Maddox {21 months old}

Technically, he won't be 21 months for a few days but it was just too close to call it 20 months :)  Reality is beginning to set in that keeping up with these posts is going to be increasingly more difficult once baby Sawyer is here but I'm going to try my very best.  This is the only "baby book" I have!  I want to try to keep it going for Sawyer too.  Wish me luck right?

Maddox at 20 months old (according to the doctor)...
Weight: 36lbs (99% haha)
Height: 33.5in (50-75%)
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
~(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
~New words (between 18 months and 21 months): ride, oh bumpers (I thank Chuggington for this one), nugget, noggin, zebra, head, chin, cheek, toes, feet, spider, boogers, shake, worm, almost, easy, pictures, wagon, buggy, red, blue, airplane, George, Addison, pineapple, Gammy, hot, calls bicycles and motorcycles both "sickle cycle", church, Mickey Mouse, airplane, crayon, color, Sophie, Copper, I Don't Know, sleeping, nap, diaper, breakfast, oatmeal, hot dog, sit down, Here you go, night night, people, stairs

~He's starting to put words together in 2 or 3 word sentences.

~He likes to list people out and tell where they are...  Dada working, Papaw working, Nana home, Gammy home.  It's really cute.

~He is obsessed with Curious George but also likes Clifford (calls him Tifford), Chuggington, Chuck and Friends, and Daniel Tiger. 

~Went to the splash pad at Stallings Park for the first time.  He was apprehensive at first but warmed up to it pretty quickly and then didn't want to leave.

~We moved and he is doing really great with the transition (thankfully!).

~When he walks in a room, he'll say "Hi Mama!" (or Hi to whomever is in the room) in the sweetest voice.

~I think he has a back molar coming in.  He can be a little bit of a bear.

~Really despises having his diaper changed.  Always a battle.

~We don't have a bathtub where we are living now... just a stand-up shower.  He actually does pretty well with it and it makes it go a lot faster too.

~Waiting to even attempt potty training.  For one, he shows no interest and two... I don't want a potty training toddler and newborn at the same time.  Yikes!

~Picks up his food and hands it to you when he's done.  You have to pay attention that that's what he's trying to do or else it will end up in the floor (not that I know this....)

Lots of pictures! Didn't get any with my real camera recently.  Need to do that once more before Sawyer makes his grand entrance :)

*I put several of Maddox's birthday gifts aside so I could pull them out later and he'd have something new to play with.  Glad I did because I really needed a distraction for him tonight while Darren was working in the other room.
*Sorry kiddo.... too much junk in your trunk and you get it from your mama :)
