You are 17 Months Old! Mommy missed out on writing your 16-month old post so I’m playing catch up a bit. J
What have you been up to this month? Well, what haven’t you been up to? You are a super busy boy who is always on the go.
Some stats: You are now in size 5 diapers and your shoes are also size 5. You are in your 18 month old or 18-24 month old clothes. Your estimated weight is 26 pounds which is just about the 50th percentile for weight. Long gone are the days of 1st percentile!
Your favorite thing right now are numbers and letters. You know all your numbers 0-9 and know most of your letters too. This started with recognizing and knowing numbers 3 and 8. And from there, you quickly learned the rest of the numbers. You discover numbers and letters everywhere, especially outside.
You also enjoy puzzles and you’re really good at them! You have animal puzzles and car puzzles and your new favorite is the shapes puzzles. You know circle, square, triangle and oval!
You are talking more than ever. Some words are more distinguishable than others but for the most part, you are able to communicate with us.
Your love for hats continues! You’ve become very skilled at putting them on by yourself—sometimes 3 or 4 at a time!
You enjoy sitting in the rocker (which you can climb up on all by yourself!) and turning on the fan.
You have finally given Mommy a name: "Me-Me." Daddy's had his name "Dee" for a long while now, so Mommy's happy to have her own name too. J Speaking of Daddy, you two are quite the pair of silliness. It is so fun to see you play and be silly together.
We've limited your use of the paci. Now you only use it for naps and that's it. Not during the day and not during bedtime. You've actually done really well with this transition and we're hoping when it's time to take away the paci completely, you'll have an okay time of it.
Little man, you are the love and joy of our lives (though we could do with a little less tantrums, little mister!). We love you oh so much and are thankful each day that God has given you to us.
We love you Bubba!
Mommy and Daddy
