16 months…

I cannot believe that Blake is 16 months old already. The months are going so fast! He is really changing so much (I know that I say that every month…but it just amazes me)! He is such a little sweetie…and we just love him SO much!!

What is Blake up to this month?
Never really cries when he wakes up in the morning…I can just hear him on the monitor…he is usually just talking away. When I walk in to get him he has the biggest smile on his face. What a great way to wake up! When I pick him up out of his crib he pats my back…and it just melts my heart!

He is loving his days at “school”…he goes there every Monday and Wednesday. He gets excited when I say it’s time for school. He will run and grab his coat and wait by the door.

He has been enjoying swimming lessons each Monday and Wednesday night. He is quite the little fish. He has come a long way in just 4 weeks of swimming…you can tell he is very comfortable now. Tomorrow is our last session.
He is obsessed with balls…throwing them, catching them, finding them…etc.

He has been on the Pediasure for just about 1 month, and I can really see a difference. I think that he has put on about 2 pounds…which is really great. We go back to the doctor on the 30th for her to check up with him. We will also check on his allergy situation then. He has been on the Zyrtec for that same amount of time and I think that it has made a big difference.

He LOVES to be outside. Would stay outside all day if we let him. He is very mobile, and prefers to walk over riding in the stroller. He enjoys his time at his Aunt Dani’s softball games, because he can roam around.
He is just starting to outgrow SOME of his 12 month clothing….he is starting to wear some 18 month stuff!!

Eating habits fluctuate. Sometimes he does a great job…some days he just isn’t interested in eating much at all. Just when I think that we have him figured out, he changes. He loves fruit, especially strawberries and bananas.

He takes one nap per day…usually for about 1.5 hours. He continues to be a great night sleeper…down at about 8, up at 7:30…we have been really blessed in the department.

Still not much of a talker (at least when it comes to words that we can make out)….still just the same things he has been saying for months, but he sure does babble a lot. I just wish we knew what he was talking about.

On Tuesday’s and Thursday’s my mom is coming over and staying with him…and then he goes to his in-home daycare in the afternoons. He has a pretty varied schedule throughout the week…but I think it’s great. It makes him very adaptable, and he just goes with the flow! Ryan has had Friday’s off (he works 4 10’s), so the two of them have lots of quality time on Friday’s!

He is just a joy to be with…love him SO much!! Happy 16 months little peanut!!
