So yesterday my baby boy turned 18 months. I now have a 1 1/2 year old. It's crazy to think of how it was not that long ago that he was born! We recently started to upload some videos we have of him from 3 months old on and we can't believe how much he has grown and changed in that short amount of time.
He is down to one nap a day. That was a bit of a rough transition but he has done so well at it. It took him about a week to get adjusted to the new schedule but now he will nap one time a day for about 2 1/2-3 hours!!! He gets up around 730-8a depending on the day and goes to bed around 8ish.
We have been able to take advantage of the nice weather (up until this week) and spend most our day outside. He loves to walk up and down the street and stop and talk about what he is seeing. He loves the park especially the slide. He likes to try and climb up the slide instead of down. I recently took him to Pump It Up and he loved the big slides...mommy not so much! If anyone knows me, they know I do not have an adventurous side and sadly the heights of inflatable slide that little kids can handle...kind of made me nervous! But I rallied through and we went down the slides together.
He is still a good eater. He likes to stick to things he knows but that's ok for now. We try to incorporate veggies when we can. He also has a bit of a temper. We have started putting him in a "time out" chair so we will see how that goes.
He can say quite a few things (these are from memory)...
tant tu (thank you)
At his 18 month check up he got his last shot until he turns 4!!!! He is 31.5 inches (25-50%) and 22.8 lbs (25-50%). The doctor said he is still on the smaller side but looks great and is consistent in his weight gain and height! He just was never a big baby!
I have registered him for MDO starting in the fall! It is bitter sweet but I know he will LOVE it and it will give mommy a break during the day two days a week!!
Happy 18 months, Little Man!!!
