16 months

Thursday, June 30, 2011

I guess it goes without saying that I can't believe Jack will be 16 months old this weekend.  But I just said it anyway.  Because I can't.

I figured it might be time to record some of the habits and cute things of this age.  For posterity and stuff.  You know.



Weight:  22.5 pounds.  He is little!  But, listen, the kid eats like CRAZY.  His teachers can't believe how much he eats.

Our pediatrician's sage advice was this:  "Keep feeding him.  He'll grow."  Have I mentioned that I love our pediatrician?

Words:  Mama, Mommy, Dada, Daddy, Pablo, Lucy, doggie, ball, nana (banana)

Oh, and he also says, "HI!" with great enthusiasm when he enters a room, when someone else enters the room, when we pass someone at the grocery store...  He is a one man welcoming committee.

Walking:  No.  Running is more like it.

Food:  Costco pizza, of course.  But you know, he eats everything.  He had ice cream for the first time yesterday.  Eyes.  Lighting. Up.  He also tried, and liked, Thai panang curry.  Seriously, the kid eats.

Sleep:  He sleeps like a champ.  Twelve hours a night.  He goes to bed without a fuss because he likes bed.  This might be my largest personal victory to date.  And that includes law school.  Law school is easy compared to functioning on sleep deprivation when your baby won't sleep.

Favorite Things:  Balls.  Dogs.  Yo Gabba Gabba.  Being outside.

Least Favorite Things:  Rush hour traffic.  Nose blowing.  When the parent that he wants to hang out with at that moment (gasp) leaves the room.

Best Thing Ever:  Tickle fights.  He giggles and rolls around and it is the best thing ever, for his mama.


Hope you are rich with Costco pizza and tickle fights, like we are,
Heather
