Eighteen Months {Rory}

Holy cow. Rory is 18 months old today. How is he already halfway to 2 when it seems like we just celebrated his first birthday yesterday? Stop it.

He weighs 26.6 pounds and stands about 32 inches tall. He is mostly wearing 24 months or 2T size clothing but can still fit into some 18 month stuff. He is wearing a size 5 diaper and a size 5.5-6 shoe.

Here’s what I want to remember about this past month:

  • His eating habits have stayed the same. As long as he gets one good meal each day, he’s good. And I’m good with that. At least he drinks his milk.
  • He is officially down to one nap a day, at around 12:30pm. He usually sleeps for about 2 hours, sometimes 1.5 and sometimes 2.5. I don’t have to wake him up to go pick up Riley very often, which is nice. And there have been a very few instances where he hasn’t gotten a nap at all, and he’s done much better with that than expected. But I don’t plan to make that a habit; Mama needs her down time too!
  • He has 13 teeth.
  • He is still not talking very much, but he does say “mama” and “kitty” (keeee). I have also heard him say “Kate,” which is really cute. And he has started shaking his head “no” when he doesn’t want something.
  • However, despite his limited spoken vocabulary, he continues to prove that he understands. He’ll bring me his sippy if asked, he runs to his room if I ask if he’s ready to go night-night, he knows what “open” and “close” mean, he definitely knows what “milk” is, and he goes to sit by the shoe basket whenever I ask if he’s ready to go bye-bye.
  • He started sticking his belly out this month to be tickled. It is so cute.
  • He knows where he nose is.
  • He loves listening to airplanes when they fly overhead, and he’ll often stop what he’s doing and try to find them in the sky.
  • He loves animals, especially kitties and birds.
  • He loves looking at books.
  • He is walking really well and even running at times. He’s getting better and better with his balance.
  • He loves giving kisses, and we’re working on hugs. He almost always opens and closes his hands to wave bye-bye or to say night-night.
  • He is sweetness personified and Kenny and I love him so much.

One and a half!
