The start of Fall!

Fall is my favorite season - and I think it agrees with Sully as well. This has been such a busy season for us - with Griff in school during the day and working at night, me working part time from home and taking care of Sully full time - we don't have time for much else these days. Sullivan is a busy little guy too - He is growing up so fast! He started walking, talking a ton, and is always on the move. He loves to play and walk anywhere he can. He's also started dancing, which is about the cutest thing you've ever seen.
This is such a cute stage he's in right now - he is constantly exploring his world and learning so much. He has such a big vocabulary for his age - some of his most common words currently are: doggie, cow, turtle, duck, all done, all gone, bite, water, drink, plane, car, truck, bye-bye, hi, banana, grapes, toe, nose and of course mommy, daddy, meme, pops, and nanna. We're also working on animal sounds and currently he knows what a doggie and cow say!
This past week was the first time Sullivan has been sick in his 15 months! I can't believe we went that long without him catching anything. He got some sort of virus and had a pretty high fever (over 101) for 5 days! Combine that with cutting his one-molars and it has been a rough week in the Stroope household. His fever finally broke yesterday, but now his teeth are just killing him. I feel so bad for him, but we're making it through the best we can. He loves chewing on his toothbrush - I think it helps massage his gums and helps the pain. Whatever works at this point!
Sullivan is such a joy and everyday we love him more than we ever thought we could! Here are some pictures from the past few months.

Ready for some Cowboy football! Go Pokes!!

The sweetest smile in the world!
