14 months!!

Blake turned 14 months old on Saturday, and I have yet to do my ‘14 month’ post….so here goes!

Blake has made HUGE progress in the past month. It is amazing how much he changes. You can just see his little brain working! It is great.
He is becoming much more independent. He pretty much walks everywhere. He follows us around the whole house and is in to EVERYTHING.

He was sick quite a bit this past month. Double ear infections and lots of congestion. He was on anti-biotics twice. He is still quite snotty….but we think that is a combination of daycare and winter. Poor kid.
He has quite the appetite now. He eats what we eat pretty much every night for dinner, so that is nice. For breakfast he eats toast, cereal, fruit, waffles, pretty much anything! He still likes to munch on the Gerber Graduate wagon wheels and puffs every once in awhile…but is moving towards all ‘adult’ food.

He still wears the size 3 diapers and weighs in at just over 21 pounds.

He still has 6 teeth. 4 on the top and 2 on the bottom.
Blake is still wearing size 12 Month clothes and size 18 month are just way too big right now.

He still hasn’t had a haircut, but his curly hair is getting LONG and CRAZY! We love it though.
Blake really knows how to get what he wants now and can throw a temper tantrum (YAY…not). He throws his body on the floor and will wail.

He sleeps each night from about 8:00 p.m. to about 6:30 a.m. Not bad I guess!! He has always been a pretty early riser.
Day care is much better now. He likes it at both paces, but the separation anxiety is starting to set in. He clings to me when I leave him. His teachers say that this is very common at his age….and that he is fine after I am out of site. I am sure that this is MUCH harder on me than it is on him!

Overall he is a PERFECT child and we feel so blessed that he is ours! He is the light of our life!!
