18 months

At 18 months you are getting more and more like a kid and not a baby. You say a lot of words like daddy, doggie, cheese, eat, water, rhino, dino, me, hi, bye, mickey, paw patrol, tick tock, snack, i do, and more.

You still sleep average 6-6 and 9-11 for nap. You live for animals and would give anything for a cat. You like cheese, yogurt, eggs, and milk the best. 

You were 34" and 26.15 lbs. 


You dressed up as a monkey for Halloween. We went to AFIT trick or treating and you did great holding out your bucket for candy. The next day we had friends over for a spooky playdate. At night we went our the neighborhood. It was late for you but you were a trooper. A lollipop perked you right up when you had enough.


We get our moneys worth from our annual pass to Boonshoft. This month we went with Collin and again with school friends. You go nuts for the turtle. But also have a spot spot for the grocery store. The animals rank high too.

Run around fun time

We had a fun family day to Run around fun time. It was a blast and I see many more visits in our future. You went crazy over a bounce house filled with balls. You liked the lemonade stand quite a bit too. And who could forget the stuffed cat you carried everywhere.

We spend a lot of time in our backyard. We are lucky to have a swing set and lots of toys like tball set and water table.


We had a playdate with a friend of RJ's from school Cayden. He was so great with you spinning you and playing chase. You love getting a chance to play with the big kids at the park. He has a little brother too, but he still has some growing up to do before he can keep up with your speed.

Central Park

As you can see we spend a lot of time at playgrounds and you are a daredevil on the slides. This is the park close to our house. You and your brother played race on the slides but you didn't know you were playing a game.

Auntie Sam

We were so lucky to have Auntie Sam come visit us. You took to her right away and were jumping all over her, which amazed me because you usually take time to warm up. We took her to Steak and Shake, elephants, apple picking, apple festival with a hay ride, and a lot of playing around the house. You loved sitting on her lap and climbing on her.

Collin birthday party

We went to a great birthday party full of fun games, a magic show, balloon animals, face painting, and cupcakes too. Your fav part was throwing bean bags into cans to knock them over. The snacks like popcorn and cheese weren't bad either.

Sun flowers

We went to play in a big patch of sunflowers. You ran nuts smelling them all. We also stopped at youngs for a pumpkin picture.

Big slide park

We found a new park with a giant slide. You are always willing to try what the big kids are doing. You go zooming down. After we got ice cream at Friendlys and even a stop for dog food or to see the kittyyyyyyy as you would say. 

Orcherdly park

We could move in to this psrk its amazing how much they have to do. Your fav is the see saw and spinning things. Swings are up there too.

Children's museum

We went to a new children's museum in cincinatti. They had a lot of great things for your age like a lego area and supermarket. You loved running around checking everything out.

At 17 months you say doggie, daddy, RJ, and hi atleast 15 times a day. Other words that get used only once in a while include duck, cheese, moo, read, bye, yuck, me.

I am amazed by the word count so keep up the good work.

Mall play area

You love to play at the mall play area. You go down the slide backwards a lot. They got a new car to drive so now I chase you running from the play area to that car over and over .

Nana visit

Nana came to visit and we did a lot of fun things with her like Boonshoft, Milk shakes, custard, playground, play places, shopping, and a lot of books. 

Stick playground

We went to a nature reserve full of playground equipment made from rocks and sticks.

Ice cream

We spent much of the summer eating ice cream. I would guess from the amount in your face you enjoy it very much.

Fire truck festival

We went to a fire truck festival. You got to sit in the drivers seat of a few trucks old and new. You threw a big fit when it was someone elses turn so I will take that to mean you enjoyed it.

15 months

You say a few words to include Hi, Daddy, RJ, Bye, and maybe Fenway. You are happy most of the time. You take 1-2 naps depending on the day ranging from 1.5-3 total hours of naps. You sleep 6PM to 6:30AM most nights. You have 12 teeth that you are working on. You love to run and climb and keep us on our toes by doing things like standing on the coffee table. Your favorite foods include yogurt, bananas, pouches, and mac and cheese.

You were 32 inches and 24.9 pounds, which is 76% and 55% at your doctor visit yesterday.

Cincinnati zoo

I took you to the Cincinnati zoo for dollar day and while it was super crowded you didn't mind. You loved the elephants, polar bears, and petting zoo goats the best. It was fun to see your level of interest grow with each zoo trip we take and let's face it we go to a lot of zoos.


We love going to Young's to see the animals and play in the play area, which includes slides for you. You go nuts when you get close to the animals screaming high pitched things while also screaming hi hi hi at the same time. 

Play places

You are getting so brave at play places. You go thru all the tubes and zoom down the slides. You always look back at us so proud of yourself too.
