I wanted to post this about 3 weeks ago...but, now that I'm so late there is so much more to say!
I can't believe H is already a year and half old, he is just so big! He is fully a toddler now and doing things I didn't know he could EVERY day. Here are the highlights of 18 months:
weight: 26.5 lbs
height: 34.5 inches, he is almost 3 feet tall!
shoe size: 7 wide! kid has monster feet!
New words: He can now answer yes, no questions with a "yeah", "noooo". Right now he says yeah more than no. He just started making fish faces when you ask him what fish says and says "ohhh ohhh eeee eeee" when you ask him what a monkey says. He says "ooowwww" for what a kitty says. He loves watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the mornings and will yell "Oh Toodles!" with Mickey. He also started saying "Oh Dear", and "Let's Go!" He's getting to be a pretty good mimicker and started calling Grandpa by his first name, saying "Hi Jon". He starting calling his lovely, "mammy" instead of lamby. He also started sharing his juice and snacks with lamby and pretending to feed him.
He's getting so good at putting things together, stacking and using his pincher fingers
He also wants to help with EVERYTHING
He likes to cuddle on my lap and watch Elmo's World or Thomas the Train. He is starting to understand the humor in some of the kids shows and laughs when they do something funny.
We also had our first emergency room visit this month when H swallowed part of a wood chip at daycare and it got stuck way in the back of his throat. He is fine, we just had to see a few doctors and wait for several hours for them to get it out and confirm that he didn't have anything else in his lungs. The next day he was back to his normal self. I have a feeling that won't be our last trip to the ER. H is so adventurous and has already figured out how to climb up on all the beds by himself! He wants to jump SO bad, he's just not quite there yet, maybe next month.
