17 months

Thursday, March 20, 2014

I am so late on this post with no real excuse except that time passes just too darn fast! 17 months already... And sweeter and sweeter every day. 




Weight: 29 lbs
Height: 31 inches
Favorite foods: He eats 100% what we eat therefor I've really had to focus that what we keep in the house is nutritional. He loves eggs for breakfast though I occasionally make batches of whole wheat pancakes to eat throughout the week. We do french toast a few times a week and he always eats fruit with his breakfast. Normally banana, raspberries, blueberries or kiwi. Lunch is either a veggie quesadilla, an avocado melt, mac n cheese with veggies, or leftovers from the night before. Dinner favorites are any sort of pasta or fish. He also likes breaded chicken and will eat veggies if he can eat them off of Michaels plate. Snack time includes granola, yogurt, whole wheat goldfish, or gram crackers. We still do organic 2% milk with breakfast, lunch and and hour before bed while he is settling down in the evening. 
Sleep: It's definitely time to add this category. He is a terrible sleeper. He will take a 3 hour nap if I hold him. Obviously this isn't reasonable forever. On occasion I can set him down in his crib and he will stay there for an hour or so until he startles and sees I'm not holding him. At night he sleeps 10 hours max. I hold him until he falls asleep then put him in his crib at 9:00. Sometimes he wakes up at 10:30 and only settles down if he comes to our bed, sometimes he will stay in his crib until 4am but never stays there the whole night. He has yet to sleep through the night in his own crib. He will sleep until 7am in our bed. Though everyone tells us to cry it out (us and him) it really doesn't bother Michael and I too much, and I just can't do CIO. It's not for me, yet. Hopefully he grows out of this eventually?! 
Favorite toys: Books and wood puzzles are his absolute favorite. Kitty kitty his stuffed animal from GG. He also is still obsessed with the jug of plastic Easter eggs I got him from target. 
New words: Help, bink, dog. Speech has been slow for him. He knows what things are... And will retrieve things when I ask him to. He knows where things belong and knows to get his jacket, shoes, time to go, upstairs, get in your seat, take Rocky's bowls back, go get the broom, hi, bye, get your cup, etc, etc, etc. He has just been slower verbalizing. 
Milestones: I feel like he does a lot more this month (as mentioned above) to know what I'm asking of him. He tries to dress himself in the morning. He is learning to jump which is the cutest thing ever. He is my little helper with Rocky during the day. He will try to open the back door to let Rocky out if Rocky is standing there or to let him back in. He also holds the spoon with Rocky's peanut butter and vitamins in the morning. If Rocky barks he tries to give him his bink. He feeds him everything including his sippy of milk. He can point out his head, hair, nose, feet and bum bum. He is also showing signs of being potty training ready which I may start easing into after our trip. His diaper is dry in the morning from the night before, and he hides when he #2's. 
Least favorite activities: Having to do anything he doesn't want. Restaurant high chairs, and diaper changes still top the list too. 
Most used baby items: Recently, I downloaded some apps on my kindle fire for Roman and it has been a huge help while in the car or grocery shopping. He loves the Sesame Street app and anything with animal sounds. He is still obsessed over the potty book by Leslie Patricelli. It's the cutest book ever and he gets so excited on the "bye, bye diaper" page. 
Looking forward to this month: The weather is finally turning and we have been taking daily walks. We celebrated our anniversary yesterday and Roman pigged out on Chipolte like the rest of us. He also loved watching our wedding video and freaked out screaming "da, da" anytime Michael would come up on the tv. One month and counting until the Bahamas!!
