20 Months Old!

Tate is 20 months old today! I have really made an effort to post on the 6th of each month with an update of what Tate is up to (more for my own records). We are all sick in our house right now, but I wanted to make sure I did this post.

Anyone who has spent more than one second with Tate recently knows that he is one wild and crazy guy! He is so busy and curious; he cracks us up. He is talking like crazy and amazes me everyday with all that he knows. He has a little DVD he likes (Hip Hop Baby- thanks mom) and they have a counting song. I started singing it one day (because I hear it 50 times a day) and Tate started saying the next number. He loves to try and hold up his fingers and say his numbers. It cracks me up, especially when he says seven because he says "seben!". Tate loves attention (anyone surprised?). He loves putting on shows and is so used to being praised that he sometimes says "Yeah!" after he does something in anticipation. Nathan asked him the other day what something was and Tate replied, "Golfball, Yeah!" and started dancing. This kid is so crazy.
He still loves playing with balls, especially basketballs, footballs and golfballs. One of my favorite things he does is says "Touchdown" when you hold your hands up. That is usually followed by him saying, "Football, Cowboys." He can identify the Cowboys logo anywhere (Nathan is so proud). He does something knew everyday and I love watching him learn and grow!!!

I totally remember having our b-days around each other and probably sharing a b-day lunch! Mine is on the 14th and if I remember you are on the 12th, which is only 4 days away! I'm so sure your hubby will spoil you. I love all the pictures, especially the one of Nathan's white arms, don't ya love the farmers tan line? :)
Tate is so big and so darn cute!!!!

What a smart boy! I love that he has a hip-hop baby DVD. That is hilarious! I'm sorry you're all sick, but hopefully you were still able to do something fun for your big day.
