1 year, 31 weeks old and 19 months old

Will is 83 weeks and 19 months old.  This  has been a great week.  The weather has been absolutely beautiful here in Charlotte, so we’ve been going to the park or playing in the yard almost every day!  Will loves to be outside.  Jim and I had dentist appointments Wednesday, so during my trip back, Jim and Will headed to the mall to play in the play area.  It really has been a fun week for him.  We ate out most nights this week, which is very unlike us, but fun to get out.  We ate Chick-fil-a, McDonalds, Cold Stone, Luigi’s pizza . . . I know, not our healthiest week!  🙂  Will started eating the fruit oatmeal at McDonalds. He loves it, even when I mix carrots into it.  🙂  (There has to be some vegetables in every meal.)   I bought Will 2 new bikes this week too.  He loves riding the smaller one through the house.  It will become an outside bike soon, but in the mean time, I’m letting him ride inside.  The other one is bigger, and we’re using it as a rocker right now in the back.  I also bought some sand for his sandbox and filled it up this week.  He loves to play in the sand. 

On a good note, his butt is starting to look better again.  We’ve been doing bleach baths again, and he seems to be healing nicely.  Let’s hope it is for good this time. 

On the word front . . . here are what we have thus far:  momma, dadda, daddy, hi, hello, bye-bye, dog, baby, hot, hat, flag, truck, duck, puzzle, bubble, balloon, apple, sock, and night-night.   Some are more clear than others, but using your context clues, it is very clear what he is saying.  He has really gotten into looking at his books too.  He points to the pictures that he wants you to talk about, or he’ll grab your finger and have you point to what he wants you to talk about. 🙂  He’ll even make some of the sounds, like lion, snake, elephant, giraffe, vacuum, motorcycle, and train.  At least he tries.  🙂  If he sees something he really likes, but can’t say, he’ll go “Oooh.”  Airplanes are a perfect example.  Since we live near the airport, there are always airplanes outside.  He points and yells “oooh!”

He has been doing a really good job of hanging out in his crib after naps.  Unless something wakes him up, he’s always woken up in a very good mood and likes to play, but he has been playing for almost 30 minutes in the morning and after both naps.  I think it is great!!  He has also starting throwing a lot better.  Whether it is a ball, his sippy cup, or every single thing in his crib!  Frequently when I go in his room after naps, his crib is completely empty and everything from there is thrown throughout his room.

One of the cuter things that he has started doing is when he gets really excited or happy, he does a little jig.  He moves both of his feet back and forth without really moving any direction.  It lasts for about 20 seconds and then he takes off running.  It is adorable!

  1. PLEASE get all of those curtain pulls out of his reach. Too many kids stangle/hang themselves on those things and then it’s too late.

  2. I just laughed that you put carrots in his oatmeal, you know you are weird!!!!!!! I LOVE you!
