I only missed it by a couple of days :) My BIG boy is now 17 months! I want to start doing monthly posts so I can remember what he could do and say when he’s older. Here are some stats on Brayden.
He can say:
Go (and also go, go, go!)
Moon (and he will look to the sky and point to where it is. If he can’t find it he will say “I don’t”, which means “I don’t know”)
I don’t (see above)
Choo choo (with arm motions)
Quack (although quack quack has been replaced with choo choo when you ask him what a duck says)
Mama (but, when I ask him to say mama he looks me in the eyes and yells DADA!)
Car (omg. this boy LOVED cars!)
Nana (which means banana, but it really means all food)
He can jump and spin. He loves to run. We’ve been going swimming several times a week and we’re hoping to start lessons next week. We’re still going to Gymboree and we’re up to Level 4 now with the big kids!
Brayden is still obsessed with Madagascar. As a matter of fact, he loves all animals. We went to the fair on Saturday and he loved the petting zoo! He petted all of the animals and panted at them (his word for dog). He loves his Hauggy and is actually really gentle with him. And Hauggy is doing really well with him too. B initially liked pony rides, but when we went last month he refushed to go on them so I guess he’s over ponies!
We’re still having eating issues. At his 15 month appointment (but he was really 16 months) he was in the 94th percentile for height, but only 18th for weight. We’re doing everything we can to get this boy to eat, but he’s just too busy!
And a couple more funny things. We have a UCLA gnome on a chair outside of our door and every time we leave he has to say bye bye to the gnome. It’s really cute. I think he’s learning how to count. He will jump off of the fireplace and say “uh, uh, uh” and jump. I think the “uh’s” are supposed to be 1, 2, 3. He will make funny motions with his hands like he’s trying to use his fingers, but he can’t quite figure it out.
