18-month checkup

At his 18-month checkup, Preston weighed in at 25 pounds and measured 30 inches long (both around 50% percentile). He is starting to show signs of the "terrible twos" with little tantrums once in a while and saying "no" much more. But, for the most part, he is still a very happy and curious little guy.

It's been a while...

Preston is now 18 months old and is turning into a little boy so quickly. He is talking up a storm and here are some of the things he loves:
-Elmo, Ernie, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Oscar
-Football and basketball (playing, watching, talking about, reading about)
-Swimming at the pool with Grampy at the gym
-Guitars and "songs"
-Beebees (this could mean babies, basketball, binky, etc)
-Cars and trucks
-Reading books
-Brushing his teeth
-His rubber duckie

He can say lots of words now. Here's a list of some examples:
- He can recognize and name lots of animals and their sounds including cow, sheep, horsey, doggie, kitty, duckie, fish, turtle, penguin, shark, chicken, peacock
-mommy, daddy, mimi, grampy, granny, grandad, honor, olly, bobby, jenny, lesley, junko, dug, mazzy, nonnie, dee dee
-brush, cookie, cracker, orange, peas, apple, books, barn, bath, football, watch, clock, snow, "outside", please, thank you, guitar, shoes, socks

I'm going to try and keep this blog more updated in the coming year, but things are going to get much more busy come the end of may- we are expecting baby #2!
