When I think of Porter, the first thing that comes to mind is CHUNK. This kid is a brick. In fact, at his 18 month check-up the pediatrician advised switching him to 1% milk because his weight was, quote, "off the chart".
IN THE THICK OF THINGS: Porter goes where Eli goes, and must do what Eli does. Sometimes this works out and Mom gets laundry folded, and then other times there are screams and tears.
When he wants to be picked up to see what's going on he has learned to say "Hug?" instead of "Up!" because honestly, who can resist that?
BRAVE. Eli was and is a pretty cautious child, but Porter is brazen. He charges into every situation like the tank that he is. Below he is meeting his first ferret.
Not only is Porter unafraid of the vacuum cleaner (still one of Eli's greatest nemeses) he has totally embraced it. He follows me around with his own vacuum whenever I pull mine out and I LOVE IT.
Finally, ADORABLE. I love my babies, but 18 months is when I start to feel like I'm actually bonding with my kid. I love watching him learn new words and establish his own personality. I love watching him and Eli play together. I also love leaving him in nursery, because he's extra adorable when I pick him up again.
Happy 18 months Super Port!
