J is 19 months!

I'm sure people say this all the time during monthly update posts, but where has the time gone!? I can't believe I have a toddler, let alone one that is 19 months! It's ironic how time seems to be flying with J getting bigger yet this pregnancy is definitely dragging and dragging!
I'm amazed how much he changes from month to month (even day to day). He loves trucks, cars and construction vehicles. We have to go for drives on an almost daily basis in order to satisfy the constant questions of "tractor?".

His vocabulary is crazy and he's adding new words daily. It's funny listening to him repeat the words we are saying. The new one this week is "wait". I'm working on teaching him this so that when Baby Boy #2 comes he is able to be patient and wait for certain things as opposed to having me get everything then and there. The only negative to it is that he's started to say "wait" when it's nap time or bed time!

He also loves reading. We have a large number of books. Currently, he's stuck on Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and a little book about Babies.

He's warming up to the water still. He prefers the water to be sitting as opposed to splashing. He still isn't a huge fan of the splash pad, but prefers little wading pools instead. We're going to try swimming lessons later in the fall in order to give him some 1 on 1 time as well as some more time in the water. I'd like him to be swimming by the time he starts school.

We've taken out the itty-bitty baby clothes so that I can get them washed and organized and I can't believe he used to fit in them and that some of them were even big on him! It's amazing how time flies!

Here he is with his teddy bear as a newborn:

And here he is with it at 19 months:
