CHRISTOPHER IS EIGHTEEN MONTHS OLD!

Hi everyone! My half birthday was actually yesterday but I wanted to wait till I got back from the doctor today. Currently I weigh 28 pounds and am 2'10" tall. I am in the 95th percentile for height and 75th for weight. Doctor said everything physically looked good. However, she is slightly concerned with my lack of vocabulary. I don't say much but I understand alot of what you say. I do say some words... mama, mah (more), ah d (all done), ya ya ya, da (dog), ball, go go go (usually when we are having a car race), dada (sometimes), and oh boy (my favorite)... I love to wave goodbye and my favorite is blowing kisses - I love to help mommy do it too by taking my hand to her mouth.

I love to climb on everything - especially the couch and slide off the arm. I am even getting better with climbing the stairs, however, it takes so much time to come down them that I have found if I sit at the top and cry, someone will come and get me.

I absolutely love french fries. If we are having these with dinner, mommy has to make sure I eat something else before they even come into sight because then I won't eat anything else but. Forks and spoons are still bothersome to me - I'd rather use my fingers. But cups are cool, unless I'm done, then I just dump out the rest. Mommy took the bedtime bottle away from me last week but I don't seem to mind. Sippie cups are a lot of work so I just chew on the top so then they just spill everywhere.

Books, books... I love books. Usually I'm really good with them. I love looking at all the pictures and colors. I even have some that make sounds. I love blocks - building and destroying! I love trains and cars and trucks - just like my brothers.

Well... it's past my bedtime. I promise to check in soon. Bye!

Happy 18 month birthday Christopher! You are a big boy! My Nate (who turned 18 months on July 20th) is 21 lbs and 30 inches!

Oh, and I forgot to add. Christopher says more than Nate does! Nate can say all done, dad, mama and stop. Not consistantly. But I think he understands most of what we say.... my ped wasn't concerned because babbles a lot. Guess that's a good sign...

Anyway, hoping to ease your mind a little.

Glad the check up went well! Such a cute guy - love that big smile! Don't worry too much about the words...they will come, especially as he takes in so much of what his brothers say!

Hope school is off to a good start. I start next week and am dreading it. :-( Its been such a fun summer and I'm so sad its already over.

Wow, you are getting so old. Before you know it, you will be beating up your brothers for their toys.

Your guys are so cute! I miss the days when my 9 were that little *sigh*. They've grown up too fast. Happy Half birthday, Christopher!

Oh, and I forgot to mention that my eldest son barely said anything besides "ama" and "da" until he was 2 years and 2 months old. At that time, he began speaking in 4, 5 and 6 word sentences, and he has never again shut up; today he has a PhD in economics. So when the "average" kid talks is not necessarily an indicator. Have fun with all your boys!
