Our little guy is 19-months-old. We’re now closer to two years old, versus one-year-old.
He is putting words together, which I thought wouldn’t happen so soon. He says thinks like, “eat food” and “where’s Chloe (or insert pet’s name here.)” He tells us “I wash” when he wants to wash his hands. He has started saying “please” and “sorry” and copies so many other words.
He’s around 23 pounds. He’s definitely average size (between 25th and 50th percentile.) We don’t mind, though. We don’t want him to grow too fast!
His sleep has been better the past few weeks. We sleep trained one night and that’s all it took to get him to sleep. (Though, as I type, he’s still in his crib talking. Not sleeping. At least he isn’t screaming, though.)
He loves Elmo. He’d eat, sleep, breathe Elmo if we let him. He loves the books, loves the stuffed animals, the plastic figures and is a fan of watching Sesame Street, when we allow him to watch television.
He’s quite a picky eater these days. When he’ll try new things, we jump at the opportunity to introduce new vegetables or fruits. He tends to snack in the afternoons after his nap, and that can ruin dinner, so I’m trying to limit his snacks to only healthy items like fruit or cheese.
He LOVES Chloe. And Sophie! He is such a fan of animals. His loveys include a monkey which he refers to as “nonkey” and it’s super cute.
He still “only” has 18 teeth, but we’re waiting for the two-year molars to pop through any time. (He teeths early, so this wouldn’t be a shock to us.)
We’re starting to introduce him to potty training. Sounds early, I know, but the doctor and his babysitter have even noticed the signs that he’s almost ready. He tells us when he’s done something, or when he’s about to. He is so aware (and I’m not quite ready to do potty training.)
With every month, he is becoming more and more fun.
