Gabe: 18 Months

Age: 18 months

Weight/Length: 34lb/ 34 1/2 inches long [these are measurements from home; his 18 month check-up is November 22nd] so he is in the 99+ percentile! Such a big boy!

Size: He is in some 2t clothes, but mostly 3t clothes :( Where did my BABY go???

Teeth: He has 12. Just got all of his first molars in at the same time. His cuspids are trying to come in right now.

Sleeping: He's a champ when it comes to sleeping. He usually goes to bed around 11:15pm and wakes up around 11:00 am. At daycare he takes a 1 1/2 hour nap and on our days off he takes around a 3-4 hour nap.

Eating: He still loves his milk and prefers that to anything else. He will drink non-concentrate/no sugar added juice with water. His favorite meals are just like his momma! He loves spaghetti, pizza, chili, and sloppy joes. He also LOVES chicken nuggets. He really isn't too picky... except for veggies. He will eat pureed veggies, but not whole ones. Don't know how to get past that. 

Movement: Walking, running, crawling, climbing....NONSTOP movement!

Milestones: He's using the big boy potty chair. Not everytime--but quite a bit. He's even gone a whole night without peeing in his diaper and goes potty on the chair. We are super excited about this. We want him to be potty trained by the time our second is here. And we still have 6 months to go so that's a plus.

Favorite Toys: Tigger. He never goes anywhere without Tigger--including to stores, the bathroom, bed, daycare, to eat... literally everywhere.

Dislikes: Getting something taken away from him. If he gets into trouble he usually will hit or scream at one of us...then throw a huge tantrum and make a huge production out of it. Quite annoying and humorous at the same time.

He is doing so great with talking. I was starting to get worried, but it seems like as soon as he hit his 18 month mark, even though he will be delayed a little due to his tongue tie not getting noticed until 14 months, he is learning new words daily. The words he repeats include: Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle; momma; dadda; hiya; uh oh; oh dear; no; elmo; Tigger; baba; ball. He's also said a few times, but not constantly: doggie; granpa; thank you; your welcome..
