18 months!

A.J. turned 18 months on Christmas Eve! Today we went to the doctor for his 18 month well check. He is healthy as can be! He weight was 22 lbs. It was 23 but little guy hasn't wanted to eat much! And his height is 33 inches long! He is charting at 5-10% for weight and 50-75% for height. Tall and skinny. : )

At 18 months A.J. says 20 plus words on a daily basis. He has 5 signs he uses now as well. Most of the time he will say the word with the sign. He will mimic everything you say! He understands so much!

He insist on eating in a big chair with a fork and spoon and cup most of the time. He LOVES his dogs! He helps feed them. He enjoys playing ball and driving cars and trains around his train table. His favorite book was They Belly Button book for a long time but just this week his new favorite is Moo Baa La La La! He loves books so much and would be happy if you read to him the entire day. His favorite song is Old McDonald had a Farm. He knows many animal songs and sings e-i-e-i-o!

He is super clingy with his mama! He will ask me to hold him and call himself a baby! The baby thing started when he didn't like me holding my great nieces. He makes the biggest messes I have ever seen at lunch and dinner. But he will help you clean up! ( He will mean well even if he is just making it worse).

We love this boy so much!
