eek. 18 months. this sweet boy brings so much joy to our lives.
lately j has been all about being with his daddy wherever he goes. from the second ry walks in from work to the moment j goes to bed, he wants daddy. it doesn't matter what they are doing, as long as it's together. i love watching their relationship grow.

he thinks he's hilarious. he loves laughing and making other people laugh. hearing that little laugh is one of my favorite sounds in the entire world.
he's been sticking his tongue out when concentrating lately. it's something both me and ry do, so it's no surprise he picked that up.

oh our sweet boy. he is so dearly loved by so many and that makes our hearts so happy. j is so full of life and he is oh so curious. he loves his trucks and he loves tormenting beans. he loves running to the pantry or fridge and he has learned what each of his snacks are, so he inspects each snack carefully before choosing what it is that he wants. every morning he won't let us set him down until we've held him for whatever length of time he's determined is necessary to wake up. he must not be a morning person - that's mama's fault. when we ask for kisses he leans his head in and lets us kiss him instead of giving us kisses, and he thinks it's pretty funny. his bedtime routine has changed more times than i can count. from snuggling in our bed, to sitting on the couch and reading stories, to sitting on the ground and flipping through books faster than we can read. one sure thing we can count on, though, is that telling him it's time to brush his teeth gets him up the stairs faster than anything else - he loves it! sometimes i want to keep our sweet boy little forever, but it sure is fun watching him grow. we do so love our j.
