18 Months Old

Yesterday Liam and I went to his 18 month well baby check up and got to meet his new doctor. He was very good but totally not into the idea of having someone make him stop running  around to check him out.


He was 26 pounds (this was the first time he was weighed without clothes on, this old doctor just made them take their shoes off, and 32 inches tall, his BMI was in the 80%tile…the kiddo is just solid. He checked out great and the doctor was pleased with all of the things he is able to do. The next time we got back to the doctors with be for little sister/brothers first check up…crazy!

His favorite things to do at this age is play with his trucks, cars and trains. He can climb on everything (like when he spotted a pack of hot wheels i was hiding from him on the dining room table and pulled the chair out, climbed on, then climbed on the table grabbed the hot wheels, stood up and started dancing). He loved to run outside (and in laps around the  house) and just loves being outside in general. He “talks” all day but only has a few words he says regularly which are “car”, “truck”, “train or choo choo”, “dog”, “cat”, “juice”, “fish”, “dada”, “ball” and a few others. He LOVES to point out cars, trucks, and trains. His favorite show is Thomas (i never thought it would be anything but Sesame Street). He can walk up and down the stairs just holding onto one of my fingers. Loves to stack everything, not the normal things like blocks but odd things like plastic baseball bats, and random items from the pantry. He has become very affectionate and loves to give hugs and kisses. He is a picky eater when it comes to sitting down and eating what we eat at dinner time but the kid LOVES fruit (any kind), cereal (any kind), grilled cheese, french fries, french toast, pancakes, we got him to eat whole grain breaded chicken fries and it was a major victory in the protein department, oh and of course his favorite sweets are M&Ms, sprinkles, and marshmallows.

He has 12 teeth that are fully in and three canines that have just broken through. He is wearing size 18 month clothes and 18-24 month pajamas, a size 4 diaper, and size 6 shoe.




Yesterday Liam and I had lunch (and dinner since Alex was running late from work) at his new table and he LOVED it! He sat the entire time and ate his whole meal.

It was beautiful yesterday (81 degrees!) so we got to set up Liam’s new water table for him to play with after dinner while Alex cut the grass (on the tractor which Liam is scared to death of). DSC02929 DSC02930  DSC02934

Oh, I'm so jealous that you have 81 degrees weather! Jordan loves to go outside too but it's still in the 40's and 50's here in Seattle! :(
