Maddox {18 months old}

18 months.... a year and a half.  How did that happen and who told my baby he could grow up?!  I was looking back on some pictures and videos on my phone the other day and it's seriously crazy how much he has grown even just in the past few months.  I really try not to dwell on it because as hormonal as I am, I will probably just sit and cry lol.

So here's Maddox at 18 months old...
Weight: 34lbs
Size: 24mths/2T
Teeth: 20

Words:
I've tried to keep up with new words as he says them which is starting to become difficult because he is getting a pretty extensive vocabulary for a toddler.
~Old words (words he was saying before 15 months): Kitty, Dog, Ball, Mama, Daddy/dada, Nana, Papaw, shoes, cheese, no, bath, uh-oh, yay, baby, thank you, wa wa, nose, bottle, hi, hey, hello, bye bye, gin gin, quack, book, cookie, dis?, eat, block

~New words (between 15 months and 18 months): Bus, milk, block, eyes, truck, mouth, please, bless you, silly goose, ravioli (almost), belly, frog, sock, love you, peaches, yeh, fish, horse, mouse, bug, up, read it, rabbit, apple, elephant (almost...you know what he's saying anyway), monkey, ribbit, baa, neigh, bird, bee, wash, wow, owl, choo choo, cracker, amen, all done (he does the sign for this when he says it too.... so cute), sandwich (almost lol), yellow

Other Fun Facts:
~Can tell you what sounds different animals make (cow, horse, kitty, lamb/sheep, duck, owl)

~Favorite things to do: read books (well... have someone read books to him), throw the ball, be chased, crawling all over daddy on the floor, run free.

~He loves Mickey Mouse, Curious George, and Chuggington.

~One of his teachers at school said that one day they were saying the blessing for lunch and when they got toward the end, Maddox said "Amen! Amen!".  Like... hurry up, I'm hungry! lol

~He's a super picky eater but he loves every kind of fruit we've given him... with maybe the exception of a sour blackberry.  He will not eat meat... occasionally we can sneak a bite in.  One day he likes something and the next day he throws it on the floor.

~He thinks he's about 4 years old and can do what the big kids do.

~If we are walking down the hall at school while the kids are being walked to his classroom, the older kids all shout "Maddox! Maddox!".  I guess he's going to be the cool kid cause he just eats it up.

~He has thrown some pretty "impressive" tantrums.  I have noticed that they are worse when he's hangry... but who can blame him there, right? lol

~One night as he was sitting with me in the recliner for our bedtime books, Darren was walking out of the room and Maddox said "I wuv you".  My heart melted.

~He loves it when we play on the floor with him.  He likes to stand behind Darren and try to push him over and then belly laughs when Darren falls over animatedly.

~He likes to throw the ball and is definitely a righty.

~He likes to hear himself and has some super high pitch squeals that seem to only come out in the confinds of a car.

~The other day, he was wearing a polo with a little pocket.  I laid him down for a nap when we got home from work like always.  When he woke up, I was about to go get him when I heard a crunch sound over the monitor.  I looked to see what it was and Maddox was putting something in his mouth.  I went to get him and noticed 5 little rocks in the bed with him.  Another was in his mouth and I tried to sweep it out with my finger but he chomped down.  I felt his pocket when I went to change his diaper and he had several little rocks in his pocket!  So funny!  I mentioned this to one of the ladies that works with him at school and asked if he was smart enough to know to do that or if maybe one of the older kids put the rocks in there for him.  She said that he runs with the big kids so he had probably seen them do that and decided he would do it as well.  lol
