26: Bryson's world changed dramatically this past year! Around his first birthday he learned to crawl and by the end of 16 months he was fully walking. He struggled with ear infections so he had to get tubes around 15 months, which then started a routine of sleeping through the night for the first time! He was completely weaned from nursing at 17 1/2 months- he loved mama's milk! Now he loves food and does an excellent job of feeding himself. His language really developed from a few basic words to stringing 3-4 words together by his 2nd birthday. He is such an intelligent little boy- he has his colors down, he can count to 12 with little help, he can recognize several letters and hum the ABC's! He has been able to put together his puzzles for quite some time now. His absolute favorites are Elmo, firetrucks, slides and playgrounds, his wagon rides, the swimming pool, and helping with everything and anything! He is such a joy to our lives!
