I have pictures of Carly doing the same thing with her feet.

These pics are precious.

Erin Ward said...

Oh my goodness. That picture is just TOO much!!!! He is way beyond cute. I can hardly stand it. :)

He is already ADORABLE...but you add "crocs" to any ensemble a child is wearing and "oh my goodness"...he's just "to die for"!

Fran said...

You just eat that up with a spoon!!
Darlin...just darlin!!

I've only been visiting your blog for about six months and he has grown up so much! He is SO cute and he looks like he is going to have a great sense of humor!

Thanks for sharing your little boy with us!

The camera loves him.

Shelly said...

Oh my! He's such a little man!

shelley said...

You're killin' me here! I have an (almost) 11 month old boy, and he's just getting so big, so fast. Looking at your pictures, I can see the not-so-distant future. What a little man! I love that they're getting bigger, but sometimes I just want time to STOP!

Teri said...

Total Doll! And all boy!

Jungle Mom said...

He looks all boy!!!

Carrie said...

Love the tongue affect! Done is such true guy fashion. Adds so much to his already adorable face!

Your mom should be so proud of his continued offerings of "praise dancing."

Kelly said...

Did he learn those moves at Praise Dancing with Granny?

Too, too cute!

kittyhox said...

I've never seen an 18 month old look so macho! I love that first photo.

Our 15 month old sticks his chest out when he runs around, too. But not to that extent! Cute!

OMGosh...You have to listen to Plumb's new song, "In My Arms". It captures a mother's heart for her child.

Amy T said...

He is so beautiful! Or I guess I should say handsome, but that doesn't seem to be a good enough word!

RealEstateGirl said...

He is so precious! Like I've said before, too beautiful to be a boy!!! Love those eyes! (and the little crocs too!)

Abby said...

look at those eyes...

Hey Amanda...
I know you and your mom get so many prayer requests and I would like to ask if you could add a "siesta" to your list?? She is in a Wed. morning "Beth Moore" bible study group in Arkansas with my mom and has been battling cancer for a very long time....she is 40 yrs old and has 4 precious children and an amazing husband by her side.

I'm sending you her blog to read and maybe pass on to your mom. She has been given 2 weeks to live and will lose this earthly battle to this most horrible disease.

She has been a faithful, God loving, amazing woman through this journey and your moms studies have been such a blessing to her.

Thanks for praying for her. Her name is Kim McNabb and her blog is www.kimsprayer.blogspot.com

Bless you friend.

He is too cute! I love your new favorite pose (picture). It really shows his personality.

Profbaugh said...

Oh Amanda,

My heart is so tender right now. I just balled when I saw these pix. You see I just blogged about my first-born leaving for college (and I thought I was done with the crying!) I remember all too well my Matthew at 18 months--like Jackson.

Treasure these moment siesta. They'll pass all too fast.

Very weepy,
~Cheryl

Kay Altic said...

Stephanie said...

Don't you just love the zest for life little guys have?!

Sam McClure said...

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

I LOVE the 18 mo. letter, and the pictures too! Jackson is adorable, and so, so sweet. And funny. And "all boy."

connorcolesmom said...

He is throwing out that chest like a big boy!
I love the dancing picture. He is moving so fast!!
What is really funny is how a year ago he is topless with jean shorts on eating his toes and now here he is dancing on those toes topless with jean shorts on- too cute!
Thanks for the pics

CrownLaidDown said...

He can really shake his groove-thang, can't he? I hope you video it for a keepsake :)

Precious and beautiful boy! Mmmm, Lord, bless this sweet family.
Love in Him,
holly

jen said...

Sweet sweet sweet boy! I love these pics. :) And what is it with toes? My youngest STILL does that! He's 3 so I guess that's not too bad. :) Cute baby, Ma'am. Thank you for sharing!

Michelle said...

That first picture is CLASSIC! I love the tounge out! He is cuter every day!

Allison said...

Handsome, Handsome man! Yes, please link me now...I am passoniate about my latest post! Oh Jackson, I would love to meet you!

Heather said...

He's a cutie! Great pics. they grow up way to fast.

BTW ... how's your grandfather doing? We have been praying.

jennyhope said...

Amanda he looks just like you! I have been praising Him for my little one. I never knew I could love someone with such tenacity. Today is the anniversary of the birth and death of my first born and it is so bittersweet because of the blessing I have with my sweet Morgan. Anyway, He is so good!
Praise Him for these little blessings and His great and precious promises to us! 2 Peter 1

Jackie said...

oh my gosh- can he get anymore handsome? You HAVE to frame that one up top- TOO CUTE!!
Wow, your little man is one handsome guy- you are going to start fighting the ladies off early!!
Thanks for sharing.

Them Chandlers said...

He looks like such a big boy in that first picture!! Happens so fast!

jennyhope said...

thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. your family means so much to me and I would not be where I am without the discipling through the Bible studies that your mom has done. I give Him the praise. I pray for you guys constantly and I am so thankful for you!

The Bargain Shopper Lady said...

He is too cute! Hope you get some good bargains with the shopping class! I am very encouraged by your feedback! I want full reports of any future savings. jk! :)

Mommy Dot Com said...

I want you to know Amanda that you have inspired me to create my own blog. I see all the pictures of Jackson as he is growing and it makes me want to do the same for my babies - well, there not babies anymore but they're babies to me and they still make great photos to post. I only wish I started sooner. Our youngest is now three!
