Reed will be 21 months old very soon – or maybe 22 :-\ – its hard to keep track after the 1 year mark honestly… but if we round up, I suppose we could say he is almost 2. Hard to believe huh? Thought it be fun to do a little update here for my own personal milestone journaling on him.
Reed talks very little in english :) – he has his own baby language going on.
The only things I do understand that he says are.
Huh – which is typically what he says when you say his name.
Tay – for Okay
and he mimics almost any SOUNDS the boys make that make absolutely no sense.
He is a late talker… and you know thats ok. All my boys but Taite talked late. Almost age 3 before they really spoke well. I remember Doctors pressuring me on this so often with well baby checkups. Esp with Owen. Freaked me out! They almost made me feel like a failure as a mom when Id go in and they’d say “He should say this many words by now… he needs to be seen by a therapist if not.” – that sorta thinking just got on my nerves in the world of pediatric apts…. which is why I never go to them any more. I don’t think Reed has had a well check up since 6 months old.
Reed is doing great though. Gaining weight well finally. He still is on the bottle. Loves his milk.
He is a huge fan of GREENS and other veggies. If you throw him a handful of fried rice, he picks out the peas and carrots first. So cute.
Reed sleeps A LOT at night.
8pm – 9am most times.
He takes 1 nap a day. 1pm-3 or 4pm. Its crazy!
He took 7 mo. to sleep through the night… but when he started to sleep, he sure didn’t waste any time making up for those first 7 months :)
Reed loves the pool. Is a champ at diving under water.
His favorite toy is of course anything with wheels :) – he loves to push cars.
He is full of the most adorable expressions.
Easily upsetted by a “no” or rebuke. Funny how they learn what those are so early in life.
He SCREAMS his head off any time I leave him at church or with a sitter. Its pretty pathetic honestly. I have no idea how to break him of this :) – but we just say bye bye and wish him the best haha. They say he typically calms down after 5 minutes of tears. So sad :(
We love him so much and he could not be cuter. Even with his “photos” ops, he insist at raising that hand – love him.
