Jacob - 14 months
Age: 14 months
Height: 32.5" -- just a guess, we don't go back to the pedi until 15mo.
Weight: 25.5lbs -- just a guess, we don't go back to the pedi until 15mo.
Milestones: I can tell he's starting to master skills that he's been practicing for months- he can successfully stack all the rings on his ring stacker, and he can pop up all the bugs on his bug pop-up toy. He's been babbling for quite some time, but he's starting to say some words- "mama", "dada", "da" (dog) and "duck." He's starting to get more frustrated with his lack of communication skills, so I'm trying to work with him on that. He's climbing ALL OVER EVERYTHING, and its truly terrifying. He will literally stand on window sills to get onto beds, or climb on the side chair to reach the iHome (he loves listening to music).
Sleep: He's still sleeping 11-12 hours at night (generally 8-7/8) and taking 2 naps per day. He generally takes two 1-hour naps (at 10:30 and 3). I thought he was trying to drop to 1 nap, but he's definitely not ready for that yet.
Eating: He's still drinking about 16oz of cow's milk each day, with 3 meals and 1 snack. He's a pretty good eater, and I've really enjoyed watching him try new things. Our major issue at meal times is that he doesn't want to sit still long enough- he'd rather be down running around.
Clothes size: 18 months - 2T
Diaper size: Size 5 Cruisers
Best Moment: I really enjoyed celebrating my birthday and our wedding anniversary with our little nugget this year. Celebrations have definitely changed, but I am so in love with our new life as a family.
Worst Moment: He went through another Wonder Week this month, so he was pretty clingy and fussy, but we all survived! Ha!
Favorite toy: He really loves the broom I bought him, his lawn mower and various pots/pans/utensils.
Teeth: 6 total- top 4 and bottom 2. He's working on the next bottom 2 and a few molars.
Looking forward to: We don't have anything huge planned for this month, just preparing for our upcoming vacation in early September and my sister's bridal shower in mid-September.
