16 Months

Hudson,you are 16 months old!
I am a late getting your post up, but I can't seem to keep up with my to do list.
I really am not sure of your weight. My guess is around 22-23 pounds.

You are wearing 12-18 month clothes, but it is time to move up a size in jammies.
You are wearing size 4 shoes, but they are starting to get tight. I imagine we will be in size 5 soon (that's actually a good thing because we have found some great deals on size 5 shoes that are adorable and I can't wait for you to wear them!)

You wear a size 4 diaper.

You are SO very active! You are all over the house in a matter of seconds. You can get up the stairs so fast it scares me to death. You also that begun taking several steps by yourself. You are getting more confident about standing and walking on your own in general.  You always scare yourself and sit down so quick.

You have taken several steps all on your own (without prompting) so we are waiting for you to take off any time now. I think you are just so used to crawling and you do it so fast that you don't see the need to walk. It will come when it does and we will probably be running to keep up with you!

You still adore Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on tv and love anything lets you make or listen to music. You are learning some new songs like, "If You're Happy and You Know It". You love to clap to that song or for anything you think is exciting. 

You could talk my ear off, but I sure love hearing your sweet voice. You wake up talking and talk until the second I put you down in your crib for the night. I am going to attempt to list the words you say, but I know I will not get them all. So here goes: mom, dada, papa, mama (Mae Mae), Abby, non (Jon), Hannah, Nick, Heather, hot dog, hot, dog, no, that, this, more (sounds like mo), teeth, baba (bottle), bye bye, hello, hi, cheese, animal, up and probably more I'm forgetting. It's amazing how quickly you pick up on saying words. I love watching you learn new things.

You are a pig when it comes to eating! You are in love with your sweets and know exactly where to find them in the kitchen. You are more selective about what you choose to eat when we put things on your plate. I think most of it has to do with what you decide you want to eat at the moment. There isn't much that you put in that mouth of yours that you decide you don't like. 

You are still on the bottle for bed and nap times, but mommy has high hopes of breaking that this summer when I'm home with you everyday.

We haven't seen any signs of teething this month (that we know of). We think you are all done for a while. Hopefully we won't experience any more until your 2 year molars.

You are a good sleeper and have a great routine. You go to bed at 9 and wake up around 7. This past week you have been up earlier and I'm not sure why. Mommy is about to be home for summer and has high hopes of sleeping in until 7am every day. You take about a 2 hour nap every day too!

You have a few favorite things you love: blowing kisses, playing with a blanket and pillow on the floor, and fake snoring (hilarious). You love buckling yourself in your car seat or highchair. You also love electronics and talking on the phone. You think that every time Mae Mae's phone rings that Papa is calling and you say /hewo/ so adorably.

You are so fun to be around and keep us quite entertained. Mommy and daddy love watching you grow everyday and are amazed at how smart we think you are. You are always surprising us with new things. We are thankful for you and the joy that you bring us. We love you baby boy!
