Charlie - 22 months old

Today our little man is already 22 months old!  I can't believe we'll be celebrating his 2nd birthday in just 2 short months!  The past month has been very busy and just flew by.  He amazes us more and more each day.  He can now count to 6, attempt to sing his ABC's, and he says new words and sentences daily.  We've visited Santa Clause twice in the past week and so far all he'll do is run up and give him five.  It's a start!  Maybe next year he'll be ready to sit in his lap.  We are trying to prepare him for the baby and he tells the baby "goodnight" every night and kisses my stomach.  I just hope he's this sweet once she's actually here.  He's still obsessed with his tractors and it looks like we'll be adding to his collection on Christmas morning (as if we don't have enough already!).  He loves to test our patience but he's getting better at listening to us.  I think he's finally figured out that there are consequences when he doesn't listen.  He's started playing hide & seek more and loves to hide his daddy in the other room and come running to me asking "where's daddy momma"?  It's so cute! 
He is at such a fun age!

This is the picture we used for our Christmas cards this year.
