18 months

Marks the beginning of many things...many changes. reading a book

He is talking so much and imitating everything we say, even phrases. Good and bad! He loves to learn Italian; bacio, ciao, via, andiamo. He says cow, dog, cat, bye bye, nite nite, wow, car, bus, love you and many animal sounds.

The only thing he will sit still for is a book and has many favorites. He is now running every where and is very physically active; climbing couches and stairs. One of his favorite things to do is pull objects out of cabinets, boxes and drawers. And then put them back in. He loves to pull tp off the roll and splish, splash in the tub!

He is the sweetest baby. He gives hugs, kisses and snuggles often. His smile is so contagious and giggle is even better. We play chase often; he will smile, laugh and then run toward you, fall into your arms laughing.


This summer has been so great outdoors, splashpads, sprinklers and swimming pools. He loves all kinds of fruit and eats pretty much anything else. One of my favorite things is his love of music. He will sing old macdonald had a farm. (E-I-E-I-O) and loves to do the motions to many others like twinkle twinkle little star and the wheels on the bus.

I also love that he gets so excited to meet new people especially babies or kids. He is a little overwhelming and loud to some but he gets like a little puppy excited to see new people. Very social!

big boy

We have this little fire truck with lights and buttons you can push that make siren sounds and say different phrases. Chris taught him to make the walkie-talkie noise and put his hand over his mouth. It is the funniest thing! He will push the button and do it over and over again.

Baby K is moving up to the big boy room at daycare and he will now be in a nursery class at church; which is so wonderful for me. I can now be present at church and hear something other than the baby. He is sweet but busy, busy boy especially in church. Anyway, it is really nice to have some time in church again!

The federal law for foster care states that after so much time in care the termination of parental rights (TPR) will be written. If we go to trial though it could take over 3 years. We hope we will not have to go to trial. But things are moving forward ever so slowly....we will try to be patient. It is easier at times than others.

We love this age and could not be happier to have baby K in our family right now!

I love the picture of him in the water. So darling. AND I love your new profile pic. It came through as an untitled post on my feed and I clicked over to comment on it only to find there wasn't a post, but then saw it as your profile pic. It's absolutely gorgeous.
