18 Months Old

Well, William had his 18 month Vaccinations yesterday and he was really not happy with me at all considering everything he's been through the last couple of days. They give the 18 months needles (2) in the arm now, not the leg and it's just not as beefy up there.

All that to say is that he weighed in at 29 pounds and 33 inches. He is officially ON the chart now in the 75 percentile. He's always been off the charts for his head, height and weight. I was so surprised that he didn't weigh more than that, as he just seemed to be so heavy lately. But I can totally tell that he's thinning out do to all the moving around and his appetite has actually come down a bit. In 6 months he has grown 2 and 3/4 inches and has gained 2 pounds. He's growing so fast. He also has 20 teeth! (yes, I said 20)

At 18 months:
-he can put a couple words together now and has lots of new words.
-can understand and follow directions
-can finally walk, stand and sit without my help
-dances when he hears music
-blows kisses and gives kisses
-loves to play with other kids
-shakes his head no when he doesn't want something
-says "this, this" and points to stuff that he wants
-is still screaming when he doesn't get what he wants :o(
-is very sensitive

I'm loving this stage and loving watching him change and explore. FUN!
