Just because I was feeling like this dude needed a blog update and I realized that today he is exactly 18 months old. So brace yourself for the excitement coming your way.
He is a first class, capital S, stinker! He is his older sister in a little boy body. Which you can imagine what kind of combination that is. Determined, persistent, talkative, active, loud, friendly. You get the idea. He may be only one and a half years old but he thinks he’s more like sixteen.
But I mean, really. I can’t even. I could eat this boy up. Those giant blue eyes and the longest eye lashes you’ve ever seen.
And most of the time when he’s being a stinker (except when he’s been awake for two hours and it’s 3am) we’re trying not to laugh. He thinks he, well he actually does, rule this house. And what he says, or attempts to say, is what is going to happen. Unless you’re geared up for a major wrestling match to get him to do things your way. He is a little tornado leaving a disaster in his wake where ever we go. It is getting difficult to actually take this dude out in public. Seriously. And I’m starting to re-think those two white sofas I purchased in my more naive days.
He gets so frustrated with Millie that she’s not more interesting. He wants to play with her or push her around or wrestle or whatever. Which should make this parenting of four kids close in age even easier when Millie starts moving around. Or not. No. Not even close.
He is a boy who loves his trucks, cars, buses, anything with wheels. Maybe even more so than his big brother did at this age. He always carefully lines them up in a row. All day, everyday. It’s a very detailed process his little brain has.
There are so many similar personality characteristics between Greta and this boy. And one of those is he loves to swing. He just wants to be in the swing all day long. And because he’s a big boy now no baby swing will do. He’s gotta do the real thing.
Here’s some swinging love footage for your viewing pleasure.
Awe, little Woocas. How boring would our little suburban life be with out you to provide our
