He is a happy, snugly boy. He is now officially weaned, and has been doing great with a sippy.
He isn't a big fan of drinking milk, in fact, he would rather drink water than milk. He loves apple juice and just about ANY food (actually he will eat ANYTHING including dirt,rocks, grass, etc.). His favorite foods are beans, hot dogs, "baby Cheetos" (the Gerber graduate cheese puffs), cheese, yogurt, whipped cream and bananas. He loves to be held and carried around (I think because then he is "safe" from Natalie). He loves the horses and dogs, and can often be found looking out the window at them and banging on the window. He loves the water. He loves to play with Hunter and Natalie (as long as she isn't touching him).
He hates to walk, but can stand unsupported and will often stand up in the middle of the room and say, "Ah" to get your attention. Then he just smiles and calmly sits down. He has started climbing on stuff....which is just LOVELY.
If he is fussy he is usually hungry or thirsty.
He is a pretty good little sleeper, and usually takes one 1 1/2 to 2 hour nap and sleeps about 12 hours at night.
He has a few words that he is saying. His first word was, "Hi" (of course with a wave). He says, night-night, hi, Momma, Dada, Hunter, ball, up, yeah, gram (for Grandma)and some. But he says these on his own terms, and not often on command. He will copy us if we say, "La, La, La" and "Wha, ha, ha, ha" (evil laugh). He does consistantly answer the question, "what does a horse say?" with a raspberry. But we have discovered that is his answer if you replace horse with anything or anyone.
Happy birthday Tanner, Sweet Boy, Tanner-Man, Tanner Manner, Tan-man! We love you lots!

He loves to help me unload the dishwasher,
so much so, that he helps unload even if I am trying to load
