I’m still in my size 3 Pampers – and will be FOREVER. The sizing says the go up to 28lbs and I’m still only about 22 – I’ll have a more accurate height/weight update after my appointment with Dr. Andy this morning.
I’m in mostly size 18 months, but just barely; my 12 month pants are a bit too short, but the 18 month ones are very loose in the waist, so I’m always hitching them up (or just walking out of them entirely).
Once again, it’s time to check in with the BabyCenter Milestone Chart. This was going to be a little more in depth, but Mommy and Daddy were *both* sick yesterday, so I had to take care of them… Luckily, Coach came over to play for a while because they were being BORING.
Mastered Skills (most kids can do)
- Will “read” board books on his own – Definitely. I sit and flip through the pages of my favorites ALL the time – and I can read one of them all on my own!
- Scribbles well – Not really; I tend to chew on the crayons, and Mommy won’t let me use the markers…
Emerging Skills (half of kids can do)
- Strings two words together in phrases – Yep! “more milk” is the most frequent, but I tack on “please” whenever I *really* want Mommy to do something. Also, I yell “uh-oh Daddy” whenever I notice he is missing, or when Mommy walks too far away from him when we’re out together. You have to watch Mommy – she’d lose Daddy ALL the time if I wasn’t there to help her!
- Brushes teeth with help – Without help, even! We brush all my toofies every night before bed time. Our froggy friends live in the bathroom, so I like to say good night to them, too.
- Stacks four blocks – Yes! Four? Try ten! I love stacking them *almost* as much as knocking them down…
Advanced Skills (a few kids can do)
- Throws a ball overhand – Sort of – it doesn’t get very far, though.
- Takes toys apart and puts them back together – None of my toys really come apart, so I’m not sure if I can do this or not…
- Shows signs of toilet training readiness – Really? Already? Not so much.
