I can't believe that in under a month I will have a toddler. I am completely in denial and happy to stay there, thank you very much.
Anyway, I might be a little tiny bit obsessed with birthdays so during the month of August we're celebrating the 28 days of Clay! Each day I've been giving him a small present and posting one of my 28 favorite pictures of him on my Instagram here. I know. I'm crazy. I also made a wreath for our front door to put out each August:
Clay's favorite toys are his stuffed animals for the win! Although he does love playing with balls a lot too.

Clay's diaper size is a size 3.
Clay's favorite foods are peas (they make his world go round), black beans, eggs, strawberries. Well, really anything. Haha. He has been feeding himself now for a couple of months (except for yogurt, oatmeal, etc).
Clay's clothing size is...9-12 months. Although we are still sporting a couple of 3 month onesies and a handful of 6 month clothes.
Clay's newest "tricks" are climbing, waving at everything (hi there, ceiling fan), standing on his own, and throwing the ball.
Clay weight and height are: we didn't measure again this month but I'm gonna guess 20ish pounds and 30ish inches.
Clay's vocabulary consists of: dada, hi there, hi kitty, August (friend at daycare), Amy (aunt), and guh (short for Guinny, the fish). Sadly, we haven't said mama in a couple of months. I'm pretty sure he thinks dada and mama are interchangeable.
Clay loves talking on the phone, pushing an upside down basket around as a walker, laughing, greeting people who visit his daycare class (seriously, they've started calling him the Kindercare greeter), sleeping on people, and taking selfies.
I'm so glad I started doing these recaps on here because I might have forgotten to keep up with his scrapbook...
Is anybody else in denial about having a toddler?
Am I the only crazy mom?
HELP! Any tips for the bottle weaning process?
We attempted to start this past week and it was a fail. My grandmother keeps telling me I need to look at the farmer's almanac signs to see when the right day is to start.
