1 1/2. Whaaaa?

Bennett is 18 months old! WHAT? When did this happen? I know I say that every month, but seriously. When did it happen??
He's been doing the cutest things lately. Here are just a couple:

When we get off of the elevator in our building, he grabs the keys and searched for our house key, and he finds it every single time. He walks right up to our door and tries to put the key in the lock. The kid is smart.

He waves and high fives everyone (well almost everyone). And now his new thing is to stick out his pointer finger and have you tap it with your pointer finger. I will say "bzzzzzzt" and he'll stick out his little finger. It's super cute.

When he's drinking his sippy cup, instead of setting it down on the ground or on the coffee table- he'll walk over to the highest surface he can find, like the table or kitchen counter, and put it there. Then he'll go back to it when he's ready for more. He likes to feel like a big boy I guess. Ha ha.

His favorite movie is still Toy Story 3. If he's ever in a bad mood, I will just ask him "Do you want to watch Woody & Buzz?" And he'll get up and run over to the TV, waddle back and forth and wait patiently for me to turn it on. From then on out, he's glued to the TV. His favorite part is at the end credits, when they play the spanish version of "You've Got a Friend in Me": "Aye Un Amigo En Mi" HE LOVES IT!

He loves his Yia Yia (grandma in greek). In fact, he's on a sleepover at her house right now. Yia Yia is that only other person that he will really cuddle and be really affectionate with. I mean, sometimes he'll give kisses to other women (he loves the ladies), but Yia Yia is extra special to him.

He can unlock my iPhone and iPad. Yes he can. And actually, I wouldn't' say that this is really cute.... it's more annoying than anything. Somehow, he has figured out how to open the free apps and pick "purchase the upgrade" or whatever. Every time I catch him with one of those devices, he's almost always about to buy something. Ha ha.

Whew. I could sit here all day and name off cute little things he does. Seriously. I just love this little man. He's the best. He throws some EPIC tantrums, but he's also the sweetest, most loving little guy in the world. He's SO much fun to be around.

I love all the new things our little ones do. I was just sitting down recording more new things in my daughter's journal. Too much time gets by before I remember to do so.

So cute. Landon loves to stick out his pointer finger so we can touch it. He has yet to watch Toy Story but I'm sure it's coming. :D Also, where in the world did you get that adorable shirt from? It's so cute.

awww happy 18 months B man! He is sounding more and more like ryan every day, with the keys to the door, temper tantrums, and the phones! love it! he is so cute. Warning though- 18 months is HARD I hope he is good for you but if not done worry your sweet boy will come back eventually.

aww, he IS the sweetest most loving little guy! We had so much fun together last night. We need to do that more often, not just when you're out of town!

I love that he feel so close to me:)
Happy year and a half Bennett!

I was just thinking that my D will be 18 months soon and it blows my mind. Seriously, where did the time go? B is soooo cute Mandy and he is looking older each time you post pictures of him (not that you want to hear that..hehe). But, his sweetness just pours through the pictures. He is going to be a little heart breaker! D hasn't figured out how to unlock our phones yet and I hope it take a long time...that would drive me crazy! lol

Love, Chelsea said...

Oh my gosh, he is such a little man! Lily can open my iPhone up too! These kids and their technology! She hasn't purchased anything yet, but she does internet searches for he weirdest things...
