Isaiah turned 18 months old yesterday! Hard to believe it. These past 18 months have been challenging but so incredibly amazing and I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. A lot has happened and we are rolling with the punches. The most important milestones for us is that Isaiah after 18 LOOOOONNNNGGG months is finally sleeping through the night! This coincided with his also finally giving up the bottle and our lives are so much more rested now :)
Isaiah, at 18 months old, you:
-eat nonstop. If Cater or Olivia get up and leave their food on the table, you go over and start eating off their plates. There isn't a whole lot you won't eat. You eat a LOT of vegetables (when I cook them). You love squash, green beans, cooked carrots, salad sometimes. sometimes asparagus. You truly eat all the time!
-weight about 24 pounds and have been in 18-24 month clothes for a few months now. You are solid like a linebacker.
-still take one long nap in the afternoon usually. Of course, I'm most excited about not waking up in the middle of the night every night. I had no idea what a good night's sleep felt like until two weeks ago :)
-are getting pretty fiesty (we assume you are taking after your older siblings). Sometimes you walk around with your hand ready to smack something. You walk around something to karate chop. You love saying "Hi-ya!" like the karate kid. It's so funny.
-are talking all the time and have a ton of words you say. You said "book" this morning and learning new words almost daily.
-love playing peek-a-boo and the infamous "I'm not gonna give you kisses" game, which I will blog about at another time.
-are generally pretty happy unless you are hungry or tired. You do have your moments and you are getting easily frustrated when you can't figure something out but overall, you are an easy baby and are so loving. You love giving kisses, hugs and "sweet eyes".
-have almost all of your teeth now. I'll be glad when this stage is over with :)
-are getting into EVERYTHING. You have seriously stepped up your game since moving. You find markers and draw all over the walls (thank the Lord for Mr. Clean magic erasers) You put the t.v. remote in the toilet. You climb on all the furniture and it's not common for me to walk in the kitchen and find you standing in the middle of the table. Oh, the joys of parenthood....
Isaiah, you are the joy of our lives. You are such a sweet little guy and we love you more and more each day. Happy 18 month old birthday Baby I!!
