my little helper

Taylor is 15 months and running all over the place.  He's still kind of stumbly though, and has hit his head way too many times this week, giving his forehead quite the array of goose eggs.  Poor guy, he's just trying to keep up with his big brother!  At his check-up on Monday he weighed in at a whopping 19 pounds.  Yep, that's the 1st percentile.  He out eats Chase on a daily basis, but clearly that's not keeping him from dropping off the charts!  He does great sleeping through the night, but can't really make up his mind about naptime lately.  Like I said, he loves to eat and isn't really picky either.  His biggest fault is probably how he holds his breath and passes out when he's upset about something.  Scary to watch! It could be from a bonk, or because mommy left the room, or even because the ice cream is all gone (MAJOR sweet tooth on this kid).  He is definitely a stubborn, determined child, and I guess at this age there are only so many ways to express that and maintain some level of control!  He's generally a really happy boy though, and loves to play peekaboo, color (especially with sidewalk chalk), pretend to cook, completely tear apart every drawer in the kitchen, run around outside, swing, climb everything in sight, dig in the dirt, and follow his brother around.  He also likes to be cuddled by mommy.:)  Yesterday he was helping us water the roses, which basically means he ended up in the middle of a huge mud puddle.  That landed him in the bath tub, which is definitely one of his favorite places, so he didn't mind being pulled out too much.  I've been off work most of the last two weeks because Brett had surgery and couldn't lift Taylor, so we've had a lot of quality time together going to the park, etc.  I've really enjoyed it, and wish that was my life everyday!  These boys are growing up so fast, and they're just so much fun.  They definitely drove me crazy multiple times each day, but nothing beats their sweet smiles and hugs from those little arms...nothing.

Holding his breath to pass out?! That would give me a heart attack!

I can't believe he holds his breath until he passes out--SCARY!!! I thought Heidi crying until she threw up was the pits. What a little doll he is.
