First and most importantly perhaps, this boy is always busy. Not a moment goes by that he isn't climbing up somewhere he shouldn't, or casing the joint for some trouble. He has become pretty cleaver in his climbing technique. If he can't muscle his way up, then he creates a set of stair out of books, blocks, dump trucks, pillows or anything else he can use as leverage. The boy likes to climb!
Another trick Joshua is perfecting is his ability to sneak out of the house. Now that he can reach & open the doors he's always hoping we'll forget to latch the top lock & he can make a get away. No such luck yet, but he has been caught in the act several times. He just wants to be outside & luckily he has an interest in the backyard, so that is where he spends most of his day.
Azakie told me that one day I wouldn't be able to keep up with Joshua. The thought of that as I sat next to his sick little body seemed impossible. Here I am 18 months later, exhausted from a long day of chasing my Joshie. What an awesome feeling!

Yesterday officially marked the final day of OT (occupational therapy) for Joshua. It was only his second, or third session, but he no longer needs OT! He has reached every milestone that he should by 18 months & then some (he's 17 months right now). If anything he's developing too fast for my liking, I want him to be a baby forever. Way to go little buddy!
