21 months. 3 months until my baby is TWO. Less than 1 month until he is a big brother!! This is pure craziness!
I feel like this past month has gone by in a complete blur. The little monkey enjoyed his trip to the beach, lots of pool time, spend the night parties with Mimi and G-dad, outside time galore (Even in this ridiculous heat. He's such a boy!), and several lunch dates with me and friends! He's just so much fun to be around, and, even though I am so uncomfortable and exhausted, I am really trying to make the most of these last few weeks where I don't have to be shared.
I can't give our babysitter, Vivienne, enough praises. Hampton has become a little chatter box recently, and I really give her so much of the credit. She does letters, numbers, shapes, animals, etc. with the kids everyday, and she said he just soaks it all in! He really enjoys his 3 days at day care, too, which is such a relief for me!
I've been trying to get this post put together for over a week now, so I'll leave it with a few sweet memories (mainly for myself to look back on) and some pictures!
-"Hep pease" (Help, please!) is heard a lot in our house. Sweet boy wants to do so much on his own, but he asks sweetly when he needs someone to help him out!
-We have met several new babies this month, and Hampton is just so precious around them. He will pat their heads, kiss them, always wants to "hold" them, and makes sure to share whatever her has--sippy cup, toy, you name it! I hope he loves his baby brother just as much!!
-We've introduced the idea of the potty to H, but we're not really potty training right now. He sits on his little toilet before bath/getting ready for bed, but has yet to use it. This is something I really don't want to deal with until we've got Colton home and established some sort of normalcy, so I don't mind!
-This kid still sleeps like a champ (knock on wood)! 2 good naps and a solid 11-12 hours at night makes for a happy little monkey (and mommy. and daddy.)!!
-"Little monkey" is going to have to be renamed "little fish"! The pool has been a life saver this summer!
-One day, my child will like the same food consistently, I guess. For now, I play "guess what Hampton will eat today..." and cross my fingers!!
-While this boy loves his mommy, he already has a special bond with Jordan. The pure joy that radiates from him when J walks in the door is enough to make my heart melt.
