Ridge is 18 months old!!

I cannot believe Ridge is 18 months old today!! He has changed so much in a short of a time. Just creating this post with all the pictures, just overwhelms me with emotion. He's such a joy and blessing in our lives. He's definitely a crucial piece in our growing family. Just some fun things about Ridge:

He loves plans, tractors and LIVING outside
He loves his daddy and helps him put on and take off his boots everyday.
He WILL NOT talk, but communicates so well :)
He loves to copy his sister Cambree in everything she does.
He's all boy in that he gets hurt daily, loves to be dirty, and loves to outdoors.
He gets to start nursery this Sunday (I'm doing a little celebratory dance :)

I am so lucky to have a beautiful little boy. I love him so much!!! Here are some fun pics of him over the past 18 months. They are in no order but they are still fun to look through.

So Ridge is really make it more and more relevant that i have a boy. These past couple days, he's added a new mark on his body once a day. 

Sunday he fell off a stool and hit his eye on the table. He split his eye back open and it has made a nasty scab on his eye. Then the very next day, he was climbing on our fence and I knew exactly what was going to happen as he was doing it. He got up on the first rung and without any pause, went right over the front. From that fall, he got a huge mark in between his eyes. I have to admit, I was laughing so hard as he did that one. I knew the outcome from the beginning.
Then today, he falls off the recliner onto the box next to it and scrapes his forehead. 

My mom jokes that I better not need to go to the ER any time soon because they will probably think of abuse. Probably true :)

Just as an added bonus story, yesterday we were playing outside. All of the sudden Cambree started to call my name and I could hear Ridge muffled. I thought at first she had pushed him down or something so I was yelling at Cambree. I saw her, and then no Ridge. So I go around my car where I could hear his cry coming Ridge. Then it hits me. I look down under the car and guess what, he was clear all the way under my car. I couldn't believe it. I thought for a second I needed to go get my camera for a picture, but he wasn't happy so I decided to just tell the story. Really funny. So Ridge has been a handful lately and I know there is more to come with my little boy getting into more things and exploring more.
