18 months

We are loving 18 months!  It just gets better and better!

Stats:
Nicknames: Flynny, buggy, bug, buddy, buggarat.
Weight/Height: 19 pounds(1st percentile); 29.5 inches (<1st percentile)  (HC is 56th percentile)
Hair: rat tail!  and no, I’m never cutting it!

Eye color: blue.  May be my imagination but I think they’re getting a little more grey, a little more like dad’s eyes.
Who does he look like? ME!
Clothing: 18 months.  Pants are a little long.  We officially wear shoes now with walking and he just graduated to a size 4.
Diapers: 3s
Favorite Toys: remotes, phones, loves putting objects in containers.
Crib or Parents’ Room: crib

Sleep: decent!  Some mornings he gives us a wake up call at 5 or so but after a paci insert he usually goes back to sleep until 6:30.

Naps: 2. First one ~10-12. Second one ~3-5. Can last anywhere from 30 min to 2 hours+ and he’s happiest when they’re both around 1.5-2 hours.  Fighting that second nap so hard!  I heard the first nap to drop is the morning nap but he consistently easily falls asleep for that nap.

Teeth: 8. 4 on top, 4 on the bottom.

Sounds/Words: not much in the way of actual words but he blabbers and speaks gibberish.  He points and says “Ah!” whenever he wants something. He knows a lot of words – more than we even realize sometimes as when we’re talking to each other sometimes he points at something we’ve just said.

Favorite foods: blueberries, scrambled eggs, crackers, cheese, apple sauce and bread. I’m feeling the mom guilt hard about the lack of veggies.  He will eat green beans, mushrooms and other random veggies but he’s just inconsistent.  He slurps noodles up just like dad!
New Discoveries/Milestones:

Spins in circles while standing.

Can forward roll (he’s been able to since Christmas but because of his head size it ends up being a sideways roll)

Can go down the entire stairs backwards safely.

No more crawling.

Running!  And falling!

Signs “more”

Loves pointing, clapping and waving

Gives high fives

Started to blow kisses but not consistent yet

 

We are going to set Flynn up with a speech therapist to get an evaluation.  The pediatrician agreed it is time to get him checked out.  I’m less worried lately since his receptive word bank has grows so much in the last few months.
