I can’t believe my little boy is already a year and a half old! Where has the time gone?? He has had many new experiences since my last post; vacation in Mexico, time outside in the snow, visit to the ice castles, running around outside when the snow melted and the weather was warm, he got his first haircut, and so much more!
We had his 18 month pictures taken and he did really great. He is growing and learning so much.
Liam had his 18 month well baby check at the end of February. He has stayed consistent with weight gain and head growth but he shot up these last few months. He is now in the 75th percentile for height (25th at his 15 month) and measures at 33 inches. For his weight he is now 23.8 lbs which is the 48th percentile. His head size is 47 cm which is 41st percentile.
Overall Liam has remained fairly healthy other than a cold/cough here and there. He also remained healthy over mine and Joe’s battle with the flu at Christmas time. Thank goodness for that!
Liam continues to be a good sleeper for us. There are some mornings that he gets up a little earlier than we would like and there are some naps that are shorter than we would like but overall he is a great sleeper. We have kept his routine of bedtime between 7-7:30 at night and he gets up between 5:30-6:30 usually. We still don’t let him get out of bed before 6am and he will lay and/or entertain himself until we get him. He truly is such a good little guy.
Liam is repeating everything! Liam’s vocabulary continues to expand on a daily basis. Lately we have been working on numbers and colors. He knows “two” and “blue.” So we have some work to do still-haha! Some of the phrases Liam will say are “all done” and “I don’t know.” He also says “love you” and “see ya later.”
Liam is all over the place. There is no stopping him now. He is running, climbing, and standing on things he shouldn’t be. He is also quite the dancer.
Well Liam has been a good eater from the start and continues to be a good eater. He has his days where he can be picky but for the most part he can eat. He loves eating anything Joe or I am eating. The one thing that stands out that he doesn’t like is leafy greens-however he will eat spinach if it is cooked with something.
Liam now has 12 teeth! He has his four top and bottom and then 4 molars as well. He enjoys brushing his teeth which make the task pretty easy for us to accomplish -thank goodness.
Liam has become very silly. He knows when he is being funny. He also knows when he is being naughty. Liam has also become really shy lately. He is very curious and has been since day 1. He takes in everything around him and checks everything out. This kid seriously misses nothing! It is adorable watching my learn and grow.
