Easton has more personality than I ever thought he'd have. I don't mean that in a bad way, but he was a pretty mellow baby. He just sort of went with the flow and was perfectly content sitting and looking at books and playing quietly by himself. He was a very easy baby, and we were extremely blessed because of that. Around 18 months, though, a new side of him started to emerge, and it's only gotten stronger the closer he gets to age Two.
But, I had to know that his easy-going baby personality wouldn't necessarily translate to his toddler years. Don't get me wrong, he's a very good little boy. But this dude's attitude is fierce. 'No' and 'Mine' have become his is favorite words, and when he doesn't get his way? He gives the dirtiest looks -- I'm talking the STINK eye here people. It's serious business. I really need to get a video because it's quite ridiculous, but cute at the same time. Despite his little 'tude, he keeps me laughing on the daily, always doing the silliest things, and is pretty easily entertained.
Still sleeping wonderfully and taking 2-3 hour naps (most days), though I feel he's starting to shift a little with his sleep schedule, we'll see. I still cloth diaper him, though not as much as I did when he was smaller. I try to use cloth when we're at home, but he wears disposable's at night and when we're out of the house.
He gets along decently well with his big Brother but tends to only want to play when it's his idea. He is usually the one to initiate rough housing, but completely over-exaggerates, whines & cries when things don't go his way. Typical little brother behavior.
Easton is definitely a Mama's boy. He has to be touching me or following me around at all times and has been known to throw a fit if he find me. It's really quite sweet -- except when I just want a minute alone to use the bathroom.
Current obsessions: Dinosaurs (pretty sure he gets this from Bennett), Buzz, Snakes, Finding Nemo, Trains, Bubbles, & playing games on the iPhone/iPad.
Favorite foods: Strawberries, Avocado, Pancakes, Bagels & Cream Cheese, Pepperoni, Chocolate Milk, and Fruit Snacks.
Words: Too many to name. He can repeat pretty much anything we say and talks up a storm on most days, and often uses short phrases and sentences. Though, he doesn't usually talk much around people he doesn't know.
I'm truly impressed with the leaps & bounds that he makes every day, he has such a desire to learn. I like to just sit back and watch his little wheels turn, turn away as he's figuring something out. I thank my Heavenly Father every single day for Easton, and Bennett. I'm thankful they have each other, and together, they bless our family so richly! xoxo
