August: 18 Months Old, Officially One & a Half!! :)

I have been soaking up EVERY moment I have with this little guy as just a party of 2 during the day while I'm home before his baby sister arrives!  He's becoming even more independent, and definitely lets us know his displeasure with something with a "No Momma!"  He has been obsessed with the "ya-ya" (playgrounds) lately, going on walks, riding around with his window down looking for trucks & construction machines, and overall being such a joy to be around every day!  

Age: 18 Months
Weight/Size: 25.5 lbs
Favorite Words: Boo!, Cheese,  Puffs, Teeth, Ya-Ya, Uh-Oh, saying the Alphabet and his favorite letter "O"
Favorite Activities:  Water table in the backyard, going to the ya-ya, watching a Jake & the Neverland Pirates episode before nap/bedtime, watching the Minions on Despicable Me
Signature Moves: He started jumping up & down a few days ago which is super funny to watch because he still doesn't quite have it down
LikesMusic in his highchair during meals or in a store that he can dance to, pushing a shopping cart around a store, taking the dog for walks around the neighborhood, his stuffed animal chair "Bobby" and having play dates with other kids!
Dislikes: When Dee-Dee won't read books with us
Mommy Likes & Dislikes:  Jack kissing "the baby" in my stomach and letting "the baby" have toys, I think he will be SUCH a great older brother!  I am also loving snuggles at night before bed when we watch a short cartoon to settle him down for the night. Dislikes: There is honestly nothing I dislike about this age, I've said it before that this is my all-time favorite age!!
Sleeps: Bath around 7:30 & 8:30ish bedtime (Thanks to OR summers), 7:30am wake, naps 1-3
Changes in Mood/Behavior: I swear he understands all English now, it's SO great to communicate with him and he actually understands me- which will be really good when the baby comes in two short months I think??
Eating: Sippy cup of milk 3x/day, favorites right now are strawberries & carrots, and anything he can stab with his fork
Clothes: Still squeezing into our 12-18 clothes, the shorts & short sleeve shirts are perfect since he's slim but long so we are getting good use out of them
Looking forward to:  Painting little baby Elle's nursery this week!!  Jackson has been rolling everything in site in preparation, I can't wait to really see her room come together! :)
