Thomas, 15 months

Oh Thomas.

This little boy has a personality that refuses to not shine.  


22 lbs (Only 39 % on weight---how is that possible?)
30 inches

mama, dada, uh oh, AL right, NO, ball, more, banana, bye bye (with a wave)


Does a good 12-13 hour stretch, usually from 6:30 p.m. to around 7:30 or 8:00 a.m.  He sometimes takes two naps, but has been fighting this for awhile.   (THIS HAS BEEN AWESOME).  I will say it again, getting your sleep back is about the best thing ever.)

Thomas walks/tries to run everywhere.  He is trying to climb up on things, and he is not deterred by falling.  He can climb all the way up on the playground and goes face first down the slides.  Thomas has no fear. 

eating with silverware (he's really bad at it), his blanky, riding in the bike trailer, putting his shoes on to GO, being held, reading books( specifically "Hello Boston", "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Hop on Pop", doing anything Christian is doing, Bumblebee (the rescue bot), grabbing food out of the garbage, FOOD, slides, my cell phone,  and bath time.

Diaper changes, getting things taken away, being fed...basically anything that he is being forced to do, he dislikes.  And he is vocal about it.  (But as I was writing this list, I was thinking that I'm the same way, so oh well.)

Thomas loves being with all of us.  He loves doing things and being on the go.  He is a delightful boy, and he is so funny.  I really do admire his persistence and stubbornness.  He works so hard to get what he wants, and he doesn't give up easily.  He is so fun to snuggle with and give loves to.  His smile rocks our world.  Also his blonde fuzzy hair.
