20 Months!

Seriously - could time go any faster?  I swear I was just planning Andrew's 1st birthday party and now here we are, four months from his 2nd birthday. Yeesh.  Whoever set time to warp speed, could you kindly slow it back down???

Stats: I assume he is around 32" and 26ish lbs.  We don't have another appt with his pedi until 2 years and getting him to stand still long enough to weigh him is like trying to nail jello to a tree.

Clothes:  He wears a variety at the moment.  For the most part he is in 18 month shirts, but he does wear some 24 month size. Those ones run big so he has some time to grow in to them.  Most of his pants are 18 month size although he fits into some 12-18 month size jeans. He has some 18-24 month jeans that are huge on him so again, he has some growing to do.  He's in size 4 diapers still, but we may move to size 5 with the next box. He doesn't leak out of the 4's, but I assume we should move up soon.

New Words:  His latest favorite word is "star".  He has a star wand from a birthday party a few months ago, a little yellow plastic ball with blue stars, a star bubble wand, and countless books that have stars in them.  Anytime he sees one he yells "stars" and he is constantly carrying one of these items around.  He also learned "pizza" (pee-zaa), "basketball" (bah-di-ball), "bubble" (booboo), "baby",  and the letter "U".  He also moos when he sees a cow, which is one of the funniest things ever. I'm sure there are others, but these are the ones that I can think of right now.

Latest Tricks:  This kid is a freaking daredevil.  I posted recently about his penchant for climbing on anything and everything.  Well, his latest is also hopping down off of things frontwards, and doing diving somersaults over my legs when I'm sitting on the couch with my feet up on the ottoman.

I have to catch him before he hits the ground and make sure he lands softly on his back instead of directly on his head (which has happened a few times so far).

Favorite Toys:  He is obsessed with a couple of bubble wands that he has and will carry them around everywhere.  Even down to the farmer's market this weekend:

He still loves his Dut (and his Tigger that he's holding above) and he has finally gotten into books.  He loves to go in his tent in the living room and look at his books.  Lately he is loving his little glowing seahorse that he's had forever, too.

Favorite Foods:  Sad to say, but it's still hot dogs.  I give him turkey dogs and he only gets one a week (sometimes two), but I still feed bad giving him hot dogs.  He also loves homemade mac n' cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, fruit bites, those little fruit pouch things (especially applesauce), mashed potatoes, greek yogurt, pancakes, french toast and anything with peanut butter.  Getting him to eat is still a challenge, but we're getting there.

20 months of fun down and a lifetime to go!


  1. DOn't feel bad about the hot dogs! Evie LOVES her some kraft mac n cheese and she gets it at least once a week!

    Also I can't believe they are 20 months old! And this must be the daredevil age bc E LOVES to jump off stuff right now!

    1. Andrew likes the kraft mac n cheese as well, but he LOVES the rich creamy stuff that we've gotten for him at restaurants (especially Cracker Barrel).

      And here I thought his craziness was due to him being a boy - good to know that little girls are just as insane :)

  2. little cutie :)
    If it would get Liam to eat meat, I would have zero problem with a few hot dogs ;) My kid is turning into a weird vegetarian who doesn't even like pizza.
    Love the flying blurry baby pic, lol

    1. We can only get him to eat pork (he loves pork tenderloin) and sometimes chicken. Daycare somehow gets him to eat a lot more than he will eat for us - I think it's because there are 3 other kids eating the same thing.

      I should have tried to get a video of him flying over my legs, but I had to catch him every time he did it. Kid is crazy.
