18 months

Today marks 18 months since our little baby came into the world. While 18 months isn't enough time to forget the painful memories of the birthing process and the 9 months prior, he certainly has proven more than worth all the work it took to get him here. Some of Stockton's fave activities as of late are:
talking on the phone and sitting on any chair he happens upon, as illustrated

He also loves smoothies:

and popsicles

Reading books

Being outside in nature

Playing in water

He also loves going up and down the stairs, in and out of doors or back and forth over any uneven surface. He loves rocks and lately he's also into cars, airplanes, trucks, fire trucks etc (already such a boy). He's a semi picky eater preferring fruit snacks, crackers or Parmesan crusted chicken from Noodles and CO. He also likes the most random food like olives and pickles.
He seems to be too busy to walk anymore and runs everywhere, he jabbers all day long and while we don't understand 70 % of it he does actually say a lot of words..and animal sounds.. and understands even more! He is always surprising Tim and I with what he knows and picks up on. He wears me out with all his energy and pulls me around all day. He likes it when we sing to him or put music on and he dances around.. my fave dance move of his is the stoop down and shuffle. He likes a lot of attention like his dad ;) He likes to go places and says hi multiple times to people we see. He has a lot of nicknames including but not limited to: Stocky, Stockerton, Stocktonian, Goons, Goony Goony Gustafeson, Gooners, Goony Goony Guster, Goofy Gus,, Bubba, baby, baby boy, Kooky Kookers, little boy, stinker etc and OCCASIONALLY Stockton:). He'll snuggle after naps or in the morning. Three of my favorite things are his laugh, his hugs and his kisses. We love him so much and can't believe he's already a year and a half!

We went on a cruise I'm far too behind on blogging to document it with too many words.. so here are some pics! We had a blast and somehow I survived being away from my beloved child.

hanging out at the port of the air variety.
The first of many cheesburgers.. 1st day at sea
aren't they adorable?

Grand Cayman. Where we almost died. Just asked Mrs. Kellee Messmer

Going out to see the sting ray

Stingray city! We pet them and kissed them and they massaged our backs! Too bad we don't have pics.. Kell's face was priceless:)

Roatan, Honduras

Fulfilling a lifelong dream of swimming with dolphins in Cozumel. That isn't me.. but I did it! And I didn't buy their overpriced pics so there! haha

The Mister loved the little flower shaped butter at dinner:)

The staircase on the Crown Princess

The Glamorous life of..... a mom


This is the first of two poops in the tub in the last month or so. On this particular occasion my dear husband was bathing our child before church and I still had to clean up the poop because apparently men don't have the stomach for such things.. WIMPS I tell ya.
This event occurred when my child barfed all over himself, me and the carpet( of the house we are taking care of) and splashed it up onto the walls. AWESOME. I just stood there not knowing what to do next.. I mean the kid used to spit up but NEVER have we had something of such epic proportions. Apparently I fed him too much. I mean honestly he didn't act sick but he had just eaten a ton! ah. Lovely. Has anyone ever thought about contacting Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) about motherhood? This job aint for wimps!
