So...this is super late. But he did just have his 18 month check-up the other day, so it's cool, right?
So, he's still lingering around 25 pounds and wears 24 month clothes and size 5.5 or 6 shoes. Since he potty trained this month all his pants fall off though, haha.
We didn't go to any classes this month because my back was so messed up and the act of pulling him out of the car seat was damn near excruciating for me, but we played outside behind our house a lot to make up for it and he made lots of trips to the parks around base with The Sailor.
At the beginning of the month we had some pretty miserable teething days, but no molars actually popped through! So frustrating! But he enjoyed getting mini ice cream cones to help deal with the pain.
In other eating news, he has started to prefer using a fork and having a plate (as opposed to eating with his hands right off his tray). I think this is another factor making him feel more "grown up."
With all the trips to the playgrounds with The Sailor he has mastered going down the slide by himself - backwards. And he could do this for hours. He loves climbing up and sliding down and climbing up and sliding down. I actually think The Sailor gets more nervous watching him then I do, which is funny to me.
And he's getting much better at coloring! Instead of just eating crayons he actually doodles quite a bit!
At the very end of the month we got rid of his crib. It was not a fun transition, but I couldn't bend over any further to get him out because of my belly/back and he was almost able to climb out. Those first few nights he would wake up, run to his door and start pathetically calling out "Moooooommmmmyyyyyyy" but if I went in to comfort him he would completely melt down and take hours to get back to sleep. It eventually got better, but that wasn't until his next month so I'll leave that for our next update which is due in like a week, lol.
Does anyone else find it super hard to keep up with these updates? But I totally wish I had more of them to document his milestones and personality from when he was an infant so I'm really trying to keep up...
