Nolan's 18 Month Update


Weight: 28 lbs (Measured on Home Scale)

Height: Need to Update (Would not stand still long enough :)

Clothes Size: 24 month (Some 2T shirts)

Diaper Size: 5 (Huggies Snug & Dry)

Sleeping Patterns: Nolan is sleeping through the night (8:00PM - 8:00AM) consistently now.  Sometimes he wants to sleep in even later and I have to wake him up so that he will still nap in the afternoon... He takes an afternoon nap for about 2 hours.

Milestones: Teething: Nolan still has only14 teeth.  Nothing new since his one year molars came in.  Nolan is walking  running EVERYWHERE and can even climb stairs now - He has learned to wait for Mommy or Daddy at the bottom before going up.  He is also able to climb onto the ottoman or couch now by himself.  Eating and feeding himself is going great.  We pretty much give him whatever we are having to eat, which is nice!  He is learning to use a spoon and a fork now too.  His favorite food right now is grapes and mac n cheese (of course) and his least favorite is still green beans.  Nolan still babbles a ton and will occasionally repeat a word or phrase he heres us say, but then of course will not say it again on command.  The few words he can say regularly now are "Momma, Dada, Uh-oh, Papa, READY!, GO!, Yes or Yeah, All done and (very rarely) Please".  Nolan is still finding more and more things to get into... his favorite thing to rearrange right now are ALL of the DVDs in the media cabinet... fun times for Mommy.  Nolan still loves playing with cars and trucks and loves to make sounds along with them.  Nolan loves to play outside and explore - we are so thankful that the weather is finally warming up enough to do so.  He loves to collect bugs, leaves, sticks, flowers, you name it.  Nolan still really likes to help Mommy with chores - he is great at putting his toys away and really likes to "help" throw things away... which usually is wonderful, but sometimes he gets a little carried away and we have to fish a milk cup or napkin ring out of there :).

Favorite Memory this Month:  Nolan knows when it is that time of the day for Daddy to get home... he will start saying his name, pick up my phone and act like he is calling him and/or wait by the door and knock until Daddy comes home.  It is so sweet. :)

Nolan must be super tall to be wearing 24 month clothes already! Easton is about to transition into 18-24 month clothes. He's short but has a big belly! :) Easton also loves green beans, too funny! So looking forward to your trip next month!!!
