19 Months

Jaxson turned 19 months today! He’s now officially closer to two than one, and while J and I are both sad that our little boy is growing up so quickly, we are both more in love with him as the days go by. He’s such a wonderful little guy and we are so happy he is ours.

On to the updates!

New Skills

  • blowing his nose in a tissue
  • getting undressed – the other morning I went to go get him up and there his pants were, lying on the floor, his shirt only on his neck and around one arm
  • pulls up his pants when getting dressed and tries to put on his shoes by himself
  • feeds himself with a spoon
  • jumping! (which usually ends with him landing on his butt instead of his feet)
  • mimicking our singing or laughing, especially when Mamas are being silly
  • knocking (which he now does on doors, tables, walls, etc.)
  • fist-bumps or “knuckles”
  • smacking his lips (when putting on chapstick)
  • telling you if he went pee/poo

New Vocab

  • buh-bye
  • die-dee (diaper)
  • pee-pee/poo-poo
  • Oreo
  • bun (bunny)
  • bloon (balloon)
  • choo-choo
  • crinkles (sprinkles, when asked what kind of cookie he wants at Publix)
  • gnah-gnah (hungry, kind of like nom-nom)
  • door
  • cookie
  • cracker
  • store
  • Mall
  • play
  • pool
  • making sentences from every word he knows (such as “Mama car turtle pool guh-guh bubble”, which I’m sure makes sense to him but we’re still a little lost)

Likes

  • Harry the Bunny & Peek-a-Boo on BabyFirst TV
  • taking MoMo everywhere
  • cars/trucks/trains
  • playing peekaboo & hide and seek (hiding behind a wall until we find him or he decides to “boo!” us)
  • reading & telling us “stories”
  • playing the drums
  • hugs/kisses/snuggling with Mamas
  • giving treats to Bubba

Dislikes

  • bread & most meat (if you ask him if he’s going to be a vegetarian, he’ll nod his head yes – I swear we didn’t teach him this!)
  • Mama’s (or anyone really) crying
  • mean kids (he was absolutely horrified the other day at the Mall when one kid started hitting another, I thought he was going to lose his mind)
  • leaving Guh-Guh’s on days Grandpa watches him while J works
  • not having Terrapin anymore (we drained the tank this weekend and it is currently sitting empty until we turn it into a fish tank, and he keeps going up to it and crying “turtle? turtle!”)
  • teething (we can finally feel the upper left canine starting to poke through)

So that’s Jaxson’s month in a nutshell. He’s getting so big so fast! We had to turn him forward-facing in the car seat since his legs were so cramped up because they are so long! He seems much happier with this as he can see more out of the windows now. Last but not least, here are some pictures. 🙂
