16 month birthday today!

My baby guy is 16 months old today! I know I’ve said it before but it’s amazing that every day it seems like he’s learned something new. Yesterday I put out some crayons and paper for him to color and learned that he knows the colors yellow and blue. Today I noticed that he’s really starting to mimic the words that I say. I pointed to a squirrel in my magazine that I was reading, said it out loud, and he tried to say it.

Poor guy is teething pretty bad and in quite a mood today. He’s been throwing tantrums all morning. I finally put on nick jr and he settled watching cartoons. Funny story tho, the dvr changed the channel off of nick jr and he started screaming at the top of his lungs until I put his show back on. It’s pretty funny that he can differentiate between his show and ours at this age. I only let him get away with it because he’s not feeling well.

I think he’s having quite a growth spurt in the last week. He is over 23 lbs now and is eating like a little piggy. I made spinach quiche yesterday and he had 2 big pieces, yogurt, strawberries and blueberries. For lunch he had chicken nuggets, peas and pizza. Dinner he had salmon (which he loved), pasta, and carrots. I love that we haven’t allowed him to be a picky eater and that he eats almost anything that we put in front of him.

Wish us luck this week with the new teeth coming in, we’ll need it 🙂
