16 months

November 20, 2012

Sweet little brother, sixteen months have passed since you were born and not a day goes by without me giving thanks to the Lord for you.  Your hilarious personality, sweet disposition, and playful determination make for a very fun, noisy, and lively home.  I’m always amazed at just how quiet things become when you go down for your nap.

So how about a list of 10 Peter-isms to celebrate 16 months with you…

  1. You have become quite the talker these days!  You attempt to say every word we throw at you and you say them with such confidence.
  2. Whenever you hurt yourself or are inconsolable, you instantly stop crying when I start talking very, very quietly in your ear.
  3. You love making animal sounds- pig, elephant, snake, dog, cow, horse, sheep, monkey, lion, bear, tiger, and donkey are your favorites.
  4. You are are the great imitator.  Everything your brother does, you try someway to mimic him.
  5. You could eat lemons, limes, and grapefruit all day long.  You are your momma’s boy.
  6. You love to run from us and hide in little corners or behind doors and just wait quietly until we come and find you.
  7. You love books more than I thought possible for a 16-month old.  I think this started out as an imitation of your brother, but then realizing how much you enjoyed them as well.  When you grab a book, turn around, and scoot yourself backwards and just plop down in my lap- that’s my cue to cut that housework thing out!
  8. Upon buckling you in your car seat, you immediately take your shoes off.  And I’m more happy than I really should be that you’ve recently started leaving your socks on.
  9. You love your Daddy.  I mean love love him.  There is a party at the front door every day around 5 pm when he comes home.
  10. You still love to dance and sing and clap and laugh.  You are full of life.

I could go on.  But lists and words and videos and pictures always fall a bit short, don’t they?  Happy 16-month birthday, Peter William.  I’m so happy we get to live our lives with you.
