Jacob - 22 months

Age: 22 months
Height: we don't go back until he's 2!
Weight: we don't go back until he's 2!
Milestones: Jacob's vocabulary and communication has really improved by leaps and bounds this past month. It's actually pretty incredible! He repeats everything, so we can now actually start learning our numbers and alphabet. He doesn't say it on his own, but he'll repeat "ABC" or "123." He's also been "singing" into his broom and dancing around- it's one of the cutest things I've ever seen! He looooves Justin Bieber's "Baby"; I used to sing that to him when he was a itty bitty baby, so I wonder if he remembers it?? We also started swim lessons this past month and he's really come around in the water. At first, he didn't really like it, but now he's really having fun. He's learning water safety (how to grab the pool edge and move side to side, and how to pull himself out), how to jump into the water, and how to hold his breath underwater (each week we increase the length of time by 1 second- he's up to 4 seconds!).
Sleep: Still really good! He still sleeps 11-12 hours straight at night (usually 8pm-7/8am), hardly ever waking up in the middle of the night and when he does we just let him work it out himself. He naps for 1-2 hours each afternoon, starting around 1pm.
Eating: He's been eating better lately. I let him graze at breakfast and lunch, which is really working well for us! I've heard that its not recommended because they can choke or they get used to not sitting and eating, but we honestly haven't had either of these issues. On the weekends, we will occasionally eat breakfast/lunch at the table as a family and he joins us just fine! I do, however, make him sit at the dinner table for dinner with the family every single night.
Clothes size: some 2T, but starting to buy warmer weather clothes in 3T!
Diaper size: Size 5 Cruisers
Teeth: 12 total, and I think his canines are starting to move now.
Favorite toy: Still really loving all his trucks and being outside. He's also starting to show interest in movies, which I'm so excited about! I hate him watching TV, but feel like movies are a little more acceptable. He loves Cars, Toy Story and Monsters Inc.
Personality (I'm adding this one this month): Jacob has the sweetest personality! He's so kind and affectionate, but he's still soo boy! He shows caution, especially when doing things he's already done before (and he knows it can/did hurt him), but when he's doing something for the first time- he's ALL about it! He runs and falls alllll the time. He currently has 2 skinned knees. Ugh! If he accidentaly hits me, and he sees that I'm in pain, he quickly comes to my aid and gives me a huge hug and kiss. He also looooooves his dogs, and is constantly giving them hugs and kisses. Although that doesn't stop him from chasing them around the house, too. He's also a total goof, and loves to make people laugh. I just can't get enough of his "cheese" smile (see below).
Best Moment: swim lessons, Josh's birthday, our March Madness 5-day weekend, our ride on Thomas
Worst Moment: nothing
Looking forward to: Easter fun!!


be still my heart
