18 Month Update

Height: 35 inches...97%
Weight: 25 pounds...55%
Head Circumference: 19 inches...90%
Movement: I think it is time to get rid of this category. You are running, skipping, climbing, pretty much everything. We are still working on jumping off of both feet together, but other than that your movement is wild and crazy!
Eating Habits/New Foods: You are getting back to your normal self as far as food goes. Maybe you weren't eating well because you were sick. You are loving chicken nuggets, edamame, smoothies, cereal, all fruit, brocolli, applesauce packets (which are really a variety of fruits and vegetables mixed together, candy, chocolate, hotdogs, and our all time favorite corn.
Sleeping Patterns: You are no longer falling out of your bed and are sleeping great. Usually 8:30 pm - 8:30 am. The time change has messed you up a little bit. You are getting up around 7:30 or 8 but hopefully you will adjust soon. You take one nap a day in between 12 and 2 and you sleep for 1-2 hours. You are the easiest ever to put down. You say night night, go find your paci, and lay in bed.
Sounds/Words: Still talking up a storm. Everyone always says how surprised they are you talk so well at only 18 months. You are beginning to talk in short sentences. Your favorites are Dada's working and Emily wake up!  Music is still your fave and you are able to sing the tune to a lot of songs. You sing the first verse, hum the next ones, and finish singing the last verse. New songs are the abc song, happy birthday song (especially to Mama) and you can now count to 10!
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You are no longer falling out of your bed and sleeping again through the night
-You somehow chipped your front tooth, but it is not bad at all. I didn't even notice until Dr. Mary pointed it out.
-You can sing "Happy birthday Mama" and blow out the candles
-You went trick or treating for the first time and LOVED it!
-You dressed up as Minnie Mouse for Halloween
-You played in a huge trough of dried corn, fed cows, and stood on hay bales at the corn maze
-You spent 4 days away from Mommy and Daddy while we were in San Francisco.
New Friends I've made: No specific new friends, you went trick or treating with Collins and some of her friends, and we ran into Dean Bean that night.
Places you went/Adventures: You went to the corn maze in Hilliard, couples supper club at Ashley and Carlton's, the San Juan del Rio fall festival and rode on a few rides by yourself, and celebrated Halloween with some trick or treating.
Clothes: You are in 2T sleepers. These are your current sizes: Gymboree-18-24, Target- 18 months, Carter-18 , Old Navy/Gap- 18-24 (For pants we are up to 24 month)
You are in a size 4 diaper.
