Andy at 16 months

Taken April 27.



Andy's current favorite activities: unrolling toilet paper, splashing in the bathtub, trying to get outside as often as possible, and climbing up on the kitchen table to get at whatever interesting project Kate has left out. We have to make sure to keep the chairs pushed in so he can't get up there.



He still isn't saying anything, but he lets us know how much he understands. The other day he got ahold of my keys, took them over to the front door, and touched the keys to the doorknob.



Interesting things going on outside! While we were taking pictures it started hailing.



We've been doing "Where's Andy's nose?" "Where's Daddy's nose?" Sometimes he doesn't quite get on his nose. We still think it's awfully cute.

Aww, he continues to be such a darling child! I'm impressed with the keys/doorknob sequence!

Ah, the keeping the child alive phase as they have no concept of danger and just want to explore, explore, explore! Good thing you have a bigger Sister who can help chase after him :)

He is way too cute! Love the pictures!

He's adorable Helena!
Maiah's the same way - the communication level is awesome, just no words yet.

My youngest didn't talk much until he was 18-24 months. He really didn't have a need to :) I love, love, love these photos of this sweet, adorable boy!

If you turn the toilet paper so it comes off the other way (from the bottom) it's harder for kids and/or pets to unroll.

What a cutie!

Love the pictures. Also liked Barb's suggestion about the toilet paper roll!

He is growing so quickly! What an absolute doll!

He's growing into such a cutie! Jayden just turned 3, and he's still not doing much talking. Part of me worries, but the other part thinks that it could be a result of the older siblings doing all the talking and that he will talk when he is ready. Still, it's hard to take him to the doctor appointments and church and stuff and have everyone analyze why he isn't talking. He does show understanding, too- just like your son. They're pretty smart kiddos!
