Eighteen-month update

Sammy turns eighteen-months old today, which is kind of mind boggling to me because I have absolutely no idea where all of the time has gone.  It seems like just yesterday he was a tiny little baby and now he's most definitely a big boy--I can honestly say that it's been a joy watching him turn into the person he is today.

Vitals: 15 teeth, waiting on the last incisor to come in and then it's on to the two-year molars, yay.  He's wearing all 2T clothing and is just under three feet tall and I'm going to guess that he weighs around 28 pounds or so--he honestly doesn't feel that much heavier although he's definitely gotten taller in the last month.

New words:
Walk, thank you, no (we've been hearing this one A LOT), circle, star, "O" for orange, and tree.

New tricks:
Sammy can now walk up the stairs using the bannister, although he prefers to hold our hand.  He can also use the remote to turn off the tv/stereo components, much to my chagrin.  Sammy loves to turn on the clock radio on my nightstand and tune it to fun stations and dance while I'm getting ready in the morning.  He has mastered the art of eating soup and cereal and eats most every meal with a fork and a spoon.  Sammy can also identify a square, circle, triangle and star when asked.  He also really enjoys making fun imaginary meals for me and CH to enjoy and he loves to feed his stuffed animals "snacks."

Favorite things:
Peppa Pig is still his favorite show--when he hears the theme music, he comes running, saying, "Peppa!" over and over again. Sammy LOVES steamed broccoli, even going so far as to steal some bites from his dad's plate the other night.  Bear snores on is still Sammy's most requested book to be read to and he also really enjoys nursery rhymes and funny songs.

Way to go, Sammy! He and Maeve are about the same size, and she's almost 2 months older! She might actually be 3 feet now - she was 1/2 an inch shy at her 18 month appt! And isn't it great that they're feeding themselves so well these days?

Oh, it seems like just yesterday we were putting ridiculous hats on a complacent little baby, now he'd probably fight back.

I am totally laughing at the "no". It seems to be a favorite word at that age! Hope you have a very blessed Christmas!
