20 Months!!

I can’t believe that my baby is 20 months old now!! He is really becoming such a little boy…and not a baby at all anymore!!

What’s happening this month?!:

-I think that Blake weighs 26 or 27 pounds…not positive though!!
-Still in 18 months clothing and the shorts are still a little big around the waist. He is tall and lean.
-Talking more and more…putting a couple of words together, but not sentences yet. Says, “night night mama,” “bye bye dada,” etc. New favorite word is NO, and says it loud and clear!
(checking out the sheep at the fair)
-Getting so brave in the water! Loves to go swimming in the lake and run through the sprinkler. We tried the spray park for the first time this weekend and he was nervous at first, but really loved it after a bit.
-Gives real closed-mouth kisses now, with loud “muuuu-ahhhhhhhh” sound effects. I love it.
-Went to the movies for the first time (Toy Story 3) and sat through the whole thing like a good boy!!
-Still sleeping from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m…..I know we are lucky! He actually gets excited to go to bed…and asks us if it is “night night?” yet. Does a good job at nap time as well!
-Trying to get rid of the bottle all together….but he is too smart! I know that we are WAY behind on getting him off his “ba”…but we are trying. We are down to just giving it to him at bed time…but will need to go cold turkey soon. He doesn’t take it at all at daycare, so it’s our fault that he suckers us into it at home! (p.s. Ryan is a bigger sucker than I am when it comes to this)!
-Starting to get somewhat aggressive with cousin Addy. She likes to get very close to him and up in his face, and when he has had enough he gives her a shove…he is so strong that he can knock her over…

(with daddy at the fair)
-Which leads us to time out. We have started to use time out when he is being naughty. He actually responds to it quite well…and knows that it means that he is in trouble. He will sit in his chair until he is ready to be nice. I know that this is a phase, but I hate seeing him be aggressive!!
-Has an obsession with horses….ever since going to the fair. We let him rise the pony and now he thinks that he is a cowboy. Everything is neigh-this and neigh-that. At night it’s “night night neigh”…and when we leave its “bye bye neigh”… funny.
-Leaving him at daycare is no big deal at all. He could care less than I am leaving and just says “bye mama”

(running through the sprinkler...with a huge audience in the background...this poor kid doesnt get enough attention)
Overall, Blake continues to be SUCH a great boy and a joy to have. I just cant imagine our lives without him!! We love him so much!

I love this age! You are so lucky he is a good little sleeper! Oh and that he does not cry at daycare! My son started going at about 20 months and would cry everyday until he was 3! It just made me feel awful to leave him.

Happy 20 months Mr. Blake. He is such a cutie. I think its good you do time outs with him. Cooper is already really defiant and I'm afraid the time out thing is close in our future. I'll be asking your advice before you know it.

Such a cutie! Do tell how you got him to stay put during time out. The dude is not taking to it very well. HA!
