18 months...

My little bud turned 18 months on Feb. 28th. Naturally, I am just now getting around to documenting it.
I don't know about you, but I think 18 month Tucker is one handsome feller! (So when I first typed that out, I accidentally put feeler...little different than where I was trying to go with that sentence. Baha!)
The boy is still not talking much, but we have made HUGE leaps in his vocabulary recently. He is doing a ton better with repeating (or at least attempting to repeat) what we say, and is getting really good at singing along with songs.
A month or two ago Kerrigan was at preschool and Tucker was wandering around whining something. Me, being the observant mother I am, didn't realize for almost a 1/2hr that he was looking for his sissy. We have since realized that "Keeeeeeee Ggggeeeee" is how the kid says Kerrigan....holy melted heart!

Tuck may or may not have started nursery a few weeks earlier than he was supposed to. As in, I may or may not have shoved him through the door then ran. At first, he wasn't a huge fan. I don't know why my method would have caused any separation anxiety, right?
Now that he is a legit member of nursery, I stick around for a few minutes and he is doing better. He is basically their star "student", in fact. The other day I peeked in, and all the other kids where sitting nicely at the table and coloring- BAAAA-OOOOORING! Where was my little genius? Sitting ON the table EATING the crayons. That will teach those leaders to hold off on snack time. Advanced? You better believe it!
He has amazing hair. I don't know how to control it at all. Seriously way out of my league here ,folks, with this whole boy hair thing. It grows so stinkin' fast! And when it gets really bad I can't just put it in pigtails like I do with the girl.
Let's just hope I figure it out by the time he starts school, or I am gonna have some school picture day explaining to do later in life!
Tucker puts EVERYTHING in his mouth. No really- EVERYTHING!
Right now his favorite inedible happens to be dirt and grass. Although it is great for the firming up of his bowel movements (the kid hasn't blown out at all since its been warm enough for him to be outside regularly), the grainy consistency leaves something to be desired. I am still weighing the pros and cons.
Um, he just looks really big in this picture. That's all.And this picture is the perfect representation of 18 month Tucker. Messy, bruised head (above his eyebrow), probably sporting a dirty diaper...but happy as a flippin' clam!

Love him!

I swear its a second child thing. I fondly refer to Ryder as the bruiser or the beast.
