My little man is 18 months old today!! I wanted to do a little 18 month post for my records :)
Sleep: Campbell is such a great sleeper. He always has been (well, once we started Babywise at 10 weeks) and I am so thankful for it. I credit the majority of it to Babywise but I also think he's just a great sleeper. He goes to bed between 7:30-8:00 and wakes up between 7:30-8:00. I actually think he wakes up around 7:00 but just lays there content for a long time. I think he needs that time to himself to "wake up" before letting me know he's ready to get his day started. He takes one nap and I usually put him down for his nap between 1:00-2:00 although he'd gladly lay down earlier or later. It just depends on our day and what all we have going on. He sleeps, on average, about 2 hours.
Clothes: Campbell is still making due in all of his 6-12 month summer clothes! A lot of the smaller 6-12 month clothes have been folded and put away but the bigger ones are still getting used. We're starting to get pretty limited on our wardrobe but thankfully those cooler temps are just a few short weeks away. He's all set and ready to go in his 12-18 month clothes as soon as fall is ready to arrive. He wears size 3 Freshly Picked moccs and size 12-18 month Kickee Pants. Although next week I'm putting those Kickee Pants up and getting out his new 18-24 month ones. Something about putting those Kickee Pants away always makes me sad.
Diapers: Pampers Cruisers Size 4 and Pampers Baby Dry at night, also Size 4. I think I may have bought my last size 4 box of diapers. I had decided it was time to go up a size but on the box it said something like 27-35 pounds for size 5 and it threw me. So I grabbed the 4's instead. Does anyone else always feel unsure of when it's time to move up a size in diapers because I sure do.
All About Campbell: I can't believe my little man is 18 months old!! Time is really flying. We're really starting to get an idea of what type of personality Campbell has. We hear all the time how "sweet" Campbell is. He really, really is!! Just a sweet little kiddo. His teachers at MDO say Campbell always walks in the room and greets everyone in there by waving and saying "hi!" Not surprising at all!!! He loves to wave and say hi. And it's really drawn out too---hiiiii! He still says bye with a D (dye!) signs "more" which means more, food, eat and hungry for him. Campbell stands in front of the oven to watch food cook. Haha! He's really good at telling you how the cow goes and kinda good at telling you how the sheep goes. He loves to call the hogs. Campbell says "there it is!" all the time. He's started tapping his foot when music plays. He loves all TV on Disney Jr although Mickey is still his hands down favorite. I believe I've turned my child into a neat freak. He always puts his toys up in the same place he found them (without me asking) and if something isn't in the "correct" spot he'll pick it up and put it where it's supposed to be. Campbell still loves to read. We read a lot of books before bedtime. He's really into those giant legos these days. He still enjoys stacking and nesting blocks although not nearly like he used to. He has a car that his Pops and Gamma got him for Christmas and he loves to get in it, shut the door, then wave and say "dye!" to me. Speaking of cars, Campbell is really starting to get into his cars now. He enjoys pushing them across the floor. Up until just about 2 weeks ago, I was able to leave the camera/monitor resting on the ledge of Campbell's crib. Can you believe that? He never messed with it! He suddenly started pulling it down during nap time so I had to stick it up high on his book shelves. Campbell has 8 (almost 10) teeth and he's such a trooper about letting me scrub and scrub and scrub those teeth every night. I'm terrified of him getting a cavity! Campbell still adores his sisters although we're having to teach him to be more gentle with them. He's much more rough than he used to be and he gets in trouble for it--a lot. He doesn't know any better but he has to learn!!
Campbell just melts me. I love this little man so much that it makes my heart feel like it's exploding sometimes. I have so much fun with my little sidekick and adore being his Mommy. He cracks me up and makes me smile. I want to squeeze him all the time and shower him with too many kisses. I can't even imagine life without my peanut. He has my heart.
