18 Months (ALREADY!) YIKES….

Chompy is now 18 months old.  1 1/2 years old…an official toddler!!  WOW! That went so fast!  I have a new perspective on baby-hood.  It’s over in an instant.  I hope to keep being able to cherish each milestone and moment with Chompy as he grows! Smile  He’s such a delight!

  1. I'm going to claim his ability to say "Manny" as a condensed version of "Miss Annie."
