16 months - almost 17

i can't believe it's been over 2 months since my last post, and it's been 4 months since i've updated about my little one...he's now 16 months old...almost 17!
 i'm exhausted trying to keep up with him...he's all over the place, running, not walking...
he doesn't say much, but when he does he says dada, mama, ba (for ball) cheese...which is more like sheeese, he tries to say strawberries...but it just comes out ssssss...shoes are shhss...and so are fish...
he wants to wear his crocs all of the time...even in the house...
my once eat anything that was put in front of him baby is now one picky, throw everything on the floor toddler! strawberries are his favorite...he runs to the fridge saying ssssss throughout the day. meal time is my least favorite time of the day...finding things for him to eat is so hard...he'll eat any fruit, but vegetables and meat...no way! i've tried dipping sauces to entice him...ranch, honey mustard, sour cream, ketchup...he loves the dips and licks them off the food and throws the food on the floor...
outside is his favorite room in the house! he'd spend all day outside exploring if i'd let him...leaves, sticks, lizards, birds, all are so interesting...

he's all boy...he doesn't mind the dirt like mommy does, but he also loves bath time!
he loves giving hugs and kisses...i love it! he's so loving and sweet! i love how he buries his head under my neck with his blankie when it's nap time or bed time.
he blows kisses and waves to say bye-bye...
he also loves to help mommy clean up by throwing things in the trash can and saying sshhh (his version of trash)...and putting his toys away in his toy baskets...
oh how i love this little blessing and want to cherish every moment that God has given to us!
