16 Months!!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Where to start?! You have become quite a rambunctious little boy this month! You're always running, climbing, or playfully throwing things. You definitely keep us on our toes. Teething has definitely taken over the past couple of weeks, and we're both over it! The next couple of months are going to be huge transition times for you so we've been having a lot of fun time. You start school next week, and of course, in just 6 short weeks you'll be a big brother! We love you so much, and I'm so happy that you'll always be my baby boy! We love you, Wyatt!
What you did this month:
  • You weigh 26 pounds (78th percentile) and are 35 inches tall (100th percentile).
  • You are wearing size 4 diapers.
  • You wear size 18 months in pants and 24 months in shirts.
  • You are drinking milk and juice from cups during the day. NO MORE BOTTLES!!
  • Your favorite foods right now are yogurt, spaghetti, pizza, French fries and any kind of fruit. You also discovered that you're a fan of ketchup, although, I don't always offer it and you're ok with that. Oh, and "special milk", aka, chocolate milk (which is about 98% milk and 2% chocolate).
  • You usually wake up between 7:30 & 8, take a nap around 11:30 for about 2 hours, and go down around 8.
  • You're pretty much sleeping through the night.  You've been waking up during the night some because of teething, but you don't need a bottle anymore. We also got rid of your "before bed bottle".
  • You're really proving me wrong with this "big brother" transition, I was worried you wouldn't be ready.
  • You literally climb on anything and everything.  You use random toys and things as step-stools. We have to keep the chairs away from the table so you don't climb onto the table.
  • You have started this new "growling" thing.  You usually do it when you're being a little rambunctious, but it's still really cute and funny.
  • You have 8 teeth now and your incisors are starting to cut.
  • You love to be outside, unfortunately it's so miserably hot and humid I just can't take much.
  • You still love to "help" all the time.  You "help" with the dishes, laundry, and vacuuming.  
  • You have, what I like to call, "fussy time".  It usually starts around 4:30 and lasts until daddy gets home.  I try and save all of our TV time for this time of day.
  • Your favorite time of day is definitely when daddy gets home. It's the sweetest thing, you give him the biggest hug everyday when he walks through the door.
  • You're jibber-jabbering all day now. It's the cutest thing when you talk to me like I'm supposed to know what you're saying.
  • We went on vacation with your Grandpa, Nana, Uncle Levi, and cousin Avery to Branson.  You had a really good time, except for usually dinner time.
  • Mimi came down and stayed with us for a few days this month while daddy was out of town.
  • You learned the sign for "more" and were using it pretty frequently, you've kind of slacked up a bit in the past week or so. We're working on "all done" now.
  • You seem to comprehend just about everything we say.  I even asked you to pick up a block and used "under daddy's chair" and you knew exactly what to do.
  • You blow your lips together now when we ask you what an elephant says.  We think it's awesome!
  • Your new favorite toy, well, besides your kitchen, is Mr. Potato Head. I'm not sure if you like "dressing" him or throwing the pieces all over the floor more.
  • You are still working on using utensils when you eat. You try but you usually can't get anything actually on the fork/spoon.
  • You got your first haircut this month.  It makes you look so much older.
