One Day Late...Happy Year and a Half Shane

Yesterday Shane was a year and a half old. He is such a joy at this age. He makes Phil and I laugh all the time. He really is the "Light of Our Lives". He says over 40 words now and even says small sentences.   One of my favorite words he says is balloon. He says it "bee-youin" so darn cute. He is also adorable right before nap and bed. We tuck him in and he giggles, then waves and says bye-bye and then blows a kiss.  We just love him so much. There isn't anything Phil or I wouldn't do for him.  I really wish he could stay this age for a long time but I know he is growing up so fast and am trying to savor every moment with him.

Daddy and I love you so much. We are so proud of how far you have come in the past year and a half. Words can't express the love we have for you. We will never be able to come up with the right words to express the feeling of how much you mean to us. You are a blessing. We know it hasn't been easy for you having Gerd and waiting so long for the help, medications and the diet you needed/need so that your not suffering.  It kills us to know we can't take your pain away 100 percent but despite it all you have turned into a smart, strong, independent toddler that we are so Proud of.

The cutest picture to date!

Happy 18 months Shane!

A Big Boy Bed and a Molar

I am excited to report that for 1 week Shane has been sleeping in a Big Boy Bed! 
Last weekend we decided he was ready to try a Toddler Bed...We were right. Shane has done great. He fell out once the first night at 4 am. By the time we got to his room to check on him he had already crawled back into bed.  So Smart and growing up so fast!

Oh and his bed is adorable. We painted it red to match a cowboy theme room we plan to give him in our new house in Arizona.

Another exciting announcement Shane is getting his first molar. The only thing he has been behind on is his teeth. They have all come in so far after the Norm.  Well Yesterday he was fussy and warm so I checked his mouth and on his left side bottom gum is a big hard bump. I expect a molar any day now.  If you can't tell I am excited because I know this will help him chew better and allow him more variety of foods. Shane is not so thrilled but who can blame him. 

Check back as I plan to post pictures this weekend.

So I finished the storyboard I have been working on from the apple orchard. Here are my favorite shots of Shane in a storyboard. Click on it to see it bigger :)

I also wanted to add a bonus. This is Shane's "I don't want to go to bed" face I caught on camera the other night. He's so cute even when he's upset!
