So the months seem to be flying by now, which may be a good thing being pregnant a second time around? 16 months old marks my 5 Month mark, and secretly I'm hoping I can ride this "best trimester" wave well into the 3rd trimester like last time (fingers tightly crossed)......we've been having AMAZING weather so far in Oregon, supposedly the driest month ever on record? Which saves my life constantly being able to take Jack on morning walks up & down our hill or to the playground next to our new house : ) For Father's Day we tried the zoo for the first time with my Dad & Travis- the weather was pretty drizzly so hardly any people which was nice, but the animals were either asleep or so far away Jack seemed to lose interest fast and missed nap time which was extra fun later that day....so we'll try again maybe next year ; )
Age: 16 Months
Weight/Size: 23 lbs confirmed! 50% in weight, 75% height, 95% head size :D
Favorite Words: Da! (for truck), Da-da!!, Ma-ma!!, Dee-Dee, Yeah!, Bubbles, Boo!, Tea!
Favorite Activities: Going on morning walks outside with Mom, pushing his wheelbarrow around the upstairs, playing tug-of-war with Hunter, going to any park, climbing up anything that's made for a 2+ year old and scaring the crap out of me
Signature Moves: Besides his bouncing at the knees dance, he's picked up a new dance move of holding his hands in fists and waving his arms from side to side
Likes: "Putting on his lifejacket" at the river, running around completely naked, counting toes & fingers, his carseat in Momma's car (really???), going to Grandma's house, any animals he can see up close
Dislikes: Getting his diaper changed, splinters from the bark dust or putting on clothes
Mommy Likes & Dislikes: He started giving HUGS.....and anything bad he's done that day is completely erased from my memory. I wonder how long it'll take him to figure that out.... Dislikes: Getting splinters out of baby feet and picking up Cheerios that he throws to feed "Dee-dee"...ugggghhh
Sleeps: 8pm bedtime, 7am wake, naps 12-2 now!!
Changes in Mood/Behavior: I swear he can understand basic English, because I can ask him almost anything now and he'll nod "yes" or "no"? I'm cautious to say he's beginning to pick up "terrible two" habits, but a little more frustrated and less easy to distract these days?
Eating: Sippy cup of milk 3x/day (7am, 12ish, 5pm), loves all fruit and broccoli, and I swear he'd just drink milk all the time if we let him for every meal...
Clothes: Barely still squeezing him into his 12-18mo regular Gap play clothes...but obviously I have an entire 18-24 mos drawer ready!
Looking forward to: Our family trip to Sisters, Oregon at Eaglecrest Resort for Uncle Blake's wedding at the end of the month! It'll be Jack's first wedding, and first vacation where he can actually walk around/explore/play so we are really excited!
