Cameron's "Young Toddler" class at daycare...isn't he so cute in the yellow?
All dressed up for school. Yes, he has a huge bump on his forehead from where he fell on the toy chest at school.

I think this might be my favorite age so far. Yes, he's always been cute and we've enjoyed him for sure but this is the age where he can talk more, play more, and just enjoy everything more. He is a little chatterbox at home...he gets a little quieter around other people. He is a ball of energy from about 15 minutes after he wakes up until naptime...and then it starts all over again until bedtime. Since he's had the tubes put in a month ago, we really feel like he's been much happier....I guess he just feels better! He will fuss from time to time but overall, he's happy and good-natured.
He started swim lessons a few weeks ago and I need to post videos of it on here because it's so cute. He absolutely loves it! Nathan has to get in the pool with him right now but by mid-summer, he should be on his own in the pool with the instructor. Our original plan wasn't to start him until the beginning of the summer but we decided we might as well get him started now. He loves the water and splashes around constantly. He is getting better about kicking his legs and holding his breathe when he's put underwater. When I was little, I LOVED swimming so I think he's going to take after me with that love.
We took him to his 18 month appt at the doctor this week and he got his last vaccine until he turns 4....yea!!!! Here are his stats:
Height: 34 inches (90th percentile)
Weight: 26.5 (80th percentile)
And I can't remember what his head cir was but he has a big head like his dad. He wears 18-24 month clothes (mostly 24 months) and I almost always stretch the neckholes in t-shirts when I put them over his head.
One of his new favorite words to say is "Yeah!" when he's asked if he wants to go do something or eat something. He gets very excited. I don't think his vocabulary has grown too much since my last post but as I said above, he really is talking more and more. We have taken the pacifier away except for naps and bedtime so that has also helped with the talking. We'll give it to him on long car rides like to MP but that's about it. My plan is to take it away completely this summer but we'll see.
On weekends, we've been allowing him to eat one treat a day...we took him to get a cup of sherbert two weeks ago and he loved it. Last weekend, we went to Braum's to get a cup of soft serve yogurt...again, he loved it and tried to talk to everyone in the place (and said "bye bye" really loud while waving when we left). He clearly loves sweets like his mom....both a curse and a blessing.
He is still obsessed with the Nick Jr show "Bubble Guppies" and continues to ask for it all of the time. He also likes "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood" on PBS Kids, "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" on Disney Jr and "Doc McStuffins" on Disney Junior. He would watch videos of himself on Nathan's iPhone all day if we let him....we have to limit it because he gets really upset when you take it away. Probably what he is most obsessed with overall is a "ball". He LOVES balls. He throws them, kicks them, rolls them, you name it. Anything that is a circle in a picture is called a "ball". It's so funny. :)
We're trying to soak this age in because so many people have told us how fun it is...and how fast it goes by.
