21 months (and a few days)

at playgroup, with his black eye :(

Conor turned 21 months old Saturday!

Age 21 months

Weight 28.6lbs

Length 33-34"? Seems like he just grew out of a lot of PJs

Size mostly 2T clothes, size 6 extra wide shoes, size 5 diapers, 3T hats

Hair awesome, per usual

Teeth 2 year molars starting to poke through. Back to strongly disliking brushing (despite a new Cars toothbrush).

Sleeping Doing better in the toddler bed. About 50/50 good sleep/bad sleep, with the occasional totally completely awful night thrown in. However, he's still a great napper, usually taking one 1.5-2 hour nap after lunch.

Eating Drinks from an open cup, obsessed with pancakes ("cakeys") and oranges, loves trail mix (dried cranberries and Kashi cereal)

Movement Nonstop motion, runs and climbs everywhere, getting really good at kicking a ball and shooting a basketball. "Dribbles" by holding the basketball and patting it. Can walk up and down the stairs without help.

Milestones 3 and 4 word sentences ("I want more milk"), roll play (puts teddy bear to bed and "reads" him a story)

Outings Baby Association meeting, swimming lessons, library

Favorite toys/activities Books (favorites are “Tucker”, “Otis”, and travel guides), music (favorite songs are Disney theme songs (Special Agent Oso, Fish Hooks and Jungle Junction ("Jungle Jungle")) and the Fire Truck Song) anything transportation related (especially buses and fire trucks), teepee, play kitchen, swimming, basketball hoop, trains, Legos, coloring

Words/sounds very conversational; can name all the people in his family book; new words include woodpecker ("pecker"), otter, cereal, Mickey, animals, farmer, owl, ostrich, tractor

Memorable Moments first black eye :(, visit from Mimi

Conor's Car

Conor, pointing to Tim's car when we got home yesterday: "Dada's car, dada home!"

Then I pointed to my car: "Whose car is that Conor?"

Conor: "Conor's car."
