A Birthday

Aaron turned seventeen months today. Our baby is quickly becoming a boy.

He is almost entirely self-feeding. He loves to use forks and he is getting really good with a spoon. He's finally mastered applesauce which had been eluding him.
He is super helpful. Now the standing on the dishwasher was a new thing. I snapped this picture and then got him off of it. I'm not sure what that was about, but he really does love to help. He is very good at putting away his toys, throwing away his diapers and putting his laundry in the wash! I'll take advantage of it while I can.
He is intense about figuring out how things work. It is fun to watch him play.

He is still a very good eater. He eats most things - all fruits and most vegetables. He is not a meat eater at this point. We usually can't get more than three bites of a meat out of him (except for the occasional turkey), but he gets his protein in other ways. He LOVES Boca Burgers Original Chicken Patties! I am not sure why he loves those and won't eat chicken since I think they taste exactly the same, but it's working for him. He loves eggs and cheese and yogurt and all beans. He loves wheat bread and toast.

He is so smiley and happy! He is a ham and he loves to make you laugh!

This boy is such a joy and we are so blessed!

When I was talking to you on the phone, I meant to say something about this being his 17th month birthday, but got sidetracked listening to him.
Great pics.
