How Big Are You?
26lbs but not sure on the height

What’s Your Temperament?
Those darn teeth really have you fussy sometimes. The afternoons can be rough if you haven’t napped and your teeth hurt. You are still in general a very happy kiddo though.

What Are You Eating?
You still eat pretty much everything we give you. You love meat and potatoes. You started feeding yourself with a spoon a little this month. You still drink only from a straw cup and you don’t drink a cup before going to bed now.

What Are you Sporting?
18-24 month everything! 24 months especially in pjs (which means mommy needs to buy you more for summertime!)
You wear number 4 diapers at daycare and at night time. You are still rocking your cloth diapers at home at night and on the weekends.

How Are You Sleeping?
All night, every night.
You know that when we put you in your bed, it is time for bed and you put yourself to sleep.

How Big Are You?

What’s Your Temperament?
This month has been hard on you. You are cutting some teeth and they have made you fussy, snotty and whiny, especially in the afternoon. You seemed to come out of it towards last week though.

What Are You Eating?
Everything! Sometimes I wonder if you have a hollow leg! At dinner, it seems like we can never give you enough food. You also have figured out that if you don’t like something you do 1 of 2 things. You either spit the food back out gently or you throw it on the floor.

You now only drink out of your straw cups and you don’t seem to be dribbling as much out of your mouth as you used to around your birthday.

What Are you Sporting?
Still rocking your 12 month pants but only because mom doesn’t want to buy you all new pants. Everything else is either 18 months or 18-24 months.
You wear number 4 diapers at daycare and at night time. You are still rocking your cloth diapers at home at night and on the weekends.

How Are You Sleeping?
When daddy is gone, you are sleeping through the night like a champ. Sometimes you wake up but not very often. You also fall asleep on your own in your bed like a pro. The only night we had problems with you was when we put you to bed early for throwing your dinner all over the floor. You didn’t like that at all and it took you 2 hours to cry it out that night.

Birthday Party

We held the little man’s birthday party at our house on the Saturday before his birthday. We had 18 people here for the day. We had Grandma, Grandpa, Granny, Grandpa. Uncle Andrew, Allie, Uncle Daniel, Great- Grandpa, Brandon, the Owen’s,and the three of us. It was a lot of fun!

We had all of the G-man’s favorite foods for lunch and then leftover pizza for dinner! (Yes, 2 meals!) Chicken, applesauce, bananas, berries, french fries, and cheerios were on the menu. The only fancy thing we had was a cheese and meat tray with nuts and fruit.

When it came to the cake, once you got the hang of it, you loved it! I think you ate the whole engine part of your cake!

You got lots of new clothes, books and a Radio Flyer trike. You loved all of it and you have figured out how to stack your cups like a pro.

Here are just a few of photos from the day.

Quick Trip

Right before we celebrated he big birthday, we squeezed in a quick trip to the midwest. It was an experience and of course someone decided to make it more fun by getting sick. We think he was just run down and tired but he rebounded nicely for the family to arrive for his birthday.

Tubes!

Finally, after months of having ear infections and tons of antibiotics, G was able to get tubes in his ears. The night before we let him stay up late. We played trains and watched basketball. He didn’t quite understand why he was getting to stay up so late but it seemed to help the next morning with his surgery. He was a champ and they are helping a ton!UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitled
