Jacob - 19 months

Another month, come and gone. I commented to Josh how looking back, a year and a half is really nothing. Look how much he's grown and changed! It's almost hard to remember those sleepless nights. Almost. ;)

Let's get on with it. 

Age: 19 months
Height: we don't go back until he's 2!
Weight: we don't go back until he's 2!
Milestones: Jacob is a full-blown KID now. He's running, climbing, throwing, etc. He just goes, goes, goes. His newest trick is dragging his playtable chairs into the kitchen to "help" me cook. In reality, he's just forced me to babyproof my counters. Ack! He's talking better, but still not a lot and definitely not in sentences or even 3-word phrases. He KNOWS a lot of words though, because he can point to all his body parts, point out animals in books, point out all his food, etc. I'm expecting him to just start talking one day, and never stop. And for that reason alone, I'm ok with his current communication status.
Sleep: His sleep has kinda been all over the place. Well, his nighttime sleep is still very consistent. He goes to bed around 7:45pm and sleeps until 8am, sometimes 9am. Naptime is a different situation. When Josh is home, like on the weekends, he normally takes 2 naps. I honestly don't understand this. Maybe with 2 people playing with him, he gets tired faster? No clue. During the week, though, he usually takes 1 afternoon nap, anywhere from 1-2 hours.
Eating: I still haaaaate mealtime. He eats 3 meals and 1 snack, but lately I've been letting him graze throughout the day and its not quite as stressful.
Clothes size: 2T
Diaper size: Size 5 Cruisers
Teeth: 11 total
Best Moment: Christmas. Hands-down the best holiday ever! We had sooo much fun! I'm already getting excited about next Christmas because it will be even better.
Worst Moment: Can't really think of anything??
Favorite toy: Now that we have all new toys, he's playing with new stuff. He looooves his kitchen and all the pots/pans. He just moves them all around and pretends to "cook" stuff. It's super cute. He also loves his Thomas from his Coco, and his basketball hoop. He really likes playing with it all. He also really loves his toy Fire Truck and Dump Truck.
Looking forward to: Our baby-free vacation coming up. Is that bad? :)
