You are a year and a half old. Kiddo, we are on the downward slope towards two! I can't believe that you've come so far, from that little squalling 8 pound thing to now. I mean don't get me wrong, you still squall, and hit me in the face. But now you smile with your mouth full of teeth when you do so!
Your doctor visit went well (we're still waiting to see the rheumatologist about the weird labs), you weighed in at 28lbs, measured 33 inches tall, and are sticking to your growth chart curves like a champ. You also managed to not smush banana all over the room, so I'm counting the appointment as an overall win!
You have been babbling a lot, but not really stringing together many words. Your word count is at 10, (ball, bubble, bath, ellie, mama, good girl, this, fish, all done). The doctor wants me to call the speech therapist to check in and see if you need a visit with them, I'm going to hold off for a little bit, since mama and dada were late talkers.
You have learned the fine art of temper tantrums, you can go from happy to Norman Bates in about 3 seconds flat. I'm having a really hard time keeping a straight face, since all I want to do is laugh at your mad face. I know you're not actually mad, just frustrated. I know the oven looks like a fun toy, but it's really not... I promise.
You are still going to school (ok it's daycare, but it sounds so much better if I say school!) three days a week, and I have to say, those women have tons of patience, they all still have energy when I pick you up, and you have learned how to scribble and more effectively eat from a spoon all by yourself, You also stopped hitting every baby that you see. Someday soon, you'll be ready to date, and not get a restraining order.
I recently had your curls chopped off again, and while I love how thick your hair is, I am not okay with how much of a big boy you become with short hair. Must.not.cut.again. You somehow learned to close your mouth to kiss, and I have to say, I do miss the open mouth slobber fest just a little bit, mostly when it's happening to other people though. And now for the good stuff. Nolan's l5 months old pictures. Or the week or two surrounding it, either way, here's pics of you :)
