Michael is 18 months old today

I cannot believe my sweet baby is a year and half old today. It really is true how quickly time flies as it feels like we were only just bringing him home from the hospital.

Some fun facts for Michael at 18 months ~~~

We have been having a blast lately as Michael is learning so much and really adding to his vocabulary. Michael can now name most of his body parts; head, nose mouth, toes, pee-pee, belly or pipa, huevoes and boobies(thanks, Jaime), make animal noises like wow-wow, meow, and quack, and some of his colors, especial puh puh (purple). He also loves to say shoes, socks, fish, choo choo(doo doo), beep beep, yes and my absolute favorite Duh-Do (love you).

Michael's favorite toys right now are his train James, his power wheels car, and his stuffed dog Wow-wow, who he drags everywhere by his ear.

Michael's favorite foods right now are Goldfish, grapes, peas, rice, spaghetti and french fries.

Last but not least are our Mickey pictures. It is really difficult to get an active toddler to sit still for pictures!

A Visit from Grandma Eleanor

Grandma Eleanor came from Los Angeles for a visit this past weekend. We haven't seen her since Michael's first birthday and we were so happy to have her here. We spent a long weekend hanging out and letting her enjoy her grandson. Michael and her were so cute together and there were lots of smiles, hugs and kisses.

First Zoo Visit

We took our first family trip to the zoo. Even though Michael and I were both sick, we all had a great time. Since it was a Thursday and about 2 hours before closing, the zoo was virtually empty and we had our run of the place. The Philadelphia Zoo has a few great exhibits including Big Cat Falls, which Michael adored. We were so close to the animals, we could have touched them, well, through the plate glass...

How cute is this lioness!
