18 months

Noah loves condiments. Ranch, ketchup, sour cream, etc. He is a pretty adorable dipper. Here he is dipping cucumbers (no he didn't eat them) in ranch.

He is growing so fast. He started walking independently at 16 months (he likes to take his time) :), he can say many words including Mama, Dada, Tessa, Ashy (Ashton), down, done, more, no, bottle and milk which are both bop. There are many other words that I think he said but am not entirely sure. 
Noah has started folding his hands for prayer. It is adorable. Now everytime he gets in his high chair (and sometimes other times too) he folds his arms automatically. He is a good example. We end up praying many many more times a day because of this sweet boy.
Today Noah turned 18 months. I can hardly believe that much time has gone by. We have really been blessed. He is such a joy. Sure he is quite the toddler. He can throw a fit with the best of them but he really is a sweet little boy. He loves animals and babies. He never wants to stop kissing on his 2 months old cousin Issac. Unless of course Issac starts crying and then Noah wants to hit him.
We went to his 18 month doctor appointment on Tuesday and Noah is 35 inches and 28 pounds (although when I weighed myself today and then weighed myself holding him it was only 26 pounds so I am not sure on that one). He got 2 of his shots and we go back in a few weeks to get the other 2.
Noah is a really good helper. He likes to clean up messes (in fact he likes to spill some water on his tray so he can clean it up) and he loves to help me unload the dishwasher and hand me clothes from the laundry basket (folded or not folded).
It's been a good 18 months!
