The Monkey

Tyler's newest nickname is "The Monkey". The Monkey recently turned 19 months. He is into everything and has turned into a little climber. The climbing part really makes me nervous. For example, today I was downstairs unloading the dishwasher while Tyler played upstairs. It got really quiet upstairs, which also makes me nervous, so I went up to check on him. I heard him in Cooper's room so I go to see what he is up to. He was sitting ON TOP of the changing table in the nursery. He had managed to use the two shelves below to climb up onto the changing table. He was just sitting up there having a grand ol' time playing with the wipes! Are you kidding me? I just wish I had a picture of him up there. He tried climbing it again later this afternoon and got a stern warning that he wasn't to do that again and if he did he was going to get a spanking.

Anyway, at 19 months he imitates EVERYTHING we do. His new favorite thing is to fill up his juice cup with water from the refrigerator door. Luckily the water dispenser has a button to lock it where it won't dispense water because otherwise we would have water all over the floor at all times. He has learned to say "No" which we aren't too excited about. Oh well, it was bound to happen at some point. He has also started giving closed mouth kisses and makes the "Mwa" sound when he gives you a kiss. It's adorable and I like to ask him for kisses just to hear him do it, but now he can also say no to my request! :(

We love Tyler so much at this stage. Travis and I have been talking lately about how much fun he is and how much we love watching him at this age. He is learning so much and cracks us up on a daily basis!

Showing off his excellent fashion sense.

Taking a bath in our jacuzzi bathtub- his new favorite thing to do!

Can't wait to see "The Monkey" and "Little Larry." You're not going to believe how big Charlie has gotten too! He's got gray hair coming in and we're really excited.

Sorry about that last comment. I don't know where it came from. You know we're little weird here at the Stocker house. :)
