Happy 18 Months Harrison!

OMG- I seriously LOVE this child -(right? he's mine) - but I just want to eat him up he is soooo freaking cute!!!!!!!!  He was definitely a very very needy baby and still is - but now that he has entered toddlerdom - he's just wayyyy too fun when he not being clingy and whiny.  The best part is that he is my MINI - I hope that changes when he is older (but Tom Cruise made it, right?) - but having Addie be such a big baby so early made this little guy so enjoyable because he still fits into the perfect snuggle in your arms.  He's only 10th percentile for his height - so he is STILL wearing 12 month pants!!!!  He is the PERFECT little boy that I always envisioned.  He is just the right amount of bruiser and still loves wearing bracelets and tiaras with his sister.  He just adores Addie and the budding relationship between them just melts my heart.  He gives her hugs and kisses all the time!  I just love EVERYTHING about him and I don't know how to write everything down that I am feeling - he is just my heart and I am so happy to have him in my life.  Here are some of the things that I want to look back and remember...
 1.  His big colic and long hair
2.  His crooked smile that melts your heart
3.  His perfect full lips that turn up at the corners
4.  His gorgeous blue eyes and the longest eyelashes I have ever seen!
5.  His "roar" for pretending he is an animal, monster, or dinosaur - with his fists clenched and a serious, angry look on his face - he also does this when he is mad at you :)
6.  His "Arrrrr" for a pirate - usually with a play sword or gun in hand
7.  The way he sweetly says "Mommy" or "Mama"
8.  The way he walks/runs with one arm swinging and his shoulders up and belly out

9.  His Napoleonic complex at the playround

10. The way he zips around the house on his wheely bug
11.  The way he pretends he is a dog and drinks off the floor or Blue's dog bowl
12.  His trilling of the tongue for car noises
13.  Your absolute silliness and trying to make us laugh (i.e. putting everything on your head)
14.  Your weird way of drinking from sippy cups

I cannot wait to see this little one grow up. He is the quintessential little boy to me and I am so happy he is in our lives :)
