"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

20 months

It really is so hard to believe that our baby boy is getting so close to turning 2 years old! Tanner is very active, snuggly, and funny! He loves to copy everything Carson does. When Carson bumps his knee on the couch and begins to say "Ouch!" Tanner immediately grabs his knee and starts saying, "Ow, ow, ow!" Tanner is very compassionate. When Matt, Carson, or I cough or sneeze, Tanner asks, "You ok, Daddy?" "You ok, Mommy?" Tanner loves to play at the park. He loves to swing on the big boy swings like Carson. He is also quite the climber! He climbs on everything, including the furniture, tables, and chairs.This week he found that he loves climbing the ladders on the playground and was quite proud of himself (as was Mommy too!). Tanner talks very well, puts several words together, and recognizes when things are hot or cold. He is still a very good eater and surprises me all the time with things he eats! Tanner has started his own nightly ritual with Matt when Matt gets home from work. As soon as Matt walks in the door and tells Tanner hi, Tanner says, "Night night Daddy" and takes Matt's hand and leads him into our bedroom. Gotta get some snuggling in with Daddy after work! Our little TT is growing out of being a baby and into the toddler stage too quickly! But we are so thankful that he is healthy and learning new things everyday!
