18 months

Seriously?  Has it really been a year and a half since this?
Or a year since this?
Or six months since this?
Patrick amazes me every day.  He looks so grown up.
He's also talking more and more.  Just today I confirmed to myself that he calls Erin "Yayay."  Every time I called to Erin, he'd look at her and call "Yayay!"  He calls Matt the normal "Dada" but he calls me "Mom-mom" rather than "Mama."  He is also good that the nonsense words like "Yay," "uh-oh," and "whee."  He says "wow," "dah-yee" (doggy), still says "tssss" for please, and "down."  He also says "dood dob!" whenever he does something he's proud of, and he'll clap at me expectantly if I don't also clap and tell him "good job!"

He's recently mastered the art of straw drinking, and thinks it's the coolest thing ever.

Don't you love the way he wrinkles his nose???

And a video I uploaded a while back but forgot to put on the blog

And I also forgot to mention we got bunk beds!  Erin loves loves loves her bed.  We need to get a twin mattress for Patrick, though, so he's still on the crib mattress on the floor until further notice.

those kids are so cute. I'm so excited to see them again. I love the way Patrick was head butting Erin.
