Sweet Sixteen

Happy Sweet Sixteen (months) Buggy! 

My, how time flies when we are having fun.

Weight: 25-26 lbs (he stepped on the scale at home)
Length: He's been too active for me to measure :)
  • Just got his third bottom tooth for a grand total of seven teeth. 
  • Still no molars. 
  • Is currently drooling up a storm so we may see more soon.

  • Still has two naps during the day that last anywhere from one to three hours
  • Sleeps from 8:00 P.M. to 7:00 A.M 
  • Loves falling asleep with a sippy cup of milk, a soft blanket, and his Elmo.

  • C has seemed to slow down in his eating. 
  • Still willing to try new foods, even if he doesn't finish a complete bite if he doesn't like it. 
  • Tends to throw more food on the floor than put in his mouth. 
  • Loves hot dogs, cheese puffs, apples, bananas, Gerber Graduate Meals, grilled cheese, and chicken nuggets.
  • Doesn't care for anything too sweet, apple juice, quesadillas, peanut butter, and pineapple. 

  • C is sort of a quiet baby(unless he misses a nap). 
  • He babbles and grunts, but he's more content being the observer. 
  • Can now say Mama, Dada, D's name, all done, and uh oh. 
  • He's currently working on ba (ball), uh (up),  mo (more). 

  • The word no. Caiden now understands what that word means.I'm trying to do better at redirecting him but I can't help but admit he's pretty cute when he throws his "mini tantrums". D has taught him a few tricks in that area. 

  • C also dislikes being inside on a nice day (he'll pound on the door till you open it), 

  • socks (he's my boy) 

  • C loves to be outside. If I'd let him skip meals and naps then he would spend all day outside. His favorite things are playing ball and riding in his car. 

  • C also loves to climb. He has turned into quite the monkey and his favorite is to climb on top of our glass kitchen table and the fireplace.

  • C loves to be with D. Even if they are fighting over toys, it's not to long before they've made each other dissolve into giggles. It's really quite amusing to watch. 

New things: 
  • C is getting better at using his big boy utensils. He'd rather use a fork or spoon than his fingers, a cup rather than a sippy cup, and a plate rather than his high chair tray. 

  • He has also learned the fine art of running. I can't believe how fast he has gotten! Sometimes, he likes to run with his hands clasped behind his back and his butt sticking out so he sort of looks like a chicken. 

  • C loves to sit on the potty. I think he might be potty trained before D is.

  • The other day, C discovered the world of drawing. He loves to sit with the Magna Doodle and just scribble. 

My Darling Boy, I am so happy to be your mommy.
