19 Months

Just a week before Daniel turned 19 months we finally had his 18 month well baby checkup. He now weighs 27 lbs and is 32 inches tall! This puts him in the 50th percentile for each. The doctor said he was doing great. He was not really happy to be at the doctor's office, I think partly because his appointment was smack in the middle of nap time and partly because perhaps he remembered that most times going there means shots! He was a brave little guy though and took his 2 shots better than I did. We have also made the transition to one nap. We reached a point where Daniel was not really taking two naps, so if he fell asleep during the morning nap he wouldn't take an afternoon nap which made for a long cranky day for everyone. He is now going down after lunch and taking a nice restful nap making everyone happy. This also gives us much more time for fun morning activities!
Daniel is doing great, he is very into cars and trucks and basically anything that moves. He also likes to climb, especially up onto things like the coffee table in the living room. Then he looks at me, grins and shakes his finger while saying No no no.... He has now also become extremely picky about what he eats. All winter he ate tons of fresh fruit, now he won't go near it. Very frustrating now that blueberries (his fave all winter) are in season! He is showing interest in the potty but doesn't like to actually sit on it yet. He does enjoy flushing though and watching the water go bye bye (sometimes he even waves and blows kisses). Hope our water bill doesn't go up too much! We've been having fun playing at the park, especially blowing bubbles. Camp has begun, not much different than "school", same place, same days, same kids but lots more time outside and a little less structure. Daniel seems to enjoy his 2 days a week there and it gives me time to run errands without help! Our summer has started off well and we look forward to more outside fun!

Daniel down the shore

Here is a video put together by Uncle Jason of Daniel's weekend down the shore without Mommy and Daddy.
