I'm a BIG BOY now!!

These pictures are the most recent. This was last night when Linken was helping daddy pack for his scout camp out. He wanted to try it on.... As you can see he now figured out to smile when mommy says CHEESE!!

This other picture shows his other top tooth!! He now has 4 Teeth! Well Linken is almost 18 months old now and is busy, busy, busy! He is getting so big and lately seems more like a little man to me than a little boy just by his big personality. He is trying to talk so much now and can say a lot of words: Oey= our dog Zoey, mom, dad, I want that, mine, car, ball, straw, bowl, cracker, papa, gama= grandma, eesa= my sister Jalisa, cat, goat, bottle, drink, bubble, water, bath, moomie- movie, bye-bye, thank you, nigh night, no, outside, flower, bug and more. He is trying to put together sentences which is hilarious. He also has started to do the signs he has learned from his Baby Signing Time movies. He can sign; more, play, eat, drink, bird, dog, friend, please, and stop. I'm amazed at how quick he is picking things up. The other day we were in the backyard playing and I yelled for Brady and then all of the sudden Linken goes to the door and starts yelling "Brady" it was pretty cute. He is trying to be so independent too... he loves climbing up on everthing by himself, he loves taking daddy's tools and trying to fix stuff and loves feeding himself. At the beginning of this month we also got him his own big boy bed and he has been sleeping in it pretty well (more like we) because he only sleeps 3-4 hours at a time so when he wakes up in the middle of the night I usually am so tired I stay and sleep with him. But I do must say he is getting better and better at sleeping by himself. Linken is such a blessing in my life and I love him him more and more each day and I'm so grateful to have him. He is growing up so fast but only seems to be getting more cute... Here's Linken with a screwdriver in hand helping daddy put together his new bed. As you can see in the picture above he is EXCITED!! This last picture makes me sad... as you can see he has a hurt foot. Well the other day I was warming up lunch ( his favorite leftover noodles) and they split coming out of the microwave and some cheese landed on his foot and burned him. He had two little blisters and thanks to all of his daddy's leftover burn wraps and ointments from his work accident back in 2007 we were able to wrap it up and get them healed in no time!! So packing around a bin of burn supplies for the last 3 years actually came in handy!!
