18 months old!!

Rafael turned 18 month old on Easter Monday. It's hard to believe that he is growing up so fast. He woke up 4 o'clock that morning and was throwing up until 8am but then started to feel better so we headed outside after lunch. He loves the outdoors!!! He could spend all day out there but of course the weather here is still so cold. He enjoyed blowing bubbles, playing in the grass and playing on our neighbours slide. I had planned on baking him another cake but we ran out of time since we spend most of the afternoon outside.

Rafael still only says a few words but he definitely seems to understand alot more. When I sing "head and shoulders, knees and toes" he'll now point to his head and shoulders. Soooo cute!!! He loves to hide things, which is not so great. He has hidden my keys on a few occassions so I've started to put them in a new place out of his reach. He has hidden the remote to the tv in the playroom and we still haven't found it. That was over a week ago!! We have seached high and low but have no clue where it is. He's too cute!!

He saw the Easter bunny on Saturday and was not impressed. If the bunny was a few feet away, he would wave and smile but if Brian tried to place Rafael in the bunny's arms, he would scream so there was no picture with the Easter bunny this year. I hope he responds better to Santa Claus!!!

Happy 18 month birthday, Rafael! Great pictures - they made my day :) It looks like he and Sid are getting along better now - is that true? Here's hoping that Rafael likes jolly St. Nick more than the Easter Bunny!
