18 months old!

This was after his shot, I usually take it before, but the doctor was too quick today
Weight: 22.4 lbs..........9%
Height: 33 inches.........72%
Head Circ: 18 inches....6%

This little guy is 18 months old. He is getting so big. We went to the doctor today and he really does not like the nurse. I guess he knows that she is mean and gives him shots. He likes the doctor though. He is healthy and doing really well. He had to get one shot today and was really sad about it. But there are no more shots for him for quite awhile so that is good.

He is not talking yet. The other day the pantry was open and he was pointing at it. I was trying to figure out what he wanted and he was saying something. When I finally picked up the juice I realized that is what he said. The next day Ryan was trying to get him to say it and he said it. So I guess that juice is his first word. He will shake his head for no and lately has been nodding his head and saying "SSSS" for yes(ssss). It is pretty good. For not being able to talk he does communicate pretty well with us. He points to some of his body parts like head, hair, nose, toes, tummy, eyes when we say those things. He is climbing all over. He can know get onto our tall chairs and the coffee table and can almost get onto the couch. He has started loving to watch Sesame street. He likes Elmo. He has recently gone to one nap a day. I was kind of not wanting that, but it has turned out to be pretty good because he sleeps in later now and most days sleeps longer in the afternoon. Lucas has 16 teeth now and loves getting his teeth brushed. After he drinks his milk at night I say to him "Time to brush your teeth" and he runs to the bathroom and makes faces in the mirror as I give him his fluoride and brush his teeth.

Lucas is a very happy boy. Now that it is spring (finally!) we go on walks and go to the park and he loves being outside. He gets so sad when we have to go inside. He loves looking at birds and dogs. He thinks dogs are the best thing ever. And he likes to chase after the birds.
