Easter with Baker and a Recap

I really haven't been the best blogger lately so I'll try and get as much info as possible in when I do decide to blog. Baker is 20 months now and time has been going by so fast. I can't even begin to process that my baby will be 2 in no time. It just doesn't seem fair. He is doing great and growing very fast. He weighs 27 lbs and is 33 inches tall. He is built just like his Daddy, wide shoulders. I'm starting to see why I had a C-section :)
Baker loves sports. You give him a ball and he will figure out some kind of sport to play with it. Usually its hockey, he will take any ball and any long object and hit it around the house. He doesn't care if its a baseball and a baseball bat or a golf club and a golf ball, it usualy becomes a puck and a hockey stick. He really has a great imagination. He plays with these little farm animals and really brings them to life with animal sounds and feeding time and than of course knocking them all down for sleeping time.
Baker has also been working on using the potty. He is pretty much down to underwear only when we are at home and pull-ups when we are out on the town. He still wears a diaper at night and when we are on trips. I haven't pushed him past using the potty at home. Except for those times he walks up to his dad super close and whispers "poop Dad" than we take him to the bathroom where ever we are. I'm so glad that he has dedicated his father as poop guy!
We were starting to get worried about Bakers talking ability's. His little friends seemed to be talking like crazy and Baker was stuck on the grunts and pointing to get his point across. He wouldn't repeat us even if we knew he new the word. We have a feeling that our little guy is VERY stubborn and will do things his way when he is ready. I hate to say it but I think he gets that from me. But good news is in the last couple of weeks we have taken away the Binky most of the time during the day, and he has started to say more words. Its so fun to hear him say things.
OK Ill end here with some really cute Easter pics. We took him to church Sunday morning and I have to say, he was the cutest baby there :) Worst behaved but for sure the cutest :)
