18 Months!! (Holy Cow!)

At 18 months Peanut:

~ weighs about 24.5 lbs
~ is about 32.2 inches long
~Is hard to keep up with...walking and running all over the place!
~Has such a funny personality. He cracks me up with his goofiness.
~Has started to say a few words, finally. He calls both me and Hubby "Mom" much to Hubby's dismay. Other words: one, Ernie, moon, Elmo, murmel murmel (from the Robert Munsch book!) and up. Very strange to see which words are important to him! And they aren't all that clear yet (beyond up and Mom)
~Eats like a champ, but it depends on his mood. He is very adept at using his fork and spoon, and drinks out of a cup now. But we still use the straw to minimize spillage when he's on the move. 

~ He's invented a bunch of different signs for everything. Popular ones are more, diaper and Big Bird.
~ Still gets into EVERYTHING. 
~ Loves bath time, and chasing Kitty. But now that he can run, Kitty is much more alert! 
~ LOVES music. He plays his ukelele, his drum set and our piano. He dances up a storm and "sings" along. He loves it when Hubby plays the guitar or when I play the piano. 
~ He is a reading machine. We spend hours a day going through books, reading them, looking at pictures and pointing out all the words we know. We have had to "lose" a few books because we just couldn't stand reading them any longer!!

I cannot believe that he is a year and a half. He has become his own little person, and it's so fun to watch him learn and explore the world. I am one lucky mama! 



  1. He's absolutely adorable and rockin' the Darth Vader shirt!

  2. Our little grandson is growing up so fast. Looking back we can't believe how much he has changed - sweet boy!! Love Grandma and Grandpa D

  3. He's getting so big. I can't wait to see him again.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! They make my day!
