17 Months!!

Friday, September 26, 2014

17 months!! It doesn't seem possible, and you're about to be a big brother! I'm so ready to see you as you embrace your new role. You're such a happy and busy guy. You don't ever stop, unless you're sleeping. You definitely keep us on our toes. You've done so great with all the house work this month. We've had a lot of transitions and you have just rolled with the punches, much better than mama has.  It's hard to think that this is the last monthly update where you're our only baby. We love you so much!
What you did this month:
  • You weigh somewhere around 26 pounds and are around 36 inches tall.
  • You are wearing size 5 diapers.
  • You wear size 18 months in shorts, 2T in pants, and 24M/2T in shirts.
  • 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 noon for about 2.5 hours, and go down at night around 8.
  • You are officially sleeping all through the night!! It's been so nice, and an answered prayer!!
  • You met your baby cousin, Aria. You did OK for a second while mama held her. Hoping it'll be easier when we're at home with Stella.
  • You have started putting your hand up next to your ear when you're "listening" or you hear something.
  • Your favorite things to say are "uh-oh" and "Where'd it go?" (with hands up), but you babble and "talk" all day long.
  • You have 10  teeth now.
  • Sometimes I can get you to point to your ears, bellybutton, nose, head, and tummy. You have to be in the mood though.
  • You still really enjoy Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
  • You started school this month. You attend Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30-11:30.  You cry when I drop you off but are starting to do better when I'm not there. Well, until all the kids start leaving and you get upset again. I guess you think someone else is going to take you, or I'm not coming.
  • You seem to comprehend just about everything we say.  Although you don't always listen.  But you do usually fall for bribes.
  • You have started to have more "temper tantrums". Most of the time they're due to your inability to communicate with me what you want. You definitely know how to throw'em, though. You usually end up laid out on the floor screaming.
  • You are your daddy's shadow. You're always wanting to help him and be where he is.
  • You've discovered tractors and cars that make noise and move on their own. You think they're pretty awesome.
