twenty months.

anyone remember how much i apologized for being late with parker's nineteen month update post?  yeah, that's laughable.  parker turns twenty-one months in nine days.  but let's not go there.  right now?  we're talking about a cutie-patootie little twenty month old p-ray.

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


twenty month old parker is doing more than ever.  more words, more antics, more fun & more mischief.  he is more determined than ever to do things his way & be an independent little boy.  for the most part, he's still the awesome & easy going little kid he's always been but oh man, he wears me out some days!

he's really starting to figure things out.  he can do his little melissa & doug puzzles without hesitation & knows how to line up his thomas "choo-choos" all facing the right direction so that the magnets stick.  then he drives them off the table so they crash on the floor & yells "yayyy!" while clapping his hands.  goofball.  he's become more obsessed than ever with his blanket {"B!"} & insists on taking it every. where.  there have been some epic battles over leaving it in the car to go in a store & we've even had to pull over on the side of the road to get a dirty "B" out of the car trunk, wipe it down with a baby wipe & give it to a melting down baby.  oh yeah, & then there was the time we had a thirty minute meltdown over no "B" at the dinner table.  ah geeze.  where did my easy going little baby go?  i think he's officially become a toddler.


don't get me wrong, parker's still a blast.  he walks into a room & shouts "Mommy!" to which i reply, "hi parker!" to which he says, "HI!" in the cutest, happiest, most expressive little voice ever.  he does it with his daddy too.  he would play "tent" in our bed for hours if he could, which pretty much just consists of him rolling around under the comforter like a crazy person while sam & i hold it high up like a tent with our feet.  he only breaks to lay on his back & kick frantically at the comforter with his feet from time to time.

he's obsessed with elmo, buzz, mator {he calls him "tractor"} & thomas.  he still loves puppies like crazy & kinda freaked out on sam when he turned the channel from "tombstone" because he wanted to see more "nays" {horses}.  he still hates diaper changes with a passion & drives me crazy by throwing food on the floor when he decides he's done.  he thinks yogurt & oatmeal are best eaten by both the spoon in your right hand & by the handful in your left hand.  yeah, it gets messy.  on saturday mornings it is not uncommon for him to walk up to sam with a remote in his hand & say "football! yayyy!"  sam's a pretty proud father.


he's still wearing some 12-18 month clothes, a lot of 18-24 month clothes & 2T pajamas.  wait, 2T?  you gotta be kidding me.  he loves to snuggle in the mornings & after naptime & is really just the sweetest little boy in the whole wide world.

and?  he is still so dang cute.


love this kid.

  4. 20 months! Eeek! He's going to be joining the 2 y/o club in NO time. Bennett turns 2 next week and I'm kinda freaking out. Sorry about the tantrums that Parker is having... it is a total toddler thing. He's just feeling it out, testing his boundaries. Through that though, he sounds like such a fun kid... I haven't seen him in so long. Time for a playdate. For realz. No more kidding around.

  6. So very cute! Happy 20 months, Parker!

    Mason magically grew out of his intense hate of diaper changes sometime around 21 months. *knock on wood* So there is still hope for Parker!

  7. 2T? Don't get me started, sister. My TWO YEAR OLD is wearing 4T jammas!!!!!! I swear they make them smaller purposely. The kid isn't even allowed to be that size, yet. I never gave permission!!!
