18 months

well, my little monkey is 1 1/2 years old.

where the last 6 months have gone, i have no idea.

but the transformations that have occurred over the last 18 months are astounding, and my baby bud is now a bona-fide toddler, quickly on his way to becoming a big boy.

18 month stats - 

  • 33.5 inches tall (75th percentile)
  • 25 lbs, 9 oz (50th percentile)

everything else - 
  • LOVES to dance - he's definitely got moves i don't.  at least one of us will be a dancer.
  • claps his hands every time a song ends - doesn't matter if it's on the radio, at home, at church...
  • claps his hands when he does anything he would be praised for
  • loves to say the words 'UP' and 'EGGS'.  he also loves to be picked up and eat eggs (especially if he can dip them in ketchup).  :)
  • is becoming an expert at eating with a spoon and fork
  • his separation anxiety is really starting to ramp up
  • has started running = major heart attacks for mama
  • full-on launches himself at us, whether we're prepared or not...we've learned to be on alert at all times
  • loves bubbles
  • loves washing his hands
  • loves digging up rocks (we're working on the 'not throwing' them part)
  • does NOT love brushing his teeth. definitely the biggest battle we're currently fighting.
  • is no longer content to chill out in shopping carts while mama goes about her shopping business - i'm learning to speed-shop
  • has become a chatter-box.  not all the time, and most of the time, it's his own little language, but when he gets going, it's the most endearing thing to experience.
