Cold March happenings

Jared has been gone a lot this month but here are some fun things I've captured.

Our house has FINALLY begun!

Emmett discovered how much fun toilet paper is. Jared and I were in our room and thought he was playing in our drawers in the bathroom which he does a lot but we found the whole roll of TP undone. Half on the ground and half in the tub. It made me laugh.

Emmett loves his daddy. He fakes asleep then Emmett hits him on the shoulder then Jared tackles him and he loves it.

I have 7 flowers on my African Violet and it is so pretty.
Emmett is 17 months today and here is what I caught him doing just barely. He was playing with my spray bottles and putting the lids on them. Then he brought some into my room.
Cute face before putting the lid on.

Putting it on.
and a super cute grin afterward. He cracks me up a lot but has started having tantrums and will sit down then slowly lay back but hit his head on the tile on purpose then start crying even louder. If you ignore him he'll bonk his head on the floor again. I try to keep him on the carpet when he does this but he just finds something else to bonk his head on. It's kind of funny and I want to get it on video but hopefully he gets over this.
I love this boy!

1st haircut

Jared has been wanting to shave Emmett's head since he was born but I managed to hold him off until March 12, 2011.
I never thought I would be the type to grow attached to my child's baby hair but I did and I was sad to see it go but it is much easier to handle now.
I'm really bummed I didn't get a "before" picture.

He's not taking his eyes off the noisy thing daddy has in his hands.

and he hated every second of it.

Poor buddy

He was fine afterwards since he got to take a bath.
And of course I didn't get an "after" picture either.

15 months

These pictures he is actually 16 months but here is how he measured at his 15 month appt.
Head 18.6 in 52.86 %tile
Length 30.75 39.84 %tile
Weight 23.96 42.55%tile

In the mornings he has enjoyed watching toy story on my bed. He laughs at all the same parts which usually involve buster.
He loves getting into everything and has been caught playing in the toilet a few times. He jabbers a lot while pointing with his finger. Some things he says that I understand are "uh oh" "nana" (for banana or just says it when he's hungry) "mama" "dad" sometimes I think it sounds like he says thank you.
Animal sounds now include the horse to go with his dog cat and cow. He has gotten really independent and has been sleeping really well at night! He would put himself down for a nap if he could get into his bed by himself I think. He makes me laugh all day long and will give kisses if you ask him. I can't believe how big he has gotten and how much I love this boy. Another thing about him is how much he loves to eat. He will clean his plate and want more. If you give him more and he doesn't want it it will end up on the floor. He is like a puppy and will come and beg if you have food in your hand.
He loves everyone and gives any stranger that talks to him a big grin and will wave at them.
That's all I can think of to put that I want to remember about him at this stage. I can't imagine him being any more fun or cute than he already is.
