Watson at 18 months

Watson will be 18 months tomorrow-truly so hard to believe. I can't imagine what our family would be like without him, or even more so, what Hayes would be like if she didn't have her sidekick! They are a mess together, so funny and entertaining for each other. These are sweet and crazy days with their little ages. I have been awful at keeping monthly posts on him, poor baby. He is so precious, and FULL of life. His one little speed is set on high always. He has the curliest little blonde hair that has yet to be trimmed. It reminds me of my Grandmama and Ease's hair from the back. He is the biggest snuggle bug, especially at bedtime. He loves to be rocked and held, which is funny because he hardly ever slows down. But he will crawl in your lap and say "rock, rock, rock" which means you better bust out a song really quick if you want to enjoy that ball of sweetness being still in your lap for a moment! He also doesn't mind letting you hold him like a baby, something I still do often. I don't want to think about him getting any bigger.
One of his major loves is food. The boy EATS, EATS, EATS. ALL THE TIME. Nathan and I always say we hope he plays sports because he is going to have to start running off all this food he eats!! Seriously, our grocery bill is getting higher each week. He also loves sweeping with the big broom or little broom and gets the dustpan out too and pretends to shake it into the trashcan. He also loves to play in the play kitchen and cook and stir things up. He is always working on something. he will grab a plate or bowl and spoon and sit down at the table to stir. It's hilarious to watch! He loves books, mainly animal books, and knows most all the animal sounds. He is hardly ever, ever, ever without his paci or lovie, which is something we need to start working on soon! He loves to grab your hand and pull you around the house to find both.
He loves being outside and getting dirty. He can now climb to the top of our playset and is really good at going up but still needs help coming back down the ladder. He loves his swing and to slide, and now lately loves the glider. He also loves his bat and ball, but doesn't like for Hayes to use it. He wants to hit every time, no catching for him! He says lots of words and repeats most everything we say. He loves songs and says the last word of each line. He is learning and soaking up so much. He wants to be just as big as Hayes and refuses to not be treated the same. Whatever she has he wants too-juicebox, crayons, markers, candy, etc. He will march his little self to the outside refrigerator and get get his own juicebox if she doesn't bring him one. Such a determined little one!! Oh and he loves to brush his teeth but doesn't want you to help. Sometimes when we come home he will run straight to the bathroom for his toothbrush. I'm glad he wants clean teeth! Speaking of, last weekend he had an accident and fell flat on his face on the hardwoods and I was sure he knocked every tooth out of his mooth. There was blood everywhere. So far they all look fine and are intact, thank you Lord.
Happy 18 months, big boy. You are SO precious and SO special to our family and we all love you so much, Bay Bay Watsa Bam Bam!!

I cannot believe how big they are getting. We miss y'all so much! Lily tells me all the time I miss Hayes and Anna Leigh, when are we going to play with them:( Makes me sad that she made such sweet friends and we had to leave.
Allie is the same way with her lovie and paci, I'm not sure how we are going to get rid of it! Hope y'all are doing well. Miss you sweet friend.
