Sullivan is 18 Months Old!

* Sullivan weighs 22 pounds and is 32 inches tall.
* He wears size 9-12 and some 12-18 month clothes, and he wears one-size cloth diapers (size 4 in disposables)
*He is always on the go!
 * He nurses 2-4 times a day. He still isn't a fan of regular milk, but we haven't really pushed him to keep trying it. He only takes a bottle on the two nights that I work, and he'll drink between 2-5 ounces.
*He loves to eat!
*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 still wakes up 1-2 times a night for  me, but will sometimes sleep through the night for his daddy. :)
*He's a snuggler.
*He doesn't like men, at all. He likes his daddy and his Pops. His uncles are questionable. :)
*He has 14 (?) teeth. He's working on getting 4-5 more, I think.
*His eyes are hazel-they're beautiful! They tend to stay brown most of the time, so I think he'll end up being a brown-eyed boy. His hair keeps getting blonder, and the ends have a bit of curl to them.
*He knows his nose, ears, belly button, teeth, and tongue, feet, toes, hands, fingers, hair/head.
*He has lots of words now! I told the doctor he had about a 25 word vocabulary. Then, I got home and started counting-he actually has a 50+ word vocabulary! He's also putting words together- "thank you", "shoes on", "shoes off", "no bed"
*He's a bit of a shrieker at times, and it's very shrill!
*He loves shoes and socks. He always wants shoes on, and he'll mess with other people's shoes, too.
*He is fearless! He loves to climb, and he loves to slide. He thinks he's as big as his brother :)
* Nicknames: Sully, Brother, Bug, Brother Bear, Turkey

Fun at the Park and Crafting

This beautiful weather has had us outside and at the park a lot lately!

This one could play with his trains in the dirt all day long. He plays independently so well, and I am so thankful that he loves to use his imagination!

We've been trying out all the local parks. I'm glad we've got lots of options so these boys never get tired of going!

I picked up some little craft kits at Target last week for Fisher and Asher to do. They were perfect for them! No glue involved, just some self adhesive backing. I had to let go of the idea that they needed to look exactly like the picture on the kit, but the boys loved sticking things to their hearts content. :)

Wedding Shower and Playdough Fun

We went to a wedding shower last week for my brother and his fiancé. The wedding is only a few weeks away-I hope these ring bearers are ready!

This is what not napping looks like later in the evening. He climbed in a box and covered himself up with bubble wrap.

We also made homemade playdough last week. Fisher has loved it! I'm talking hours of entertainment, which is a huge deal. It was so easy to make, and he really enjoyed helping me. Well, until he lost interest and I got to finish it by myself. But he's enjoyed the finished product. And it's stayed moist for over a week!

Cheesin' and Underwear

He smiles and says "cheese" when I take his picture. Sigh. I just love him!!

Fisher decided that he wanted big boy underwear, so we headed to Target to pick some out. After much deliberation on his part, he picked out Thomas the Train underwear. Sometimes he's interested in wearing them, other times not so much. Baby steps-a few weeks ago he didn't even want to wear them.

Park Fun and MBBY

We enjoyed some time at the park last week! It was so hot, so it was nice to be in the shade for a while. I've never understood why they don't build more parks in the shade...

The boys wanted to help YaYa wash her car, so I got them their own bucket of water. You can see what happened instead.

This boy loves corn!

Winding down when YaYa by watching some Thomas the Train.

We took Daddy to MBBY because he's never been. The boys had a blast! I'm loving everyone being back in school, because that means all of our favorite places are less crowded. :)
