Zoo Trip and Some Randoms

Sharing my breakfast with my buddy. As he likes to say (when he wants something I have) "I share with you, Mommy?". How can you say no to that?!

Playing outside in the flower bed. I love watching his imagination at work!

We went to the zoo this past week with Asher and Jamie. The boys had a blast!

The best part was playing in the water!!

Sullivan is 16 Months Old!

yes, I let him eat paper in an attempt to keep him still. It didn't work.

* Sullivan weighs about 22 pounds.
* He wears size 9-12 month clothes, and he wears one-size cloth diapers (size 4 in disposables)
*He is always on the go!
*He is a paper magnet. He will find paper anywhere and immediately put it in his mouth.
 * He nurses every 4-6 hours. When he takes a bottle, he'll drink 5-7 ounces. He's tried whole milk when he steals Fisher's cup, but he always makes a face and spits it back out.
*He loves, loves, loves smoothies and guacamole.
*He loves playing with balls, the water table, and sitting on the little 4wheeler.
*He does not like people! He usually cries if someone looks at him, or at least buries his head in my shoulder. He's still a big mama's boy.
* Sleep....oh, sleep. We are majorly struggling in this department. He wakes up 2-4 times a night; sometimes I can get him to go right back to sleep after nursing/patting, and sometimes we're up for a while. He will nap for 2-3 hours, though, which is nice.
*He's a snuggler.
*He doesn't like men, at all. He likes his daddy and his Pops. His uncles are questionable. :)
*He has 11 teeth. Three of his molars have finally come through.
*His eyes are hazel-they're beautiful!
*He knows his nose, ears, belly button, teeth, and tongue.
*He likes to pat-a-cake, and he knows the motions. He also likes to stomp his foot. He's started saying "yah" and kicking his foot-practicing his karate.
*He has lots of words now-mama, dada, YaYa, Pops, Lenny, Percy, snack (nack), outside (side), no, banana (mnana), dog, choo choo, ball, swing...He uses "no" very appropriately. :) bite (for food and drink), yes ("yeah"), thank you , Fisher ("Tisher"), delicious, light, book, boot
*He loves to eat with a spoon or a fork. He'll end up eating much more that way than if I try to feed him. He's very messy, but so proud of himself.
*He is fearless! He loves to climb, and he loves to slide. He thinks he's as big as his brother :)
*He will give giant, open mouth slobbery kisses. And if you're not careful, he'll stick his tongue in your mouth. :)
* He loves to antagonize Fisher. He will always take whatever Fisher is playing with, and he loves to pull his hair.
* Nicknames: Sully, Brother, Bug, Brother Bear, Turkey

Splash Park!

Here are some pictures off my camera of our splash park visit last month. Better late than never, right?! :)

Monster Jam Birthday-Fisher is 3!

We celebrated Fisher's third birthday with a monster jam party. The theme was an easy one, since he loves is obsessed with monster trucks! And d├ęcor was easy, too, because we own a million and one monster trucks! The food consisted of foods that Fisher loves, including hot dogs, fruit, and yogurt. He was most excited about the cupcakes, because he got to pick out what colors he wanted to have. He chose red, blue, and green. It was a beautiful day to be outside and celebrate our sweet boy turning 3!

he was so excited to decorate his cupcake with sprinkles and candles!

the free printable that I customized with words that are all about Fisher

the invitation

Mommy and the  birthday boy!
the best family shot we could get
he was being so shy about everyone singing to him

this little corner had all of Fisher's favorite foods-applesauce, goldfish, yogurt, and his cupcake :)

 I can't believe that Fisher is three! He is such a joy, even when he's not being pleasant. He's strong-willed and determined, but so sweet. He loves to be read to, and he always asks a million questions. He remembers everything, even things you'd prefer he didn't. :) He has such an active imagination, and he loves to play by himself with his trains, planes, trucks, and construction equipment. He loves to play outside and go exploring, and he and Asher can get into trouble together when they're playing. He's got a temper, and get mad very quickly. He's a wonderful snuggler, and still loves his thumb and his Lullie. He's still a momma's boy, but loves spending time with his Daddy.

This little boy is one of my greatest blessings, and I love everything about being his Momma, even when it's hard. I never though that I would have a curly blond haired, blue eyed boy, but I am so thankful for him!
