This time last year we were taking these photos in preparation for Oliver's first birthday party invite - he has grown so much in just one short year but one thing hasn't changed: that gorgeous smile! This month, Mr Oliver...

... has been very clingy to Mumma. The extra cuddles have been nice though, and he's been super affectionate - when I was having a particularly rough day, he came up to me (I was laying on the couch) and said "little sleep mum, rest" and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

... is starting to get into imaginative play - during bathtime, he likes to put a plastic koala on a tupperware container, tell us it's a potty then read the koala a bath book - just like what we do when he's on the potty! He then made sure the bath water was flushed down the toilet.

... isn't very good at sharing. I know it's just an age thing and I just have to keep teaching him, but it gets kinda frustrating when he thinks that the entire playground structure is his and tries to hit any other kid that even looks like they might touch it. He's also not been too good with kids smaller then him - very pushy. It's all a learning curve.

... is loving his 'special bed'! We've been having a little more success since moving everything out of his room - he's napping and sleeping in there overnight no worries now, phew!

... has taken to referring to himself in the third person. As 'Walley'?!?!

... is talking in sentences. Short ones, but he's putting words together and speaks quite clearly - he's pretty quiet in public, but once you get him one on one, he doesn't stop talking. I have to admit, I'm pretty darn proud of all his words!

... loves to say 'pardon me'. Mitch has been teaching him that whenever he burps or passes gas, he needs to say it - and now he loves saying it so much that he strains til a noise comes out and happily shouts out PARN ME! He also likes to just say BURP! PARN ME!

... wakes up some days with the most amazing head of fuzz, and other days with the most perfect ringlet perched atop his head... Love my little blondie!

Happy 22 months big boy!


  1. hahaha I had a good laugh at him referring to himself as walley! That is hilarious!

  2. how precious. they grow up so fast! i know the phrase is trite, but soooo appropriate.

  3. Oh my goodness, he is adorable. I just love this age. They wake up doing new stuff every day. So fun and amazing to witness. Enjoy!
