Joseph is so active and talking a lot more. He has so many words now! I lost count after 60. He has lots of "favourite things" now, too: tractors, motorcycles, garbage trucks, birds, dogs, babies, books, shoes, anything with buttons to push, playing with balls, bubbles, going "out" (to the park), his bottle (milk). He gets excited about these things. What he does not like: sitting in his high chair to eat, going inside, having his diaper changed, ending playtime.
At 18 months he is becoming such a fun little boy. He gives more cuddles now too. He calls out "Mummy!... Mummy!" all the time (not sure if this is a good thing). We love him so much!
