nineteen months

i find it really sad that i haven't managed to put up a single post between our eighteen and nineteen month updates... if anyone knows how to add an extra couple hours into the day, let me know!

And without further delay, here's Brody at 19 months!
this last month has been rough on our little man.  it all started off a week after his well-baby checkup with the doctor.  cranky baby. fever. rash. another doctor visit. we left with a diagnosis of hand, foot and mouth disease (which i think we picked up there at our well check).  this led to four days home from school, lots of snuggles, ibuprofen and mommy patience.

one week later, a call from B's school that he has a fever.  two more days home from school.  the next monday, back to the pediatrician.  double ear infections. eczema flare up.  and an allergy response to who knows what...

but, i think we are finally on the mend.
weighing in at 22 pounds by our bathroom scale.  and growing like a weed.

he is wearing size 5 shoes, 24 month jammies, 18 month onesies and 18-24 month clothes. we had to adjust his cloth diapers to the biggest setting because he is so tall.  

meal time and diaper changes have become (or remained) a struggle.  favorite foods are chicken nuggets, string cheese, hot dogs, greek yogurt & applesauce.  i am thankful he is a good milk drinker still.   if he doesn't like something, he doesn't want it on his plate.  he offers up his whole plate to the nearest taker when he is through with it.  

'no' has become the newest word to use, but frequently are hearing the favorites: shoes, choo choo, jeep, truck, milk, dog dog, mama & dada.  newer words are Cas (for his teacher miss cassie), airplane, kay up (caleb, brody's BFF).  he is still using his sign language, and they are incorporating it into school lessons too.  we frequently see: all done, please, thank you, more, drink, eat and occasional diaper signing.
B has been a lot of fun recently (when he is feeling well), which makes me look forward to our summer adventures!
