18 Months Old!

29 Apr

Today Linden is 18 months old. It is crazy to think that on this day last year he was only 6 months! I am amazed by him everyday. He is constantly saying new words, doing new things and getting into more mischief any chance he can. He is OBSESSED with Curious George, any form of motor vehicle, especially cars and he adores fish and recently fell in love with Nemo.

As of today he has his 8 front teeth and finally broke 3 of his 4 first molars. His favorite foods are bananas but enjoys just about anything else! We have been blessed with a boy who is not a picky eater and is actually developing quite the palate! About a month ago when his first molar broke through we finally introduced grains into his diet. So far he loves them but they are still not a main course in his daily diet, except while on vacation!


At his 18 month appointment this morning he weighed 26lbs 9oz (79.13%). His height was 32.75″ (61.78%) and his head circumference was 18.9″ (66.01%). These percentages are based on the WHO chart. These numbers are such a blessing compared to his early numbers before his tongue tie was discovered and clipped. He hovered around 1-5% and had everyone worried for a few months. We almost forgot to ask to see the graph this morning since it is no longer a burden on our hearts.

Within the next few months we hope to put a stronger emphasis on potty training while it is nice outside and we can do a lot of naked time. We are also hoping to get pregnant in about a month so Lord willing, he will be a big brother early next year.

Right now we are dealing with the more frequent tantrums and melt downs and intense molar discomfort but despite those “growing pains”, life is good. He sleeps a good 12 hours at night and usually a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon. We are loving our routine but know that soon it will get shaken up. It has been an amazing 18 months and I look forward to many more milestones and new experiences with this sweet boy !
