nineteen months.

i am embarrassingly late on this one.  parker may or may not have turned nineteen months over two weeks ago & is headed right into twenty months in exactly two weeks.  so i'll keep this short & sweet since you'll be hearing all about his milestones again in two weeks {give or take}.

here he is all growed up to nineteen months.
{compare previous monthly pics here.}


this kid is so much fun.  i keep saying every stage is my favorite & it's definitely true for this one.  he is seriously the sweetest little boy.  loves to cuddle & loves his mom & dad more than anything else in the whole world.  except maybe his lightening mcqueen car.... which goes everywhere with him.  {we've gone through three of them.  somewhere in space there is a black hole hiding all of our missing lightening mcqueens.  the only reason he isn't holding one in this picture is because they were all lost at the time.}

he is getting much more verbal & pretty much every sound out of his mouth is a word of some sort.  well, unless it's a car noise.  he doesn't really speak in jibberish & will say just about any word we ask him to.  he's a rockstar at eating with a fork & spoon & can eat his oatmeal or yogurt without any spills.  the mess happens when he decides to use his hands to get the last few drops.


right now his favorite things in the whole world are cars {especially lightening mcqueen}, his blanket {known simply as "B"}, his sheep pillow {known as "baa"} & his stuffed animals {specifically his puppy & his cow... known as "moo"}.  he is a bottomless pit when it comes to cheerios or peanut butter & jelly & sleeps a solid 12+ hours a night with a 2-3+ hour nap every day at 1:00.  most days when i go in to get him out of bed i ask "parker do you want to get up?" and he'll say "noooooo!" {in the cutest high pitched little squeal} and dive back down into his blanket & pillows.

he has a fascination with lining things up {cans from the cupboard, cars, stuffed animals} & thinks every day has to end with a snack.  he's going through a bit of a stranger-danger stage & will bury his head in my shoulder when a new person talks to him & then slowly peek out at them with a smile.  it's pretty cute.

he loves to play with other kids but mostly likes to steal their "choo choos" or cars & then freak out when we have to give them back.  he'll run around playing & stop every few minutes to make sure i'm around & run over to give me a hug & then go about his business.  i like it.

diaper changes are still the worst thing in the world & he's starting to outgrow most his 12-18 month clothes.  he has moved up to the next size & is even wearing quite a few 2T jammies.  whaaat?  he's still pretty small for his age though.  at his 18 month well visit he was in the 50% for weight & the 15% for height.

and?  he is still so dang cute.


love this kid.

now, for good measure here is a video of parker during our nineteen month photoshoot.  this is mostly for all the grandmas & grandpas & aunts & uncles out there & also for anyone who enjoys anything ridiculously cute... because that's all it is.  parker, being ridiculously cute.  just saying.

and if you're wondering why he's looking away from the camera over my shoulder, it's because i'm sitting in front of the tv & he's busy staring past me watching picture-slideshow on the apple tv.  he loves him some pictures of himself.



welp... so much for keeping this post short & sweet.  you'll forgive me, right?

ps:  you'll forgive me for the cheesy "mom" voice i have in this video too, right?  gah!  what is it about hearing your own voice on video that makes you cringe??  seriously.

  16. As I started reading this post I was all like, man, Amy should post a video of Parker because he sounds waaay cute. And then you did. And I died from the cuteness! I love how he said everything so excitedly but when you said night night he looked at you like, "really? I'm not tired." Ha! If I ask Hannah if she wants to sleep she violently shakes her head and yells "no no no!!"

    Oh and the only way I can change Hannah's diaper without a fight is if I give her a book to read while I take care of the business. But she is slightly crazy about books, so I use them frequently to distract her.
