Liam - 16 Months


You love glasses and hats.

You got your second haircut. Mimi gave you your first haircut.
You also had your first sucker!

So grown up!

Highlights: You are talking more each week! We can't get enough of your fun personality.

Weight: I don't know... If I were to guess, I would say you are around 27 to 28 pounds. You're a big guy.

Height: Not sure. 32 or 33 inches??

Hair: Blonde in the front and darker in the back. It's still pretty light.

Teeth: You have 5 teeth. :) You definitely have the Juns teeth. Most 16 month babies have a lot more, but we've heard when they come in slower you'll have fewer problems.

Eyes: True BLUE.

Clothes: 2T shirts and 2T pants.

Eating: You love eggs, blueberries, noodles, fruit snacks on occasion, chicken, hot dogs, cheese, bread and green smoothies.

You love Annie's cheddar bunnies and the yogurt snacks in your snack trap.

I give you a 10 ounce bottle of whole milk after breakfast and another one an hour before bed.

Sleeping: I've been trying to keep you to a bedtime of 8 or 8:30 depending on the night. The night before your Auntie Meg left, we knew you were going to have a late night. You ended up staying up till 11 p.m. that night. You did great though! We could tell you were tired, but you weren't cranky.

You usually sleep 10 to 12 hours a night. Every once in a while you will wake up in the middle of the night, and I'll give you a bottle and rock you to sleep. You might wake up in the night once or twice in a month. You're still an awesome sleeper!

Milestones: You are saying: Mama, Dada, Hi, Buh Bye, All Done, Oh shoo (Oh shoot), cockka (chicken), NO, gentle and LOTS of baby talk.

I'm wanting to teach you to say... Love you and Oh geeze.

You give high fives now! I want to teach you to do thumbs up soon.

You wave hi and goodbye to everyone. It's adorable.

You give open mouth kisses, and we crack up laughing each time.

You have been walking since 11.5 months, and I feel like you are getting good at running. We have to watch you closely when we are outside.

Likes: You love toting around your snack trap and your bottle. You love your leaptop (baby laptop), your scooter (I like to call it your scooty), bouncy balls, and hats. You love your baby fedora hats.

I can't forget to mention, you LOVE to be outside and explore.

You also love the fun group we go to on Tuesday's. Last summer, you weren't walking so you seemed a lot younger than the other babies in the group, but now that you are doing more of the same things, I don't notice the age difference as much. 

Dislikes: You are getting better about your car seat, but you're still not a huge fan.

We are working on sharing toys with others. :)

Outings: Let's see... We have been going to our play group, playing in our backyard, having dinner with Juns family on Monday nights, helping Mimi clean up things outside, playing at parks and hanging out in the jogging stroller while mom and dad run.

For the past week or so, we have had crummy weather so we haven't been outside lately. I cannot wait to spend more time outside. You love visiting the animals and running over to Auntie Tracie's house when you hear the kids playing.
