Blake is 18 months

Blake is 18 months today! We spent the day at home in our pj's. I realized at dinner that I hadn't taken any pictures of Blake so I snapped a few while he was eating dinner. James has a new camera that he LOVES and also took some pictures. Blake you are such an easy, happy baby. Here is what you are up to:
-You always want to be with James. You love playing, wrestling and doing everything together. You love James very much!
-You love being together as a family. When one of us steps away you usually cry.
-You are starting to repeat a lot of words in the last 2 weeks. You can say Mama, Dada, sock, cracker, doctor, ball, drink, puppy. I know your vocabulary is going to take off fast from here on out. You are trying really hard to communicate.
-You are still sucking your thumb and playing with your hair.
-You follow simple commands. If we ask you to get in your chair to eat you can climb up all by yourself. You also like to take your cup to the sink when you are finished.
-You can go up and down the stairs by yourself.
- You are starting to throw mini tantrums when things don't go your way.
-You take 1 afternoon nap at school, but on the days we are home you take a good morning nap and an afternoon nap.
-You are a good eater and usually eat as much or more than James.
- You wear 18-24 months clothes and size 4 diapers when we are out. You are still wearing cloth at home.
-You go to school 3 days a week. The teachers say you have such a sweet personality.
-You go to bed at 7pm and usually sleep until atleast 6:30 am.
-You usually don't like to be rocked unless you are really tired. Usually we have to hold you on your side and cradle you to get you to cuddle.
-Some of your nicknames are Blakey-poo(James' favorite), baby Blake, Blakester, baby.
We love you Blake!
