18 Months...

Holden turned 18 months this Saturday...He is so much fun...but also challenging, as he is testing his boundaries, and has started whining...I am learning I am not a patient person, especially when it comes to the whining...So anyway here is what 18 months looks like to us!

:I have no idea how tall he is, as we haven't seen the Dr. since 15 months and we don't go back until 2 years...he's taller than he was...:
:He got on our scale last night and i think it said 24 lbs...which usually is a little lower than the Dr.'s:
: Definitely running now:
:Likes to hold our hands while walking:
:still 16 teeth I think, I haven't checked:

:Has eaten some meat, only fried, or bacon...nice...but still mostly flatly refuses with a wave of his hand, and a firm "Away!":
:Will eat eggs occasionally, but mostly sticks to his old faves...we eat so many avocados in our house...:
:Likes to share with mommy:
:Actually puts himself to sleep now after a quick nursing session with a "nigh, nigh mommy" and his Fisher Price Aquarium...seriously that was a GREAT shower gift...I think we've used it everyday of his life since 8 weeks!:
:Sleeps a couple hours during the day, and ALL night:-):
:Gives hugs and kisses, usually to daddy and others:-) and loves giving nose to nose kisses and "flies" (butterfly kisses):
: Is starting with simple sentences:
:Knows the color orange, and red...:
:Still LOVES books, thinks all packages contain books, and actually will put them away! This is good because he reads dozens of books a day!:
:Loves the park, is quite sad with the rain right now:
:Still is a happy guy, even if he whines a bit (we are working on it):
:Likes to "help daddy":
:wishes he lived outside I am sure of it!:

Whew, that's a lot! I am sure there is more but I can't think of more right now:-) Enjoy! We truly are enjoying this time...I am soaking it all in...all the cuddles, all the discoveries, all the newness everyday...I love it!

What a sweet little guy. I can't believe these babies are getting so old! I can still remember your first few posts on your blog when Holden was just born.
