16 months

Goodness gracious....can you really be 16 months already!? You have grown quite a personality...others call you "social, a little ham, adorable, happy, little bit" and I tend to agree with them all...you are seriously quite the lil ham....you love to get people to smile, laugh and wave at you....you are SO social....you love other kids especially big kids and love to play with them, you are also known to give out hugs and kisses to them quite regularly completely unprompted..you also love babies...you will pat them and hug them if we let you get close enough:)

We officially started you back on Prevacid and like that your picky eating is over...not sure it correlates or if its coincidental but you will eat pretty much everything again...hallelujah the last couple months with eating before were a little rough...you absolutely love fruit...your faves right now are apples, raspberries and blueberries. You are addicted to cheese...you will go to the refrigerator and shake the freezer handle saying "cheese, cheese" until I get you some...you have quite the appetite sometimes I don't know where you possibly put all the food you eat:)

You are also completely pacifier free....you did amazing, it only took you one night...you slept so great...almost better I think because you didn't wake up and look for your paci...we had a couple nights/naps where you cried when we laid you down which you never did before but this didn't last long....not sure if it helped that you mostly only got it at naps or bedtime and I really let you have it outside your crib as you got older or not...

You love to find and point at your nose, eyes, ears, and belly button....and others too....you absolutely love your book from sweet Wyatt you point at the animals and make noises and like to point out the "bay bays"...your sheep sound is adorable...its like a "blah" with your tongue sticking out....so adorable...

You absolutely love to be outside...you would play outside all day if you could....thankful for the days that have been beautiful out but we have also become creative in the house and you will insist on stroller/bike rides on occasion in the house....looks like you are going to be a sunshine lover like your momma

You are also in love with shoes....you love to put on any kind...yours, moms, dads...you will bring them to us to put on you:)

You love....fruit...yay....my wish from last month came true, playing chase, getting kisses from your doggies.....big kids and babies, shoes, giving hugs and kisses, waving at complete strangers and telling them hi and bye, your lovie and baby, going for walks, park time, shopping

You dislike...having to come inside when playing outside, the hair washing part of bathtime, hit or miss with veggies these days, getting molars, reflux

Your schedule changed a little this month....you are slowly weaning your afternoon nap...you would play for like an hour then fall asleep at 6 and mommy would have to keep waking you up at 7 so you would go back to bed so we decided to try to wean it...you have done really well hoping your early nap lengths a little more still so you are getting enough sleep....we moved your bedtime up to no later than 8 because of this too....
