19 months

The wild child is now 19 months old. And I could sum up this entire entry with 3 words: He. Never. Stops. I mean, it is ridiculous the amount of energy that this kid has. Most days, I love it! Some days, I wish I could somehow bribe him to sit there and watch a movie (which, by the way, only happens when he's strapped in the car in front of the DVD player--and even then he usually finds other toys to play with!).
Buying clothes at this point is kind of annoying. He's in a lot of 24 month/2T stuff, but I had to go out and buy a handful of 18 month shorts recently. While the shirts work, he seems to walk right out of the shorts! It's funny but not practical. ;)
His vocabulary is really taking off, but don't expect him to repeat words when you ask. He'll say what he needs to say on HIS terms, not ours!
Meal time is my least favorite time of the day. While most days he's a fairly decent eater, for some reason, he feels that when he is done, he is supposed to toss his plate, even if there is food still on it. It's driving me insane.
He is so funny! I wish I could have a camera on him 24/7 to catch all of his hilarious actions, random faces, and incomprehensible "Hamptonese"!
He is still such a great sleeper--taking two 1.5 hour naps (at least) a day; going to bed around 7:30 and sleeping until 7-7:15.
We're sure to all be on our toes this summer, as he loves to be outside and loves the water. He took his first dip in the *cold* pool this weekend. It didn't seem to phase him, and he had a blast splashing around. Jordan finally got in, and he jumped to his daddy over and over and over again! He loves it!
