Mommy Mondays: 22 months

Weight: 28lbs 3oz (+ 20 lbs, 13 oz) - left over from two months ago
Height: 33" (+ 13")
Head: 19" (+ 5.65")

Sleep: Other than the waking up early, I can't complain.  He goes down easy for naps and bedtime, and sleeps the whole night through.

Eating: We are in the watermelon phase of summer where I feel like I'm constantly chopping up watermelon so we have a bowl in the fridge at toddler level.  He loves it.  He's been eating lighter this month - not as much, so I've been packing him smaller lunches for school.  Of course, as soon as I pick him up, he eats everything he didn't finish during the day.  So maybe it's more about distraction.  In more important news - Thatbaby is officially done nursing!

Best Moment: Our "train day."  He was so excited to ride the trains and see the trains at the museum.  I think he would have stayed there forever if I'd let them.

Monthly Wisdom:  Kids don't know the difference between "toy" and "not toy" so when you think your kid is getting bored, pull out something new for them - this month we blew up my exercise ball and Thatbaby has been having a blast rolling it, carrying it, sitting on it (with assistance), and bouncing on it (with assistance). 

Goals for the Upcoming Month:
- Still the babysitter. But we've started the process!
- Roadtrip!
- Camping with a baby.

Things Thatbaby is doing:
-  He's added "Your Welcome" into his please and thank you vocabulary.  Like thank you at first, we're not at the consistent stage yet, but it's adorable when he uses it.
- He is Mr. Bossy Pants lately.  "Sit here" "Thatdog shhhh" "Mommy arm."  We've had to institute "no bossy" into his vocabulary.
- He can open the fridge by himself.  Which means I have to hide berries in drawers but he can get his own milk.
- He loves to do everything himself "Thatbaby do it"  "Thatbaby hold it"
- He looks for people/things:  "Daddy aaarrrrreee you?"  (Daddy where are you?"
- He brings his stuffed animals to the table so they can eat (and drink) too.  He feeds them.
- He drinks "tea."  Jealous that Thatboy and I start the day with coffee and tea respectively, he wants in.  So I pour him some water in a little ceramic 1/2 cup measuring cup and he uses two hands to drink it.
- He takes "BEEG BITES" of his food.
- He's starting to develop a memory, so if you ask what he did, he just might tell you!

  4. Ah! What a great age. I can't wait till little Lucy gets there! And I think camping with a baby would be such an adventure. I can't wait to hear about it when it happens. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Growing bigger everyday....Gosh, before you know it he will be driving (smile).
