So I have to say I am loving this age.. but I will also admit that I'm hating this age..
Lets start with why I love this age..
T is amazing, he is super smart, funny, cracks us up, is a boys; boy, loves being outside, loves his daddy like its going out of style, loves me too(probably more) hahah, loves his puppy's (our 3 dogs) and definitely shows them the love, loves dirt, trucks and anything that he can get his pudgy little hands on- er Mouth..
As far as why I'm hating this age- well lets see - we are entering the terrible Two's People and I will be lucky if I have any hair left on my head by the time we leave that stage.. and really I wonder why I want a 2nd kid? haha
You ready for this,
The thing that gets me and I'm sure this is true with everyone,, is he only does this with US, when he is at daycare yes he hits, bites, etc but she says he doesn't whine, throw fits etc.. ugh... Same thing when he is with John's Dad or even my Mom. They think he's an angel and I'm an idiot.. HA if they only knew!!
So thats that..
I have to take T in for his Well Check- sometime this week. I haven't made that appt. We actually have to play catch up, because I didn't do the 15 month well check or shots.. but that was planned.. so he will get those and not the 18 month ones.
Other than that- T is great, learning and sucking everything in. He says a handful of words, but i thought he would be talking more by now. I kinda threw out the book of what he "should" be doing. T has been doing things at his own pace and on his own time, so why compare and stress?? Its a waste.. So out the books went..
Lets see he says:
Puppy, Fishy, Thank you, Daddy, Mommy, vacum, broom, jew(juice), baby, shew(shoes), ook(book), I know he says more, i just can't think of them. hmmm I guess I should be more on top of that..
He eats a variety of foods which is awesome. We were at a picky stage for about 2 weeks or so..but I figured out what was going on and stopped it. and back to normal it went.
He still will not drink Milk, so we subsitute, with yogurt, cheese, cottage cheese etc. I try to trick him sometimes but he takes 2-3 sips and gets what I'm tryin to do..
We are getting him a BIG BOY Seat.. Ahemm Potty
So I will have a follow up post to this one- in the next week or so when I take him in for his well check, as well as his 18 month Photo's :0)
Happy 18 Months Old Kiddo..
