I love this age

I've been thinking a lot lately about what stage I like the most. I love love love the uber newborn (ie first 2 weeks), I have difficulty with some of the 7-9 months (wanting to crawl, not figuring it out, lots of frustration, teething), but I am LOVING this 16 month age. There is just SO much personality! I love how much of a copy cat Colin is, how independent he is, how he makes me laugh out loud (and does it on purpose). It makes me melt when he runs into my arms or waves bye-bye.

I remember that this was how old DD was when we started trying for Colin (although it took 9 months of trying)...and I remember why that "I want more" bug hit me.

Anyways, just thought I'd share.

ummm so are you saying you have the bug and will be the next preggoo??? HEHE!

But I agree. Although every age I say is my favorite. Tommy totally knows when he is being down right silly and is egged on my seeing us laugh.He does this foot shuffle thing, we call it fancy feet. its hilarious.
And I have the baby bug too. trying to reel it in though

No bug yet...although seeing newbies tugs on my heart strings. If we do have a third we'll wait until Colin is either 3 or 4. I'm thinking maybe 4 so that he's in JK and I can be home with him for that year....but we'll see.

I'm loving it too! Alice is FINALLY!!! starting to walk a little. Just took her first unassisted steps 2 days ago! And she is babbling/trying to say things and pointing at everything! And she just giggles and makes me laugh! And hot damn, I am now a high chair free house! I know, not that exciting, but when your house is small and you can start to get rid of honking big baby paraphernalia, yippee!!! (she eats at a little IKEA table with her brother. We eat in our living room most of the year because our dining room is SOOOO FREAKING COLD!! and don't have a dining table in there. She's got a booster seat at the table.)

I love this age too!! Cam has such a personality right now and he's starting to say words to tell us what he wants. I think the cuteness of this age is making my baby fever rage, but we've got a while yet before we give it another go.
