Joshua at 17 months

I can't believe my baby is 17 months old. He does so many cute, fun things now and copies what we do more and more each day. Here are some are my favorite things that he does:

*Sits on the lap of his teddy bear and reads a book.

*Gives mom and dad hugs when they hold their arms out to him. He started this all of a sudden. He used to just run away when someone held their arms out to him. He only runs away three fourths of the time now :)

*Climbs up stairs holding onto the banister. He is very proud of himself for learning to do this.

*Walks around pretending to talk on the phone and will often hold it up to my face so I can talk too.

*I taught him to put his head on my shoulder when I ask him too. I tricked him into thinking it was a fun game but really it is so I can snuggle with him.

*Puts his head down on a pillow when he finds one and pretends to sleep.

*Puts oven mitts on his hands and walks around.

*Blows his nose and fake coughs whenever he hears or sees someone else do this.

*Folds his arms and bows his head for prayers. He picked up the head bowing on his own. I didn't even realize I did it. He's still working on closing his eyes for more one one second.

*Walks with his hands behind his back all the time. He will either have them folded or flying in the air behind him.

*Has a tantrum when he doesn't get his way (not always so fun for me).

*Tries to put on any shoes he sees.

*Walks around the house reading a book. He is absolutely obsessed with any and every book right now.

*Breathes hehe, haha like someone in labor.

*Sucked on (rather than chewed or threw) a pacifier for the first time since he was a couple months old. I'm not really looking to start a new habit, but it's cute to see him do sometimes.

I loved reading through Joshua's recent milestones - I remember when Emily went through most of those! I absolutely love this age.

He's so cute and growing up! I like that he folds his arms and bows his head for prayers. You must be good parents!
