18 Months!!

Sunday, October 26, 2014

OH.MY.GOODNESS!! I can't believe you're 18 months old already!! You are now officially a big brother, and you are doing an amazing job adjusting! Since Stella has been born you look so much older to me. I look at you at times and think, where'd my baby boy go? We love you so much and are so proud of you!! 
What you did this month:
  • You weigh somewhere around 30 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, mashed potatoes 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 now a BIG BROTHER!! At times you get really excited about Stella and other times you could care less. So far we haven't had any "jealousy" meltdowns, and hopefully we won't!
  • 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 can also say "thircle" (which is a word you've learned at school this month) and "Mmmickymow", when you want to. 
  • You have 10  teeth now, and your canines are almost in.
  • 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 are doing much better at drop-off at school, and you're happy the entire time you're there!!
  • You seem to comprehend just about everything we say. 
  • You have started having less and less temper tantrums, which is such a blessing.  You usually only throw them when you can't have something you want...like a popsicle.
  • You are your daddy's shadow. You're always wanting to help him and be where he is.
  • You are also doing something new just this week.  You now "hide" when you are pooping in your diaper. I guess that's a good thing?? Not really sure, ha!
