It’s hard to believe our little man has gone from this…

To this…

In what feels like the blink of an eye.

He turned 18 months on December 24th

4 days after he became a big brother,

A day in the life:

  • Wakes between 6:30 and 7:30
  • Daddy feeds him breakfast around 8 and gets him dressed while Mommy feeds Davis
  • School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 ish to around 1
  • MWF we’ve been home lately, but as soon as I get the go ahead from the Dr. we are going to venture out to the gym again and fill our mornings as best we can with a newborn in tow
  • Lunch around noon
  • Nap anytime between 12:30-3:30, usually naps about 2 or 2.5 hours
  • Snack and play time after he wakes up
  • Dinner between 5-5:30
  • After dinner playtime with Daddy and Mommy both!
  • Bath
  • Bedtime is 7:30

What he’s Eating:

  • Unfortunately, he’s still riding the picky eater train
  • He likes cheese, pancakes, oatmeal, cereal bars, just about all fruits, peas, corn and black beans, mac n cheese (only the Kraft brand)
  • Sometimes he’ll eat turkey deli meat, or a chicken quesadilla, loves spaghetti (as long as it’s actual spaghetti or angel hair pasta)
  • Would live on fruit/veggie pouches and milk if we’d let him!

Things he Loves:

  • Pushing whatever toys he can all around the house
  • His sorting/stacking toys
  • Knocking things down
  • Reading books

Accomplishments/Tricks

  • Dancing
  • If you say “beep, beep, beep” (like a truck or bus does in reverse) he’ll stop what he’s doing and “back it up” (walk backwards)
  • Jumping
  • Running
  • Closing his eyes and mouth in preparation to get his face wiped after he eats
  • Sticking out his tongue

What He’s Saying:

  • Lot of baas, daas, gaas, gogs, and any multi-sylabic combination of the previous
  • Not really formulating many coherent words yet, but he sure knows what he’s saying
  • He points at and says things that we can sometimes make out, but I really can’t wait for him to start talking fluently

And one more thing:

  • He’s the best, cutest, silliest, most handsome, and greatest 18+ month old I know!
