Andy at 19 months

July 27th was the day we flew back from Utah, so I got some pictures at Barb's house and some at the airport.

Andy doing "The Eensy-Weensy Spider" (a current favorite).

In the stroller at the airport.

"Is this your lens cap? Here, let me put that back on for you!"

Andy loves to draw, just like his big sister. Here's a masterpiece from that morning:

I don't know what it is but it's nicely varied and expressive. He recently graduated from only doing back-and-forth scribbles to also doing round-and-round scribbles. He goes for Kate's markers; we deflect him with colored pencils (slightly less hazardous). So far the walls have escaped unscathed, though our fridge is currently sporting some decoration.

He did very well on the plane, and he's feeling a lot better now. Yay!

He's trying to say more words, though they're not really clear. I've caught "ball" and "done." (Easy to figure out, in context!) And a couple of times he's said something that could be "Let's go!"

He's gotten really good at climbing up slides (and sliding down them). That's his favorite thing to do at a park.

He continues to be a really good eater and will often eat more at a meal than Kate does.

And, as always, he's a happy little guy and such fun to have around!

He just melts my heart! I love the focus on the spider, and those little bitty fingers... =)

Chopstick technique shows potential, but xylophoning skills need refining!

He melts my heart too. And, I really like his drawing. It's cool that he covered the paper so well,and with such variety.
