ben at 17 months.

is so much fun!
let's see if i can come up with a list....

- still doesn't walk. ;-(
- is talking more and more. a few of the most used: up, thank you, please, cheese, momma, dadda, kitty, ball, chip, book, this/that. {i'm drawing a blank. there is more i'm sure...}
- knows that a kitty says meow, a cow says moo, a monkey says what ...{how the heck do you type that?} and a lion says roar.
- we are working on where his ears, mouth, and eyes are. kinda knows his nose and feet. well, he eats his feet when you ask.
- has graduated to the toddler room at daycare. {he's the youngest and the only non walker}
- knows how to shake his bootay and prefers classic rock over pop!
- takes a 2 to 2 1/2 hour nap at daycare, then one at home in the evening for about an hour. sometimes he is good for a mid morning one too. 
- loves wipeout and wheel of fortune.
- can pet the kitty nicely. ;-)
- cannot get enough outside time {walks, slides, anything}
- will roll like a madman all over the family room and now crawls in reverse.
- loves bedtime stories. his two favorites: goodnight moon and i love you through and through.
- and for his 17 month present. a pony ride at the zoo today! ;-) {more on that later!}
