20 Months Old- 8/30/13

Weight/Length- I would guess between 29-30 pounds and 33ish inches

Eating- Getting pickier with food. You don't seem to like meat as much as before and still don't really like veggies. Prefer fruits and bread and have developed a love of cut up cherry tomatoes which makes me happy because I love tomatoes as well. 

Sleep- Sleeping well. So long as we stick to our bedtime routine you go to bed easily and rarely wake up in the middle of the night. My only complaint would be that you tend to wake up pretty early, around 6-6:15am, which is not so fun on the weekends.

Clothes- Still 18 and 24 months.

Diapers- Size 5 both daytime and overnight.

Appearance- Still blonde, wavy hair with a few curls when it gets long. Eyes are looking more green everyday but will look more blue if you are wearing blue. You are thinning out now that you are more active and losing most of your baby chub :(

Personality- You are Mr. Personality. Now that you are talking and imitating more you love to try to make us laugh and do a good job of it. You can be shy at first when out in public but after a few minutes you turn on the charm and love to say Hi and Bye Bye to people. You have the typical toddler tantrum when you don't get your way and 6pm seems to still be your meltdown hour. I think you just start to get hungry and anxious for dinner (much like your mother) because as soon as you finish dinner you are back to your happy self. You are still a sweetheart that likes to give hugs and kisses.

Likes- Pretty much the same as last month:- You are OBSESSED with the iPad and watching school bus videos and Baby Einstein videos. You refer to the iPad as bus and it's the first thing you ask for in the morning. I let you watch videos while I get ready but try to limit you to just the mornings.

-Still very attached to your ladybug pillow pet and often carry it around the house with you.

-Climbing on the massage chair and jumping off onto a pillow.

-Playing with your lego building blocks, you've gotten much better with them.

-Eating crackers, I swear you are constantly saying "cracker"

-First time apart from mommy and daddy for more than a day and spent 5 days with your Nana.
-We bought you your first potty and you like to sit on it but haven't actually gone on it yet.
-Saying more two word phrases
-Can say No and will shake your head while doing it. And it's pretty much the answer you always give when asked a question.
-Can say and point to your elbow, butt and penis.
-Can walk down the front steps and the two steps into the living room without holding onto anything.
-Will jump when we ask you to jump.

New words that you say regularly and in the right context:
-School Bus
-Big Truck
-Boo Boo (and will point to a cut or bruise)
-Ow (you say this when you see an ambulance)
-Please (sounds like Peeese)
-Thank you (sounds like Tant Tu)
-D'oh (like what Homer Simpson says when he messes up)
-Mo Mo (for Elmo)
-Out (and you say this as soon as you finish eating and want out of your highchair)
-Mow (for your lawn mower)
-Pee Pee

I love that he says bus for ipad. Taylor calls ipad Elmo because her first app on it was an elmo ABC app.

Silly kids.

That shirt he is wearing is really cute! Chloe has gotten picky with her food too - will love it one day and hate it the next. So weird. Happy 20 months!
