Toby Update!

Toby is FINALLY walking! He started a couple of weeks ago and was very wobbly, now he's all over the place. He will still fall or get wobbly at times but he's pretty fast and can get from a to b pretty quickly. He is starting to pick up on what I say to him. For instance, I'll ask him to go open the door (when it's not fully shut) and he will go straight to the door and open it. If I ask him to go pick his cup up out of the floor, he will do it right away. Now if he'll just stop spilling his milk everywhere we'll be good to go! These "no spill" sippy cups are a joke! Every single cup we have tried, he has spilled the contents out of it. He has 12 teeth now. 6 on top, 6 on bottom. He now weighs 24lbs and wears 18mo clothes. He says a few words: Mama, daddy (dada), Oah-for Noah, Nana, Papa, I looloo - For I love you, and he grunts when he doesn't get his way. He also says "uh oh", No, hey, bye bye, ky ky (for our dog skyler), Yum, and oww. .I know there's more I just can't think of it. He also comes to me and acts like he's taking food from me and he will act like he's putting something in his mouth. It's too cute. He tries to get into everything..and succeeds. I do get onto him when he does something he shouldn't do, like biting. He will go up to Noah and say "awww Oah" and starts to hug him - then takes a chunk out of Noah's shoulder! Not literally, but he leaves his teeth marks! He's way more rowdy than Noah is and ever was. He can dish it and take it. Noah, on the other hand, is a softie and doesn't like rough play much. He can dish out the roughness but can't take it! It's such a neat thing to see how night and day they are.
Toby has had a runny nose and cough for a few weeks and has been on breathing treatments, antibiotics, and eye drops. His eyes had a minor infection but the drops cleared it up literally overnight. Not sure how that happened, but glad it didn't get bad. He dropped a heavy object on his right big toe the other day. It turned his toenail purple and looked horrible. He cried and kept holding his little foot-it was pitiful! I had to give him Tylenol that night for the pain because he couldn't sleep. He kept grabbing his foot and saying "Oooh". Luckily he had a follow-up dr appointment the next day so I had the ped look at it. He had to cut his toenail from the top to the bottom. Toby sat there like a champ and just grunted, didn't even scream like I was wanting to! He sat and watched the dr do with. Ugh! I was dying. He will eventually lose that toenail, I'm guessing, and a new one will grow back. It looks 10x better now, thankfully. I have been thinking about getting his baby mullet cut off but everytime I think about making an actual appointment, I just can't bring myself to do it. I don't want him to become a Cyrus but I love baby hair! Once you cut it, it doesn't grow back as soft. Guess I'll let it be for now..hey, who says baby mullets aren't popular in the year 2011?
Excuse the BabyLegs and boots - it was Halloween. His mullet is tucked in his shirt LOL..really, its tiny but its there!
