17 Month Update

On Wednesday of last week Cruz turned 17 months.  We traveled back to Guatemala that day and have been busy, busy since.  I am just now getting his pictures posted.  I normally take notes throughout the month of things he does but did not do that while we were in the States.  He continues to change so fast and there is never a dull moment with him around.
*   He weighs 24 pounds
*   He wears size 4 diapers, size 5 shoe, size 12 and 18-24 month clothes
*   He cut four new teeth this month, two on the top and two on the bottom, all at the same time
*   He made his third trip to the States to visit family
*   He got his first stitches- 9 in his forehead
*   He got his first black eye
*   He got his first haircut (and cried the whole time)
*   This month he helped us announce that he is going to be a big brother.  We are all excited about that.

*   While in the States he enjoyed playing outside, riding in a Little Tykes car, going to the park, feeding the ducks, watching the cows in the late afternoon, watching t.v. (his favorite show was America's Funniest Home Videos), and taking bubble baths.
*   His vocabulary is growing everyday.  He learned several new words while in the States.  His new favorite thing is saying "cheese" before you take his picture.
*   He is facinated by motorcycles and gets very excited when he sees one.  He makes a revving sound and motions his hands.
*   He loves to play in vehicles and his favorite toy is keys.  He will tote a set of keys around and try to stick them in any lock he can find.  He walks up to everyone and asks them for their keys.
*   He likes to look at pictures and will point out the people he knows.  He especially likes seeing pictures of his mama.

He is a busy little boy these days and there is not much going on around him that he misses.  He keeps us exhausted, but we wouldn't trade it for anything.  He blesses us everyday!  

Happy 17 month birthday, Cruz!
You are a fun child.
