Josh is 15 months old today! How the time flies. I can't believe how big he is. He has changed so much even since his first birthday. Josh understands so much of what we say now. I love it. He can say a lot of words... He says ball, dog, yes, no, book, shoes, momma, dadda, Dorothy(door...th..e),no dont, bob (bob the builder), water (wawa), bottle (baba), door, Josh, horse - I probably missed something, but those are the basics:) He loves animals and balls and he is a total people person. He loves vacations. He will throw a little fit on the way to the store but then on a road trip he hardly makes a peep. I swear it's like he knows we're going somewhere fun. He's never been the greatest eater but lately he's been eating much better and it shows!!! Much to my pleasure. This morning he drank a bottle, ate oatmeal and half of a little breakfast sandwich- that is A LOT for him He does love water though and LOVES his milk-baba's. He gets SO excited. He is finally sleeping through the night- when we're not on vacation. No more 2am parties. Thank Goodness. He is the sweetest little boy. He's very good at giving loves. He is so sweet and surprisingly careful with little babies. He likes babies a lot and likes to rub their hair. When we go over to other houses, he's often toting around a doll and a ball. He has learned in the last month how to go down the stairs- it took a while considering we don't have stairs. He loves to climb on our coffee table and couch. He climbs onto our shoe shelf and onto the couch. He give high fives and knuckles- my aunt taught him knuckles. He is good at cleaning up his things. He's thrown several things away in the last several months. The latest thing being our remote. He loves to clean the house. He is always getting into the broom and wants to help me sweep and vacuum. When I mop or if he drops something on the kitchen floor he gets out a rag- of course he knows where they are being as silly as he is- and starts rubbing the floor with it. A huge smile on his face. It is hilarious. He LOVES LOVES LOVES going outside. He wishes he could live out there and throws several fits a day when we can't go outside. They are similar to the fits he throws anytime his daddy goes anywhere without him. He LOVES LOVES LOVES LOVES LOVES his daddy and wants to be with him every second he's home. Wyatt can't even change his clothes after work without Josh throwing a fit.lol. He sure is opinionated and knows exactly what he wants. The first year he was very attached to me and Wyatt couldn't even feed him. Now he clings to daddy. He just barely started getting attached to his lion and blankets. This morning he refused to eat without his lion and he wanted to feed himself. Good thing it's wash day:) I love how passionate he is about everything. It drives me nuts sometimes- Wyatt says it's because Josh and I are so similar which is probably true- but I love my little boy so much. His stubbornness will someday be a very good thing. Sometimes I go in his room after he's fallen asleep and just watch him. His cute little self. I love that he's growing up and yet it makes me sad at the same time. I just want as much time with him as I can get. His cute little laugh and his hugs and kisses and smile that I love so much. If only time didn't go so fast and at the same time I love how he feels so big and is always learning how to do something new. I am so blessed to be his mother.

Easter Weekend was so fun! It was so fun to have a child that can actually participate in the fun activities. Saturday morning we went to a neighborhood Easter egg hunt. So fun!!! 12 eggs and a prize at the end. Josh got this rocket that shoots in the air. It's a tie between who likes it more- Dad or Josh.lol.
|These are our Easter flowers. At around 10pm on Saturday night, I decided I needed flowers for Easter... So I went and got these:)|
|So I overdid it a little with the blocks.lol.|
|Easter Morning- Someone was a little grumpy. This is when we finally got him to stop crying. Poor kid.|

Wyatt and I decided to visit Miranda and Justin for President's Day weekend. Then Mara and Roger and Abby, Morgan, Garrett, Grant and Hallie all decided to come as well. It turned out to be one of the best weekends/trips I've ever had!!! We did everything. We went to the park, shopped, went to the temple, went to the Water show on the strip, went to a movie, hung out and played games and of course ate lots of amazing food- made by Miranda. It was definitely my kind of trip. It was so hard to go home!!! I just wanted to stay forever. It was like memorial day all over again. You want to cry when you're getting in the car to go home. I think we might have to make it a tradition:)

The week and a half leading up to Valentine's Day, Josh was sick. Fever of 101 on and off. Then I got sick on Sunday... So we went in for his one year wellness check on Monday Feb. 13th. Josh has two ear infections and I have strep. Then Wyatt gets it... This is bound to be interesting... So I get the shot. Josh gets the bubble gum medicine and Wyatt get's the pill. All the same stuff. haha. So I'm thinking we should postpone Valentine's Day until we're all feeling better. TaDa!!! Our medicine- boy do I love medicine kicks in and does wonderful things. So instead of getting our babysitter's kids sick, we spent our Valentine's Day yet again with our little Valentine.
It's becoming a tradition. Wyatt as usual the wonderful husband- bought me these beautiful flowers:) I LOVE flowers!!! We got a HEART pizza from papa murphy's and the best part of all... I got to watch the movie I rented a week ago for this very important date... Leap Year. Such a cute movie. Needless to say. We had a great night:) Thank goodness for modern medicine
