Another month has come and gone so quickly! Being your mommy sure makes my days fly by. I try to enjoy every moment of them I can though, because you will all grown up before I know it.
You know more words that we can keep up with now. Your first two word phrase, which you are now saying on a daily basis, is “Eat dinner”. You also say it when it’s time for breakfast, or lunch, or snack – you are getting the hang of knowing when it’s meal time though. You have very good manners and saying “tank too” (thank you) after someone gives you something has become automatic. We are working on “Please” now and you are getting good at saying it too. When something goes wrong, you say “Oh man” and you are becoming very affectionate. Mommy and Daddy gets lots of hugs and kisses from you – I cherish these days, because you’ll eventually be too much of a big boy to want to love on me!
Easter was so much fun this year. Your first egg hunt was here at home by yourself. Nana and Auntie Krista brought some plastic eggs filled with money and candy over and we hid them in the backyard. After picking up the first couple, you quickly caught on and were walking all over the yard looking for them. You had fun dying eggs the night before Easter too. You made a mess but it was totally worth you getting to experience your first night of Easter egg dying.
You’ve had some issues with sleeping all night in the past 2-3 weeks. You don’t like the idea of going to bed, but then you also wake up around 4am-5am. It’s probably just sleep regression, but it’s hard when you are in there whining (half-asleep, might I add), and we have to be up the next day. You take good naps though, so I can’t really complain too much. You love sleeping with “Mick” and during the day, you like dancing with him as he sings “Dot Dog” (the “Hot Dog” song).
At your 18 month doctor’s appointment at the end of March, you weighed 29.6 lbs and were 33 inches tall. You stood on the big boy scales and got a sticker when you were done. You aren’t much of a baby anymore, but saying you are a toddler sounds too old and grown up. You will always be my baby though, so I’ll still call you one while you’ll let me.
