18 Months Old

We had William's 18 month "well* visit" today.

(*I use the term 'well' loosely b/c he is still recovering from his Hand Foot Mouth infection.  Sorry again, Bridget and Mom!  I owe you big time!  B - Let me know when you/Wells want a night away and Michael and I will come to your house and watch all the kids...even if they're sick!)

He is:

  • 25 lbs 5 oz (45th percentile - which blows my mind b/c he seems HUGE to me)
  • 32.25" tall (50th percentile)
  • 18.75" head circumference (50th percentile)

So, all in all, he is an average sized baby. :)
He's started talking a bit.  He now says:  More, up, uh-oh, ball, beaux, cat, car, truck, bubble...and I'm sure I'm missing a couple others.
He's also into anything with wheels, climbing, running, and kicking.  He is 100% pure boy.  And still showing signs of tantrums and frustration...which I'm guessing will only increase in frequency and magnitude for the next 12-24 months.  (Yay!)
Here are a couple pictures from William's stay at Bridget's house last week while we were in Mexico for Adam's wedding (Congrats, Adam and Melissa!).  He was definitely feeling yucky but apparently still ate cookies and goldfish crackers.
Was okay and playing with Oliver the day after we left...but illness was already brewing, because then...

 He wouldn't eat. Or sleep.  Or probably do anything peacefully.  But apparently he still ate cookies.  (You can see a few of the rash blisters beneath his mouth; and this was only a bit of it, Bridget said it was much worse than even this picture lets on..)

 Asleep on my mom's lap while watching "The Sound of Music".  And trying to get out one more goldfish to snack on in his sleep.

Staying with a houseful of girl cousins means you drink out of whatever cup you can get your hands this case, a pink Hello Kitty cup.  (At least we didn't see any pictures of him in tutus or with purses this time!)
