18 Month Update

Last week Barron turned 18 months old.  It is crazy how fast a year and a half can go!  I decided to give you a complete update on him.  At his check-up he weighed 29 pounds, 8 ounces making him in the 90%.  He is 34 3/4" tall putting him in 97%, and of course his head size is 97%!  He is a big boy.

Our favorite toy to play with is a ball.  We have 6 of them in the house, so you can imagine how annoying they can be to a Mother wanting a neat house!

Barron's favorite past time is brushing his teeth...

Barron never took to a passy or a blanket, but he does love his Teddy Bear.  Grandmother Krutz gave it to him at my baby shower (and it was a re-gift I might add).  I really didn't know what to do with him.  I decided to make my Mother-in-law happy and place him in Barron's room.  Well I am glad I did.  He has loved that Bear from the start, as you can see from this pic when he was 7 months.

Not to long ago Barron decided he wanted to be rocked to sleep with the Teddy Bear.  He drug the bear over and threw a temper tantrum until I picked up the bear with him.  We really don't have to rock Barron to sleep at night but we do for his nap.  And this is usually how we are doing it...

The things you will do for your children.  The hard part is getting him from that position to his crib!

Barron now thinks he is too big for his highchair and refuses to eat in it.  So I got him a booster seat so  he can eat from the table with us.  He is not the best eater anymore but he will take a few bites here and there.

Barron is a little delayed with his speech.  He can say a few words like Mama, Dada, bye bye and of course No.  He loves to make animal noises for dogs, cows, and sheep.  Barron may not be able to speak much but he definitely knows just about everything we are saying.  He can pretty much point to all of the parts on his body.  Here he is pointing to his teeth (and probably wanting them brushed).
