just 2.5months later he is practically running.

Personality:
He is a social bug!! He waves at everyone and say Hi and Bye-Bye to everyone.  He is recognizing when we finish phone calls and before we say bye. He chimes in and says it. lol. It is so cute!! =)
He knows what he want even if he cannot communicate exactly what he wants.  He grunts and points.  It is a little frustrating for both of us but his vocabulary will grow.  It does everyday!

Eating:
This child can eat non-stop. He eats pretty much anything we eat.  My parents like to spoil him with cookies and sweets but he doesn't get them much at our house so it is truly a treat for when he goes to GiGi and Opa's house. Vegetables are still hard for me to get him to eat. He will eat pretty much anything pureed but I just don't puree much for him anymore.  Sometimes I can get him to eat peas and corn. He will eat any kind of squash: Butternut Squash, Zucchini, Yellow (Summer) Squash. I don't really care for any kind of squash and neither does Derek so it is hard to understand why he loves them so much but he does, so I make it for him. He also Loves cheese, applesauce and pizza.  These three things are always a hit with him.  He loves the pouches of fruit and vegetables but they are so expensive.  They sell the pouches that you can fill yourself, I am thinking about doing that for him so that he gets more vegetables in him.  We shall see. =) He will most times eat an entire 6-count kids meal at Chick-fil-a.  It is crazy how much this child eats sometimes. And of course, Cheerios and Golfish are always a good snack!

Thomas is 1!!!

I cannot believe my baby boy is 1!! It seems like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital.  Thomas turned 1 on December 17, 2012. 

We did a Fire Truck themed birthday party. 



We had a picture of the full table but I am not sure where it is.  I need to track it down.  I make the cake and the cupcakes.  The cake was a Pinterest idea.  Oh how I LOVE Pinterest.  

We had a family only Birthday Party.  That was big enough!! It was so much fun and low key since it was family only. 


Thomas LOVED the cake.  I had to take it from him before he ate too much and made himself sick.

Birthday Presents! He loved opening the presents and playing with each toy he received.

March Already?!?!

Hello Blog World!!

I have had a much needed blog break.  It has not necessarily been on purpose but with all the changes around our house with a new baby coming I have not had time to blog nor have I had a computer to blog.  The hubs has needed it with him at work to study for classes.  So my blogging might be lagging for a while until he is done with school.  I will try to get to it as much as possible to keep everyone updated on our life.  I have quite a few blog posts that need to be added!! 1st Birthday, Christmas, Baby #2 Gender post, etc. That is just to name a few. I will try to play some catch up here and keep everyone up to date! =) For now, here are some pictures of my sweet boy...that is what everyone wants to see anyway!!

Silly Faces!! 

Go Wolfpack!!
