At 18 months old Jonah....

Repeats everything you say!
Always has to have one or both feet sticking out from under the covers when he sleeps (just like his mom!)
Loves to be chased around the house
Has started asking "what's that?" but usually just says "that?"
Is starting to say phrases like "bye bye dog" or "hi mommy, hi daddy" and still constantly says "no no Riley"
Loves to feed you his food! Especially the cereal out of his cereal bowl when it's nice and soggy!
Has almost all of his teeth
Is starting to answer questions with a simple "yes or no" or he shakes his head and says "yes, yes, yes" or "no, no, no"
Will run up to you and give you a hug and put his head on your shoulder! My heart melts everytime!
Loves to sing and dance to "If you're happy and you know it.."
Tries really hard to blow bubbles and it's so cute to watch his facial expression
Has learned how to work the DVD player
Can point to his body parts and say some of them(head, nose, belly button, eyes, ears, hands, legs and toes)
Loves picking a book off the shelf at bedtime and trying to read to Mommy and Daddy.

He's changing so much on a daily basis and I can't believe the time has flown by so fast! He'll be 2 years old before we know it!

It's amazing how much our life has changed since we became parents. There have been a lot of tears and a lot of laughter. We spend each day trying to teach him about the world and in return he's teaching us a lot about ourselves and how to live life to the fullest! Before you have a baby everyone tries to tell you about how much love you will have for this tiny little person but you never get it until they fall down for the first time and those little tears start flowing, or they say hi to someone in the mall and that person doesn't say hi back and you see the disappointment on their little face, or when they are just about to fall asleep and they put their head on your chest and pat your face with that tiny little hand! That's when you finally get it!

Then they go and pull all the toilet paper off the roll, pull all the pots and pans out of the cabinet, scream for more juice, lock you in the garage, turn the Baby Einstein DVD off and run up to you with the remote control going "uh oh" and then pee on the floor while you are changing their diaper and the bliss slowly wears off and a thought quickly flashes through your mind "What have we done??"

I'm just kidding of course! We can't imagine our life without Jonah now! He's a our greatest accomplishment and we are looking forward to many more family memories!

Monda. What you say about your family always touches me and sometimes I even get a little misty-eyed. (Like I did just now.) You're good with the mommy words, that's for sure. I love to read your blog. I think I live vicariously through your stories.
