17 month Talin baby-----eeeerrrrr Talin toddie???

Yep, not so much a baby any more, though in comparison with Mr. Forrest, he is still very much the baby of the family. I suppose this is how it is with Child #2. He is getting more opinionated, more mobile, (i.e. lets climb EVERYTHING!!!), is currently on a sleep strike, and has become the early bird once more, loving the 515-615 am wake up time no matter what day it is. 430 even happened once. Sheesh, he would make a mighty find rower wouldn't he??

He is transitioning from the two naps a day to one nap, which makes for some grouchy nights as he struggles with the whole sleep deal. He is also a very light sleeper currently, waking up several times a night, due to mucho molars coming in, or who knows what. I can say that I am currently pretty exhausted with it all, and hope this come to an end soon! A little benadryl (under his dose per weight but enough to get him a bit sleepy)/Tylenol cocktail before bed seems to help a bit at least with the first half of the night. Yep, we do indeed drug him up. I figure some solid sleep, at least once in awhile, gives us ALL a healthier and happier mind and body!

T baby has also become quite the jabber monkey. He'll hold conversations with you in his Talin talk and it is pretty funny. His words include "dye dye" for Bye Bye, "ewooo" for Hello, and of course his beloved "nana" for Banana. He continues to love to sign all done, bye bye, more, and now milk has become a new one once in awhile. He makes us laugh all the time and is quite the little busy body with his physical abilities and jabbering. He still loves walks, often showing us the baby carrier as his way to ask us to take him on a walk. He loves to walk himself too now, and can do so quite easily. He is still one of the favorites at his daycare and more often than not has great days. "We miss Talin!" I hear a lot when he has days off!
Brother relations have been better. Mr. Forrest does SO well now one on one. He is almost like a new kid, conversant, super smart, very easy going, and talking better daily. When with his brother though this leaves him most of the time and they BOTH have been hitting, swatting, and kicking each other. Ugggh. It starts already! They do have awesome moments though where both will play great together, and even if it does involve ear piercing, (though happy) screams, and their crazy tag games running around the dining room table we usually let it go on, as it is just so nice to see both of them enjoying eachother!

The big 1 1/2 years old is just around the corner! At this point with Forrest I was already pregnant with little T baby! Crazy!!!
