Thanks!

DS will be 15 months old tomorrow. He is still completely enamored with Mickey Mouse and goes nuts anytime he sees Mickey or Minnie on anything. We will be walking through the store and he'll get excited because of a product with Mickey or Minnie on it...seeing it before we do. I'll have to see if I can get video of how excited he gets.
Hooray ~ that means a new picture! That would be cute to see a video of him seeing something in the store :mickey:

Here is DS at 15 months old. He's definitely not a baby anymore and he amazes us every day with how smart he is and what all new things he figures out.

I tried getting video of him watching and talking to a video of someone walking around MK but couldn't get the quality just right. I'll try again soon. This boy loves WDW and he's never even been there!

Definitely looks like a cute little toddler now. How hard is it to get him to sit still for a photo now? Can't believe how he is dwarfing Mickey Mouse!!

Actually...DW is the one who took the good picture of DS. I took about 25 pictures to no avail before handing the camera over. When DW started taking picture...I played a video on my phone of the "Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It Street Party!" that DS goes nuts over. I put the phone right above the camera lens and whenever Mickey would be on screen DS would start smiling and laughing.

So now you know our post-12 month secret to getting DS to smile for the camera! ;)

LittleY is just the cutest. :D
My mum was down staying with me a couple of weeks ago and we went through from the beggining to 14months, she was amazed that you kept reporting weekly for us.
Thanks again for sharing you precious son with us.

He is just adorable! Thanks for posting. Have you planned on when you're taking him to a Disney Park?

If we can afford it...we will try taking him either December of 2014 or January/February of 2015. We know we want to take him before he turns 3 so he'll get into the parks for free. So our biggest goals before then are to get him out of diapers and save up enough money. We'll also have to figure out the timing of more kids...and whether or not DW would want to be pregnant on a WDW trip. So...lots of factors.

Sorry for the delay. Here is DS at 16 months. He's getting so big and so smart! He just started saying "Mommy" which just warms DW's heart every single time. "Daddy" was his first word several months ago...so I'm so happy he's finally saying "Mommy".

Anyway...here he is on 8/16/2013

I can't see his photo :( That is nice that he is starting to say Mommy though. I'm guessing more and more words will be tumbling out now as well. Pretty soon he'll be stringing whole phrases together like, "Hey Mommy and Daddy, don't you think it's about time we visited the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida?!" ;) :lol:
