Happy 18 months, Liam!!

Oh, um...hello there, blog readers.  Sorry that it's been awhile.  I find myself completely wrapped up in holiday preparation, traveling, new appliance buying (dishwasher breaking = tragedy), new car buying (say what??  yeah, that will be another post), and just work stuff in general.

But...I'm here today!  Liam had his 18 month check up yesterday, and I shall now rename him "Chunkers".  Brian says that's mean and will cause him to be in therapy later in life, but whatever.  It's a compliment at this age. 

Height: 33.5 inches (80th percentile)
Weight: 27 lbs (82nd percentile)
Head circumference: 49 cm (87th percentile)

So, yeah....Chunkers it is.  :)  To be honest, baby fat is one of the things I miss the most when they start to slim down more into the toddler years!  The little dimples, the rolls...I love it all.  I'm so glad he's still squishy. 

The appointment went well, he is right on track developmentally.  I've lost count of his words at this point, it seems like he had a major explosion a few weeks ago, and all of a sudden, can repeat nearly anything you say, and has new words that he's using on his own everyday.  He got 2 shots at the appointment, but now he's done with vaccines until he turns 4. 

It wouldn't be a post without some cute pictures!  Here is one of him, doing what he does best.....checking out his big brother, and doing the same thing!

Oh hey, you didn't need these pumpkins, right?

It's been a fun 18 months, Liam!  We look forward to all of the rest.

Happy 18 months Liam! What a cutie. Isn't this age so fun - pre toddler tantrums & just soaking everything in and saying new stuff all the time? Eamon loves books so its "book book" all the time and he picks them up and then backs his little behind onto my lap! So fun!

18 months already?! I have to admit that I am so envious of all of Liam's words! Ben is still very much in the grunting / pointing / limited use of words stage. Maybe Liam can talk to Ben!
