Man Cub: 19 Months

Sweet little Chimwemwe,

We love you, we love you, we love you!  Silly, silly boy!  Your joy and your love are contagious.  Your teachers at school and at church rave about you all the time.  You are making such sweet friendships, and we love watching them blossom.  You are infatuated with your horse Sandee.  Bailey is still your favorite dog, and you seem to constantly want to be surrounded by animals.  Just fall in love with Jesus first, baby.  That's our prayer for you each day.

The little tree frog sleeper is still in love with his sleep!  Yay!  Keep it up, buddy.  This past week has been a little rough because you're cutting 4 teeth, but once you're asleep, you're asleep.  Yippee!
Nothing here as changed.  Same old picky eater.  One of my dearest friends comforted me greatly when she said she's convinced we either get good eaters or we don't, and that at this particular age, there's not much to do about it.  

You are now fearless around the horses!  Getting Sandee for you has been such a dream!  We still have a lot of horse safety to teach you, but you're getting it.  And Sandee and the others adore you.  It takes my breathe away to see 1200 pound beasts following you around so very, very sweetly.  You are learning farm chores like filling up feed buckets with hay from the hay bale and feeding the chickens. When you ride on the big tractor, you know right where the horn button is, and you know that if the RPMs rev down, you're about to stop.  That doesn't make you happy at all!  You have your Papa's (my dad) hair-thick waves that won't stay put for anything.  I guess that's an accomplishment?!  You can jump now, and you've turned everything into a trampoline. You are a puzzle master and you like to color with markers (ColorWonder). The majority of the time, you correctly identify blue, green, yellow, and red. The Mega Blok set you got for Christmas has become a great new toy.  You very much enjoy building towers and forts.  New words: pictures, owie, eyebrow, (his own name), train, choo choo, yucky, milk, mac, bucket, mitten, flower, cheese, read, outside, playground, lights, clean up, jump up, nurse, phone, basket, room, necklace, fox, keys, town, love you, TV, wet, piano, potty, one, two, three, grape, flag, cow, jacket, bow, buckle, doctor, catch, float, help, cookie, tickle, that way, dance, spoon, snap, veggies, heart, leaf, happy, stem, house, barn, Sandee, applesauce, blue, green, red, yellow, pink, chin, hair, dolphin, oatmeal, raisins, breakfast, stairs, diver, shark, grouper, kong, 'chuff' (what a tiger says), tiger, thumb, hands, beads, pot, much, chair, ladder, rub a dub dub, swoosh, dip dip, hoops, Mickey, fries, night night, sticker

All the same things you've been liking along with puzzles, coloring, watching scuba diving videos, Mickey Mouse, blocks, and books, books, and more books!  You've also found an even deeper desire to bang away on the piano.  Play, baby, play!

Solid veggies, most meat, occasionally you don't like getting dressed, when Aggie Belle gets too close to your food.
