Half Birthday! (Week 11/52)

Happy half birthday to our little buddy!

To follow in the footsteps of my awesome sister Amy, who makes a cake for all the half birthdays in their family, we celebrated Colin's big day in style.

At 18-months Colin...

still loves grapes
loves to dig in the dirt
always wants to go to the playground by our house
can go down all the big slides by himself
thinks it's hilarious to walk backwards
loves going to nursery at church!
knows which keys go into which car ignitions and how to get them in there
is a great helper
eats cheese like there's no tomorrow
would watch Curious George all day long if I let him
climbs into his stroller several times a day and demands to go on a walk
is becoming a pretty picky eater, but loves anything sugary
will put on my shoes and try to walk around the house
loves to wrestle and climb all over me
has a great sense of humor and thinks everything is a game

Obviously, I could go on and on.

I can't believe he is a year and a half old already! In honor of our little "cookie monster" I made a giant cookie--this kid loves cookies!

This giant cookie won't be winning any awards as far as the decorating job goes, but it served its purpose. Yum!

Way to celebrate! That part about him and the car keys sounds kind of scary. Yikes!

P.S. We need to web cam sometime.

What a good idea! Especially when you get to celebrate going to nursery at 18 months! And like Kim, we need to FaceTime.

When did he turn into a little boy? Your baby has disappeared! :)

So cute. You've inspired Kyle and I start a 1/2 birthday tradition.
