Here is what he is up to at 17 months:
He got a new tooth! It finally came in and he has three more trying to poke through, but have not come in yet!
He has figured out that I am "Mama" and says it all day, every day!
He is still sleeping great! 12+ hours a night. He doesn't always go right to sleep at night, but once he is a sleep he is usually good for the night.
He loves the swimming pool! He loves jumping in and going under water. He doesn't like sitting in his baby float though. He wants to be free to swim around and get out of the pool to jump back in.
He has mastered going up and down the stairs. We have the splash area at Disney to thank for that. He was up and down those stairs so many times that week! But now I don't worry about him falling face first down the stairs at home.
He can also climb up on every chair/couch/coffee table/kitchen chair/table etc... we have at home. He is always climbing up on something.
He loves his big brother! Wants to play with him and be with him all the time.
He also loves his daddy so much! When Andrew gets home from work, he screams with excitement and is so happy to see him.
But if Mama is around, I'm still the favorite!
He now weighs 21.8 lbs. and is 30.25" tall. He is still little, but very slowly gaining just a little weight. He is getting taller, so I think any weight he is gaining is going to make him taller. It's crazy, cause he eats all day long!
Speaking of eating, he is eating great! He loves Greek yogurt, watermelon, grapes, PB&J, blueberries, rice, Mac and cheese, spaghetti, any kind of crackers and cookies or cereal. He likes crunchy things. He likes lots of different veggies and ate a whole bowl of frozen veggies last week. I was getting some frozen veggies out to cook for dinner, and he wanted what I had, so I gave him some and he kept asking for more! He has started eating a little cheese, but still not a big fan of any meat. It's a good thing he gets a lot of protein from the Greek yogurt.
He is drinking a lot more milk, now that we have added the carnation instant breakfast to it. He usually drinks anywhere from 2-3 cups a day!
He is talking a lot more. He now says mama, dada, ball, doggy, cold, hot, no, thank you, more, cracker, and cookie. He also shakes his head yes to answer a question.
He also does the sign for more, eat, all done, cracker, cookie, please, milk, and poop!
He is still doing great being a part of our family! We are so blessed that God decided to add little J to our family!!
