Daddy Cam

Tayt took some good pictures of Austin this week playing in the backyard, his favorite place! I just love him and I'll definitely be printing some of these!  Thanks babe!  He also took a few videos that sum up his personality at 16 months.  I'll post those soon too.

I'm obsessed with his cute blonde curls!  :)  :)

By the way, I've missed blogging and hope to post more this summer when I have time!

New Look

 Thought the blog could use a facelift! I like the simplicity of this page and the format!

We've been busy...

We've been busy lately...busy living life!  Things are great at the Todd House!  Tayt just finished his first semester of nursing school!  (Good work babe!)  I have three weeks of school left before summer and I'm so looking forward to it.  Austin's last week with his sitter was this week.  She is going back to teaching/coaching in the fall so we will be on the hunt this summer for a new perfect place for our little toddler!

Last month Austin had his 15 month check up at the doctor and here are his stats...

Weight: 21 lbs and 13 oz (35%)
Height 31 in. (41%)
Head: 18 in. (20%)
Physical Exam: A+, Normal
Development: Excellent!!, Very Social and Active!
Austin's words: ball, mama, dada, tantan, juice, water, book, night night, bye bye, snack, dog, duck, bear, row row, banana, bird, no no, oh no....I'm sure there are a few I'm forgetting but he definitely impressed the doctor with the number of words he already had!  Makes me proud!
*Allergic to penicillin.  We found out the hard way.  After being on amoxicillin for almost a week he had fever for two days and then broke out in a severe case of hives for three full days.  Steroids and Benadryl did the trick but it was pretty scarey.  We now know that is something he will never have again.

Our TODDLER, who will be16 months old in just a few days, is into a lot right now!!  He loves to play outside, play with balls, hit the golf ball with his plastic clubs, color, be around people, chase Tanner, read books, dig in the dirt, eat by himself, drink juice/water, dance to music, take a bath, slide down his slide, climb on the couch, snuggle with us after nap, during snack time or before bed.  Our sweet boy loves his mommy and daddy and his stuffed dog Rowdy (Row Row).  He talks all the time...some words we know and others we haven't figured out yet.  He constantly has skinned up knees and bumps and bruises.  He is constantly on the move and laughs and smiles all the time.  But he does have a temper and has been known to head butt and bite on occasion.  He is ALL BOY!  He is still an amazing sleeper!  He takes one nap a day usually in the afternoon now.  He goes to bed between 7 and 8 and wakes up between 7 and 8 (earlier if I was taking him to the sitter or later if we kept him out at night).  He is active and social and the cutest blonde haired blue eyed boy we have ever laid eyes on!  He is our life!

**I'll admit that I don't pick up my camera as much anymore.  Mostly because he is too fast and alwasy moving so I don't have time.  But I do have a lot of cute pictures on my phone that I need to download some day! ;)
