17 months old

Aaarrrgghhh....I'm a pirate!
Can you say cheese?
Mad and wanting the camera!
Can you believe this? Chase turned 17 months old on Saturday. We almost have a 1 1/2 year old....seems like just yesterday that I started this blog and was posting ultrasound pictures. He is just getting so grown up, showing us things I never imagined and is just smart as a whip. Now, I know that I am (just a little) biased, but he just amazes me everyday. I guess being a first time mom, you just don't realize how they pick up and learn the things they do. And being an only child, I never really had the opportunity to witness the day by day growth of a child before Chase came along.

Congratulations to Andrew & Stephanie on their wedding on Saturday. It was beautiful and such a gorgeous day for a wedding too. Chase and Gavin had fun together in church and the reception. Chase did really well for spending 7 hours out and about. He completely wore us out though! Our backs were killing us by the end of the day, we don't usually hold him as much as we did on Saturday! He is one solid kid for sure!

His vocabulary continues to grow every day and he is just repeating more and more words. He is saying (in his own way) words like Cardinals, yellow, hot dog, cookie, diaper. I got him a set of alphabet flash cards and he just loves going through them. He loves playing with bags, taking things out and putting them back in. Sunday morning, he unpacked his diaper bag and was trying to put everything on that was inside. He had a bib slung on his back and his pajama bottoms on his head....hence the pirate picture above!

I love that he loves to smile for the camera... I can't seem to get many of those out of Gavin these days. He just looks at us like "seriously, another picture".
