Nixon is now 16 month! He is such a funny little kid. He is also very smart. He knows different sounds animals make, like Monkey's and Cows. He knows where his eyes, nose and belly are. He can count to 3. When I say 1... He will say, "tew.. TWEE!" And then sometimes he will do it all on his own. When he wants somthing he will say, "pleease" Or if I say, "How do you ask?" he will say, "Pleease!" He loves music and likes to sing. He sings the beginning of happy birthday, patty cake and the Wonder Pets theme song. When he see's something he likes he goes, "OOOOH" with his mouth wide open. Haha it's the cutest thing. A month ago we started a nightly routine with him. It has been so nice. Ev and I will take turns doing his routine with him. At 8:30 we give him a bath if he needs one, get him in his jammies, brush his teeth, read some books to him in the rocking chair and then lay him on the couch with his bottle and blanky and then put him in his crib for Nie Nie time. It has been working really well so far. It has been so nice for Ev and I to have time to ourselves to hang out and relax. Before Nix was a little night owl and would stay up into the night with us. Im glad that has changed.
My little Helper..
The other day Nixon followed me around the house and helped me with some house cleaning! He helped me put the clothes from the washer into the drying and then helped hang some shirts on the drying rack. He did this all on his own. I had a pile of wet shirts sitting on the bed and I was hanging them up. And he went over to the pile and started helping me. He also put some of Ev's wet shirts away into my dresser drawer haha what a good helper!
Huggies has these jean diapers our right now and I thought it would be fun to take some pictures of the boys in them...
The glasses store
A couple weeks ago we get to the eye glass store because Ev needed some new glasses. While we were there we tried some kid glasses on Nix and showed him how he looked in the mirrior. Ever since then he as been obsessed with putting on glasses.
Water Water Water. Nixon loves the water.
Washington Rec Center
Last week we went to the Washington Rec Center with Belle, Dan and Haiven. It was a lot of fun! Nixon had a blast! He loved going down the slides.
