Owen is 18 Months!

Owen is officially 1.5 years old now!  Here are a few fun facts about my sweet little 18 month old boy.

-Owen had his 2nd haircut this month.  You can observe the before and after pictures above.

-FINALLY starting to enjoy a little variety in his diet!  After a couple months of almost nothing but yogurt, applesauce, crackers and baby food pouches....this is by far the most exciting achievement right now!

-Loves Lightning McQueen ("Ly-ing") and Mater ("Mare") and points out everything with either of their pictures on it.

-Enjoys watching football (in moderation) and says "Uh oh!" every time there's a big tackle.

-Wants to "pish" (push) any button or flip any switch he can see.

-Will take a juice box over a piece of candy any day!

-Takes one 2-3 hour nap every afternoon.

-Can not be trusted to walk anywhere in public on his own!  He refuses to hold my hand and often runs off.  He's really starting to gain a new sense of independence!

-Loves to climb and walk up stairs and has no fear whatsoever.

-Saying new words everyday and putting several words together now.  The other day he got breakfast all over his hands and said "I'm a mess!"

-Likes to stand at the window and look out at the squirrels and birds.

-Loves to dance and shake his booty!

-Says "Please" and "Thank You" some of the times.  :)

-Currently dealing with (and not so well I might add) his first ear infection.

-Weighs 24 lbs. and measures 32.5 inches tall.  Our new ped. office doesn't do percentiles, but I looked online and it says he's in the 25th for weight and 56th for height.

-Loves to sing Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, 5 Little Monkeys, She'll be Coming Round the Mountain, If You're Happy and You Know It, Wheels on the Bus, and Little Green Frog. Yes, Owen really likes music. :)

-Loves to put on socks and shoes...mainly because he thinks that means we're going outside.

-Still has a serious attachment to his "duck-duck."  Even Austin knows better than to mess with Owen's duck-duck!

-Barely sits still long enough to read unless it's Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Chicka Chicka 1-2-3, A Potty for Me, The Gruffalo, or any book that has to do with cars or monster trucks.
