18 months

I cannot believe that our little man is a year and a half old!
We had a fun filled morning today. We started the day off at the park. Bryce enjoyed climbing, sliding, and swinging. We ran a couple of errands after the park and then we headed to Barnes and Noble to play with the trains and read some books.

We finished off the morning with a visit to the doctor for Bryce's 18 month checkup. He was a fantastic patient this time. He screamed the entire time we were in the office at 15 months. Today he was calm, compliant, and he impressed with his skills. The doctor was impressed with Bryce's vocabulary and he was blown away when he could spell his name! Bryce weighed in at 22.5 pounds. He only gained .3 pounds in 3 months and he is in the 10th percentile for weight. He grew an inch an a half so he is 31.5 inches and that puts him in the 25th percentile for height.

Bryce has moved from repeating words and using 2 word phrases to almost talking in complete sentences. He says things like "open the door" and "watch me mama". He can tell you what he wants and what he doesn't want. He has definitely learned the word "no". I'm not particularly fond of the word because he doesn't always use it as an answer to a yes or no question, but we are working on it. The other day he asked for a banana so I got him one. When I gave it to him, he said "no, mama, other one". There were some very ripe bananas on the counter that he "thought" he wanted.

He has had square and circle down for a while, but now he recognizes triangle and I get the biggest chuckle every time he says it because it comes out triangagle. He has a great memory. He can answer questions about his day and past events. Sometimes he requires a good amount of "think time", but he usually gets it every time. Sometimes at night when he is laying in bed, we hear him talking out the events of his day. It's so cute! He has recently started putting his shoes on by himself (mostly his crocs which are easy for him to slip on). We're working on right and left and he gets them on the correct feet most of the time.

Bryce has had a bit of a fever since Monday evening. I took this picture of Bryce and Macy relaxing in Jason's recliner Tuesday morning. They were just too cute. He seems to be better today.
