I Instead of taking Ethan to the doctor tomorrow for his 18 month appointment, we went today for a fever & cough. He has a sinus infection and is on antibiotics again. Joy! We went ahead and did everything except his vaccines today. He will get those when he is finished with the antibiotics!
Here are his stats for 18 months:
Height: 35.5in (>95%!)
Weight: 28lbs 2oz (85-90%)
Head Circumference: 51cm (>95% Huge!)
He is walking, running, talking, laughing, and generally having a grand time! He is such a joy right now. He is starting to have more "toddler moments" & I think the terrible two's are approaching a little early.
He loves saying & waving hi & bye bye. To everyone! It is really cute. Since he got his tubes in his ears, his speech has really started taking off!
Ethan's list of words includes:
Abbie (in-laws puppy)
Puppy (or sometimes pup-pup)
Not a word, but he loves to say "mmmmm" when he is hungry or sees food. Imagine this times 1,000 when we are at the grocery store!
Diaper (we can understand it as that)
He loves to give & blow kisses. Whenever we say "I love you" he responds by giving kisses :) It melts my heart! He definitely understands what we say to him and ask of him. He responds appropriately with yes or no answers and/or head shaking. When I say it's time to change his diaper, he goes to his room. Time for a bath, straight to the bathroom. Time to eat, straight to the highchair. If he sees any signs of us leaving (clothes, shoes, purse, or coat) he RUNS to the door "Bye bye bye bye" and gets very antsy until we leave!
He knows where his eyes, nose, ears, mouth, belly, feet, & head are!
He has 7 teeth (4 on top, 3 on bottom). I think he is working on getting a molar on the bottom left side.
He is in size 5 diapers. Size 24 month sleepers. Some 18 month shirts but mostly 24month clothes due to his height.
We will take his 18 month pictures tomorrow & I'll post them then
If you can take a moment to wish us luck....we put an offer on a house last night and we hope we get it! It is bank-owned and it is a fantastic deal. Brand new & over 2,000 square feet. We love it and really hope we get it. We may not hear back for a week or two, so I have to learn patience!!!
