19 months

Yesterday was Ethan’s 19 month birthday…. and here’s what’s new….

The last 2 days he’s been excited to go to school. Yesterday he stood at the front door with his backpack aka lunch box blowing kisses to dad saying “I’m ready to go”. When we got there, he walked over to a friend and didn’t give me a second look. When I came to pick him up, he was throwing a football and started crying when I picked him up, he didn’t want to leave. The best thing I could ask for!!

Today, a couple of tears when we left the house because he didn’t want to leave dad, but when we got to school, off he went on the playground. He didn’t even give me time to zip his sweater.

Ethan looked a bit silly today because he’s all of a sudden very particular about what he puts on and what he wants. Last night he took some crocs out of his drawer, and wanted Jarrod to put them on him. They were inseparable after that. I tried taking them off when he went to bed and he started throwing a tantrum. So he slept in the crocs.

This morning Jarrod tried taking them off to change him, another tantrum… So, he wore the crocs to school (which are too large for him) and that we bought for the beach/pool.

Ethan also has 3 favorite shirts; one with a football, Thomas the train and a car. He loves them! If he spots them, he will grab them and insist that I help him put them on.

I can ask Ethan to get a book for me to read with him. He runs to his room and brings one back. I then tell him to put it back before grabbing another one, and he will.

Ethan’s working on 3 new teeth. Before we know it, he’ll have a full set.

As we speak, he’s in his crib singing. 19 months is a great stage, he’s so much fun!

That’s all for now!
