Jacob - 18 months

I realize I say this every month, but HOW ON EARTH IS MY BABY 18 MONTHS OLD?! A year and a half! Holy geebus!

Age: 18 months
Height: 34.5" (97%)
Weight: 30lbs (97%)
Milestones: He's really starting to talk more, although most of what he says is indecipherable, he babbles ALL the time and he really acts like he knows what he's talking about. He understands most of what we say, and follows instructions (i.e. "throw this away", "go get your milk", "where's Boo?". He's also learning animal names/sounds, shapes and colors, and just day-to-day stuff. I love hearing him talk, it's just too cute! He's catching on to different sports really well now- he loves golfing (uses his golf clubs and actually hits balls around the room), playing soccer (will kick the ball), shooting hoops, and throws a baseball pretty well. I know Josh is so excited about this aspect of his growth (as am I, of course).
Sleep: I'm not sure what the heck is going on with him, he's been waking up early lately (7am or earlier) and taking morning naps. So not like him. The other day he woke up at 6:30am and took two 2-hour naps! Crazy! But in general, he sleeps 12 hours at night and 1.5-2 hours during the day.
Eating: Mealtime is still my least favorite time of the day. He's just all over the place. One day he LOVES oranges, and the next day I can't get him to eat a single bite of orange. It makes meals kinda stressful!
Clothes size: 18-24mo in Old Navy and Gap, but otherwise he's in 24mo or 2T.
Diaper size: Size 5 Cruisers
Teeth: He finallllllyyyyy cut 3 of his 4 molars! So he has 11 total teeth.
Best Moment: Thanksgiving was infinitely better this year. Having a kid makes holidays a billion times better. He actually ate Thanksgiving dinner with us and had a blast! We also put up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, and seeing the look on his face when he saw the tree for the first time...ahhh...I'll never forget that! It might trump the ongoing ornament battle we're currently facing. Ack!
Worst Moment: No bad moments.
Favorite toy: He still loves his lawn mower. He also just got the Little People nativity set and Santa's sleigh set, and he's loooving those! As I mentioned earlier, he also loves all his sports- golf clubs, soccer ball, basketball and baseball.
Looking forward to: Christmas. For sure.
