17 months

I can't believe how fast time is going. I know I say this all the time. I swear this year is just flying by. I don't know if it seems that way because we have Konnor now and he's so busy and growing so much each day or if I'm just crazy :). At 17 months Konnor is already trying to be more independent. He wants to be down walking all the time and he wants to go in whatever direction he wants which is not usually where we want him to go!  He likes going to the park but not because he likes to swing or slide. He actually pretty much avoids the  playground part of the parks and he heads right to running around the paths or grass or trying to run straight into any water that might be in the area. 
He is still talking up a storm. Some new words he now says are blankie, bath, ("bash")  uncle, aunt ("ent"), oh stop, block, and he's gotten good at saying "neigh" when we ask what a horse says. The neighbors have balloons tied to their mailbox and when we go out the door we always hear "bawoon" "bawoon". 
Sleeping of course as usual is still an issue. His canine teeth have still not come through but he has been chewing and drooling like crazy the past couple days. Some nights he wakes up and quickly goes back to sleep and other nights he is up for hours. 
He's started climbing on everything. It's not unusual to turn away for a second and find him sitting on the fireplace looking at you with his "what are you going to do now" look :). He's a pro at going up stairs and we are working on showing him how to go back down on his belly. He's getting pretty good at it. 
We spent most of this past weekend outside because the weather was so nice!  Konnor loved being outside. He didn't love when we wouldn't let him go in the creek behind the house. I think he let the whole neighborhood know he was unhappy!

We can't wait to see what this next month will bring!
