Our Little Boy Isn't So Little Anymore :(

The last time I officially blogged about Baby G was for his first birthday, nearly a YEAR ago!

I know, I'm sorry.

Since it's been so long, I wasn't really sure how to give a proper update on what's been going on with him, so I'm just going to throw some random cute pictures and stats your way, starting with a BIG milestone that happened last week (that I'm pretty sure I'm still not ready for)... he's no longer using a paci.

Yeah, you read that right. :(

Of course, I'm happy that we've hit the milestone and yada-yada-yada, but I sure will miss how something as simple as a paci can make him look like my little baby still.

(Of course, I don't have a recent picture of him with a paci, so let's go wayyy back)

The whole process was really smooth, and I think a lot of that had to do with us only giving him his paci for naps and bedtime, which we started doing when he was 15 months. We weren't going to take it away until he turned two (which is still three months away), but he's been chewing through them and we didn't want to risk him choking on them.

His last day with a paci was last Wednesday, but he went to bed that night without one, and he's been going down for naps and bed just as easily as he did with one (I really hope I'm not jinxing us now!).

He's only looked for a paci once before nap time, and I just told him they were all gone, although he did look into the trash can earlier today like he was looking for something. :(

On a cuter and happier note, this kid loves to eat!

He even helps us cook, but I think it's just so he can sample.

Good thing that's meatless meatloaf :-)


And even though he terrorizes things sometimes...

he's usually good about helping clean up.

He's such a smart boy, and I love watching him learn new things and how things work.

It's kind of hard to tell, but in that last picture he stole his brother's iPod and Rubix Cube and ran into the other room (to hide and play with them).

Sometimes, his curiosity gets him into trouble, though.

He still loves being outside more than anything.

And his hair has grown in so much, he's needed TWO haircuts!

(I'm still so confused by this, since his mom and I both have lots of thick hair, although I was bald until I was one just like him...)


He did so well both times!

Let's see... what else?

He went to his first wedding and of course he wore a bow tie.

And he helped us carve pumpkins for Halloween, although he tried to eat the "guts."

In his defense, there was a big spoon in it.

We haven't been running as much as I'd like, but he still enjoys it.

I squatted down to get a picture from a different angle, so of course he had to do it too.
His big thing lately has been cars, especially big trucks and buses and things like that. If he's upset, all we have to do is look up YouTube videos of excavators and that fixes any problem.

So basically, he's been a very busy boy.

I really have no idea how we got so lucky. He has such a great personality and is all smiles pretty much all the time.

I don't think there's anything cuter than when he's embarrassed and trying not to smile...

I really hate thinking about how big he's getting, but I love it at the same time. It seems like he just gets more and more fun the older he gets, and I know it's only going to get better.

He's going to make such a good big brother. :)
