Theodore: 19 Months



19 months old!  Closer to 2 than you are to 1.  You are growing so fast baby boy.

-You weigh about 23 lbs and are getting longer.

-Still loving to cuddle and suck that left thumb.  We're trying to teach you to suck it only when you're sleeping.  If you stick it in your mouth, we say "thumb thumb" and you take it out.  It doesn't stay out for long...but you're slowly learning.

-You were sick this month with a double ear infection and bronchiolitis (baby bronchitis).  You probably had the ear infection for about 3 weeks.  Never tugging at your ear, but were sniffly and coughing..  Mommy took you into urgent care and sure enough, another ear infection.  Then about a week and a half later, daddy took you back in and you still had the ear infection and developed bronchiolitis.  We're praying you get to feeling better soon little buddy.

-Loving on sissy all the time.  Especially zooming cars around the house and playing with your monkey toy.   You also love racing her up the stairs.  And you normally win.

-You celebrated your 2nd Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We got you a train table for Christmas and you are loving it!

-Still throwing toys and food.  It's getting a little better.

-You're not so sure about people you don't really know yet.  You're very attached to mom and dad especially when we drop you off at the nursery.  Once we leave, you're fine (at least that's what they tell us).  You'll get to where you remember we always come back.

-Walking everywhere and loving your freedom. 

-You're saying mama, dadda, sissy, gigi, mimi, tickle and gibber gabbering all the time.  Your vocab will explode one day just like sissies.  Then we're really in trouble.

-Your favorite food is still bananas.  You also enjoy ritz crackers, cheese, veggie straws, pizza, mac and cheese and peaches.  Still only drinking water and milk.

-Napping in the afternoon typically between 1-3:30pm.  Going down at night around 7pm, sometimes earlier and waking up around 8:15am.  If you get up earlier, you sit there and talk to your doggie.

-You and sis sure do love making a huge mess with all your toys.  But we love it and wouldn't change a thing!

-Wearing mostly size 18 month clothes and size 5 diaper.  Size 5 and 6 shoe.

Love you Theo boy.

-Mommy and Daddy
