17 months....


Chompy is getting soooooo big!

As he turns 17 months, here's what he's doing:

New words: teeth, trees, bubbles, truck, ear

Animal Sounds he'll say: moo, baa, quack, oooo (monkey)

New signs: help

New body parts: ears, teeth, toes, feet

He still loves his trucks and balls and books.

He will slide all day long.

He loves to help put trash in the can, and dishes in the sink.

He does not like being told no, and we are working hard on sharing with our friends. Sadly, this work includes reinforcing that pushing and pinching are not okay activities.

He has six teeth that are fully in and four molars in process.

He still loves dancing and will have a dance party anytime.

He is still inching towards trying more foods. We have had little steps this month and just need to keep introducing him to new things.

He is a love, smiling and chattering to anyone within hearing distance.

He continues to mostly sleep through the night, although we've needed to do night-time milk for the last couple of weeks. Luckily, he just needs his diaper changed, eat and then will go back down to bed. He's sleeping in later now as well---as in between 6-7am. But that's a far cry from the 5am we used to get. Hopefully the time change this week won't screw him up too badly.

He recognizes momma and daddy in pictures and will point them out.

He loves being with his friends, and continues to enjoy his "school".
