Happy 17 months to my not-so-little boy! Yesterday Harry turned the big 1-7. His recent haircut makes him look so much older!
Height: He seems to have had a growth spurt in the past month so my best guess would be 33.5 inches.
Diaper Size: Size 4 disposables. He was leaking through his regular diapers at night so we recently bought some Huggies Overnites which have worked pretty well.
Clothing Size: 12-18 month clothes, size 5 shoes. Most of his pants are too short but I'm hesitant to buy anymore because soon enough it'll be shorts weather.
Eating: Eating has been a bit of a challenge this month, he's been very finicky with what he likes. Like one week he'll like a chicken dish I make and then the next week he won't touch it. His favorite foods are fruits and canned veggies (he won't touch most fresh ones unfortunately). He loves: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwis, clementine oranges, canned pineapples, canned lima beans, canned green beans and canned carrots. With the canned veggies I always rinse them to get rid of as much salt as possible.
Sleeping: Sleep has been pretty good the past month. He hasn't woken up during the night as much and I put a baby gate in the bedroom doorway to prevent him from walking out if he does wake up. Keeping him in the dark bedroom helps get him to sleep faster if he gets out of bed. Naps have been a little up in the air but in general he takes one a day.
Teeth: 12 still as far as I can tell. However, he was fussy and clingy yesterday afternoon and it looks like his gums are a little swollen. So, a couple more might be making their appearance soon.
Communication: He has been doing an amazing job with his talking ever since he uttered his first words nearly a month ago. I am so proud of him! He's still mostly in the phase of copying what we say and doesn't say much without being encouraged. He will ask for juice ("joo") sometimes. And he pointed to a little girl at the store and said baby. Oh! And he told me he had a poopy ("puppy," hehe) the other day. But he pretty much tries to say everything we say. Hardly any of it comes out right, but it's so cute and just awesome that he tries so hard to talk now. Some of the words he's said so far: daddy, mommy (just a handful of times), cracker, baby, juice, Pearl, ball, high chair, hi, and poopy. Like I said, he tries to imitate nearly everything we say but those have been the most easily understandable so far.
Some pictures I took yesterday.
