Last week I took him in for his shots and there again I did stuff I swore I would never do as a parent. Let him eat snacks to his little hearts content, crawl all over the chairs and myself as I filled out paperwork, run down the hall etc. Anyway here are the stats....drum roll....height-31.5 in (25%), head-48 cm(50%), and 22 lbs. (5%)
(who would ever 1.) take their ketchup face kid in public 2.) let their kid eat ketchup 3.)let their kid throw corn when there is clearly a sign that says to not throw it. Ugh some people these days. Maybe I should let them borrow my parenting books.)
Grant doesn't really talk much (must get that from me!!!!) but he understands most everything we say. He'll bring us stuff and try to tell us what it is. He likes to point a lot and say "uh uh uh oh". He loves anything with music and has pretty good rhythm. He's an awesome napper and loves the naptime routine we have. You can easily become friends with Grant by giving him gum. The Biggest Loser cast must have had an impact on him with all their hidden advertisements....if he starts requesting ziploc baggies I'll really be suspicious. He pretty much likes to eat anything except my homemade chicken pot pie, so basically anything that takes time to prepare he won't eat. I think meal times are my favorite because he almost always folds his arms, bows his head and sneaks little peeks up at us. It's fun to watch him be so sweet. I can't really think of anything that is different from other kids-I mean don't most 18 month olds like playing hide-n-seek and singing songs?
We go to play group most weeks and here is Grant in true fashion---playing off by himself. I have no idea what to do about this. If we are at a playground he just wants to walk around the grass. If we are by the grass he wants to climb on the trash can. I crave being around people so I just don't understand this. It's going to be a looong winter.
Can it be? Grant playing with a friend? I swear I didn't photoshop this in.
