My sweet Wyatt,
As of Friday, you are officially 16 months old.
You are the sweetest, most loving boy, and continually bless us each and every day.
You are running around all the time, and would prefer to stay outside all day if I would let you.
The weather just turned a bit cooler, and we have some beautiful evenings to play outside. It's momma's favorite time of day.
You love to run and play in the backyard, in the sandbox, and on the swing set.
I cannot keep shoes on you.
Your sister is your best friend.
Whatever she is doing you like to be right there with her.
You just recently have taken an interest in books. Taylor is beginning to learn most of her letters, so she loves to show you books and teach you what she knows.
You are starting to talk more.
You say momma, dada, ball, milk, night night, sister, more, ow-side, deer, and my favorite: what's that :) you also say "mi" for mimi, you can say oma, ba ba for ba paw, and am-ma for the great grandmas. When it is time to brush your teeth, ((which you love by the way)) you say teeth-teeth and start grinning.
You like to jabber a lot of other words as well, and I just nod my head and pretend to understand what you are saying. :)
You love to blow kisses, and you have the most adorable wave to say bye bye.
You just spent a weekend at your Oma's house, and you love to be there with all your cousins. You and your cousin Cassidy are only 7 months apart and she loves you to pieces.
Sometimes you can be a bit of a momma's boy, but I am not complaining. :) Cuddles are hard to come by with you, so I will take all the extra I can get.
Even though you want me quite a bit, you and your sister are so in love with your daddy. At the end of the day you can recognize his truck coming down the road, and you, Tay, and Fifi all run to the window, eager to greet him. He barely has time to get his boots off before you both are tackling him, ready to play.
Your daddy loves you so much and is so proud of you. He can't wait to teach you how to hunt, fish, and throw a football.
You love to go out to the garage with him and "help" work on whatever he is doing.
You look just like him and I can tell you, you will continue to grow up to be a handsome man. I am a blessed momma.
I love you sweet boy. Happy 16 month birthday.
