Mamahood Styled


// 22 months //

22 months, although I don't count O's age by months, and won't keep track of this once he turns two, it helps me remember what he is up to. Which I never ever want to forget. But I already do. #mamahood
I'll switch over to monthly highlights after two. Wah, stop typing two, J.
I guess I should start planning the big II.

31 lbs. whoa, baby!
This baby boy is obsessed with trains, trucks and automobiles! & tractors, and airplanes and anything with an engine. He grabs his little cars and makes them go vroom and our hearts melt like no other. Seeing him play independently is amazing.
If we sit him on the potty, he'll go each time but he won't ask to go on his own. He tells us when he pees and thinks when he toots is hilarious (typical). If we ask him if he pooped, the answer is ALWAYS "nnnnooooooo."

This baby boy is a happy little dude. Yet boy, oh, boy he loves to test our patience. He is extremely playful, and likes to push the envelope to see what he can get away with. Oh, no hitting Honey (our dog)...well, what about if I put my leg on her and push ever-so-gently but just strong enough to be on her? Oh, no hitting, what if I just tap you, instead? Oh, no touching this, what if I just put one finger on it? Oh man, I have said it since he was in the womb, we are IN for it!

So this month, O has acquired this new thing of begging to come to bed with us. He wants to read his books in our bed and then begs to lay with mama. Which then becomes a "sit down" command to us, instead of laying down. Then I have to literally hold him down on me until he falls asleep. As much as it is a bad habit and I am still setting myself up for failure, my boy is not a when he wants to cuddle with me each night, and tuck his little chubby hands at my sides, how can I resist? Last week, he woke up several times screaming and not wanting to stay in his room. Needless to say, we ended up with near black eyes by morning by chubby strong feet.

  New Words: 
EVERYTHING! Seriously, it is the cutest things! Simple sentences (of 3-4 words) are being formed too. His little voice is the bestest. I remember us wondering what it would sound like and it really is perfection to us. I love that recently he has remembered some of his sign language (that we started at about 8 months old) and has been using simultaneous to his words. 

Favorite Foods: 
cheese sticks
macaroni and cheese
This boy eats SO much BUT mainly only during the day. Dinner has become hit or miss. We have become "airplane" and "choo choo train" experts with tiny silverware. 

Favorite Things: 
Reminding us of things he did earlier that day
playing with Honey
Nana + Grandma
Watching anything with an engine
Animals (specifically cows, dogs and cats)
gardening with Nana
Going for walks with Nana
Going to the park 
chasing the cats
Signature Moves: 
Throwing a ball at someone and THEN saying "Catch!"
Waiting for the mailman every day, and then delivering mail with him at Nana's. 
Not wanting to sit in his high chair anymore. Ahhh!
Skipping naps- heck no kid!
Giving bear hugs.
Giving massages.
He says sorry by going up to us, putting his head down, rubbing it on us, hugging and then saying "oh-ee" with a huge smile. 
Stopping mid-cry to laugh at something. Oh boy. 

Mommy's Proudest Moment: 
I spanked him ( i know, new low) and he laughed. Touche, O, touche. 
Oh and saying shit and him repeating it. Nope, not cool. My sailor mouth is bad. 

Daddy's Proudest Moment:
Telling O to eat his poop, jokingly of course, and O actually trying to. 
& of course, the more we tell him not to, the more he pretends to. 

This Month's Highlights:
-Mama and Daddy went to Austin, TX to visit Titi Squirrel and you got to stay with your grandparents for the weekend! You were SO happy and I expected for you to ignore me when you saw us. But you did the opposite. You were grinning and flung yourself into my arms. Gave me a kiss, hit me and ran away. My mama heart exploded. 
-We celebrated Halloween and you went trick-or-treating for the first time. We made you a trash truck costume that you loved. It was a great hit! Everyone complimented you! We also passed out candy and you liked putting it in all the kids' baskets. 
-We crafted a lot this month! Lots of messy times with paints, food, chalk, etc!
-You got to hang out with Asher one day and another with Natalia and her friends. 
-You ate a whole slice of cake by yourself. 
-Of course, you worked out a lot!
-we spent 4 days in L.A. and our daily Facetime sessions with your grandparents and titi really helped out because you knew them immediately. We had a great time and celebrated Titi Anita and Titi Lonnie's graduations. 
-We also got to visit Titi Isa and Tio Jake. 
-Lots of park fun!
-You modeled for mama's clothing co.
-You ate cookies. Lots!
