And just like that he's 18 months

Somehow, somehow C is already 18 months, and it's been far too long since I took his pictures. The other day we went on a family date, and I knew this would be my best shot to snap a few. I say this at every new stage, but this whole toddlerhood is totally my favorite stage. The words he are learning, the body language, the giggles, the level of activity, I love it all. I love having a boy who is so adventurous, tender hearted, giggly, and life of the crowd. Right now, husband and I are his best friends, and I know one day not far off, that won't be the case any more. So, I'm cherishing this time. Hard core.

 I've been keeping all this as a note on my iphone, but it's time to document his monthly developments here. I haven't done a monthly update since 12 months (will you look how LITTLE he was, ugh time passing). Anyways, here goes...
