O: 1.5 Years

Take your time, sweet boy. Keep taking your sweet time. Olan’s got a knack for a few new things as he hits this big mile marker in his little life. Golly, he’s just the best.

  • He’s WALKING finally! And I thought Evie was a slow walker! At nearly seventeen months, he decided that those long twiggy things could be helpful, and now he’s unstoppable.
  • He’s got the head nod down. A game changer in the communication realm.
  • Loves sitting on the trike while being pushed around. And looks freakin’ adorable with his helmet on too.
  • He wants his shoes on as soon as he wakes up. And not just any shoes, it’s gotta be his Nikes. Heaven help us.
  • His hair grows like a weed on top of his head!
  • He’s wearing 2T clothes. He’s gotta be pushing 30 pounds. The chubs on his cheeks… that cheek jiggle when he runs around is irresistibly cute. Mmm-mm!
  • Has been introduced to his current favorite stuffed dolls: Mickey Mouse and Corduroy. These have even ventured into the crib recently!
  • He loves his blanket… and the funny thing about it is that it’s a hand-me-down from Evie, complete with Strawberry Shortcake prints. He loves walking around with the minky side wrapped around his head. He’s so into all things soft and cozy and he’ll just cuddle up with this blanket in no time. So so so cute.
  • Working toward no pacifier. Got a ways to go.
  • Loves the outdoors. I cannot wait until summer when he can be outside more! If a door is left ajar, he is GONE. Beware!
  • He’s learning the ropes of ornery-ville. The naughty smirk is emerging.
  • Very much into his helicopters. We spotted a helicopter in the sky the other night on a walk, and he was enamored.
  • Books continue to be a favorite for Olan. Momma’s dream come true!
  • He understands so much of what we’re saying, it’s a little scary! 🙂
  • Has “uh-oh” down pat. He also likes to leave his mouth open wide when something surprising happens.
  • Cars. Enough said.
  • This dude is demanding when he’s hungry. Resilient little bugger. He will screech at you until you pick him up and feed the pie hole.
  • He’s giving legit hugs lately.
  • Every time he sees a kitty in a book, he goes in for a face hug. Whatever the obsession is, it’s stinkin’ cute.
  • It’s almost time to take the baby gate down. Almost.
  • He’s a decent picker-upper. Let’s keep that trend alive.

So proud that we get to call Olie ours! Isn’t he lovely? Happy half-way, man!

Bryley Turns 18 Months

What a mover this girl is. WOW! Did my best… and it helps when the subject is so gosh darn cute. Bryley at 18 months!

Tabor = 1.5

Our little friend Tabor is now 1.5 years young… and gets cuter every time I see her! All that hair, a beautiful little smile, and she knows how to work the camera already. She’s a sweetie, and we love her!
