September 26

Joshua is 16 months today! This past month has definitely been a lot of fun, as we've watched him discover new things and grow in his personality and abilities to communicate with us. Some of his obvious developments are:

* his walking is taking off - he tries to run, but soon does a face-plant as his feet is not moving as fast as his will! He still walks in a "drunkard" stance - arms out, totting side-to-side. But, oh so cute!
* he's moved into size 5 shoes!!
* he's recently developed a smile that we call "the cheeky smile" - huge smile, showing off his pearly whites, eyes closed. He usually does this in a state of mischeviousness (is this a word?). He knows that he's not suppose to do something, but is going to try and get away with it anyway! It's hard to say "no" to him with a straight face when this happens!
* he's using more words now, like up, ball, dog, duck, "meow", and the most recent acquisition, "no" (we knew the day would come!).
* he likes to beat on Reggie with his plastic yellow baseball bat. Actually, they play pretty well together! Most of Joshua's toys have Reggie's teeth-marks on them!
* Speaking of teeth, have we told you that Joshua has a full mouth of teeth already!? We go to his first dentist appointment next week!

Joshua continues to delight us in so many ways. We are so thankful that he's healthy and transitioning nicely into Toddlerhood (although, I still relish his baby moments and wonder if there's a way I can stop him from growing up too fast. Suggestions anyone?)
