I started blogging to capture memories and milestones of the children. Bodhi is still at an age where his development changes on a monthly basis, so I wanted to record these times before I forget them.
Weight & clothes size
He’s about 23lb I think, we’ve not been to the health visitors for ages, and he doesn’t stay still on our home scales!
Bodhi’s tops, vests and pyjamas are now all size 12-18 months, although some are still a little long in the arm. He is now wearing some 12-18 month trousers but they are way too long and need rolling up!
Still in a size 3 1/2 F shoe, diddy feet are so cute!
He still has 4 teeth at the top front, 3 at the bottom front and there is one on each side at the back coming through. He still hasn’t got the 4th bottom front tooth through yet, although he has some molars at the bottom back coming through. They don’t seem to bother him too much though, fingers crossed.
Bodhi is still sleeping really well. He does like a long cuddle before he goes to sleep at bedtime but this is just lovely and he doesn’t really cry when he goes in his cot. He now has his nap after his lunch if we are at home which is working well.
We had one night when he was poorly and he was awake between midnight and 3am which was a real shock to the system for me, as I’ve got used to having a fairly good nights sleep (I might have to change my blogs name!!!!)
He is still a good eater, though still not with vegetables. He is also getting quite good at using a fork by himself. It’s rare for me to have to feed him.
Bodhis favourite foods are still grated cheese, pom bears, grapes, pears, kiwis, bananas and ice-cream. He also homes in on any naughty food that I might be eating.
There has not been much change in the actual words that I can make out. All birds are still called ‘duck’. He does point to lots of things in a room so I tell him the name of the objects. He is quite good at making sounds like for thank you. He also sort of sings to row, row, row your boat and there were ten in the bed (roll over).
Still loves the ride-on zebra, red car and pushing Charleys pushchairs.
Loving sitting at the children’s table with all the pens, mostly taking the lids on and off, but also doing a little bit of scribbling.
Brushing his teeth, splashing in the bath, kicking in the swimming pool.
Swings, slides and merry-go-rounds at playgrounds.
Blowing raspberries on his sisters belly.
Stroking my hair when he goes down for a sleep.
Having things taken off him that he shouldn’t have.
Being away from his mummy.
His big sister bossing him around.
Still a bit of a mummys boy, but I love it! He loves having cuddles.
He is mostly very easy going. Happy to go in the pushchair or car seat at the moment.
He will get his changing mat, nappies, wipes and his shoes and socks etc when asked.
He seems to want to be quite helpful at the moment, long may it last!
He can be a little destructive though. This month he has managed to sit on a pipe in our en suite and its broken away from the sink, he’s broken a little outside light, a sugar bowl and dish in a restaurant and pulled a knob off the cooker. I think we may delay putting up our Christmas tree!
What are your little ones up to at 18 months old? Do they say many words? Are they walking and running?
