Peyton 18 Months

Noah 18 Months

Peyton's personality is really starting to show up right about now.  This is really the time I start to enjoy so much more than those baby moments.  He's really started to understand what we ask him to do and is getting so good at playing with Noah and also by himself.  Life is good for this kid.

  • Stats: Size 6 Diapers | 18mo -2T clothing
  • Size: 26.8lbs
  • New Abilities: Well the last update I talked about how he could walk.  That's so crazy to think that was just a little bit back.  It seems like he's been walking forever since he can run and climb on the couch.  He wrestles with Noah and is completely ok to go up and down the stairs on his own. Time sure does go quick.   New this month would be the total ability to move anywhere on his own, but really the mental leaps he's had are the most impressive.  He really understands so much more and is starting to communicate so much better.
  • Communication:  Peyton can really express his feelings well but also is super stubborn which is becoming quite obvious.  If he doesn't get what he wants he really just throws a fit so we started doing calm down moments by putting him in the mudroom away from everyone for a couple minutes until he's ready to join the rest of the family and that's really seemed to at least change the behavior at that time. 
  • Sleep: His night time sleep has settled for now.  Looks like we might be over those weird middle of the night wake ups.  He's sleeping 7:30p-7/8a with an occasional early morning wake up.  He's dropped his second nap - right around the end of the last update - so like 16ish months and is now taking a hefty nap at the same time as Noah.  Really convenient actually.   12:30ish for 2-3 hours.
  • Mom Check-In: After being sick for the last two weeks I feel like I'm finally getting back to normal.  I've started to get a little more tired just doing regular everyday things but I will still say this pregnancy has been the easiest.  I don't feel like I'm going to burst at any moment and although I'm ready for baby to be here, it's not because I'm miserable.
