18 Months- 6/30/13

You're 1 1/2 years old!!
Only 6 more months until you're 2!!

Weight/Length- You don't have your 18 month appt for a couple weeks so I will update then but right around 30 pounds I would guess.

Eating- Nothing much new here. Still love fruit and most meat. Not a big fan of veggies though we've discovered you seem to like edamame and peas so I'll take what we can get.   

Sleep- Also pretty much the same. In bed around 7:45pm and up around 6:30am, typically you will wake up briefly at least once during the night but fall back to sleep easily. All last week you were waking up between 5-5:30am which was NOT cool but now you seem back on track. Not quite sure what the deal was with that. Typically nap from noon-2pm.

Clothes- Mainly 18 months and some 24 months. You seem to be thinning out now that you are so active so I'm hoping some of you winter clothes from a few months back will still fit this winter.  

Diapers- Size 5 both daytime and overnight.

Appearance- Your hair is still getting lighter and your eyes still change color depending on what you are wearing. Daddy had blonde hair as a toddler so we keep wondering if yours will eventually darken as well.

Personality- You are ALL boy, you love all the stereotypical boy stuff and are wild and rambunctious. I think the fact that your daycare class is full of boys plays a large part in this as well. You are still very loving and sweet and give lots of hugs and kisses. You usually follow directions very well and are well behaved in public. You have tantrums like any toddler but nothing excessive or unusual. You've become much more clingy to me when I drop you off at daycare and shy around strangers.

-Playing with your new water table.
-Playing outside
-Going to the store and people watching while in the shopping cart
-Playing on the iPad
-Sitting my lap while I read you a book or do your flashcards
-Doing your wooden puzzles with the cars and trucks
-Watching videos of yourself on mommy's phone and doing Facetime with grandma

-You are able put all the pieces back in the right spot on your wooden Melissa and Doug puzzle with the cars and trucks.
-You are able to navigate some of the Apps on the iPad by yourself.
-Able to understand and follow 90% of the directions I give you.
-Using your spoon and fork much better.
-Saying SO many more words this month!

New words that you say regularly and in the right context:
-Cold (pronounced Old)
-PaPa (for Grandpa)
-Beep Beep
-Copter (for Helicopter)
-Oink Oink (when asked what sound a pig makes)
-Mooo (when asked what sound a cow makes)

New ride from Grandma!

He's able to put all of these puzzle pieces back in the right spot.

Working the iPad like it's his job.
