Ezra 17 months


I better hurry up before and update Ezra at 17 months before he turns 18 months. Literally this week. I'm not really sure how that happened because it seems like last month it was his birthday. But, apparently the summer came and went. Ezra is talking up a storm these days. Sometimes we will hear a little voice speaking and think it's Emerson talking but, it's Ezra. Ha! His new words include plane, bug, bible, color, hot, water, popcorn, cracker, and cookie. Apparently he is motivated by food. There is nothing like your toddler barreling into the kitchen screaming popcorn. He has been trying new food like a champ and eating much more than I had expected. Recently he has tried fish and loved it! He has really enjoyed my Chicken Butternut Quinoa Stew last week. Something incredibly flavorful you would never expect a kid to appreciate and he did. He also is obsessed with spring rolls filled with cabbage. He is now much to my surprise saying please and thank you. He holds his finger up to his mouth and says, "shhh." Ezra loves to tickle and will hold out both hands and say, "tickle, tickle, tickle." I think it cracks him up more than anything but does love to tickle dogs and babies. He has a such a sweet and tender heart. He gives us so many kisses. When it's time to go to bed he wants to kiss everyone a couple times, then blow kisses on his exit. Even to the dog! He loves playing with his sister and doing whatever she does. He really thinks he is three too. When she has dance on Wednesdays he will push his face against and look so sad that she is having fun without him. He absolutely loves to play outside. Although I dread any kind of playground because of his dare devil tendencies. But, he loves to play ball and push cars around outside. Lately his favorite toys have been the little people farm, and play food and dishes. At the gym he really enjoys the train table. He has even started to show interest in puzzles. After starting to say Mama pretty frequently back in May he now calls me Daddy all the time. I'm not really sure what that's all about. But, needless to say I adore him anyways. He makes me laugh all the time and really is a sweet lovable boy. He answers questions with either an uh-huh, or nah-uh. It's funny to have a conversation with him and realize he knows what we are saying.  Now, if he would just stop climbing onto the furniture we would be golden. :)
