17 1/2 Months...

Warning: this post is long overdue and contains many pictures of Zane!

Wow, Zane will be 18 months next month! He is definitely becoming more of a little boy and less of a baby. It seems like he does something new everyday. Within the last few weeks, he finally made the transition from two naps to one, and this has been great because he's been sleeping in most mornings 'til almost 8! He is gaining his independence in several areas. He likes to help me out around the house, especially in the kitchen- specifically "reorganizing" some of our drawers...

and sorting the tupperware... (this was before Luke got the childproof locks on, now he cannot get into the cabinets, only the drawers as evident from the last picture!).
He loves to help out with the laundry...
as well as sweeping.
He likes to feed himself, especially things like yogurt...
and slowly, but surely, he is getting better at using utensils...

Luke taught him how to put raspberries on his fingers.
I finally decided it was time to let him experiment with crayons- he will actually scribble a little, but each coloring session almost always ends with at least one little bite of crayon in his mouth...


He even wants to blow dry and comb his own hair (yes, that's right, I said blow dry- the kid has a lot of hair, okay!).


Here are some other random shots from the last month or so...

with Grandma Barb
I love that smile!
Go Cardinals!
This is how I found Zane after one nap- he had slept almost 4 hours due to an extremely late night for him the night before. I heard him stirring and looked at the monitor to find him sitting up with both legs hanging out of the crib.

Fun times with friends...
and a few more of my sweet son...





Zane, we are enjoying getting to know the little person that you are becoming each day. Thank you for filling our days with laughter and bringing us so much joy! We love you so much, sweet boy and are so proud of you!

Ah, he's so sweet. He definitely looks like he's 'all boy' getting into the drawers, etc! So fun.

Love the Aggie sweatshirt, of course.

We have a drawer re-organzier living here as well. It's crazy. We're gonna have to keep these two separated until this phase passes!

Love all the video updates, I can't believe how active he is getting. When is your next trip to Texas? I need a Zane fix! We love that boy - he may be one of the cutest boys I have ever seen! His eyes are still amazing!
