You are now 19 months old and you are one fun kid. You have had quite an eventful month! You took your first trip to New York City! I was there working and you came with daddy to visit for 5 days. We had so much fun showing you one of our favorite places in the world. You did great on the plane, and did great sleeping in the hotel.
We were so glad to get home and back to normal life. In fact, our first week home was Halloween week so there were a lot of festivities. You dressed as a pirate and dog and had lots of fun. You haven't quite figured out candy, but one kind you do love are lolly pops. I had to hide them.
You are talking like crazy, and I'm afraid my once silent car rides will never again be that way. You are constantly saying something. Your current favorites are "I did it!", "car", "Go, go, go!", "bike", "eat", "wa-wa" (water), and the list goes on and on.
You prefer to say "No" to almost everything, even when it is something you want. You don't just say a simple "no" though, it is a "NO" like I'm forcing you to eat the worst thing in the world. You even cover your face and turn away. I'm not sure why.
The Rangers were in the World Series. You got to watch them on tv, and hence you learned a lot about baseball. You now pick up balls and as you throw them say "baseball!" You also know what football is when you see that on tv as well.
You know the animal sounds for more animals than I can name. I think animals are your favorite things right now which I think is fun. You've started learning some shapes and colors, and I've started getting play dough out sometimes, but I've yet to convince you that it is fun. You also like to color sometimes. Your favorite things to draw are "Circles". At least that is what you say they are. It could still be too early to call it, but I think you are going to be left handed like both daddy and I! How fun would that be?
Egan, you are growing and changing daily and are such a blast to play with, teach, and talk to! You make me laugh, think, and even stress at times, but I wouldn't change a thing. Daddy and I love you more than I will ever be able to adequately express in words.
Here are some pictures of Egan coloring the other day.
