Stats: 22 lbs 5 oz. Growing out of all his 12 month clothes and is wearing mostly 18 month things. Size 4 shoes and diapers.
Health: He’s had a little bit of a rash around his mouth because he has been sucking on his lips. He had a stuffy nose for a day or so. But that’s really about it. He has been so healthy this winter!
Sleeps: Except for Sunday night, he has been sleeping great. Last night he even went 10.5 hours without waking up!! During the day he takes one nap around lunch that’s usually about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Eats: This week’s favorite food is blackberries. And animal crackers. After I said last week that he doesn’t like sweets, he’s suddenly figured out that he loves animal crackers. And he knows where we keep them. So whenever he wants one, he tries to open the cabinet and take out the container of them.
He loves sharing his food – and will always try to feed you whatever he’s eating.
Likes and Dislikes: This kid loves being outside. I think he would spend all day out there, if he could. It’s great. I love that he wants to play outside.
He loves music and loves dancing. I tried to get a good video of him dancing – but it didn’t really turn out.
He also LOVES riding on escalators. He will run up to them, and then stand the whole way up without moving (so serious!!) and then as soon as he’s off he will immediately turn around and want to go again. I think we could probably kill a good 30 minutes just riding up and down.
He also discovered bubble wrap this week and had lots of fun walking around it.
He also likes sitting down, but not staying seated. He will find somewhere to sit (one of his favorite places is in the fridge), and turn around and kind of back into it, sit down, stay there for a couple of seconds, and then get up and do it again.
Social and Activity: This past weekend we took Cooper to Monkey Bizness, an indoor play gym for little kids. He LOVED it!! HIs favorite, by far, was the bounce house. He did really well walking around it, and couldn’t get enough of the slide.
