This summer the Harford County Parks department did a Summer Challenge. Each time you visited one of the parks, you were to take a selfie and submit it online. At 7, we got t-shirts, at 11 we were entered in a drawing for a Pontoon boat ride and at 15 we were entered in a drawing for a year membership to the science museum. We accomplished 16! Here are the photos of our visits.

This will be the closest we get to a 17 month picture. I failed this month in taking G’s pictures.

How Big Are You?
You love to weigh yourself on the scale in mom and dad’s bathroom. So we do know that statistic. You weigh 27.5 pounds.

What’s Your Temperament?
You are starting to throw temper tantrums a little bit but you are still very chill most of the time. You do have things that you are more attached to these days and you don’t like it when we take them from you to move on to the next activity.

What Are You Eating?
Anything and everything. You pretty much eat anything that mom and dad eat. Blueberries, hummus, Chick-fil-a grilled nuggets, french fries, applesauce packets and eggs seem to be some of your favorites.

What Are you Sporting?
Some 18 months but you are starting to out grow them quickly. Mainly 24 month and 2T. You do love your basketball shorts and dry fit shirts during the day when we play. Most days at home though you don’t wear shorts. You rock the t-shirt and diaper most days at home.

How Are You Sleeping?
You have your moments where you go to bed like a champ and then other nights you like to cry. Since we don’t have the pacifier any more, we just let you cry most nights.
