Wyatt's 18 Months

So Wyatt is actually 19 months, but he had his 18 month check-up right after Maggie was born. Here are his stats:

Head: 20 1/2 in. (100th %)
Weight: 32 lbs. 13 oz. (97th %)
Height: 37 1/4 in. (100th %)

That's right--he's still growing! His percentiles are the same as they were 3 months ago so he's still progressing on his own curve. The doctor says he looks good and healthy and we are just so amazed at this blessing from God.

Here are some details of what his life is like right now:

  • Wyatt wears size 3T clothes, which means he's basically the size of an average 3 year old. He loves to climb up on things and take things from any of the counters. I'm convinced the counter issues would not be a problem if he were the size of an average 18 month old!
  • He loves his baby sister and likes to point to her, pat her on the head (or face), hold her hand in the car, and love on her very sweetly. I have yet to get a picture of the two of them together, so hopefully I can do that soon. It's just very hard to get him to sit still long enough to get the camera.
  • His favorite song is "The Wheels on the Bus." As soon as he gets in the car, he starts waving his arms (like the wipers on the bus) and signing "please" to get us to play it on the cd. Luckily we have the Go Fish Guys version so it's fun to listen to. He also does this to ask to watch youtube videos on the computer of the song. He knows what he likes!
  • He can sign: "more" "please" "milk" (however, he uses it to just mean drink in general, which is fine) and "thank you". I find it very difficult to tell him no when he signs "more please". I have had to do it, but it's so endearing to see him using manners instead of whining!
  • He can make sounds like a car (he's done this since before he was 1 so it's not new), a train, a cow, and a sheep.
  • When he hears applause, he claps and when we laugh, he laughs. Let me just say that we now laugh a lot more because he makes us laugh and then he laughs and then we laugh because he's laughing so he laughs and we laugh and so on!

We love our little man more and more everyday and we thank God for giving him to us!
