21 Months- 9/30/13

Weight/Length- Thanks to a last minute trip to the doctors on Friday we actually know this- weight = 30.6 lbs and height = 33.5"


Eating- Still picky and not eating as much during meals. You seem to prefer to snack throughout the day which I'm trying to keep to a minimum. Like most toddler, one day you will love something and the next day you will hate it. But you still love fruits, you will always eat fruit.
 
Sleep- You sleep great through the night but still waking up between 6-6:15am most days.

Clothes- Still 18 and 24 months.


Diapers- Size 5 both daytime and overnight.

Appearance- Hair is still very blond and we got it cut again. Your hair is very thick and grows quickly. Eyes are still a green/grey combo. Your eyes always look brown from a distance and in pictures, I can never seem to get a good shot of your eye color in pictures.

Personality- You are becoming a lot more outgoing especially in public, you always say hi to people when we are out. You are still constantly running around and playing and getting into mischief and the tantrums have been ramping up when you don't get your way. You also seem to prefer routine and consistency like your mother and get upset if we don't do something we always do. You are becoming much more independent, wanting to do everything yourself and help us do things.

Likes-
-Still OBSESSED with school buses and fire trucks and cars. You always spot them when we are in the car and yell out "Bus" or "Truck"
-Playing outside with Zachary and Jordynn. You would stay out there all night if we let you.
-Watching videos on the iPad.
-Visiting with both of your nana's and your papa.
-Stroller walks and the park

Milestones-
-First trip to the zoo
-First sleepover at Nana's house
-Attended first birthday party for another child
-Saying more two and three word phrases
-Recognizing and saying more animals
-Can recognize and say A,B,C
-Can repeat almost any word we say
-Can say your aunt and uncles names as well as some cousins
-Can say touchdown while raising both arms up.
-Can help sing and do hand motions for The Wheels on the Bus, Twinkle Twinkle Little Start and Itsy Bitsy Spider

New words/phrases that you say regularly and in the right context:
-"Sit Mama"
-"Out Mama"
-"I got Mow" (when you are pushing your mower)
-"All Done"
-"Bye Dada Boat"
-"Big Truck"
-"Mama car"
-"Whoa" (when you see a big truck or school bus)
-"Pop-up Book"
-"Pirate" and "Arrgh"
-Michael, Chell (for Michelle), Joe, Carleigh, Madison and Matt (all family members)
-Getting very close to saying "I love you" so we can actually understand it.

What a cutie!! That's so odd about his eye color. My daughter has very caramel brown eyes, but they often look super dark brown in pictures.
