Wilson-- 18 months

My baby is officially a toddler now. I cannot believe we are somehow on the downward slope to TWO. what? How? When???

I have no idea how much Wilson weighs or how tall he is. I can tell he is getting tall and lanky. No more chunky baby fat.

He is wearing 18/24 month pants and 2t/3t shirts. Diapers are still 5s.

Wilson usually wakes up between 8:30 and 9:30 and goes to bed around 9-9:30 every night. He takes a 2-3 hour nap everyday around 1:30. He has been going down for bed time and naps really well recently.

He is still eating tons. 3 meals and a snack or two everyday. I've started letting him eat on the couch some instead of his high hair, and he eats so much better if he can just graze. His favorite foods are veggie bacon, broccoli, green beans, cheese, raisins, any fruit, and anything covered in mustard or ketchup.

Wilson took forever to start "talking" but he had been picking up words left and right in the past few weeks. In just the last week he has learned "ball" "no" "night night" and "I did it". He can say mom and dad but he just doesn't very often. I'm really not worried about it. I know he understands 95% of what I say to him and he "talks" a lot, I just don't know what he is saying.

Books are a big deal around here. We have started putting a book or two in bed with him at night and I wake up hearing him "reading" in the mornings. He knows every animal sound I can think of so animal books are his favorite. He has also become aware of letters. Every letter he sees in a book, on tv, on a t shirt, anywhere, he gets excited and points and says "B! B!"  Every letter is B right now.

Daniel Tiger and Sesame Street are his favorite shows. He will watch anything on PBS kids, except Thomas the Train. We both hate that show.

I dont really know how to describe it, but I can just see Wilson growing and learning every day. He is just so funny and such a joy to be around. He can throw a good tantrum, but he is mostly so silly and full of energy. He is the best little boy. Really.
