18 Month Stats

For the people that read this blog (the 3 of you out there..) I'm SO SORRY I've been slacking in keeping it updated lately. I feel like we have been busy busy, but not with super interesting post-worthy things. But Jack had his 18 month check-up appointment today (yes, he's actually 19 months now...obviously I have been slacking in other things besides blogging...)

Weight: 25.13 lbs - 30th percentile -I guess all that running around he does is burning off a few pounds...
Height: 33.5 in. - 75th percentile
Head circumference: 19.75 in - 95th percentile. As always, his head is growing faster than the rest of him :)Jack loves:
-Music and dancing. Especially anything with a hip hop beat haha but he's been known to break out his dance moves during the hymns at church too. He loves swinging those hips around.
-Hercules (we're on a 3 a day average of watching the first 30 mins of this one), Sid the Science Kid, and Alvin & the Chipmunks - notice a pattern in these? ALL have lots of music, and lots of dancing.
-Playing in the bathtub. Even when it's empty. He would play in there with his bath toys all day if I let him.
-Books, books, books.
-Playing at the park.

Jack can say:
(in sign language:)
-All done
-Thank You

(Verbally - mostly understandable:)
-Airplane ("Air!")
-Mom (if bribed...)
-Zeus (okay, Harrison doesn't believe me on this one, but I SWEAR he said it after watching all of this Hercules lately)
-Jesus ("e-sus")
-Outside/Slide ("side")

He is such a cheerful bab--toddler! He is growing up so fast! We love him so much!

Things I've learned this summer

1. Jack is a water baby. He has loved playing in the pool, the beach, and even the "pool" we made for him by filling up the ice chest with water for him to splash around in.

2. I like to hike. Who knew? We hiked the "Y" this summer, and it was so fun. I'm glad we got to do it before we leave Provo (whenever that is...)

3. A little (very little) about what it's like to be a military wife. My cute husband was commissioned as an officer in the US Army. He did so well at LDAC and I'm so proud of him!!

4. I love hanging out with my family. (ok I've always known this, but I got to do a lot of it this summer.)

Hope your summer has been as fantastic as ours!!
