18 Months

Ridley turned 18 months on July 22nd! Can’t believe he is a year and a half old! Here is his monthly chair picture.

Here’s what he’s been up to in the last month:

*walking and practically running all over the place

*weighed in at 21.1 pounds at his well visit. Yay! Gained a solid amount since his 15 month appt. He’s still little, but he’s growing quite well!

*length was 30 inches as best we could tell with me and the nurse trying to wrestle with him to measure him. guarantee that wasn’t his length but we know he’s growing.

*head circumference 18.5 inches

*cloth diapers

*18 month clothes

*still nursing. Never dreamed I’d go this long nursing, but we are both happy doing it, so we’ll continue on. He nurses usually 4 times a day–when he wakes up, at nap time, after naptime, and at bedtime. He sleeps 13 or more hours at night. YAY!

*goes to bed around 7 or so and wakes up usually around 8 or 8:30. Takes a nap in the afternoon for 2 or 3 hours.

*will not eat baby food anymore. He’ll eat different things like chicken nuggets, rolls, different fruits, snack foods, and his absolute favorite is homemade smoothies–i put lots of fruit and some greek yogurt and then spinach and kale in the blender and he loves them! He goes into the kitchen and points to the blender and signs “more” at least once a day. HA!

*still definitely a mommy and daddy’s boy. He will not let others hold him. He has a super loud crying, runny nose, super sad fit when we try to hand him off to others (including grandparents). The only ones he’ll go to is his Sunday school teachers. 🙂

*definitely coming into his little personality more. some good, some bad. HA!

Happy 1 1/2 years baby boy! We love you!!
