16 Month Update

Height: about 34 inches
Weight: about 24 pounds
Head Circumference: about 19 inches
Movement: You are walking up and down steps without holding on to anything. You can also jump now off of 2 feet. Your favorite thing to do is say "Get you" and be chased around the house.
Eating Habits/New Foods: You are starting to get a little picky about some foods now. I started a bad habit of letting you dip things into sauces or condiments. Now when you eat pancakes, chicken, hotdogs, foods like that you say "dip it" over and over until I give you syrup/ranch/ketchup. Your favorite food this month is noodles. Corn is your favorite vegetable and you love all types of fruit especially blueberries this month.
Sleeping Patterns: Still sleeping through the night (12 hours)...and you take one nap a day now. We took the pacifier away in the car so you rarely sleep in the car unless you are completely exhausted. You take 1 nap a day around 1ish for 1-2 hours.
Sounds/Words: You have turned into a little parrot. You literally can repeat every single word  we say. There are too many words to list. We also taught you when you get hurt, to let Mommy kiss it and you say "All better." You still love music and LOVE baby signing time. You are continuing learning signs just from the videos.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You found out you are going to have a COUSIN!!
-You went down the slide at the pool all by yourself face first.
-You got your own personal tour of a fire truck at Ralph's retirement party
-You got your first splinter and took it like a champ when I pulled it out of your foot
-You have learned to throw a temper tantrum. When you don't get what you want, you start swinging your arms trying to hit and then you go limp and fall on the floor and yell. You come by it honestly! We are working on "Using our words" when you get upset. Most fits are when you are tired.
-You can pretty much play on the playground by yourself. I still stand close just in case if you were to fall.
New Friends I've made: You celebrated Ralph's Retirement and met lots of people at the party.
Places you went/Adventures: You went to Collin's birthday party, Ralph's retirement party, and Adventure landing waterpark.
Clothes: You are in 18 month sleepers. These are your current sizes: Gymboree-12-18, Target- 12 months, Carter-12 , Old Navy/Gap- 12-18 (For pants we are up to 18-24) You are tall and skinny so most things fit but are short.
You are in a size 4 diaper.
