Bobby turned 18 months old on October 30, 2010.
Weight: 24.4 lbs. (30th percentile)
Height: 34 inches (92nd percentile)
Sleeping Patterns: Bobby is generally a good sleeper. However, within the past month or so, he's had some issues. He had a horrible nap spell that lasted almost a full month. He was only napping a couple of times a week. His naps are pretty much back on track, with usually one bad nap a week. He will go down anytime between 11am-1pm, depending on when he wakes up. He is also waking up most mornings by 6am, since the time changed. He's getting on average, 11 hours of sleep per night.
Eating Habits: Not much has changed within the past three months. He is generally a good eater, but has his days. It is funny because he will devour something at one meal; only to despise it the next day! I guess this is pretty typical for toddlers. We've also dropped his milk as a sleeping prop. He now has his last cup of milk at dinner, and then we'll do his bedtime routine without it. He's drinking an average of 3 cups of milk per day. Favorite foods: hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pasta, Cheerios, Goldfish, strawberries, peaches, and corn.
New discoveries & Accomplishments: Bobby is obsessed with Thomas the Train, and anything related to it. It is really the only thing he'll watch on TV. His favorite toy is still his Mickey Mouse push toy, along with Lego's, his tool bench, and toy cars. We go to the "choo choo" train park a few times a week, and he loves it there. He's also all over the place at the play ground, and has started sliding down the big boy slides. He runs now, and it is too cute. Bobby's vocabulary is still about the same - about 15 words or so. He mostly repeats words. He'll make his arm go up and down like he's a train conductor (for "choo choo.") We also taught him how to "raise the roof." It's pretty funny. He says "E-I-E-I-O" all the time too. He's still mispronouncing his name as "Ba - Ba." He adores Winston, and will often times give him kisses. He always leans in for a kiss, but never puckers his mouth. He's getting better with his utensils each day. He's much better with the fork. He's interested in drinking from a cup now too. I think he's got all of his teeth, except his incisors. We've had some teething issues with them lately. He is wearing 18 months, and 18-24 months mainly. He's got some 2T stuff that fit already too. He's in a size 4 diaper still, and wears a 7 1/2 shoe.
Places you love: For the most part, we have the same activities each week. Bobby is enrolled in Kindermusik again. We also hit two story times a week at the local library. We have a planned play group each week too. Aside from those, we usually will go to the train park, or regular park a few days a week. Overall, he sees his friends almost daily. Momma loves this too! He really does enjoy doing everything.
Special Friends: All of our neighborhood buds, particularly Cameron, Harper, and Cooper.
Current Events: Republicans take back the House, Chilean miners trapped underground for months are alive and rescued, Auburn University sweeps SEC, and daylight savings ends.
What We did This Day: I can't remember, because it was almost a month ago! I think Bobby and Daddy hung out all day, while mommy worked.
